The only reason I didn't want to read this was because of the mention of lycanthropes in the description. But, as it turns out, I never saw mention of them in the story. I guess I blocked them out. j/k
Somehow I forgot that this was a short story and when I started reading it, I felt like I was just dropped into the middle of too much going on and I thought this was going to be a tedious book to read because I'd have to understand the beginning in retrospect and I hate that. But despite that, and the threat of it being a werewolf store, I continued on because the writing <b>was so damned good.</b>
This author has a voice like a pro. I don't know how to describe it really, but it's like some authors, just to name a few random names that pop into my mind, Stephen King and John Sandford, for example, they write with some kind of skill and authority. When you start reading them, you know that you're reading an author who knows exactly what he's doing, and that's how Rob Rowntree writes. Strong and smooth.
It was the writing skill alone that propelled me forward into the story, and then I started really getting into the actual plot and I was glad I decided to read this.
And then it was over.
Now I have to see how good Unbound Brothers is, which is another one that I passed based on the description, but if the writing is as good as it is in Silver, there's no way I'll fail to enjoy it.
