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.

Siren Song by Jenna Black

Sirensong: A Faeriewalker NovelWhen Dana is invited to Faerie to be officially presented at the Seelie Court, it’s no easy decision. After all, everyone knows Titania, the Seelie Queen, wants her dead. But Titania claims not to be the one behind the death threats; and her son, Prince Henry, makes the decision a whole lot easier when he suggests Dana might be arrested for (supposedly) conspiring with her aunt Grace to usurp the Seelie throne. So she and her father better do as they're told . . .
The journey through Faerie is long—and treacherous. Dana thought it would be a good idea to have friends along, but her sort-of-boyfriend, Ethan, and her bodyguard’s son, Keane, just can’t seem to get along, and Kimber’s crush on Keane isn’t making things any easier. When a violent attack separates Dana from their caravan, the sexy Erlking saves her just in the nick of time . . . and makes it clear that he hasn’t given up on making her his own.
Arriving at Titania’s beautiful palace should be a relief. But Dana is soon implicated in an assassination attempt against Titania’s granddaughter, and is suddenly a fugitive, forced to leave her father behind as she and her friends flee for their lives. Will she be able to prove her innocence before the forces of the Seelie Court—or, worse, the Erlking—catch up with her? And will she save her father before he pays the ultimate price in her stead?(courtesy of Amazon)

Siren Song is the third and last planned in the Faeriewalker series (from what I've seen).  I am very sad to see this story end, but beyond pleased with the ending.  

From the moment I cracked open glimmerglass, I was in the midst of a crazy adventure as Dana leaves her mom in hopes of a better life with her dad.  As Dana has journeyed in these three books, she's becoming even more mature.  One thing she never gives up is her loyalty to protect her friends and family.  Almost to a fault, Dana puts herself in dangers way to ensure their safety.  I LOVE the deal she had with the Erlking (whom by the way I would like a book about all his own). 

Dana's character shows young adult readers about willpower and control.  Ethan shows them the kind of quality you need in a guy - the willingness to wait when you matter to them.  Keane and Kimber are a great set of supporting characters for Dana.  About the only bad thing I could see is that there isn't more of this series with twists and turns to keep us riding along.  

Siren Song is definitely full of mystery and although there is a lot of travel in the book, it's needed as Dana and her entourage are uncovering more of themselves to bring forward a complete ending.
