Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is urban fantasy as men's fiction--Sookie Stackhouse meets the Dresden Files by way of Maxim." - Publisher's Weekly

"Not only was Blood and Bullets not a fluke, but it seems as if it was nothing more than Tuck merely flexing his muscles, cracking his knuckles as he tossed off a quick "warming-up" novel before he really got down to business and started writing." -Blogcritics.org

"I think Blood and Silver was even more exciting than Blood and Bullets, although I hate to say it because that one is in my top favorite books EVER and I don't want to hurt its feelings." - Literary Escapism

"... James R. Tuck has done what many authors fail to do...written a sequel that knocks you back a step or two, surpassing expectations, and for me at least, carving his name onto my permanent reading list. His vision for urban fantasy is dark, gritty, violent, and full of monsters." - Vamp Chix Bite Club

I want to say that i did enjoy this book and read it during a slow shift at work. There are tons of action scenes and Deacon is just about as hardcore as a guy can get.
I did feel slightly left out of some of the story as I have not read Mr. Tuck's short stories, but I did read Blood and Bullets and I seemed to be able to orient myself to the story failry easily, although I do highly recommend reading the first book....well first.
The only complaint I have..and really it's not much of a complaint just something that kept the book from being rated higher was all the different types of "lycanthropes". I undestand the author is trying to be different but some of the "were"-species were quite ludicrous to me and made me laugh.....but maybe that was his point..I dunno.
Still, if you like guns and big dudes with shaven heads and facial hair (I'm biased cuz I am one)then you will like this book. Deacon wastes no time in stomping mudholes in people and walking them dry.

As a tough as nails monster hunter, Deacon Chalk spends every free moment tracking down the things that go bump in the night. With unique abilities and an uncanny ability to avoid death, it would seem nothing can stand in his way, no matter how strong his opponent may be. When he stumbles across a pregnant were-dog being beat to death by a nasty lycanthrope group, he rushes in to save her. However, this time he may have bitten off more than he can chew as he has put himself in the middle of a shifters war. With Deacon and his crew right in the path of danger, there will be no easy solution, and this time around the costs may be too high to bear.

While Deacon still has quite the chip on his shoulder, his conceitedness seems to have toned down several notches, making him much more bearable. I think a lot of his softening is due mostly in part to the influence Tiff has on him. Of course that relationship is quite complicated due to his inability to really move beyond the loss of his family and fully open up to another person. However, there is definitely something growing between them, and I really admire her patience and ability to slowly break down his walls. Another major improvement in his character would be the lessening of the constant lectures. Deacon may still be rather repetitive at times, but at least he didn't comes across as so preachy this time around.

The extremely graphic violence in Blood and Silver was a little too much for my tastes. Considering the fact that I read a lot of Urban Fantasy novels in which there is more than plenty violence, it really says something about how excessively violent Blood and Silver was to bother me. Perhaps, it isn't really the amount the violence, but more how descriptive it all was.

I did not think that Mr. Tuck could top Blood and Bullets. Well I was Wrong! The most enjoyable thing about the book is the non stop action. From the moment you start the first page to the last, its in your face action. I will buy every book he writes. Just keep cranking them out.

I wish I could have enjoyed this book more, I feel like there just aren't enough good male leads in the genre and I was really starting to like Deacon Chalk. However I found the story to be utterly predictable, at times a little too absurd, and it felt like there should have been much more to the story. A lot of time is spent espousing theological views (which came off as preachy to me) instead of character development. The story also seemed like it was over too fast, there were no real twists or bends, just a straight line from point A to point B. I knew how the book was going to end after only a few chapters. I kept waiting for the twist but it never came. All that aside it is still worth the read if you liked the previous installments. It just isn't on the same level.

Book Info: Genre: Urban Fantasy
Reading Level: Adult
Recommended for: fans of darker urban fantasy with male-oriented action
Trigger Warnings: rape and sexual assault (including against a child); murder and torture (including children)
Animal Abuse: This book was heavily filled with various types of were-animals. There is a lot of violence perpetuated against animals as a result.

My Thoughts: Leonidas and his crew absolutely infuriated me. The things they did... okay, yeah, so they were predator were-animals, but they choose to murder, torture, even eat people, including children--including babies. Horrible people, and I cheered Deacon on to each and every horrible death against them.

This book has all kinds of crazy were-animals: were-chickens, were-rabbits, were-lions, were-cougars, were-dogs of various types, were-lizards, were-snakes... you name it, there is probably a were-animal of its ilk connected to this story. The best was toward the end, but I don't dare say what it is because that would spoil the surprise.

I'm really into this story, that's for sure. I have one novella and one novel to go and I'll have finished the lot, and then will have to impatiently wait for Tuck to write something new. I really like this type of urban fantasy, without constant romance. There is a bit of romance, but it's bearable and overwhelmed by all the violence, so this is really my sort of thing. If you like darker urban fantasy, action-oriented, male-centric, definitely check out the Deacon Chalk series.
