Three and a half from me
I've enjoyed this authors work in the past and have very good memories of both her Shadowlands and also the Court of Annwyn series so seeing this latest foray into the paranormal world meant I was extremely keen to download it. It turned out to be a lot shorter than I expected but perhaps the author is keen to write stories that her readers can devour in just one or two sittings?
Essentially this book introduces two sisters who are both much more than they seem. The eldes

This book was a bit of a puzzle as far as reviewing it since it was dark, fast moving and a decent plot but the hero spent an inordinate amount of time being a jerk.

This is not a long book at under 200 pages it really falls into the novella category but all things considered I did enjoy it and read it in one sitting without a break.

Dale and Saba eventually made a good couple but the vast majority of the "romance" was him being a jerk and her waiting to see if he would come around or become a mem

Novella length intro to the series Blood and Silver.

Hmm, ok, somehow the story promised to be much more than it actually turned out to be in the end.
But first off, let's start with the good things about it.
The idea of the Albah, a cross between witch and elf, and how a vampire comes to be is quite original. I like how the Albah magic works, especially the connections that can be accomplished via blood magic. Even more intrigued I was by Saba being unintentionally connected to the killer vampire. That could have made a very gripping story indeed.

I’ve enjoyed pretty much this author has published in the US so far so I jumped at the chance to read this new series. It was a short but engaging read that I’m sure I’d have finished reading in one sitting if it hadn’t been because life got in the way.

As a detective investigating a savage murder, Dale has no other choice at the moment but to seek assistance of “psychic” Saba Venn. The only problem was he thought her to be a huge charlatan that took advantage of people that did believe in that

Detective Dale Morgan is really up against it. He’s got a murdered young woman found on the city’s outskirts with her blood drained. He honestly believes she was murdered by a fanatic in town that is the leader of cult of vampire wannabe’s. Only the killer is extremely efficient and leaves absolutely no clues at all. Now Dale has his reasons for not believing in psychics and the woo-woo types of folks who peddle and con the public but he also knows that he has to try to find some/ any leads he c ...more

Saba runs a magic shop but also uses her gift as a psychic which brings her to the attention of the local P D. Saba has helped the P D before and now a young woman had been found murdered with her blood drained and the P D. turns to Saba for answers. A co-worker recommended Saba to Dale. Dale is a detective and reluctantly goes to Saba who he believes is a fake. Saba is an Albah which is a race long forgotten by humans but were still around. Saba’s power is fueled by blood and silver. Saba can u ...more

A very quick but not totally engrossing read.

What I liked: There’s a lot to like about Lady of Silver but what I found the most intriguing was the different spin on vampires and maybe witches with a bit of the Fae thrown in. I’m not going to rehash the synopsis as it contains a good overview of the story.

The characters didn’t immediately grab me. The lead detective, Dale Morgan seemed a bit of a jerk sometimes and I didn’t really feel the attraction between him and the heroine, Saba Venn, which

Lady of Silver, Shona Husk

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre:  romance, paranormal and fantasy

I’d enjoyed a couple of Shona's stories and liked the sound of this, a hopefully new series.
It turned out to be a great read, a perfect balance of romance and fantasy. The main characters were interesting and felt very real and that’s always important for me. If they and the plots don’t feel as if they could happen (in the event magic etc is real..or maybe it is??) then I just don’t enjoy a st

I received a copy of Blood and Silver from the author in exchange for an honesty review. This in no way influenced my review and rating.

It has been almost two weeks since I finished Blood and Silver, and I am still struggling how to write this review. So I apologize in advance if this is a bit disjointed.

Dale is a cop with a dead body that has been drained of blood. He is also VERY anti magic/fortune tellers/psychics. Struggling with his immense dislike, he calls in Saba Venn (because of a cowor

It was a fast read. Short book and easy to read in a sit through.
Plot and characters need more depth, but both show promise.

If you like to read about mythical beings or just wanting for the next shifter book. Thank Lady of Silver, can be that book. Saba Venin when you looked at her you though she was an average dwarf. However, Saba was an Albah a race thought extinct. But as Dale Morgan found out that was not so. While hunting down a serial killer Dale decided to go to the one person he thought he would never visit…a psychic.

But, Dale soon came to realize that not everything is black or white. And soon, Dale and Sab

[I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review]

There were several good things about this book, but also several things that bothered me. First, I liked the setting and the history portrayed in the book. The main female character, Saba, is a member of the race of Albah. The Albah have magic powers of various sorts (it varies from person to person). There is also an ancient race called the Albanex, who are essentially vampires. (I'm not going into more detail to avoid sp

*I have received an ARC of this book from the author, in exchange for an honest review*.

Shona Husk knows how to spin a good paranormal story, full of interesting ideas and mythology, which is a refreshing change from the cookie-cutter approach to a lot of urban fantasy / paranormal romance these days (the good vampire, the girl falling for the overly used paranormal character, etc.). In turn, I was really looking forward to reading this book. I wanted to love it.

This isn't a bad book. It's a li

A fresh, astounding, rich take on not only vampires and magic, but on Urban Fantasy and romance.
With a serial killer running up a kill count, those kills looking like a vampire cult gone mad, Dale Morgan has no choice but to do the one thing he hates to do, turn to a psychic for help. His fellow police office had used it in the past, so his super
