    Three and a half from meI ve enjoyed this authors work in the past and have very good memories of both her Shadowlands and also the Court of Annwyn series so seeing this latest foray into the paranormal world meant I was extremely keen to download it It turned out to be a lot shorter than I expected but perhaps the author is keen to write stories that her readers can devour in just one or two sittings Essentially this book introduces two sisters who are both muchthan they seem The eldes Three and a half from meI ve enjoyed this authors work in the past and have very good memories of both her Shadowlands and also the Court of Annwyn series so seeing this latest foray into the paranormal world meant I was extremely keen to download it It turned out to be a lot shorter than I expected but perhaps the author is keen to write stories that her readers can devour in just one or two sittings Essentially this book introduces two sisters who are both muchthan they seem The eldest sister Saba is our heroine and runs a magic shop but also utilises her gifts as a psychic which brings her under the radar of the local police department Saba has been incredibly useful before and now when a young woman is found murdered it s to Saba that they turn for answers.Dale is the detective who very reluctantly approaches Saba In his book she s a charlatan , a total fake preying on those who are lost and yet he can t help but admit that something very odd is going on with Saba Nevertheless the case is getting weirder by the minute and the couple are drawn into something that takes everything Dale believes in and rewrites his world I ve deliberately said very little about what actually happens here as it would be far too easy to reveal the plot I can say if you ve read this authors work before you will know she enjoys exploring the world of the Fae and other creatures so this unusual storyline involving a vampire cult gives a whole new twist to vampire lore.The lead characters surprised me at times Dale isn t exactly jaded but he is a very closed off character that isn t always easy to like unfortunately Saba switches from gutsy to meek so quickly I m gobsmacked that she doesn t get whiplash Now the secondary characters are really interesting with someone with unusual ears no spoilers remember and his family clearly being set up to feature in the next book which I ve a sneaking suspicion could have Sabas sister Leira as lead protagonist.So bottom line is I didn t quite expect the way this played out but that s perhaps good as a quick unpredictable read sometimes just fits the bill This book sets up a world in which vampires are completely original and I liked that Unfortunately the romance didn t work for me and as I m primarily a romance reader not a suspense one I am a little disappointed in how the relationship played out Yet I would happily read the next book so surely that says something for the quality of this authors work This voluntary review of an advance reader copy from Netgalley is my honest opinion

    This book was a bit of a puzzle as far as reviewing it since it was dark, fast moving and a decent plot but the hero spent an inordinate amount of time being a jerk.This is not a long book at under 200 pages it really falls into the novella category but all things considered I did enjoy it and read it in one sitting without a break.Dale and Saba eventually made a good couple but the vast majority of the romance was him being a jerk and her waiting to see if he would come around or become a mem This book was a bit of a puzzle as far as reviewing it since it was dark, fast moving and a decent plot but the hero spent an inordinate amount of time being a jerk.This is not a long book at under 200 pages it really falls into the novella category but all things considered I did enjoy it and read it in one sitting without a break.Dale and Saba eventually made a good couple but the vast majority of the romance was him being a jerk and her waiting to see if he would come around or become a memory.Bottom Line This was a novella length story that has a good vampire murder thriller plot, it is also the first of a series of books books in the series is unknown at this writing but sometimes you really want a good fast moving story that you can start and finish within a short time and this is perfect for those times, it is addicting and doesn t spend pages on the color of grass or multiple highly descriptive page burning sex If Dale had not been such a jerk for so much I might have given this 5 Stars Recommended for those times you don t feel like starting a doorstop length novel, this is a great fast story you will like in the end

    Hmm, ok, somehow the story promised to be muchthan it actually turned out to be in the end.But first off, let s start with the good things about it.The idea of the Albah, a cross between witch and elf, and how a vampire comes to be is quite original I like how the Albah magic works, especially the connections that can be accomplished via blood magic Evenintrigued I was by Saba being unintentionally connected to the killer vampire That could have made a very gripping story indeed Hmm, ok, somehow the story promised to be muchthan it actually turned out to be in the end.But first off, let s start with the good things about it.The idea of the Albah, a cross between witch and elf, and how a vampire comes to be is quite original I like how the Albah magic works, especially the connections that can be accomplished via blood magic Evenintrigued I was by Saba being unintentionally connected to the killer vampire That could have made a very gripping story indeed Sadly, it didn t.I felt like I was pulled through the plot too fast There was no time to get deeper into the things that happened, let alone to get to know the characters properly Oftentimes their actions were a mystery to me, their behaviour contradictory Dale is the most prominent example for that He can t seem to decide if he can handle Saba plus her magic And suddenly he can, right after he s done his heroic deed which in itself was a very short episode that left me unsatisfied because of it I mean, this is the end of it all There are still so many questions unanswered, important ones like who made the vampire and why.Usually I like stories that come to the point quickly But I like to explore, too, get deep into a world solely created by words It s a pity that I wasn t able to do that here because the potential for that is definitely there So I won t read the following books of this series Perhaps there are people who enjoy this kind of shallow reading but I don t, sorry

