A Bargain in Silver by Josie Jaffrey – Book Review

Hello All!!!

The last book review for the month of June, is here. For the month of June, I was able to complete quite many books and this is the last one.

First of all I would like to thank the author, Josie Jaffrey for sending me a digital copy of the book, in exchange for an honest review.

Without further ado, let’s head into the review.

Synopsis

If the price of safety is slavery, would you bargain your life?

A Bargain in Silver is book one of Josie Jaffrey’s Solis Invicti paranormal romance series, set in a dystopian, post-apocalyptic London.

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. It’s not a deal that Emmy’s willing to make, but as her world burns around her she finds herself in the arms of the enemy and the line between oppressor and saviour begins to blur.

After an attack by the infected, Emmy is rescued by the handsome Drew who introduces her to the world of the Silver. Desperate to escape subjugation and confused by her attraction to him, she gathers what remains of her surrogate family and plans to make a break for freedom.

But despite her efforts to resist, she is drawn further into the intrigues of the mysterious Silver through the agency of their ruler, the Primus: Solomon. Emmy refuses to submit to the cold and detached Primus and an attempt on her life makes it clear that he is unable to protect her from the political machinations of his race.

As the connection between them deepens she must choose between her desire and her will to rebel, but can she trust his intentions when everyone is after her blood? (from Goodreads)

My Review

If the price of safety is slavery, would you bargain your life?

when I first received the copy of the book, I was not sure what to expect. Since I am not a person who enjoys the stories of Vampires and Zombies much. But, once I started reading the book, I could not put it down. 🙂 🙂 🙂

The important characteristics I found in this book are as follows;

  1. The setting and the background of the story is well created and once you start to read the story, the Vampire and Zombie world is being created in front of your eyes, with the visual effects.
  2. Each character was created and constructed well, with proper interconnections with the other characters. This, I think is the success behind the story.
  3.  Though it was not clearly shown, the love triangle between Emmy, Drew and Sol was visible. It was al about their emotions.
  4. Emmy’s life is in jeopardise, due to this love triangle and her connections with the silver. Sometimes, I felt so annoyed for the way the female protagonist of the story was treated.
  5.  It would have been really great if, we could have got to know more about the world or the setting of the story and how the characters would have dealt with it.
  6. The story was intriguing  and  it kept me awake at night, just to know what will happen in the next chapter.
  7. The story was well written and carefully constructed. Had so much fun reading it.
