I loved this epic fantasy. It is magical and the world is positively enchanting. It was so full of intrigue that I couldn't put it down. This is the series that really brought me into the world of fairies and started my obsession with Luna books.

Well here is my awaited review of Silver's Lure by our very own Anne Kelleher of Writers, Witches and Words...Oh My! I was ever so lucky to win an autographed copy of her latest novel in her 13 Essential Things for Winter SuperAwesome Giveaway. Anne awarded me this book due to my many, frequent ever obsessive commenting on her blog. BTW Anne is working on her 13 Essential Things for Spring SuperAwesome Giveaway right now. Go enter and see if you win some of her goodies.

So far so good. I'm trying to find a good fantacy epic to get lost is far too serious right now. Not sure if this is it. Not a whole lot of character depth here. It just drops you into the lead up, no explanation for the 'fantacy' aspects of this..just assumes that you know what's going on. I get frustrated with this. One can only read Tolkien so many times though...:)

***UPDATE*** Apparently the reason I felt kinda lost is that this is the Third book in a series. Only Rarely d

Ow. This book was awful. I picked it up from the library, thinking it was the sequel to Silver's Edge by the same author, but no. It's a prequel. An awful prequel. it makes little to no sense with the world, races, magic system, or the history as previously constructed, which she handwaves with an afterword about "different versions" of the tale. Poorly written, possibly unedited as it was so full of typos, unlikable characters in an impenetrable plot. There weren't even any good romance/sex sc ...more

This book was awful. It was hard to finish. I picked it up because it was by the publisher: Luna. They usually publish good romances, and the summary sounded very fantasy and fun. But 60 pages in, I knew it was not going to get any better. It was confusing, the world was not well constructed, and the writer kept jumping from character to character without fully introducing us to them. For the rest of the novel I kept thumbing through not caring a whit about what I was reading. Course, I may have ...more

I read this a couple of years ago along with the other two silver books by Annie Kelleher. Since I'd gotten to "know" Annie through her blog, I was intrigued. I enjoyed all three books. Even now, I think about the world she built. Memories of the characters, the situations, and the myths bubble up as if they were my own dreams.

I don't usually read fantasy, but I admire internal consistency in a good magic world. This is a good magic world.

It really wasn't everything I hoped it would be. It does explain why druid magic diminished, but it covers very little on who descends from whom. I'm guessing that Cecily descends from Morla, Dougal from either Cwynn or Bran, and we all know who the sidhe and Goblin King descend from.

On another note I hated the grammar errors. It was really distracting to have words like "could've" in the narration.

Even better than the first, the adventure continues in a unique and fascinating world peopled with interesting characters and situations.

Same as the rest of the series, nothing exciting. At least now I can get rid of this series that I've had for 4+ years now!
