Editorial Reviews

Review

"It was filled with so much sparkle, vibrance, magic and at the same time darkness. Likewise, Silver Hollow can be called a paranormal or a dystopian book but somehow I feel as if it needs to have a genre of it's own, maybe a genre that was called Wonderland. That is the only word that can describe the world Jennifer Silverwood has written for us." -- Unputdownable Books
"If you are looking for something to sink into and get away completely from the real world- Silver Hollow is your ticket!" -- Reviewing in Chaos
"This is truly one to read, a sweeping fairy tale of epic proportions. And one down to earth heroine." -- Melissa Wright, Author of The Frey Saga
"Overall, Silver Hollow is an amazing adventure unlike anything else I've read and I'm so glad I took the time to dive into it." -- Ginger Read Reviews

Jennifer Silverwood is one of my online besties and reading a book by a close friend was both unusual and incredibly cool! Every time something mind blowing would happen in the book, I had to fight the urge to bombard Jenn with questions and rant about what I thought of this, and why I hated that. And when the end came rolling in, I was very close to writing her a huge email about how much I loved this book!

Silver Hollow began with such a Southern air, with barn parties, friends with the accent, the funny sayings and the whole shebang. As it continues, Amie (our main character) get's plucked from the only place she has ever known (or so she believes) and is planted under the castle roof of her Uncle Henry, who she has resented and ignored since her parents death.

The beginning of the book though usual does really draw you in. And it's not only because of the events occurring but also because of Jenn's writing style. It's different and carries a sort of Jane Austen flare. That Jane Austen flare sort of confused me when the book started. Instead of imagining the 21st century, I sometimes tilted towards the 17th century, and then it was a short cycle of that until Amie's departure from the States and to the UK, which then made the writing style, fit it perfectly. I cannot blame Jenn for trying to keep the writing as consistent as possible throughout the book.

For the characters, I absolutely loved Uncle Henry. He was so sweet, funny and the type of fatherly figure everyone needs in his or her life, even if it's just his or her Uncle. Amie was a wonderful character to follow and held all the traits a protagonist should have, including the annoying bit (but only sometimes).

I started Silver Hollow not knowing exactly what to expect. The cover art is beautiful and hinted at a magical, historical, romantic world and the synopsis implied a bit of urban fantasy. Plus, I'd read the author's previous work, Qeya (Heaven's Edge), which was a YA Sci-fi novella, and was taken with the storytelling. I just finished reading Silver Hollow and, as it turns out, I wasn't disappointed in any of my expectations.

The story begins with Amie's life in Texas as a writer, dreaming of being able to pen that one great work. After losing her parents, she didn't have much aside from her best friends, but she was getting by. Until the night she was stabbed in an alley by a mysterious stranger. This is all in the synopsis, so I'm not revealing any huge secrets here, and I won't. Because suddenly, Amie is thrust into a magical world with so many twists and turns it's nearly dizzying. Nearly. But discovering the secrets is half the fun of her story, so I'm going spoiler free.

Silver Hollow reminded me at first of a Wonderland tale with its fantastic characters and alternate world, but then fell to something beyond the rabbit hole. Every time you think you have a grasp of what's going on, what might be coming, it changes. There were elements of all my favorite stories within and even Amie begins to notice. She's thrown from the "real" world into period costumes, Gothic mansions, and magical creatures, but even though she changes, she's remains true. That may sound confusing, but I don't want to reveal plot. This is truly one to read, a sweeping fairy tale of epic proportions. And one down to earth heroine.

I almost didn't read this, but I am so glad I decided to. This offered a new take on so many things. Normally I breeze through books. I had to lay this down at almost each chapter to allow myself time to process. Not because I was bored.

It took me almost two days to read this. lol, so unless you a very fast reader this is a book that will easily take a week. I will probably read it again just to make sure I covered everything. The dictionary at the end also greatly helps!

I really, really wanted to like this book. The description was enticing and the cover was gorgeous, but that's about all the good I can say.

The problem with this book is that it reads like it's part of a series..book 2 or 3, not the first one. I even searched several times to see if I was missing a previous book, but no. Whoever edited this was obviously too familiar with the story and had the author cut out essential descriptions. Let me explain.

Whenever you read a series (such as the Sookie Stackhouse books, Anita Blake, etc), you'll notice that the author will use descriptions to help the first time reader catch up with the previous plot and characters. That's what happened here except it was done way too often and without cause. It was the assumption that you knew the past storylines that got to me. Obviously, whoever edited this had told the author to cut down on the writing and she did it by giving existing storylines short shrift. It was irritating and kept me from finishing the novel. I felt like I was jumping in the middle of a story and missing the beginning.

I truly don't understand the high ratings this book received from others. It was horrible.
