Silver was, simply put, amazing. I was instantly sucked into the story by the beautiful magic and romance. While the love story happens very quickly, it still feels genuine and it didn’t make me like it any less.
Boys just don’t seem to notice Brianna, so when the necklace that hides her identity falls off, she feels like she is being seen for the first time—and in a way she is. Since the story starts out just before Brianna loses her bracelet, we just get sucked into the thrill of being noticed along with Brianna.
I really thought that the story would be filled with quite a bit of angst from the description (“why doesn’t anyone notice me, whah, whah,” etc.). Luckily, that’s not really how it played out. Yes, Brianna had her emotional lows, but rather than coming across as angsty, I really felt for her. Brianna has been through a lot in her life and you just have to feel compassionate for her, as well as intrigued by the cause behind some of the more colorful problems she has encountered.
The mythology in Silver was intriguing—partially because I am not very familiar with Norse myth, so every aspect of the story felt new and fresh to me. My favorite part, however, was undoubtedly the romance. I adored Blake and Brianna. It is kind of a Romeo/Juliet type of love story—tragic, but lovely at the same time.
