Silver by Rhiannon Held is the debut paranormal novel by Rhiannon Held. This isn't a romance, though it is a love story. This isn't urban fantasy though it's a gritty depiction of werewolf life. The language is both sparse and lush, the ideas both lofty and grounded. There are universal truths in this book, presented in a lyrical story of light, death, madness, and redemption. Andrew Dare is enforcer for the Roanoke pack, which encompasses most of the eastern part of the US. Dare has a dark and ugly past and many other packs and their alphas tread lightly around him. Sent to investigate a lone wolf, he finds Silver, a werewolf trapped in human form after being tortured by silver. Silver isn't her real name but she knows no other. The walk through Silver's world, as seem through her eyes is a powerful one. Dare's journey of self-discovery is just as meaningful. This is a book that stays with a reader, creeping into memory and dreams, much like Death slinking through Silver's reality. And hey, the heroine has a really cool name! ;-) I don't think that I would recommend this book strictly to UF/paranormal readers but at the same time, readers who hate the genre might not look beyond the "skin" to see the soul underneath. All I can say is, give it a try. See for yourself.
