Review: Silver Borne

Reviewed by Jen

Remember that book that Mercy got back in Iron Kissed that helped her learn about fae items?  It was supposed to be on loan, but Mercy hasn’t given it back yet. And now, the man who lent it to her is missing.  And the fae are after her again.  The set-up makes it sound like this is another book focused on the fae, but where it really counts, this book is about the wolves.

Mercy has agreed to be Adam’s mate –and she is now a member of his pack.  But there are many pack members who are not on board with that.  She becomes a target for people she thought were her friends.  Not only does it threaten her relationship with Adam, it endangers both their lives.

At the same time, Samuel is at the end of his rope.  He is tiring of life and sees no reason to go on.  We’ve seen this coming for a while, but that doesn’t make it any easier when the time comes.  I love the way his wolf continues to fight for life even when the man has given up. I love that Mercy holds on to him with both hands and even enlists Adam to her cause.  What I don’t love, was how this part of the story was resolved.  I understand why the author chose the path she did, but it felt too easy.  And nothing about this series has ever been easy.  Samuel has struggled and struggled and sudden the solution just appears? It bugged me.

I did enjoy the arc of the fae storyline –and it was great seeing Mercy and Adam finally getting to explore their love for each other.  I think my favorite part of the book was when Mercy was able to see the bonds in her life for what they are.  I can’t wait to see how the author keeps it interesting in future installments. Sometimes happy = boring.  But so far, our adventures with Mercy have been anything but that.  4 1/2 stars.

  1. Ah I was relieved for Samuel with his solution. I like him so much that this development made me excited.True that it was late in the day, and is so far underdeveloped but I’ve high hopes for more to come in this side story. Don’t tell me if I’m wrong.
