TRAPPED IN SILVER BY EMILY SOWDEN BOOK REVIEW!!
Courage comes from a shadowed place in our hearts; a blurred line that straddles love and sheer stupidity.
To seventeen-year-old Ava, wild woodcats, hungry stragglers, and simple-minded townsfolk are the evils she’s grown accustomed to. But when Ethan, an unusual man with eyes of smoke and fire opal, enters her world she quickly understands that there are worse things out there than drunken men and carnivorous forest creatures. She’s a specialised liar and a hell of a fighter, but against a group of animalistic men called Berserkers she struggles to survive the encounter as the desperate swing of a dagger is all it takes to change her life for good.
Half-dead and hunted by the Berserker’s leader when he forms a monstrous obsession with her, Ava escapes his pursuit in an unfamiliar land full of impossible creatures, unlikely allies, and the man she doesn’t know whether to kiss or kill.
But after dreadful news of her missing brother surfaces, Ava becomes more involved in the centuries-long war and begins to unravel the reasons behind her relentless nightmares, discovering truths long-buried in a violent history of love, loss and betrayal.
This book was everything I wanted and more. The writing was just divine and the building of the world was just magical and absolutely amazing and it was really quite hard to tell that this is Emily’s debut novel!
This book was filled with twists and turns that kept me on edge and made me not want to stop reading it. This book was packed with non stop mystery and magic!
The main character Ava was one of those kick ass main characters that you can’t help but just adore, she is also very independent and filled with sarcasm.
Overall, this book was very fast paced, mysterious and very action packed, filled with a world that’s very intriguing and a gorgeous writing style. I would recommend this especially to those that love Sarah J Maas’ book ‘A Court Of Thorns and Roses’ as the writing reminded me a lot of that series that I also absolutely adore. I can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel!!
STAR RATING: 4.75 OUT OF 5 STARS
