Of Silver and Shadow book review

Lovers and fans of Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard and The Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi will live for this.

This was absolutely, excruciatingly divine!

Go on this journey with Ren and find out for yourself how deadly power can be. With so many political strategies and plot twists, I am literally on the edge of my seat for this sequel!

Feeding my rebellious heart – overthrowing monarchies!

The writing is easy to follow, and much easier to get swept up in. The world-building is clear and concise and easy to navigate, and boy, what a world it is! I absolutely would love to see the coming fan art for this story, because trust me, it’s going to be epic.

The Hate to Love Romance had me swooning over pages of chemistry build up. Move aside Jude and Cardan (Cruel Prince) there is a new rebel couple in town. And I am definitely on board.

I found the characters believable and each one at least a little relatable, adding so much depth to this story. Overall character development is great, especially considering that this is a series. I am excited to see where this is going.

I am on the edge of my seat for the rest of this story!

Action packed from page one, this story has adventure, magic, romance and friendship. Dash of mystery and a lot of betrayal. The best recipe for a binge worthy read.

Ren Kolins is a silver wielder—a dangerous thing to be in the kingdom of Erdis, where magic has been outlawed for a century. Ren is just trying to survive, sticking to a life of petty thievery, card games, and pit fighting to get by. But when a wealthy rebel leader discovers her secret, he offers her a fortune to join his revolution. The caveat: she won’t see a single coin until they overthrow the King.

Behind the castle walls, a brutal group of warriors known as the King’s Children is engaged in a competition: the first to find the rebel leader will be made King’s Fang, the right hand of the King of Erdis. And Adley Farre is hunting down the rebels one by one, torturing her way to Ren and the rebel leader, and the coveted King’s Fang title.

But time is running out for all of them, including the youngest Prince of Erdis, who finds himself pulled into the rebellion. Political tensions have reached a boiling point, and Ren and the rebels must take the throne before war breaks out.
