Review: The Silver Bullet by Josie Jaffrey

The Silver BulletSynopsis:

The truth is out, and Emmy is faced with a choice she dreads: surrender her mortality, or allow her frailty to threaten the nascent society the Silver are building. With exile the only reasonable alternative, she struggles with feelings she can’t define and a duty she’s reluctant to accept.

While the Silver city hangs in the balance, Emmy must remake herself to redeem it and save her friends. Her reinvention forces her to choose sides, threaten alliances and risk becoming like those she fears: inhuman.

Favorite Lines:

I didn’t keep track!!!

My Opinion:

I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

This is the final book in the Solis Invicti series; even though I hope Jaffrey keeps it going somehow. It follows Emilia as she has to learn how to fight and save her friends and the city from the clutches of Ben and the rest of the traitors. No spoilers, but Emmy goes through a big change and has to learn how to adjust.

This book has my new(?) ship in it. I put a question mark there because I guess it isn’t really new it was just second place to my original one but now that it’s happening maybe I like it more?

We get to see more of Laila in this book. We haven’t really seen her since the first book and had only been hearing about her periodically. I actually really liked her character and was surprised that I did. She has a twisted sense of humor, but maybe that is what makes her so funny. Her interactions with Emmy are always interesting to read.

This book also has a plot twist that I did not see coming and it was pretty good. I usually consider any plot twist that I didn’t see coming to be good, and I did not see this coming. I do wish that Jaffrey had gone into further detail about Emmy. She kept talking about how she is different but never elaborated much about it.

I really like that this book offers up the possibility of multiple different futures in regard to the Silvers (you’ll see when you read it). That being said, I don’t think that I like that the ending was left kind of open. There is some closure, but it is still somehow left open ended. We don’t know what the future will bring for Emmy and the rest of the world. Maybe that is the point, but I think I would like a bit more closure.

Summary:

Overall, this was a really good book and I am sad to see the series end. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did! Happy reading, everyone!
