Book Review: Scars of Silver

Scars of Silver

By:  S.A. Archer & S. Ravynheart

Format:  eBook

Publisher:  Ravynheart Publishing

Publish Date:  December 5, 2011

Series:  2nd in Rise of the Unseelie series
Affiliated with Touch series, and Champion of the Sidhe series

Book Synopsis:
You'd think the fey would have each others' backs.  That's what you think... if you never met any.

Malcolm is Sidhe, the only race that possesses the coveted magic of the Touch.  He's also an untrained teenage runaway who only just discovered that he's fey.  He thought the fey would have each others' backs.  That's what he honestly thought...

Until he met a Changeling.

First Sentence:
Malcolm still smelled like industrial hand soap from his sink bath at the gas station.

My Thoughts and Summary:
Malcolm, a young homeless (runaway) fey, found the Fairy Circle shop by the strong fey smell.  A fey hangout, maybe?  Malcolm is looking to find out about fey, a book on his kind.  As he scans the shelves at the shop he see they have one.  The Shop owner, Flora, sees and approaches Malcolm, finds what he is looking for, and gives him directions to find Rand.  Going in search of things Malcolm has never learned about may not end in the best of cercumstances for him...  Donovan is still looking for the sidhe, and exiles that now could be in grave danger since the Mound fell.

I don't know what it is, but this one I think is my favorite thus far.  Maybe it's the understood, thin connection to London's story in Addicted that helps that feeling.  But I like Malcolm's story.  Unfortunately for Malcolm, it's not the happiest of stories but I think that's why I like it.  There is a dark side here.

Malcolm physically struggles, greatly, here.  He is a nieve fey, not knowing what he is or his powers and he is forced to learn.  I felt bad for Malcolm, but Malcolm is written as a strong minded character as well.

I do like the Unseelie story side, very much.  And this one is my favorite yet.  I look forward to more on this side of things.  And I'm still curious about surviving with out the Mounds, and how the exiles have managed to do so for so long.


I received a copy of this short story for an honest review from the author.
