ARC Book Review - Sliverwolf By Jacey Bedford

                                                           SYNOPSIS
“Swashbuckling adventure collides with mystical mayhem…in this rousing historical fantasy series…set in a magic-infused England.”
—Publishers Weekly

Britain, 1801. King George’s episodic sanity is almost as damaging as his madness. First Consul Napoleon Bonaparte is gathering his forces in France. The disease of democracy is spreading. The world is poised on the brink of the modern era, but the rowankind, long a source of free labor, have shaken off their bonds. Some have returned to Iaru to find freedom with the Fae; others are trying to find a place in the world, looking for fair treatment under the law. The course of the industrial revolution may change forever.

Wild magic is on the rise. Creatures of legend are returning to the world: kelpies, pixies, trolls, hobs and goblins. 

Ross and Corwen, she a summoner witch and he a wolf shapechanger, have freed the rowankind from bondage, but now they are caught in the midst of the conflict, while trying their best to avoid the attention of the Mysterium, the government organisation which would see them hanged for their magic.

When an urgent letter calls Corwen back to Yorkshire, he and Ross become embroiled in dark magic, family secrets and industrial treachery. London beckons. There they discover a missing twin, an unexpected friend, and an old enemy—called Walsingham.

“A finely crafted and well-researched plunge into swashbuckling, sorcery, shape-shifting, and the Fae! Highly entertaining.”
—Elizabeth Ann Scarborough, Nebula Award-winning author of The Healer’s War




REVIEW


I was so excited when I got a chance to read Sliverwolf early.I dived into this book as soon as I could and I absolutely loved it . Sliver Wolf is such an amazing read

In the book we follow Ross and Corwen and I just adored these two together  you can see how in love they are  with each other , how much they care for each other  ahhh I could on and on, I love this couple . In  this book we spend a lot of time seeing the effects  both good and bad  of  the rowankind being freed from bondage, focusing the Mysteruim and focusing on  Corwen's family.I really felt for these magical creatures, with the government constantly trying to oppress them. Every time we saw any mention of the Mysterium  in this book I got  nervous, we got  to find out what they were planning and let me tell you it is nothing short of sinister . I loved that we got to spend time with Corwen's family,I felt like by the end of this book they were a lot  closer ,it was  bitter sweet in ways that I cannot  explain  because it would  be a spoiler but I think you will understand  when you read the book. It was just amazing to see how everything just connected in this story,there was not a dull moment in this book .With a swoon worthy romance ,  all the  different types of magical creatures  and the magic it self of course, the  amazing cast of character , the historical setting and the plot that had my eyes glued to the page Jacey Bedford creates an amazing story with Sliverwolf.

Sliverwolf was a sexy , thrilling , enchanting , magical  story. After reading this book I cannot wait to  get  my hand on the next  Rowankind book !. If you love all these things  in your stories I suggest you pick up a copy when it comes out January 3,2017.
