The story picks up right where book 1 leaves off. We follow Miri as she figures out what to do with the silver charm that Alistair left behind. She has nightmares and questions that torments her until the charm mysteriously disappears and back into the hands of her uncle. The leader of PAWS (Jessamyn) seeks help from Quentin (a Wizard and former lover), who claims to have repented his past association with Alistair.
And what of Jenna, Miri's friend at PAWS? The young girl who was once held captive by Alistair, is carrying a terrible secret: she's preggers with his child. Miri can feel/sense evil within the unborn baby. While Miri battles internally of telling Jenna exactly what she's carrying, she still wants to be her friend and have Jenna experience the joys of being pregnant.
Argentum is a very well-written story. I like the authors style, giving the reader just enough detail for them to use their imagination without telling them every last detail. The characters are rich and well developed, and the storyline has sufficient layers to keep the reader interested. If I had one concern (not a complaint), it would be that this story was a bit more ‘grown up’ than P.A.W.S. The first book in the series, I felt, was assessible to all teens, as I saw it as a ‘YA’ book. The storyline in this second book as some elements in it, though neither graphic nor harsh, were a bit much for younger teens. Therefore, this second book would be best suited for the 15/16+ crowd.
All in all, I enjoyed the story. I will certainly read the next in the series, as it’s just that good. Well done. I recommend this book for older teens and anyone that enjoys well-written Urban Fantasy.
However, in "Argentum", the second book in the P.A.W.S series, the maturity of the tone seemed much more mature than the first one, despite only a year having passed. The thought-to-be-vanquished villain, Alistair, lives on in non-corporeal form, and once again it falls to Miri and her friends to save the day.
In many series of this nature, one where we basically watch the main characters grow from childhood into adulthood (okay, into adolescence, at least), we expect the themes to become more "adult" as it goes along. However, there were a couple of scenes in this book that I found quite disturbing and difficult to read, based on the age of the characters, scenes of violence that I would prefer not to describe.
I will say, however, that the universe that Ms. Kupfer has crafted is one of great complexity, one hidden so deftly alongside our own "human" universe that one might actually believe it truly exists. The characters are well-developed (though I think they could be even more well-developed in future volumes), and Miri is a wonderful main character.
I look forward to the next book in the series!
All in all a very clean , well narrated and constructed book. It has paranormal, romance and urban setting all wrapped in one. I am onto the third book now.
