The Cover

I am not sure which cover you would prefer, but I kind of like the one from Netgalley over the red one from Amazon. Even though Valentin on the cover is not the I had envisioned, the red one just has not much attraction to it.

The Story

The title is related to the story, however I do find it a little weird. Weird enough to attract curious attention, it was the synopsis that did me in. I was sold by the summary of the book in Netgalley, plus it was easier to request from an Australian publisher usually. The author minces no words, preferring a funny courtship as an opening, then BAM! shit happens.

Valentin, the alpha of the StoneWater Bear clan, wastes no time in dissecting clues and saving the day. A lot is at stake when his intended mate: Silver Mercant was attacked. Silver is no ordinary person, she is a unique born psychic who could hear people’s thoughts. She lives by a code of Silence: emotionless world to keep her gift from killing her too young. However there is much to the story than her code.

This is a series after all, it would be boring without a lot of problems to start in the first book for the readers to follow through right? Silver Silence is the beginning of a challenging and exciting series for me. There is an uneasy truce between the humans, Changelings (Valentin) and Psy (Silver). Something is going in the psy world, a lot of hints while attacks are happening around the world

Sounds familiar?

It should be, it is happening upon the real world now.

Characters

My favorite would be Valentin, Alpha of the StoneWater Bear clan. He is one of the three predatory Changeling alphas, the other being Selena of the Wolf pack (BlackEdge) and the Leopard Clan’s Lucas. As the leader of the Bears, he has a lot of bear traits like fearless, funny and playful.

Silver is harder to like due to her Silence, not that she is not likable. Despite being an adult, Silver was more fun later on as she unwittingly gets involved with Valentin. You could say that he wore her down, with disastrous results.

Verdict

Silver Silence has it all: Romance, mystery and a lot of funny banter Click To Tweet

Silver Silence has what I love: funny banter, a mystery and a unique plot despite a well worn story line. Somehow we can relate with the struggles. The theme for the book is Family, and it is heavily featured in the book. I find that it is an easy/ hard read; easy because words just flow by, hard because of the difficult things they have to face.

I do like it, it spells a wonderful start to a series that will be going strong. If you are a fan of people saving each other instead of always guy saving girl, then this one is definitely for you.
