Welcome to our blog!
Amy and Jennifer ARE Seduced by Books. We’re both in our 30’s, moms, close friends, work together, and share many of the same interests including our love of reading. Amy grew up in Maryland and has been obsessed with Vampires for as long as she can remember. Jenn grew up in Florida and loves the furry, the fey, and the fangs, in that order. Currently we are both in Orlando, FL. When we can be pulled away from books, Amy loves to bake and Jenn loves to take pictures and scrap.
We decided to create a place where we could direct friends, and acquaintances for, book suggestions/recommendations (Jenn’s been known to talk to strangers on the train while traveling in NYC). Once we started out with a simple page, we evolved from there. Now we are sharing our book reviews, fun comments, recipes, and giveaways. We try to give reviews on new releases, pre-releases, and oldies but goodies that we read, or are reading. We’re going to be adding author interviews for established and up and coming authors soon.

Siege of Darkness by J W Baccaro

Siege of Darkness [Guardian of the Seventh Realm Book 2]Tragedy strikes Zithel, and the city of monks goes up in flames. The Earth-Wizard Mazarian has disappeared, and the army of Asgoth has taken back the Wizard Crystals of the Elements, ready to deliver them into the hands of their master: the Demon Lord Abaddon, where they will be corrupted and used against the very elements they were created to protect, deforming the world to a blackened void. As Darshun Luthais—the chosen Guardian of earth—emerges from the mystical Shajin Island, having completed his training, ready to combat the forces of evil, he not only finds himself in the center of this chaos, but is also torn in different directions. Part of him longs to obey the wisdom of the Elders by relocating the crystals and fleeing Asgoth, while his Nasharin nature thirsts for battle, eager to take on the many trials that stand in his way, keeping him from what he desires most, challenging Abaddon, the ultimate terror.

Siege of Darkness is book 2 in the Guardian of the Seventh Realm series.  Jason Baccaro writes this series like an old pro.  

Powerful read - mega battles as Darshun struggles to fight being taken over by the Dark...Dar is a cocky warrior, but as much as he is cocky, he's smart and calculating, and a little lucky.  Returning to find things not as they were, he's captured.  Held captive with a new friend, Kelarin (part Elf), Dar learns more about his past and his biological father.  There's a reason Dar has been picked as Guardian, and as much as he fights the title, he kicks ass in combat.  We're in a war - prepare to be defeated!   Dar and his crew against the Demon lord and his gang...I'm betting on Dar.   

Baccaro keeps the action enthralling and purposeful.  As Dar grows the story is morphing right along with him.  There's no over done descriptions in this series.  I'm looking forward to Book 3 (The Coming of the Light) - I've seen the cover art (gorgeous), and know that Kelarin has to play a major role. Bring it on!
