Book Review: Of Silver and Beasts by Trisha Wolfe

Genre: New Adult (Dark Fantasy Romance)
Date Published: April 19th 2013
Publisher: Self

The Blurb:
In the sand-covered queendom of Cavan, the goddess once saved a young Kaliope’s life, preventing the mercury her father attempted to hide in her blood from reaching her heart. Now, a cybernetic clamp filters it, but the silver streaks swirling faintly beneath her skin are a constant reminder that she’s different.

When nineteen-year-old Kaliope is chosen as head of the Nactue Guard, she becomes the sworn protector to her empress. In the midst of an invasion on a neighboring land, Kaliope is placed in charge of guarding Prince Caben, the last heir to his kingdom. But when they’re attacked by the feared Otherworlders, Caben and Kaliope are abducted and taken below to a realm where they must fight for their life in a caged arena.

Kaliope struggles to protect her princely charge, keeping him and herself alive while battling inhumanly opponents, and trying to save the stolen, sacred relic that will restore her empress’s life force and all of Cavan. And if she can somehow awaken the goddess within her, she may save what’s most important.

New Adult Dark Fantasy: Intended for readers 17 years of age and older

My Review:
Of Silver and Beasts is the first Goddess Wars Novel by Trisha Wolfe. This book was a unique reading experience for me in that it got my adrenalin pumping while I read. Between the attacks and the blood games plus the moments of heated romance, I felt like I was Kaliope and not just someone reading a book.  This author is brave and definitely not afraid to kill her characters. The way she weaves a story is truly a gift. Kaliope, the heroine is one tough cookie, and Caben? He has it all and then some more. The thought and detail that went into this book is top notch. There was enough romance to keep me happy, but it wasn't in abundance. I think readers, both male and female, would greatly enjoy this story. Something was always happening, which made it impossible to put down because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. It had me cheering and yelling from the edge of my seat. And that ending? It left me speechless. Of Silver and Beasts was dark, brutal, bloody, and pulled me right into its addictively twisted world without hope of escape. I need to get my hands on the next book! This is a must read!
