It takes the concept of cult like terrorist groups forming around the globe to create mayhem and applies it to werewolf packs plotting a bio-terrorism attack, dealing in weapons, and infecting humans. But is definitely more like Underworld than Twilight :-) (less)

Strong debut, complex plot, once it gets going it's hard to put down! I'm being generous with 5 starts because I cannot believe this is the author's first book, but even honestly I'd still give it a 4. This book ends stronger than it starts and I really enjoyed the main character's (Lori's) struggle to adapt to her new world amidst a war. Though she seemed to have a bit of a violent streak as a human, so it may not have been much of a transition haha. The first half of the book focuses on charac ...more

This novel explores a world in which vampires and werewolves are at war with each other, unbeknownst to the human population who remain ignorant of the supernatural. We are introduced to Lori, a college student, who is "recruited" to the vampire cause. The novel follows her journey as she adjusts to her new life and learns about her new abilities as a vampire. As the novel progresses, Lori and her fellow vampires uncover a werewolf conspiracy to take over the world. It is up to them to stop the ...more

Very inventive plot, with characters you really come to care about, in spite of them being vampires. This is not my usual genre of book, and yet I found the details of the vampire and werewolf worlds fascinating. The author raises moral issues which give the book substance--the age old dilemmas of whether killing is ever justified, and are the ones who kill for a good cause or to protect the innocent on higher moral ground than those who kill for the wrong reasons. The protagonist is a very comp ...more

Fun, gripping read! It's more of a crime fiction story than what you'd typically expect from a vampires v. werewolves fantasy. In fact I was surprised the lengths taken to avoid some of the cliches (no spoilers here but none of the characters are safe). It is a bloodbath; not very gory, but there's no shortage of violence and action. Under the veil of this paranormal world, the story takes on theme of corporate corruption and I'm thinking twice about getting a flu shot this year haha. ...more

Wow!!! Loved it!!!! This war between the werewolves and the vampires....

We see Lori really struggle with being turned a vampire, she was happy with her life and didn't want to leave it behind, she didn't want to be part of this world, she has these feelings for Catch and feels this pull towards him. Now she is thrown into this war and must learn how to fight. I liked that she didn't except this new life with Catch, she mourned her old life and when she finally gets some answer on why she was tur

Vampires & Werewolves ... No Sparkles Allowed!, September 18, 2014

The Endangered was fast paced, & hard to put down. Eaves does
not hold back when thrusting us into the brutal world of vampires & werewolves where there aren't any glittery escapes. We see the much harsher side of their world yet we still get a glimmer of love peeking in.

We start out on the sidelines of college student life, but are quickly brought face to face with those who lurk in the shadows. Unraveling the mystery of the past

The Endangered by S.L.Eaves

I really enjoyed this book. It's fast paced, action packed and has great characters.

As the story unfolds Catch, who is a vampire is sent to turn Lori a college student. The reason is because she can see things before they happen or so she is told. She doesn't know this about her self. She also has a brain tumor and will die soon but she doesn't know this about herself either. Adrian who is one of the oldest vampires a pureblood has sent Catch to enlist her for their

S.L. Eaves' debut novel is an exhilarating ride from beginning to end. The reader is instantly thrown into a seat gripping scene, which makes the reader want to know how these characters arrived there.
The intensity does not wane as the story unfolds. The reader quickly learns of a war between the vampires and werewolves which has been raging for some time. The main character, Lori, is a college aged girl, who has been chosen to be turned into a vampire, because they believe she has a special ab

I really did enjoy this book, it's reminiscent of Underworld Awakenings, and the war, yes that is a good thing!

In a world where humans still do not know that vampires and werewolves exist (along with other things that go bump in the night) other than in books and movies.
Lori is a human who is turned onto the word of a pure blood vampire. He senses that she could help turn the tide in the war with the wolves. A romance blossoms between Catch and Lori as he teaches her about her new life and the r

Way back in September I participated in a blog tour for the release of S. L. Eaves' book, The Endangered. Part of the material provided to those of us hosting the tour was an Advance Review Copy of the book. I started reading it right away but then life got away from me and I didn't finish it until Christmas. All of which means that this review is four months later than planned. (Warning: There may be Spoilers ahead.)

