The Silent Blade Kindle Front

Dromiskin, Ireland. 925 A.D.

Eira has no greater desire than to see her life returned to what it once was—before her older brother Kevin’s sudden disappearance four years earlier. But the simple life she hoped for seems unattainable; on the contrary, her life is about to get all the more complicated.
When she suddenly finds herself and Willem, her twin brother, taken captive by someone who claims to be Kevin’s enemy, things go from bad to worse. It soon becomes clear that she and Willem are to become bait in a trap set for Kevin, and Eira knows she must try to warn him. But how, when she herself is a captive?
As mysteries of the past are unveiled, and loyalties are revealed, Eira realizes how precious her friends truly are. And when mortal danger threatens those nearest to her, will she be able to trust God with the lives of her friends and family?

 

 

My Review:

The Silent Blade surprised me. It was my first experience with this author, and I must say I’m already looking forward to more. While this book was not perfect, there were so many great things about it.

 

Plot/Storyline: 4/5

It was a little unrealistic at times, yet I was drawn along. No problems holding my interest.

 

Characters: 4/5

While likable, there was room for some character development. I loved all the guy characters, by the way. They are awesome. :)

 

Writing: 4/5

Sometimes it was a little choppy and confusing, but for the most part it was wonderful!

 

Want-to-read-ability: 4/5

The first page drew me in immediately. That was one of my favorite things…there was no “breaking into the story” chapters!
