Synopses & Reviews
Andrew Dare is a werewolf. He's the enforcer for the Roanoke pack, and responsible for capturing or killing any Were intruders in Roanokes territory. But the lone Were he's tracking doesn't smell or act like anyone he's ever encountered. And when he catches her, it doesn't get any better. She's beautiful, she's crazy, and someone has tortured her by injecting silver into her veins. She says her name is Silver, and that she's lost her wild self and can't shift any more.
The packs in North America have a live-and-let-live attitude, and try not to overlap with each other. But Silver represents a terrible threat to every Were on the continent.
Andrew and Silver will join forces to track down this menace while discovering their own power and their passion for each other.
"In a world where werewolf pack territory squabbles hide a much bigger threat, Andrew Dare is the enforcer for the Roanoke pack, which covers the entire east coast of the United States. When he tracks down a trespasser in Roanoke territory, he finds Silver, a beautiful woman suffering from silver poisoning and assorted delusions. In his efforts to discover Silver's true identity and pack of origin, Andrew stumbles across a deadly mystery that threatens every werewolf in the country. Now, far from home, he has to play a perilous game of pack politics, recruiting unlikely allies in order to combat the killer who drove Silver insane and murdered her family. Meanwhile, as Andrew spends time with Silver, he grows to understand and care for her. Despite a few interesting twists, smooth writing, and genuine chemistry between the leads, there's little to make this story stand out. Agent: Cameron McClure, Donald Maass Literary Agency.

"Wow. What an amazing read! Held has taken a completely new and utterly believable look at werewolves and pack-based society and spun an engrossing tale that was so engaging I stayed up until 3am to finish it. She writes with the assurance and subtlety of an old hand while bringing something completely new to Urban Fantasy. I loved the characters and the marvelous twists of the story. Silver is a remarkable debut; I'm blown away." Kat Richardson, bestselling author of Greywalker
Urban fantasy takes a walk on the wild side with this remarkable debut novel.
