The Price of Silver by Josie Jaffrey
Publisher’s Description: In the straits of necessity, sometimes there isn’t room for freedom.
The Price of Silver is the second book in Josie Jaffrey’s Solis Invicti paranormal romance series, set in a dystopian, post-apocalyptic London where a deadly infection threatens to wipe out humanity. The only people who can stem its advance are the Silver, a vampiric race who offer a simple exchange: protection in return for blood and subservience.
Emmy is fenced in by the city, the walls marking the edge of safety closing in around her and sealing her in with one vampire who loves her and another who wants her dead. As she struggles to keep herself and the people she cares about alive, her fellow humans chafe against their enforced submission, and it becomes clear that there are bigger schemes and greater deceptions in play than she had ever imagined.
All the while, the monsters wait outside the barricades for their moment. Of one thing she is certain: without the help of the Silver, the humans won’t be safe for long.

Luna Lovebooks says…
Likes: I love the way the lines in this novel are blurred. Are the humans just as bad as the Silver? Can the Silver show the same compassion as a human? The world of this novel is no longer black and white. I also love that Emmy questions her place in this new world. She still clings to the old world but after several mishaps forages, a new mindset while maintaining her semi-rebellious attitude. There are plenty of surprises and delicious twists to make readers want to continue reading and continue the series.
Dislikes: There was a lot of going back and forth in this one. Does Emmy love Sol or does she love Drew? Are her feelings nothing more than an effect of the Brand? While I do understand her dilemma, it got tiresome after awhile.
Overall I loved this book as much as the first and can’t wait to read the next installment, leaving me to give this book four stars as well.
