From the pen of Amy Rose Davis, a self-published (indie) author, comes this wonderful dark fantasy. When I was introduced to Amy by a friend, I bought this book, intending to read it 'sometime'. I am now very glad that I did, and more so now that I have read it.

The story does not take long to read, being a novella, and the vivid imagery makes it a true pleasure. The words create the setting and the characters in such an unobtrusive way that one simply absorbs them as one follows the events depic...more

I can honestly say that Silver Thaw is a really good read. I think it took me a couple of pages to get into it, but then I was hooked. It’s a delicious fantasy, with a great setting and really vivid characters. I was drawn into the story and powered through it in one day, staying up late to get to the end and see how it all resolved.

The story is told in four parts, marking the four seasons of the year, and the progression of the tale, with four different characters taking the ‘lead’ in each part...more

It takes a lot to hook me into a story these days, but this one did it. It's also very rare these days that I can start reading something without at least a small urge to edit. Silver Thaw is an entertaining fantasy, smoothly told, with wonderful world-building and believable, consistent characters and a chilling edge of horror. If I was pressed to make any criticism, and I’m struggling to do so here, it would simply be the POV characters who die. Having gotten so far into their heads and charac...more

This is an amazing story! I don't know what I expected. I've read Davis' Ravenmarked, and I loved it, so I knew I would love this one as well. The two stories, while equal in quality, are completely different.

This story almost has a touch of horror. There are things in it that made me gasp and made me pause to think. Even though this was only a novella, there was a lot packed in and nothing was wasted. This is a book I imagine I will end up reading again from time to time.

A bite-sized fantasy/horror novella about a small mountain town plagued by a wraith whose voice is as deadly as it is enchanting. An enjoyable read with a vivid rural setting, although the structure of the novella (it is told in 4 parts, from different points of view) made it difficult for me to sink fully into the story. Nonetheless for a debut release, the story shows a lot of promise. Worth a look.

I love the writing style of this author! This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. I'm definitely reading more of Amy's books. Just awesome!
