I loved Silver’s Edge. It’s an eyes-glued-to-the-page story of politics and war between three realms in a world not unlike Dark Ages Britain or Ireland. The silver caul that once held the Sidhe, the goblins, and the humans in their own little worlds is missing; now the three races are thrown back together for reasons unknown, and chaos ensues.
The story focuses around several young women struggling to survive in this chaotic situation. I loved it — it’s rare that a book about political intrigue really does surprise me and pull the rug out from under my feet. You don’t know who to trust. A character can be presented as very sympathetic and then turn out to be otherwise — and vice versa. Few authors can really fool the reader like that. Anne Kelleher can.
I just wish I’d known this was a series! Yeah, I know everything has to be a trilogy these days, but I didn’t know Silver’s Edge wasn’t a standalone! I stayed up late into the night to finish this, only to be greeted with those three fateful words: “To Be Continued”! I want the second book NOW!
