SHE IS NOT A HERO
Or so she thought. Wren had grown up with another voice in her head but had never considered herself magical. She doesn't have the talents other people have. She certainly doesn't have the abilities anyone else has. But she is charming and manages her business quite well. She deals in emotions and makes people happy. It's a simple life, but it's hers.
HE THINKS SHE COULD BE
Burke was a bodyguard first and always. He had been sent to collect her and deliver her in person to the most powerful creatures in their world. But the moment he steps through the broken door of her shop, his world changes forever. She's strange. She's uncomfortable. And she's so damned beautiful. He is convinced she is part of a prophecy that can save their world.
But how to convince her?
I have trouble with the classification of this book. It’s listed on Amazon as a paranormal romance, but honestly, the romance isn’t the star of this story. What really shines here is the world building. This is an urban fantasy if I’ve ever seen one (and trust me, folks, I’m seen my fair share).
Silver Blood features a world unlike any I’ve encountered in paranormal romance AND urban fantasy land, which is a huge accomplishment that the author should be super proud of.
The pace of the story was nice and even, the dialogue smooth, characters interesting. The story had tons of positives going for it, and I can see fans of the world building in the Kate Daniels novels really loving this one.
But, you know me, folks. You had to know that I’d have a few gripes, right? Well, you guys know me so well. Here are my issues:
But, minor gripes notwithstanding, this one is definitely worth a read. The world building alone makes it a welcome addition to urban fantasy land.
Full disclosure: the author generously offered a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review, but I didn’t take it. I downloaded via Kindle Unlimited.
