Bound in Silver by Josie Jaffrey REVIEW + EXCERPT


If you're living against the clock, try not to do it in a cage.


Exiled from the city and from the affections of the vampire who had loved her, Emmy finds herself pushed into a captivity she never expected to experience. With the bond to her former protector broken, she knows that the chance to turn Silver is now a monstrous obligation rather than a glittering opportunity.

In an unfamiliar place among unfamiliar people, Emmy feels deserted by those Silver she had thought of as friends, out of sight and out of mind. If only her enemies were equally forgetful.

Bound in Silver is the penultimate book in Josie Jaffrey's Solis Invicti paranormal romance quadrilogy, 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.

This one built up momentum from the last that seemed to mostly be building more framework and held enough new action and adventure that it could hold its own as a standalone and was not only a supporting role in a series. I will say though, Emilia, calm down girl. In the matter of two weeks we are introduced to four men she has been sexually active with. Get it girl. I do love strong willed characters and where the last book she came off a little repetitive and arrogant, she was tempered down and even balanced out to have found her perfect match in a boy who is just as snappy as she is.

I received this book free from the author for an honest review.

He leaned away from me and gently released my left arm from the top before carefully pulling the material over my head and off my right hand, his eyes intent on his task until it was complete, but as soon as the top hit the floor he raked me with his gaze.

“You are so beautiful,” he said as he pushed my hair away from my face. “I think I’ve wanted you since the first time you called me an idiot.”

“To your face or behind your back?” I asked with a saccharine smile.

“Well, you might have some other names for me in about five minutes’ time. Ten tops.”

“Like ‘Quickfire’?” I asked.

“I was thinking more along the lines of ‘Jesus’ and ‘Oh, god’, but whatever works for you.”
