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 stories. There is intrigue, treachery, love (moderately graphically described), battle (again, moderately violent descriptions) and the fascinating interactions among all the characters.

If you like Fantasy or Science Fiction you would very likely enjoy this book. One caveat - there is a very large cast of characters, and the chapters flip among their stories throughout so you really need to review the list of the characters given at the beginning of the book so you can keep track of who's who, and what so-and-so's storyline is as the plot moves around.

The book is well written, and the characters are interesting and relatable so you can really become captivated by following along to find out how everyone will ultimately end up.

The plot is exciting detailed and cleverly interconnected with smooth shifts that make sense, even though the shifts are frequent, as one storyline gives way to another through the book. A fast, enjoyable read if you are interested in the doings of Faerie
