Deacon Chalk is a man who will do anything to protect the family he has made over the past 5 years. He also doesn’t put up with those who abuse others for their own pleasure. Which is how “Blood and Silver” starts out. Deacon and Tiff come across a group of men beating a dog half to death. When he gets closer, he realizes they are all shifters (were-animals) but that makes no difference – evil is evil. He rescues the were-dog and takes her to the bar to get cleaned up and looked at by Larson. Now Deacon is caught up in the middle of a were-war between two factions and two brothers and he’s not sure it will turn out well for anyone involved.

It does seem as if “Blood and Silver” has elements directed towards those who have not read the first Deacon Chalk book, rehashing past events. Mr. Tuck’s genius shows up in the subtlety of the characters and the detailed descriptions he weaves around you. You may think I’m crazy for saying the characters have a subtlety to them, but not all the changes the characters go through in this book come with a whizz-bang explosion. I loved Sophia, the were-dog, and the exploration of some of Deacon’s stranger abilities. Deacon’s still a badass, but he comes off as more human in “Blood and Silver”, which I liked. If you love dark, gritty, and raw urban paranormal fiction, the Deacon Chalk series is definitely for you!
