Tracking down a story concerning the shooting death by police of a young werewolf, Riley treks off without any support or back up. Her boyfriend and head of the preternatural bureau, David, has his hands full with solving and preventing any more children from being murdered land the humans blaming the preternatural community.
David discovers that Riley is not only missing but being held prisoner. He also discovers there is a coup being planned; in order to rescue Riley David must help coup planners. Neither Riley nor David are likely to forget that everything has a price and a consequence in the fairy world.
Once again, Fiona Skye has done an excellent job of word crafting and weaving a tale that is both engaging and riveting. As listeners we are privy to seeing a different side of Riley and David as they grow and change roles in this book. There are a couple of new characters introduced which promise to be just as intriguing as the others.
The narrator, P. J. Morgan once again was excellent in her narration. Her narration was consistent with the first book. I loved her rhythm for reading and expressive voice. When I hear P. J. Morgan narrate I hear Riley – she has a knack for taking on the character and wearing her proudly.
There were no issues with production. I appreciate the clearness of the audio book.

Fiona Skye sets the stage with an allegory to current events: a preternatural has been killed in an officer-involved shooting in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The officer involved in the shooting has a documented history of prejudice against preternaturals. Riley is lured from Tucson to Cedar Rapids when she gets a hold of a coroner's report that shows that there is no way the shooting could have been justified.
However, upon arrival, she is captured by agents of the Unseelie Faerie Queen, whom Riley angered by stealing a magical item in the first novel, and is taken into the Faerie world to be tortured repeatedly until her body gives out.
Simultaneously, Riley's boyfriend, Special Agent in Charge David Lo of the Preternatural Law Enforcement Bureau's Tucson Field Office, encounters a grisly case of an undocumented alien being murdered in the desert, with all signs pointing to a preternatural as the perpetrator. He deals with this in addition to the tension felt between him and Riley due to their disagreement on the Cedar Rapids shooting.
The way that Skye navigates the allegory is done well. Riley is decidedly not a fan of law enforcement (despite her current boyfriend and her most recent ex-boyfriend being LEOs), and the preternatural community is wary of law enforcement due to mishaps in the recent past. However, Skye manages not to delve into wholesale cop bashing with the Lo character, painting a picture from the LEO perspective and the challenges he faces while interacting with the public and attempting to gain their trust.
On top of that, Skye throws the reader for a loop on the events of the shooting, one that is sure to please readers, regardless of their position in the debate on law enforcement in the real world. If one wants to learn how to navigate a sensitive topic, they can certainly learn from Skye's efforts in SILVER SHACKLES.
As usual, the characters live in the pages, and the description of the scenery is on point. There is the added element of exploring post-traumatic stress, which Skye does in a knowledgeable and masterful fashion.
My only complaint about SILVER SHACKLES (and the one thing that keeps it from earning a fifth star and matching its predecessor) is that it ended a bit abruptly for my tastes. Your mileage may vary in that assessment, however. It is still a very solid book, regardless, and money well spent.
Also, foodies will rejoice at seeing that Skye has continued the tradition of including recipes for the food enjoyed by Riley and her cohorts throughout the work. Audience participation level: Fiona Skye.
I am anxiously awaiting the third book in the trilogy. At the end of the day, consider me a Riley O'Rourke fan, through and through.
