The Endangered Review Blog Tour


The Endangered by S.L. Eaves
Publication Date: September 3, 2014
S&D Industries is a prominent pharmaceutical company based in New York. It has, for many years, appeared to exist only for the benefit of humanity, and this year's chief product seems no different. The company's CEO, whom we know only as Striden, announces the imminent delivery of a powerful flu vaccine. The true purposes of S&D are anything but philanthropic, however. The newly-engineered drug does not protect against flu. It turns people into werewolves.

The only group which stands a chance of resisting this change is a population of vampires. The foremost of them, who go by the name of The Endangered, are determined to turn back the mass werewolf infestation. Among them are an ambitious rebel named Catch and Lori, Catch's newly-turned protege. Catch has brought this treacherous world to Lori's doorstep and both their worlds are turned upside-down in the process. Secrets are exposed, alliances are formed. Blood is spilled as the vampires must do everything in their power to preserve both their own kind and that of their food supply.

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 leads us on an adventure as we travel the world battling all the while finding the truth is not always black & white. These characters were not bland, & definitely held my attention. The action is well portrayed in the cover art, these are vicious creatures out for blood after all. And...Happy endings are not on the menu. 
There were a few things that made me pause momentarily. Examples: the chapters come from different characters point of views without any advance notice or hint of who it is. This confused me momentarily while I had to read a bit ahead to determine which character we are now channeling. There are also a few times that we sort of skip from one place to another, but things were explained afterward. Eaves developed this huge conspiracy which she managed with stealth, & left me in complete shock. I look forward to reading more by this author!

TZPP Intern Andy Kubai   

Presently, Stephanie L. Eaves is a graduate student at Drexel University, pursuing her MBA. She received my undergraduate degree in Film from University of Pittsburgh. Originally from from West Chester, PA.she lived in Pittsburgh and Minneapolis before returning to the Philadelphia area, where she currently resides. Stephanie's professional background is in marketing, primarily in media and publishing industries. She sort of fell into marketing when she got tired of per diems on film sets and wanted a steady gig. She enjoys being in an environment that promotes creativity.

Stephanie loves to write. She's taken a number of writing courses with a focus on crime fiction and earned a certificate in Professional Writing while attending Pitt. She's also really into fitness, especially running and biking in her free time. While she readily confesses to being bit of a film and television junkie, music has always been a huge influence in nearly every aspect of her life and there's nothing like a good live band.

When home, she's never without a book in arm's reach.
