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.

Zombies Sold Separately by Cheyenne McCray

Zombies Sold Separately: A Night Tracker NovelNyx hates Zombies. Seriously. Hates. Zombies. Ever since she was a youngling, she’s been haunted by them. And even though she’s a big girl now—a half-human, half-Drow private eye, to be precise—Nyx bristles at the mere thought of the walking dead.  
Meanwhile, the corpses of humans and paranorms alike are turning up all over New York City. Now it’s up to Nyx to find out who—or what—is behind this series of horrific attacks. But it’s only a matter of time before Nyx is drawn deeper into her darkest fears…and her worst nightmare about meeting a real, flesh-and-blood-hungry, body-snatching Zombie comes blindingly to life. Or death…(courtesy of Amazon)

I had a roller coaster of emotions in this book.  I love Cheyenne McCray and her kick butt chicks.  Adam was 'so so' for me in this series, but Nyx is super-great.  So pair her up with someone not ‘so so’ and oooh damn am I even more interested. 

McCray creates characters that you can’t help but connect with, they have their quirks or their crazy pets, or both.  Regardless, when I open one of her books (and I’ve done 3 of her series so far) you just fall in place and go.  I was intrigued in some of this book, devastated, and hopeful, all while trying to save the city.  And who doesn’t love a guy that will go shopping with you at Victoria Secret and hold the bag??  - AND he can kick ass - Sign me up! Amazing back story on Nyx past with the Zombies.

As the Night Tracker series continues on, this book was one of those pivotal books, where the story moves along, but the direction could be changing.  McCray hasn’t done me wrong yet, so I’m on pins and needles for the next one.  I gotta see where Nyx is going and with who!
