Author: Emily Sowden
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Publisher: Oftomes Publishing
Release Date: February 7th 2017
Courage comes from a shadowed place in our hearts; a blurred line that straddles love and sheer stupidity.
To seventeen-year-old Ava, wild woodcats, hungry stragglers, and simple-minded townsfolk are the evils she’s grown accustomed to. But when Ethan, an unusual man with eyes of smoke and fire opal, enters her world she quickly understands that there are worse things out there than drunken men and carnivorous forest creatures. She’s a specialised liar and a hell of a fighter, but against a group of animalistic men called Berserkers she struggles to survive the encounter as the desperate swing of a dagger is all it takes to change her life for good.
Half-dead and hunted by the Berserker’s leader when he forms a monstrous obsession with her, Ava escapes his pursuit in an unfamiliar land full of impossible creatures, unlikely allies, and the man she doesn’t know whether to kiss or kill.
But after dreadful news of her missing brother surfaces, Ava becomes more involved in the centuries-long war and begins to unravel the reasons behind her relentless nightmares, discovering truths long-buried in a violent history of love, loss and betrayal.
Of the month of September, Oftomes Publishing held a readalong for Trapped In Silver by Emily Sowden. Since I loved Trapped In Silver the first time I read it, I signed up to be apart of the readalong. I was so excited to reread this book because I love rereading books.
Unfortunately rereading Trapped In Silver was not a good idea.
I honestly don’t know what to think right now. I feel so bad that I didn’t enjoy it this time around.
Just like the last time, I love the writing style. That has not changed! The writing was a big of why I kept reading.
But this time around the pacing felt really slow and I just could not get into this time. It felt like it dragged in. I was still in a reading slump but I don’t think that’s why this happened. I read a different book and I frecking loved it and read it really quickly.
So I think the reason is just that my reading tastes have changed. I’m not the biggest fan of fantasy anymore. If I find one that I end up enjoying, that will be a miracle to be honest.
Last time, I really liked all the characters but for some reason this time I just found them pretty annoying. Ava just seemed to jump into things without thinking.
I know this is the longest review out there but honestly I don’t remember a lot about the book! It pains me to write this review but I know I need to.
