About the Author

Lynne Cantwell grew up on the shores of Lake Michigan. She worked as a broadcast journalist for many years; she has written for CNN, the late lamented Mutual/NBC Radio News, and a bunch of radio and TV news outlets you have probably never heard of, including a defunct wire service called Zapnews. Lynne’s vast overeducation includes a journalism degree from Indiana University, a master’s degree in fiction writing from Johns Hopkins University, and a paralegal certificate. She currently lives near Washington, DC, with her daughter and her daughter’s cat. Her third novel and her first urban fantasy, Seized: Book One of the Pipe Woman Chronicles, was released in March.

More About the Author

Lynne Cantwell has been writing fiction since the second grade, when the kid who sat in front of her showed her a book he had written, and she thought, "I could do that." The result was "Susie and the Talking Doll," a picture book illustrated by the author about a girl who owned a doll that not only could talk, but could carry on conversations. The book had dialogue but no paragraph breaks.

Today, after a twenty-year career in broadcast journalism and a master's degree in fiction writing from Johns Hopkins University (or perhaps despite the master's degree), Lynne is still writing fantasy. She is also a contributing author at Indies Unlimited. She lives near Washington, DC.

I really enjoyed this book. Naomi is a lawyer living in Denver, and her boyfriend Brock works in the same firm. I liked that the plot picked up pretty quickly in the first chapter, and all of the characters were well-written and had clear goals and hardships, strengths and weaknesses. The author clearly knows her subject very well, and the Native American mythology was very interesting without being heavy-handed.

All in all, it was a very good read and I can't wait for the sequel!

3.5 out of 5 stars, this is an interesting book that puts an interesting spin on what would happen when "the beginning of end" happens, or when "doomsday" sort of arrives, only you get to find out about it from the "key players" point-of-view. It puts a fascinating (and highly debatable) spin on what is going on between our gods or with our main "God." When reading it I thought it was a unique mix of Children of the Goddess Series (Eternal Guardian (Children of the Goddess)), House of Night Series (Hidden (House of Night Novels)), and Mercy Thompson Series (River Marked (Mercy Thompson, Book 6)) only set in a contemporary-type of setting with a completely different plot (of course).

The characters are entertaining, intense, funny, and quirky (or as Naomi would say, "woo-woo"). It'll be interesting to see where the author is going to take the story from here since it's lined up that it can really go anywhere!

I recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys a good paranormal mystery that has a little bit of romance in it!

I expected to enjoy Seized, the first book in Lynne Cantwell's Pipe Woman Chronicles, because I am a fan of Ms. Cantwell's direct, journalistic writing style and wry wit from her Indies Unlimited blog posts. What I didn't expect was that Seized kept me up late several nights in a row because it was so hard to stop reading. The story started easily in the realm of the familiar, with Naomi, a smart mediator who seems to have it all: the powerful job, the handsome boyfriend, and the best friend who understands her better than she understands herself. But wait...we know that nothing comes easily in fiction without consequence. So things twist up a bit when said best friend urges her to tag along on a New Age adventure. Several rounds in a sweat lodge release more than perspiration, including a visit from White Buffalo Calf Pipe Woman, a mysterious Native American spirit that weaves in and around Naomi's life, tasking her with a near-impossible challenge for a mediator...no, for anyone. Lynne's writing style (and choice of first-person narration) is key here. I became deeply invested in Naomi's future, and the author rides a nice, believable, and relatable line between the protagonist's cynicism with the happenings around her and her faith that it's all for a greater good. The story is smart and thought provoking, the fantasy element sophisticated and well integrated into the storyline. Never did I feel that this was fantasy with a story attached or vice versa. It just worked so well. I'm eager to read the rest of the series.

Seized, book one of the Pipe Woman Chronicles by Lynne Cantwell is a unique read that is imaginative and mysterious. Caught my attention early on, keeping me on the edge of my seat. This fast paced story is well written and a fresh escape into uncharted territory. Nothing was predicable as Seized kept me guessing.

The author does a great job of writing a fictional supernatural/paranormal? story that in ways seems real. She has a great gift of making what seems impossible feel possible.

The clear writing style eases you into the story in a effortless way. Instantly I was absorbed into the story and was curious to see where this adventure would lead me. This is a cozy read that I inhaled with very little work on my part. Not my genre of choice but in this case, the writing and the storyline was so gripping that I didn't want to put it down once I started. This is a great start to a very successful series.

Honestly, I never did figure out what I had that the other girls didn't. It wasn't that I wasn't impressed by his looks; I was drooling right along with everyone else. It wasn't that I played hard to get, or any of the other annoying games some women play to attract a man; the only thing I did differently, really, was to hold myself apart from his seraglio, and the only reason I did that was because I was sure there was no point in trying for him. As I've said before, my mother didn't raise any self-confident children. I took one look at the uber-chic girls who were throwing themselves at him and resigned myself to watching the action from afar.

If you love urban fantasy, Native American lore, and mythic gods then you MUST read Seized! I must admit the cover art is what initially drew me to this book but I was pleasantly surprised by the story, too. Cantwell mixes modern society with myths and legends and cooks up a powerful, intriguing concoction of the two. I wanted to crawl inside and join the characters. I've just started this series and am so grateful there are more books to read!
