In the sand-covered queendom of Cavan, the goddess once saved a young Kaliope’s life, preventing the mercury her father attempted to hide in her blood from reaching her heart. Now, a cybernetic clamp filters it, but the silver streaks swirling faintly beneath her skin are a constant reminder that she’s different.

When nineteen-year-old Kaliope is chosen as head of the Nactue Guard, she becomes the sworn protector to her empress. In the midst of an invasion on a neighboring land, Kaliope is placed in charge of guarding Prince Caben, the last heir to his kingdom. But when they’re attacked by the feared Otherworlders, Caben and Kaliope are abducted and taken below to a realm where they must fight for their life in a caged arena.

Kaliope struggles to protect her princely charge, keeping him and herself alive while battling inhumanly opponents, and trying to save the stolen, sacred relic that will restore her empress’s life force and all of Cavan. And if she can somehow awaken the goddess within her, she may save what’s most important.

New Adult Dark Fantasy: Intended for readers 17 years of age and older.{Goodreads}
  I am going to start off by saying,..Don’t ever underestimate Trisha Wolfe. It will make you feel like a fool. Now, that being said, Trisha, I have never underestimated you. No. Not one bit. With every story of hers I am blown away. She has an incredible talent that I am glad she hasn’t let go to waste. I tend ti have the nasty habit of reading a books synopsis and then completely forgetting what it is about when I start it, jumping into a book without reading the synopsis, or skimming the synopsis and totally not understanding what the book is supposed to be about. I kind of like it though. I never do it on purpose but it always turns out for the better. Ok, well maybe not always but most of the time.  Where am I going with this?

  Yes, I skimmed the synopsis and had no clue what the heck I was getting into. All I knew was the author was Trisha Wolfe and the cover was really pretty xD Was it one of those books that turned out for the better because I didn’t read the synopsis? Well I wouldn’t say because of it but yes. It had positive results. I just find that I am pleasantly surprised when I do so. I did end up going back to Goodreads and reading the synopsis…but moral of the story: I am bad with synopsis’, Trisha Wolfe is amazing so I have full trust in her amazingness to not read the synopsis, Of Silver and Beasts has a pretty cover,  and this book was really really good.

  I don’t know how she does it but Trisha can take one of the most unusual plots and turn it into something magnificient. Seriously. Where did this book come from? Who would have thought of it? Not me that’s who! I can’t express how great this author is. Just how amazing her writing and stories are, so is she. Trisha is one of my most favorite authors. She is like a buddy-‘ol pall. ;D Knowing what a great person she is gives a positive feedback for her book. No, that does not mean this review is bias. I give credit to authors as authors and authors as people separately. I may love the author but dislike the book. I have sworn to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so don’t worry your little heads. ;D

  One other thing Trisha has down pact is her tragedies. People, I can’t number the times her stories have ruined my swollen my heart with love and then completely deflated it because of her endings. She is one cruel mistress. The endings leave you wanting nothing but more and hanging on a thread because of the wait. Now, I feel as if I have been talking too much about my synopsis problems and Trisha’s book as a whole so I am going to get a bit more focused k? K.

  Of Silver and Beasts is extremely unique. It kind of had that whole “Hunger Game” feel but…better. I liked how Trisha could take a huge world-wide plot and completely make it her own. So now that I have mentioned the Hunger Games, you may as well know that things get pretty intense, thrilling, action packed, and tragic. I felt pain for the characters that didn’t have any real part in the story. There is one part in particular that killed me. It was a pairing of blood (you will get that when you read it…hopefully). The reaction of the other killed. The devastation, anger and emotion that Trisha managed to get through was tragic. Tragic. That word will pop into your head a lot when you read it.

  I can’t really say more for fear of too many spoilers but know this: Of Silver and Beasts is a spectacular book that seized my heart. I am highly anticipating book two. I think you all should read it! If you have never read anything by Mrs. Wolfe before might as well start now! The characters in this book were wonderful and I enjoyed reading from the protagonists point of view. She was a great heroine and the hero…DAMN! That boy is HOT ;D I love him to no end. Oh goodness….I can feel spoilers trying to pull themselves to the surface. I might as well go. Moral of this review: Read. Read. Read. Of Silver of Beasts and the author are amazing. There is no room for disappointment.
