In the straits of necessity, sometimes there isn’t room for freedom.
The Price of Silver is the second book in Josie Jaffrey’s Solis Invicti paranormal romance series, set in a dystopian, post-apocalyptic London where a deadly infection threatens to wipe out humanity. The only people who can stem its advance are the Silver, a vampiric race who offer a simple exchange: protection in return for blood and subservience.
Emmy is fenced in by the city, the walls marking the edge of safety closing in around her and sealing her in with one vampire who loves her and another who wants her dead. As she struggles to keep herself and the people she cares about alive, her fellow humans chafe against their enforced submission, and it becomes clear that there are bigger schemes and greater deceptions in play than she had ever imagined.
All the while, the monsters wait outside the barricades for their moment. Of one thing she is certain: without the help of the Silver, the humans won’t be safe for long.
I did it again with the quotes, guys. I am so sorry, and I will try not to get so wrapped up in the book that I don’t keep track of lines for you!
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for my honest review. It was another 4am night for me last night… I just couldn’t put the book down!
The story still follows Emilia while she continues to adjust to her new life. She is having a hard time because she is independent and doesn’t like feeling like she has to be protected all the time. But she realizes that it’s probably for the best because there is a Silver who wants her dead.
There is a love triangle of sorts going on in this series and I am not sure how I feel about it. Not because I think it’s bad, it’s very well done but I think my ship isn’t going to work out. No spoilers but one guy seems so good for Emilia and the other seems….not so good. Maybe my mind will be changed if it ends up working out the way I think it is going to but why does Jaffrey have to make me love one character just to see it maybe not work out with them?!?
This book is full of romance, mystery, and suspense. I still stand by my statement from the first review, this book series is a refreshing take on vampires and I really like it. I hope you all enjoy it as much as me! Happy reading, everyone!
