Editorial Reviews

Review

"This dystopian novel ... reminds us of the destructive force of mankind, whose injuries are most often self-inflicted. ... There is much contemporary society can learn from Telford's novel, as the old adage of history repeating itself certainly applies. In short, Telford's novel is nothing short of fascinating. Her world is gripping." -- The US Review of Books

Format: Paperback
Set in a brutal apocalyptic world in 2342 where most of Humanity has been wiped out, only a few Humans survived and live in a battered world divided into sections. You have the Sentinel District, the 2nd reclamation district, the Fringe District, the out district and the unknown territories.

The Sentinel District is where the rich people live, they have running water, food, real homes, governed and policed by The Hunter Division.

The Fringe district is where everyone else lives, people that aren't welcome in the sentinel, killers, rapists, criminals, they face a daily battle to survive and face a bleak future.

The 2nd reclamation district is once wiped free of monsters going to be an add on to the overflowing sentinel district.

One problem, the 2nd reclamation district is overrun by Chimera, they are the monsters of this story and they outnumber the humans 21:1. The Chimera were humans once, born in the aftermath of a nuclear war, but after centuries of genetic mutations their humanity has been lost and they are now hunted and killed and are the main food source for the humans.

Enter Silver, a member of the Hunter Division and all round hardass. She is on assignment one day and comes across a human living amongst the chimera, and they haven't touched her, which Silver finds strange because the Chimera are vicious meat eaters and eat humans.

Silver decides that she is going to smuggle this human into the fringe district with the help of a few members of her team, Red, and Alex. Unfortunately she gets caught and thrown into a cell and then banished to the fringe division and this is where the story really begins.

This book is amazing considering that the author is new.

Format: Paperback
Silver: Acheron is one of 'those' books for me - the world-building is top-class, and I'm hard-stretched to think of any recent read that has done it better. Nuclear war is the cause of the apocalypse that has pushed human beings to the brink of extinction. The prologue didn't really work for me, I found it a little choppy and difficult to immerse myself in - but once the story itself started, I was completed hooked.....

When Ella 'Silver' Cross is banished to the Fringe District after saving a naked, seemingly deranged woman from the Chimera, she finds herself expelled from the life she has always known and living alongside the dregs of society. The Fringe District is a place where evil freely flourishes, and Silver: Acheron pulls no punches in describing just how low humanity can stoop when pushed to the knife-edge of survival. Slavery, degradation of women, drug abuse - the Fringe District is a disturbing place, but the descriptions and writing makes you really feel as if you are there.

The series is started perfectly in that although secrets are alluded to, there is so much 'taster' for the rest of the story that it's impossible to not crave more. The writing is edge-of-your-seat thrilling - as Silver finds and begins to befriend the woman she seemingly rescued from the Chimera, Ms. Telford drops tantalising tasters of the revelations that are to come.

I also have to mention the artwork in the book - it's truly chilling and all through the story I had the Chimera pictured in my mind - which made the book come to life even more.

I can't wait to read more of this world, and find out just what those secrets are....

Words have been escaping me for the last week as I try to write a review worthy of this book. It is an incredible start to a series which has me bagged, tagged and shackled up tight. There is not anything I do not like about this book.

I am not in love with all the characters but I have connected to them all. There is a teasing air of sexiness about the whole thing. Who will Silver end up being with after the hurt of Alex goes away... will it ever truly go away? Wait, we have no clue! I guess I will have to keep on reading!

This book is balls to the walls chuck full of wonderful adult subject matter (or extra wang-age as Geoff just put it *rolling eyes*) I am not talking sex scenes, though it was sexy and there were some sexy scenes, but if you are looking for the bare-chested manwhore off the cover of a romance novel, look again. These are broken individuals, struggling to stay alive, and in this society, it is the survival of the fittest with a touch of insanity. Folks who have the stomach to do what it takes to stay alive, to take the risks but not crazy enough to let it consume them.

Over three-hundred years after the apocalypse humanity is on the brink of extinction. Violent and dystopic with only a sliver of hope left at survival. The human population hangs by a thread. Yes human, because a mutant creature has evolved and risen from the ashes called Chimera, a base race of genetically altered creatures. Driven by instinct and hunger, they live in packs with nothing beyond breeding and eating as their driving force, or at least the humans think so. They outnumber humanity 21:1 and have a hunger for flesh. The very intolerant government has a specialized force of hunters, trained specifically to clear the surrounding area of the chimera.
