Editorial Reviews

Review

“Huff delves into an overwhelming yet improbably seamless miss of steampunk, epic fantasy, and paranormal romance.... Huff fans who prefer her second-world fantasy tales (e.g., the Quarters series) will be pleased by this return to the form.”
(Publishers Weekly (for The Silvered))

"This is an exciting romantic quest fantasy.... Fans will enjoy the trek of the werewolf and the mage into the heart of the enemy."
(Midwest Book Review (for The Silvered))

About the Author

Tanya Huff may have left Nova Scotia at three, and has lived most of her life since in Ontario, but she still considers herself a Maritimer. On the way to the idyllic rural existence she shares with her partner Fiona Patton, six cats, and a chihuahua, she acquired a degree in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson Polytechnic—an education she was happy to finally use while writing her recent Smoke novels. Of her previous twenty-three books, the five—Blood Price, Blood Trail, Blood Lines, Blood Pact, Blood Debt—featuring Henry Fitzroy, bastard son of Henry VIII, romance writer, and vampire are among the most popular. Tanya can be contacted via her website,

Format: Hardcover
A powerfully emotional story that draws you in and doesn't let you go. It's perfectly balanced with scenes that are heartbreaking, triumphant, brutal, and occasionally humorous.

Huff has an exceptional talent for creating remarkable, three-dimensional characters. And her female leads are strong, not because of what they can accomplish physically, but because they symbolize bravery, selflessness, determination, and are as alpha as any leader could ever be.

Mirian, the story's protagonist, and Danika, the Mage-pack's Alpha, were both incredibly clever. They were level-headed, quick thinkers who did everything possible to avoid being at a disadvantage. They possessed all of the qualities that made them ideal heroines.

The story's plot was complex and layered with multiple points of view that kept me engaged in the story. From the very beginning, we're thrown right into the middle of a war. We learn about the wolf packs, Mage-packs, and one power-hungry emperor's plan to control them all.

Mirian, a seemingly low-level mage, finds herself on a journey to rescue five women who were taken under the emperor's command. She is joined by Tomas, the Alpha's brother, who has suffered an unbearable amount of loss during the war and refuses to add the women of the Mage-pack to this increasing number of casualties.

One of the most fascinating aspects of this story was the progression of Mirian's talents. She has spent her entire life believing herself capable of only first level abilities, but finds that during intense, highly emotional situations, her mage-craft is elevated. What she becomes capable of is astounding and, in an interesting twist, is also not without consequences.

Absolutely wonderful - riveting worldbuilding from the first few pages! One of the best books I've read in a long time. Very sorry to reach the end & hope to see more set in this world again.

I've long been a Tanya Huff fan. I enjoy the depth she paints into her stories and this one is no different. A bit of a different approach to the werewolf/mage theme and I throughly enjoyed it. It definitely earns 5 stars in my book. Hope there's a sequel in the works as this world definitely deserves more!

Silvered was an excellent and complex book. It is clearly set up to have more to follow. However, the editorial reviews called it a paranormal romance. It was definitely paranormal, but not so clearly romantic, though there were a lot of seeds placed for a complex romance to follow.

The story was about Mirian. Mirian is about 19, just through with her first year at the institute, or their equivalent of college. It did not go particularly well and she isn't planning on going back, despite her parents hopes and expectations. Her country, Aydori is ruled by wolf shape-shifters, or "pack". The ruling class is pack. They are attracted to and intermarry with mages, who each have one of six magical abilities. The strongest mages are attracted to the strongest pack members and take on the characteristics of their spouses, becoming the "Mage pack". The empire, a nearby technologically advanced country, has just conquered their two neighbors and is presently attacking Aydori. Our story opens as the ruling pack members and their Mage spouses descend on Mirian's town to be closer to the fighting and to reassure the population of their protection. Mirian's family sees it as a great match-making opportunity. Mirian sees herself as not in the market. Although she has widespread Mage skills and tested highly, she ended up being a low level Mage in training and therefore not desirable to pack. Our first clue that all is not as it seems is that a high ranking single pack member finds Mirian unexpectedly entrancing, but his attention comes just as the war takes a bad turn and wipes out the front line defense of the pack.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By April M. Steenburgh VINE VOICE on November 26, 2012
Format: Hardcover
The Kingdom of Aydori is home to the Pack, a social structure of wolf shape shifters, and the Maqe Pack, their partners and members of their own magical hierarchy.

The Empire, guided by the scattered words of its soothsayers, makes Aydori its next target, specifically six pregnant mages that will either be the downfall or the saving of the Empire. The Emperor wants to control that power, and to do so, kidnaps the pregnant members of the Mage Pack. But there are only five.

The sixth mage is Mirian, a girl who considers herself to be of no magical distinction. Ignoring propriety and physical constraints, she sets off after the Mage Pack and their kidnappers, intent on setting them free.

The Silvered is riddled with spectacular world building. The culture Huff builds up around her shape shifters is utterly fascinating, and makes them breathe far beyond what the genre generally has to offer. Humor, horror, romance, magic, and violence- The Silvered has a little of something for everyone.

I am particularly fond of stand-alone novels in the middle of a genre that heavily favor series. The Silvered tells a complete story, start to finish. I would love to see more stories in the world Huff has created, but I am so very content with the story she wove this time around.

Highly recommended.
