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.
I gave Silverwolf three stars because I'm jumping in at the second book in the series without having read the first and this book doesn't give a lot of information as to what took place in the first.
There is a lot of for the various races and communities as they struggle to find their way as magic rampant turns their world upside down.
I liked the way the characters attempted to work through their problems to find a common ground and a way forward through the new surprises and teaming up to over come their struggles. It is however a really good read. I thought Silverwolf was fascinating, unique and fun.
