There are some good ideas for an intriguing story. Sadly, they have gone to waste by rushing things.

Inhaltsangabe zu "Lady of Silver (Blood & Silver)"

A man on a mission A brutal crime is haunting detective Dale Morgan. A young woman has been murdered on the city’s outskirts, and her blood drained. Dale suspects the leader of a depraved cult may be to blame. Yet with barely a shred of evidence at the crime scene, Dale will have to turn to the one person he despises almost as much as the killers he puts behind bars.   A woman with secrets To humans, Saba Venn is a psychic, but she’s Albah, a race long forgotten by humans but who live amongst them, her powers fueled by blood and silver.  She agrees to help Detective Morgan, if it means stopping the vampire cult she believes is behind the killing. But the attraction she feels with Dale is immediate, and as their relationship intensifies she begins to doubt she can keep her secret from him. “A truly romantic paranormal tale.”–RT Book Reviews

    Kurzmeinung: There are some good ideas for an intriguing story. Sadly, they have gone to waste by rushing things.
    Fast-paced, yes, but not when it's too fast

    Hmm, ok, somehow the story promised to be much more than it actually turned out to be in the end.
    But first off, let's start with the good things about it.
    The idea of the Albah, a cross between witch and elf, and how a vampire comes to be is quite original. I like how the Albah magic works, especially the connections that can be accomplished via blood magic. Even more intrigued I was by Saba being unintentionally connected to the killer vampire. That could have made a very gripping story indeed. Sadly, it didn't.
    I felt like I was pulled through the plot too fast. There was no time to get deeper into the things that happened, let alone to get to know the characters properly. Oftentimes their actions were a mystery to me, their behaviour contradictory. Dale is the most prominent example for that. He can't seem to decide if he can handle Saba plus her magic. And suddenly he can, right after he's done his heroic deed which in itself was a very short episode that left me unsatisfied because of it. I mean, this is the end of it all? There are still so many questions unanswered, important ones like who made the vampire and why.

    Usually I like stories that come to the point quickly. But I like to explore, too, get deep into a world solely created by words. It's a pity that I wasn't able to do that here because the potential for that is definitely there. So I won't read the following books of this series. Perhaps there are people who enjoy this kind of shallow reading but I don't, sorry.
