The Silver Bullet by Josie Jaffrey
Josie Jaffrey has done it again!
I received an ARC or review copy of this book from the author/publisher. All opinions are my own.
Publisher’s Description: The truth is out, and Emmy is faced with a choice she dreads: surrender her mortality, or allow her frailty to threaten the nascent society the Silver are building. With exile the only reasonable alternative, she struggles with feelings she can’t define and a duty she’s reluctant to accept.
While the Silver city hangs in the balance, Emmy must remake herself to redeem it and save her friends. Her reinvention forces her to choose sides, threaten alliances and risk becoming like those she fears: inhuman.
The Silver Bullet is the final book in Josie Jaffrey’s Solis Invicti paranormal romance quadrilogy, 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.
Possible spoilers beyond this point.
Luna Lovebooks says…
Ms. Jaffrey has done it again! The Silver Bullet is full of action, betrayal, and just the right amount of steamy.
The action picks up right where Bound in Silver left off. It doesn’t let up from there. In all actuality if life hadn’t have gotten in the way I probably could have finished it in a day. I didn’t want to put it down! There are a few slower parts but they blend in well and never last long.
I do not want to give too much away, so all I will say on the betrayal front is this: I never saw it coming! Jaffery has a way of making me want to throw her books across the room (trust me this is a good thing). I was so surprised and hurt right along with Emmy that it felt like a personal betrayal. On a side note, I think I may be safer getting these books in paperback before re-reading them all. 😉
I love the love between Sol and Emmy! He truly loves her and wants her to choose even if it means losing her. It is refreshing from the “I’m gonna make you mine” attitude in many romance novels. True to life Emmy realizes that she has loved Sol all along. The tid bit where Drew pinned Emmy while training her felt true to life as well. It would be slightly awkward given their history.
The ending holds possibilities for more to the series or even the potential for spin off series. Either way it was an explosive ending to an amazing series!
I will shout my love for this series from the rooftops! I give this book 5 cures!
