summary Silver's Edge Reader's Choice

Through the Shadowlands where the touch of silver was protections power and perilUnwillingly entwined There is danger than usual in the Otherworld of the Sidhe and the mortal world of the Shadowlands An unlikely group of conspirators both mortal and Sidhe plot to overthrow both thrones They'd stolen the. It took me a ridiculously long time to read not because it was bad but because it s a long book and I simply just didn t have the time or energy to dedicate to it Here we are nearly two years later and I ve done the thingAnne Kelleher s writing is an acuired taste Her prose is descriptive and archaic but not in a bad way She writes her books like she s lore master recounting an ancient tale Her characters are surprisingly fleshed out despite the number of perspectives throughout She never info dumps but rather mentions little things here and there that all weave together to form a complete story and history If you like Celtic inspired high fantasy that takes its time I recommend this duology and the preuel before them Be warned though there are many casual references to sex and gory violence so if you re sensitive to that sort of thing you might want to find another book to read

A and Cecily are each driven by a personal destiny yet share a fierce sense of love justice and determination to protect what is theirs Will the spirit and strength of these women be enough to turn back the tide of the goblin hordes waiting to overrun the kingdomsPerhaps But the battle must still be foug. This is a very dark book It starts slow lot of leisurely narrative The premisebasis of the whole story is finally stated at the bottom of page 86 What if what if it s the Silver Caul that s poisononing the land If it s the Caul that s weakening Sidhe ueen AlemandineThe Silver Caul was created by a Sidhe ueen s magic and a human blacksmith s craft to erect and hold a barrier to keep the mortal Shadowlands the Sidhe lands and the goblin lands separate No one could travel between them But the barrier weakens soon to fail altogether A goblin is found floating dead in a human lake A human blacksmith goes missing into the goblin lands A human girl wanders into Sidhe territory with the goblin head trying to warn them of the danger and ask for help to find her missing father Only to find the self centered Sidhe wrapped up in Court intrigues than worries about their role in the greater scheme of thingsThis was a good read with solid world building and very real well rounded characters both good and bad It s long and sometimes takes a less direct approach when I as a reader just wanted to get to the point already I could definitely sypathize with Nessa s plight the Sidhe drove me nuts too Didn t much care for the vapid ueen But the Sidhe maiden Delphinea was wonderful The only one with sense

Silver caul that protected the borders between the realms and set into motion a most perilous warA blacksmith's daughter a Sidhe lady a mortal ueenThree women stand against the encroaching evil All they have is a girl's love for her father a lady's for her ueen and a ueen's for her country Nessa Delphine. 35 out of 5 starsInitial Thoughts Pretty decent start I will admit that I m not loving all the characters but the way the three different plotlines overlapped kept me hooked One POV will slowly approach a climax moment and then the story will switch to a different POV Definitely worth a try Full ReviewIn the world of Shadowland there is an uneasy peace between the human realm and the Otherworld For the last couple generations the two worlds have coexisted in peace after the last devastating war after the Sidhe and the humans came together to build the Silver Caul Now the Sidhe ueen is getting ready to birth her first child and heir and her power that strengthens the caul and barriers around the worlds will be at its weakest point It s the perfect moment that the Goblin King has been waiting for The moment draws closer as the ueen s due date approaches the barriers weaken and the goblins prepare for an attackI have not read a fairy book in so long I didn t know what to exactly expect when coming into this book The book follows three different perspectives but multiple plot lines that just weave together at the end to create this grand finale The alternation between the plots helped to keep the story moving and build the anticipation throughout the book There were so many moments when I wanted to groan in frustration because one plotline was just nearing an important moment when it suddenly switched to the another plotline The horde of goblins which represent the enemy in the story was not really presented as a very clear threat While they were scary and ominous I couldn t exactly feel the fear that everyone else in the story was feeling However I did like how the story started and ended with in the Goblin King s perspective it helped to set the mood in the beginning and create a pretty suspenseful endingLike I mentioned before this story follows three specific female protagonists who all have incredible strong ties to loyalty There s Nessa who is headstrong and loyal to her father She s willing to do anything to save him after he disappears and a dead goblin shows up in the village river It s hinted throughout the book that she s gifted and will play a huge role in the next book but she doesn t really do much other than passing some news and making some weaponry But nonetheless I m excited to see what she will bring the story Another protagonist is Delphinea a Sidhe lady who arrives at the Faerie Court bringing bad news She s probably the most interesting one out of the there and actually started off as really naive but her loyalty again stays strong as she navigates her way through the corrupted court I wish we got of her side of the story of the Sidhe side of the story in general because it was probably my favorite to read Lastly we have Cecily a mortal ueen who sadly is probably my least favorite character I can t exactly place why but I just could not get myself to like her Sure I sympathized with her plight but out of all the protagonists she came off the weakest She s still true in heart and intention but she is portrayed as a very lady like character which when compared to the others just didn t work for meOn top of the goblin threat there s also the human enemy Cecily and her husband are fighting a rebellion against the Fool King and his foreign wife The king is a bit slow in mind and his wife and her people are slowly taking over the government I actually liked King Hoell he was really innocent and childish but still a good person His wife ueen Merle seemed to be the one running everything and I feel like the rebellion against her is completely useless I loved the little peeks we got at her culture and her predictions of the future through the cards and the little sections we got from their perspectives made them seem like good people The rebellion should just unite with the king and ueen to fight the real enemy instead of each otherThe entire plot is full of court intrigue especially on the Sidhe part which is incredibly interesting There were characters whom I thought I wouldn t like and then completely changed my mind when true intentions are revealed There s also a subtle very very subtle romance that doesn t overrun the story s true course which I did enjoy Little spoiler but does anyone sense something going between Artmiour and Nessa because I ship it Overall this is really interesting story with an intriguing plot that weaves in and out and keeps you engaged throughout the story Definitely check it out if you re looking for something a little different in terms of faery books because it s a bit bloodier than I expected for sure Read my reviews at

    Despite being worn out by the many long descriptions some of them admittedly rich and lush and very annoyed at the constant sexualisation of every single character I found the plot itself drew me in and grew on me Not a stand alone novel by any means alas like many first in a fantasy series it ends with no resol

    The storyline is intricately woven together in a deep and winding story I like that it focuses on female character POV's although bits of the story are unusual and uite memorable I prefer stories that aren't harleuin esue I can use my own imagination for rated X encounters thank you very much and this one tended to dip into those sc
