Editorial Reviews


"Wow. What an amazing read! Held has taken a completely new and utterly believable look at werewolves and pack-based society and spun an engrossing tale that was so engaging I stayed up until 3am to finish it. She writes with the assurance and subtlety of an old hand while bringing something completely new to Urban Fantasy. I loved the characters and the marvelous twists of the story. Silver is a remarkable debut; I'm blown away."  —Kat Richardson, bestselling author of Greywalker

About the Author

RHIANNON HELD is the author of Silver and its sequel, Tarnished. In her day job, she works as a professional archeologist. “Unfortunately, given that it’s real rather than fictional archeology, fedoras, bullwhips, aliens and dinosaurs are in short supply. Most of my work is done on the computer, using data bases to organize data.” Held lives in the Seattle, Washington, area.

More About the Author

Rhiannon Held was born in Minnesota, but moved to the Pacific Northwest young enough to imprint. When not writing she works at her day job as a professional archaeologist. Unfortunately, given that it's real rather than fictional archaeology, fedoras, bullwhips, aliens, and dinosaurs are in short supply. Most of her work is done on the computer, using databases to organize data, and graphics programs to illustrate it.

Customer Reviews

The writing style is a bit stiff and the plot kind of predictable.
K. Eckert
All in all, I enjoyed this novel very much and would recommend it to any lover of werewolves, urban fantasy, paranormal romance...or anyone who enjoys a good book.
The author took great care to create her world, her characters, and to develop her story.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This was an interesting sort of werewolf book spent a lot of time talking about pack dynamics in the New World while exploring two damaged characters. Our male main character is Andrew Dare who is working as the enforcer for the Roanoke Pack. He had spent some time in Europe but is back home after losing his mate and going on a killing rampage to get those responsible for her death. He came back with a very bad reputation, lots of guilt, and an essential feeling of loneliness. He is in the Roanoke Pack but not really accepted by it. He is an alpha wolf who doesn't want responsibility for anyone but himself.

Andrew is sent to track down a lone wolf and finds Silver. She has been injected with silver, has lost her wolf, has hallucinations and is generally crazy. She sees a black wolf she calls Death who talks in the voices of those who have died. When Andrew finds her, he wants to find out where she belongs and wants to find out who did that to her and stop him before he does it again. Using silver as a weapon of torture is something that had been done in Europe but wasn't common in America. His pack alpha wants to get rid of Silver but has no interest in finding the person responsible. As long as he stays out of his territory, he doesn't care who caused the problem.

Andrew decides to disregard his alpha's instructions and find out what is going on. He wants to help Silver. Together they go off to the West Coast to try to find a pack that knows her.The story is told alternately from Andrew's and Silver's point of view. Getting into the mind of a woman who has been poisoned by silver was a very surreal experience. It was fascinating to see her relationship with Death and it was fascinating to see her come to terms with her horrible memories and come back to reality.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I saw this book through the Amazon Vine program and thought it sounded really interesting. It had the hint of a romance, werewolves and a fantasy feel to it so I thought it would be a book I could enjoy.

When I received Silver, I was not sure if this book fit into the adult or young adult category and could not find out that information online. After reading it though, I would put it in the adult category. As for the genre, it could fit into a couple of them. It has elements of an urban fantasy, a paranormal romance and a fantasy novel, yet I don't think it could be classified as just one of those. It does switch point of views between Silver and Andrew, but the transitions were sometimes rough and did not flow well into the overall story. It also has the werewolves which could be in fantasy or paranormal and there was romance, but it definitely took the back seat like it would with an urban fantasy novel.

As for the characters, I did not feel any connection with them. There was no depth to them or their feelings and they felt like strangers to me. I also did not feel like I had to know any more about them as the story progressed. I wanted more emotions from Silver and Andrew and to know more about their backstory. We get a little of that later in the book, but it is not for a good hundred and fifty pages in and by that point it was too little too late for me.

I actually put this book down a couple of times and almost did not finish it because I was bored. There was not much going on except the hunt to find who tortured Silver and that was not enough to keep my attention. I pushed through because I was hoping it would pick up, but it never did. I had high hopes for this book and it just did not deliver.

Andrew Dare is the enforcer of the Roanoke Pack. Known, and feared, as one of the most dangerous of all Weres, Andrew cleans up mistakes by lone and rogue Weres...cleans them up permanently. When he comes upon Silver, a beautiful Were who has been tortured into insanity, Andrew must protect Silver and find the person or persons who tortured her and decimated her pack before the other packs are threatened.


I've read a lot of Werewolf (and shifter) fiction. In some ways, this is a little typical. Various packs headed by various alphas in competition with each other and untrusting, lone wolves, rogue wolves, etc. Much of it feels very familiar.

However, there are things about this one are a bit unique.

First, there's Silver, the tortured and vulnerable young Were who talks to someone she believes is Death. As you read the book, you find yourself uncertain as to whether or not she's truly insane. At first, I was a bit disappointed because she seemed so vulnerable. I'm used to very strong female characters and felt that her level of vulnerability and damage might make her a less than interesting character. And at first, that's true. Andrew is so powerful, so male, so alpha, that Silver (who should be the most interesting character) pales a bit. However, keep reading. Silver's character becomes incredibly vivid and strong.

The pack dynamics are interesting, though they could be further fleshed out. And, thank you to the author, there are no vampires, zombies, elves, dragons, etc. Just werewolves, done very well.

Unlike many of the Werewolf/Shifter books out there, this isn't a werewolf excuse for thinly hidden erotica - okay, so I may have disappointed some of you.
