In-depth review of Silver by Rhiannon Held

Andrew Dare is a werewolf. He’s the enforcer for the Roanoke pack, and responsible for capturing or killing any Were intruders in Roanoke’s territory. But the lone Were he’s tracking doesn’t smell or act like anyone he’s ever encountered. And when he catches her, it doesn’t get any better. She’s beautiful, she’s crazy, and someone has tortured her by injecting silver into her veins. She says her name is Silver, and that she’s lost her wild self and can’t shift any more.

The packs in North America have a live-and-let-live attitude, and try not to overlap with each other. But Silver represents a terrible threat to every Were on the continent.

Andrew and Silver will join forces to track down this menace while discovering their own power and their passion for each other.

This is the second book this year that I have felt very strongly about. I flew through it really quickly because I couldn’t put it down. The pacing was just right, character traits I was worried about at first were quickly addressed, and the story was genuinely interesting to me.

“You don’t need this warrior. If you come with me, the monster won’t be able to find you,” Death said in the voice of her brother’s mate. Always sensible. Sensible advice.

Then There was Thursday (#3)

Other than reading this week I’ve been playing around with some spare cotton. I recently learned how to knit a mitered corner and started learning to crochet So I’ve made a dish cloth with a pretty edge. It’s far from great and I haven’t blocked it yet, but it’s the general idea of what I want to play with. And hey, even if they look funny I can still wash dishes with them!

I also had the opportunity to try David’s Tea’s Lime Gelato as a latte with a bit of honey. Wow. It is fabulous. I had to get a tin full of it and the smell teases me every time I’m near it. I know it’ll be my favorite tea this month. The green is a coincidence. Really. If you do get a chance to try it, I recommend it as a hot latte since that’s what I tried. If it’s warm enough where you are, please let me know what it tastes like as a cold latte. Hopefully I’ll be picking one up this weekend and we gush about wonderful it is together.

Monday Missions (#3)

Hello March! So yesterday was my birthday. I’m now the ripe old age of 22. I know, I’m just starting my life, but let me bask in how old I feel for a bit. I’m not much of a birthday celebrator. More because I’m not really sure what to do than anything else. I try to just take a day off and have a guilt free mini staycation of some nature. Not much in the way of gifts usually happens. This year I did get a cook book, which is the extent of my birthday book acquisitions. Which I’m pleased about. I have so many I still haven’t read ready to jump from their boxes at me. /end mini interlude on my usual Monday Missions.

So last week I finally made it through The Emancipation of B (you can read the short review here). My reading motivation wasn’t as high as I had hoped. However, today alone I’ve powered through 90 pages of Silver by Rhiannon Held and had to put the next two in the series on hold at the library. It’s not even noon. So I have high hopes this week. Not only has Silver been great so far, my focus has been good.