The story itself is excellent. It's not your typical Vampires vs Werewolves sto

Original take on a familiar genre. So this werewolf is pissed b/c decades ago a vampire (or group of?) tried to kill him (and they think they succeeded) so he sets fire to a covenant where hundreds reside and the few that remain devote their existence to getting revenge. The main villain, this werewolf that started the whole thing, grows up and emerges as a wealthy business owner. He and his brother now run a pharma company that's a front for crazy experiments they're doing in an attempt to find ...more

Would you put Dracula in charge of the blood bank?

Because that is what S.L.Eaves has done and rather brilliantly too. In a world where werewolves are plotting for domination, the vampires, quite practically plan to stop them. After all when humans become an endangered species, what will the vampires eat? It clearly needs to stop before the vampires are endangered themselves.

Enter Lori, an unturned human who stumbles on the simmering dark under world and is recruited to the vampire cause. This

First time author Eaves, hits the ground running in this exciting and clever novel. The fight scenes immerse you in the action as you leap and thrust your sword with Lori and Deacon. The idea of converting mortals to werewolves thru a vaccine is not only clever but makes you pause when getting that next needle. I anxiously await Eaves' next novel to see what adventures await us. ...more

From the kick-ass cover to the unique story line, The Endangered really does have it all! Main character Lori and the trials and tribulations she faced were easy to relate to. Between the action, romance, and suspense, I couldn't put this one down. Definitely a must read!

Thank you to Whitney at Zharmae Publishing Press for gifting me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Okay so I don't mean to but I was unconsciously comparing this book to Twilight as I was reading it and afterwards when I was putting this review together. I think that's just going to be how it's going to be for every book containing vampires and werewolves in general now. Bleh. I found it interesting that in Twilight, the werewolves were the protectors of the humans while i

If Twilight and Throne of Glass had a baby, this would definitely be it.

To my surprise, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The synopsis left me intrigued, but confused as well, so I didn't know what to expect from the story. Not saying that I didn't think this book had any potential, I'm usually a little weary when reading about "supernatural" beings anyway, but I knew if the story was anything like it's cover, then it was

At least they don't have sparkly skin.

Let's face it, vampire stories are a dime-a-dozen. This is different though, it has vampires AND werewolves (my favourite creatures of the evil variety). Okay -I know. That's not really different either. Kate Beckinsale in her black, skintight jammies (queue Homer Simpson drool sound effect) squeezed the life out of that genre with the Underworld juggernaut. And of course that ridiculously fluffy Twilight series. I guess this book is more of an Action Thril
The vampires and werewolves are at war; i.e., Underworld without the awesome graphics. Our protagonist Lori is a college student recruited by the vampires to aid them in the war. Her mentor Catch is a formidable warrior and introduces Lori to the pros and cons of vampiric life. Catch is unfamiliar with the responsibilities of a mentor but in the process becomes close to Lori in a budding relationship. The werewolves have an ulterior motive concealed within the pangs of war.

I received this book in exchange for a review. This book was really good and kept me interested all the way through it! If you like stories about vampires or werewolves, you'll like this book. It was fast-paced and full of action, but still easy to understand. Overall, I highly recommend this book. I did notice, however, that it was riddled with spelling and grammar errors and areas where the text constantly switched between past and present tense, such as using the present tense "begins" in one ...more

This is a fantastic read. The Narrator does a fantastic job. If your a lover of the Supernatural this is definitely a must read. There are twists and turns that have you on the edge of your seat. I definitely recommend.

Underworld - Rewritten
The story is engaging enough but this could have been much better if there were:
Fewer head hops, and time jumps.
Also the story could have began much later, somewhere around the one year mark of Lori's turning.
The invisible in the mirror trick could have been done differently, like mirrors reflecting the true form of the vampires rather than their human disguises.
The plot is complex but the story focuses more on the Protagonist's mindset.

I will preface this review by saying this is one of the first vampire/werewolf books that I have ever read. I was actually a bit skeptical at first since this isn't my typical genre. So if you are new to this like me and debating if you should get it, do it! You will not be disappointed. Don't let the genre hold you back from experiencing something new. I would give it 5 stars but I tend to save the 5 stars for the "changed my life" kinda books. But otherwise, it was great. Tons of action that k ...more
