Just like the other one, this is almost a good fantasy book but . . not quite. It also has a ton of lengthily described ritual sex, which may or may not be a recommendation. A sense of humor would have made these books immensely more bearable, but as it is they're just so incredibly Serious that they're tough to take.

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.
Great book. The characters though a lot are all greatly written and woven to each other. Bring you to different worlds in just one book. Even better then Silver's Edge.
what a great sequel in this trilogy! The first book left me wanting more and Ms. Kelleher surely delivered in this second installment of the Silver's series!

this is a very nice read
Silver's Bane is a detailed, sweeping epic story of a battle - a series of battles really - between the mortal and Faerie realms. Although the style of the book is similar to the Lord of the Rings trilogy, in this book the women play a much more substantial role, and are leaders, warriors and sages equal to, and in several cases more than, the male characters.

The book is exciting and interesting, with lots of detail about the people, places and history of all the characters and their back storie

Silver's Bane is the sequel to Silver's Edge. The book continues to relate the intertwinned stories of Nessa, a blacksmith's daughter, Cecily, a dutchess and putative queen and Delphinea, the Fae lady-in-waiting who is (perhaps) the true Faerie Queen, as they struggle to avert the horrors
that threaten the mortal world and Faerie. This second book is much more cohesive and the threads of the story that the first book set up are quite well interlaced and drawn out to interesting c
Less mediocre end to a mediocre series. Interesting if brainless beach reading.

Everyone ends up happily ever after blah blah blah. Honestly the most compelling fate of all was Alemantine's. It's too bad the author didn't have the guts to actually harm anyone else besides making them end up less pretty (my heart bleeds).

What was up with the last chapter? Wow, it went all.... crazy. I have no problem with the content but that was just out of the blue. Like the author was saying "Hey guys, here was

I'm trying to read through my outrageously huge book stash so that I only have books that I have read and really love. This was a series I picked up when I worked at a bookstore, so I a finally working through them. Nothing I would recommend. It's confusing at times, for which fantasy books tend to be guilty, and I didn't really care about any of the characters.
This is one of those forgettable fantasies that you read in a couple days that you are aware that you did actual read it at one time. For the life of me, other then dealing with the realm of fey, I don't remember a single compelling aspect to it.
On the bright said, I don't remember anything bad about it so it would probably make a good fluff read.

Annie continues to win readers hearts with her original and wondrous use of language and mythology to create a unique and wondrous world. Her characters are interesting and this entry in the series never disappoints.
The sequel to Silver's Edge, I really loved it and how all the stories of the different "worlds" intertwined in the end.