    I ve enjoyed pretty much this author has published in the US so far so I jumped at the chance to read this new series It was a short but engaging read that I m sure I d have finished reading in one sitting if it hadn t been because life got in the way As a detective investigating a savage murder, Dale has no other choice at the moment but to seek assistance of psychic Saba Venn The only problem was he thought her to be a huge charlatan that took advantage of people that did believe in that I ve enjoyed pretty much this author has published in the US so far so I jumped at the chance to read this new series It was a short but engaging read that I m sure I d have finished reading in one sitting if it hadn t been because life got in the way As a detective investigating a savage murder, Dale has no other choice at the moment but to seek assistance of psychic Saba Venn The only problem was he thought her to be a huge charlatan that took advantage of people that did believe in that sort of things As an Albah, Saba knewthan she let on but she couldn t tell Dale much because for one she had secrets to protect, and two because there wasn t much he was willing to believe I liked the world setting and creatures depicted in the story For such a short reading all characters were well developed and so was the plot I was pleasantly surprised when I found out who the villain was and that the hero was not the typical Alpha, overbearing type of guy I thought it was a nice change from other, longer stories.I also thought the author made a great job creating a believable story between detective and civilian, even as the relationship changed gears toromantic Their attraction was there from the beginning but it was not insta lust and even though it was a short read I never got the feeling that the romance was rushed Even though Dale s hesitancy and inflexible attitude put a restraint on the romance it actually gave it a sort of angst y feeling But don t worry, there is a definitely a HEA and there will beto come since this is just the introduction to the series I received this book from the author at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher

    Detective Dale Morgan is really up against it He s got a murdered young woman found on the city s outskirts with her blood drained He honestly believes she was murdered by a fanatic in town that is the leader of cult of vampire wannabe s Only the killer is extremely efficient and leaves absolutely no clues at all Now Dale has his reasons for not believing in psychics and the woo woo types of folks who peddle and con the public but he also knows that he has to try to find some any leads he c Detective Dale Morgan is really up against it He s got a murdered young woman found on the city s outskirts with her blood drained He honestly believes she was murdered by a fanatic in town that is the leader of cult of vampire wannabe s Only the killer is extremely efficient and leaves absolutely no clues at all Now Dale has his reasons for not believing in psychics and the woo woo types of folks who peddle and con the public but he also knows that he has to try to find some any leads he can by going to interrogate one of the psychics that has given the police assistance in the past.To humans, Saba Venn is a psychic, but she s Albah, a race long forgotten by humans but who live amongst them, her powers fueled by blood and silver She agrees to help Detective Morgan, if it means stopping the vampire cult she believes is behind the killing But the attraction she feels with Dale is immediate, and as their relationship intensifies she begins to doubt she can keep the secret of who and what she is from him Very interesting take on another type of Vampire world of humans and other worldly beings Saba is very unique quite beautiful and naturally Detective Morgan in spite of his skepticism of thinking psychics are merely con artists, he can t deny the feelings Saba has brought forth He realizes his mistake soon after she proves to him she could glean facts from just a small sample of the victims blood Unfortunately, in realizing Saba was the real deal, Dale had broken a small protective barrier she had and now the killer knew who she was and would be able to find her This was an overall short and fast read that can be read in one sitting I find that when the writing is succinct with a lots of action the pages fly by, especially when each chapter kind of leaves you at the edge of a cliff and you just MUST see what happens next The world building was interesting, and the story held enough interest to keep you reading it straight through Marilyn Rondeau

    A very quick but not totally engrossing read What I liked There s a lot to like about Lady of Silver but what I found the most intriguing was the different spin on vampires and maybe witches with a bit of the Fae thrown in I m not going to rehash the synopsis as it contains a good overview of the story The characters didn t immediately grab me The lead detective, Dale Morgan seemed a bit of a jerk sometimes and I didn t really feel the attraction between him and the heroine, Saba Venn, whic A very quick but not totally engrossing read What I liked There s a lot to like about Lady of Silver but what I found the most intriguing was the different spin on vampires and maybe witches with a bit of the Fae thrown in I m not going to rehash the synopsis as it contains a good overview of the story The characters didn t immediately grab me The lead detective, Dale Morgan seemed a bit of a jerk sometimes and I didn t really feel the attraction between him and the heroine, Saba Venn, which is such a cool name I felt she was almost too easy on him when Dale was being a jerk She came across almost weak Then there are other instances where she is very strong as a person and in her beliefs So, I was a bit puzzled with the interplay between them I really enjoyed some of the secondary charactersand there were enough hints throughout Lady of Silver about what could happen next, I found myself looking forward to those storiesthan the one I was reading Maybe Lady of Silver wasof a prequel as it isn t that long but just be prepared to want to smack Detective Dale Morgan.What originally attracted me to this book on NetGalley was the cover I think it is stunning What I didn t like As I said the premise was so completely different it was great but I just couldn t connect with the lead characters in this first of the Blood and Silver series I found myself beingannoyed with them than involved in whatever they were doing Now all that being said, I am curious enough to try the next book Ms Husk is a creative author with this series and I want to see where it goes with the next book, Warrior of Fire, expected in June 2017 Additionally, I think the pricing is outstanding It s 1.99 in Kindle and Nook book formats While not making a firm recommendation, I will say, if you want to try something completely different than other vampire s tales, Lady of Silver is certainly unique
