BOOK ONE in THE SILVER SERIES.
Dishonorably discharged from the Hunter Division and banished for crimes she did not commit, Silver struggles to come to terms with her new prison-like surroundings: a segregated area of the city called the Fringe District, populated by murderers, thieves and rapists.
Starving, and desperate for money, she reluctantly accepts the Police Division’s invitation to enroll in a covert Bounty Hunter program: an initiative devised to infiltrate the criminal underworld of the Fringers, and to force the very worst warrant dodging law-breakers to meet their fate–death.
Unfortunately, Silver doesn’t realize that the Police Division is about to up the ante. They need more than little snippets of information and arrests–they need someone to pull the trigger. They need an executioner.
SILVER: Acheron is the first book (a 40,000 word novella) in a 10-book series featuring the character of Ella ‘Silver’ Cross. Set more than 300yrs in the future, the Silver Series takes place in a post-apocalyptic, dystopian world where humans are a species on the brink of extinction. No longer at the top of the food chain, humans are preyed upon by the Chimera–genetic mutants that outnumber humankind 25:1.

In my first post for this tour, I promised a review… Here’s to hoping its up to par 😉
Well now, my distopian fans will fall in love! I did 🙂 and I will say maybe if you aren’t for the darker side of things, it may not be for you. I actually loved this part. The fact that things are not pretty and cuddly are what made this book for me! It’s gut-wrenching, scary, cruel, but beautiful 🙂 I know those things don’t always go well together, but for here, it’s perfect!
Silver is complicated. She’s tough- as a hunter she must be- and yet she has a forbidden love with a fellow hunter- this gets her into trouble- and she saves a woman she may not normally save. I like this about her. Even though her family is “special” she isn’t the spoiled brat, she works hard and is smart and will fight for what she believes in.
The world created here is just fantastic! I don’t know how else to say it. It’s quite hard core as well. Things are changing for Silver and her family and it’s about to get even more complicated!
There’s nothing like sitting on the edge of your seat. That feeling when you just HAVE to know what’s going to happen, and when you finish you realize you were completely captivated by the story. The author’s writing style is unique, but very gripping. I’m not sure if I’d only call this distopian as it also has an urban fantasy feeling to it. Plus, there’s a ton of plot twists, so now the rest will be up to you to find out what’s gunna happen 🙂 I definitely recommend this to my apocalyptic fans! I’m so in for the next round! 🙂 I look forward to the next book.
