[REVIEW] Silver – Rhiannon Held

Andrew Dare is the enforcer of the Roanoke pack. When he finds a lone, damaged werewolf, the two begin the search for Silver’s attacker.

Rhiannon Held has crafted a quiet, elegant, and refined novel that mostly avoids the annoying “mine’s bigger than yours” alpha-douchebag dramas that plague paranormal fiction. Andrew is quite likable, as is Silver, and romance fans will be pleased with the happy ending. Urban fantasy fans will appreciate the back-to-basics story. But really, the characters need to stop talking trash about Europeans – don’t generalise a whole continent based on one bad egg.
