Review: Of Silver and Beasts by Trisha Wolfe

Of Silver and Beasts

Of Silver and Beasts (Goddess Wars #1)

In the sand-covered queendom of Cavan, the goddess once saved a young Kaliope’s life, preventing the mercury her father attempted to hide in her blood from reaching her heart. Now, a cybernetic clamp filters it, but the silver streaks swirling faintly beneath her skin are a constant reminder that she’s different.

When nineteen-year-old Kaliope is chosen as head of the Nactue Guard, she becomes the sworn protector to her empress. In the midst of an invasion on a neighboring land, Kaliope is placed in charge of guarding Prince Caben, the last heir to his kingdom. But when they’re attacked by the feared Otherworlders, Caben and Kaliope are abducted and taken below to a realm where they must fight for their life in a caged arena.

Kaliope struggles to protect her princely charge, keeping him and herself alive while battling inhumanly opponents, and trying to save the stolen, sacred relic that will restore her empress’s life force and all of Cavan. And if she can somehow awaken the goddess within her, she may save what’s most important.

New Adult Dark Fantasy: Intended for readers 17 years of age and older

Its no secret that Trisha Wolfe has quickly become one of my favorite authors. Her books are must reads, and get better and better. Of Silver and Beasts is a fantasy steampunk, where women rule and there is a place so dark and evil you have to fight your own to escape.

Trisha Wolfe seems to love to write in first person, and although Im not a big fan of it, she makes it work. It adds an element of mystery and grabs at my attention. Not only that, but she has a habit of making everything turn out differently than what I think it is. Seriously, Im thrown through a loop time and time again, and I am quickly becoming addicted to it!

She has told me that the next book in this series will have Cabin`s POV, so those of you who have already read this one, you should be happy about it -- or not, because I have no doubt shes going to rip our hearts our and stomp on it before giving us a break --- I still heart you, Trisha!!!---

And as I have said before... its addicting. The world might be made up (apart of the imagination that is purely Trisha Wolfe) but the emotions are not, and its fucking AWESOME! Anyone looking for a heartwrenching tale, read one of her books. Her books are not for the weak hearted -- or for children!!

I was thrown out of my comfort zone with her novels, moving from the "safe" zone I had built myself in, and thrown into... man, I cant even explain. And absolutely NO words can describe how much I love this book. Hell, at this point Im rambling!

Again with a Trisha Wolfe book, I give three stars. Astarte is my favorite still, but if your looking for a new, exciting read that is out of this world (litterally), then you should help support this wounderfull author (seriously, I want to see her on the bestseller list!) and  buy this book to read! You wont regret it!!!

PS. I was given an ebook in exchange for an honest review (and believe me, honest I am) for her book tour. Tuff Girl, all the way!
