Silvern by Christina L. Farley
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Jae Hwa Lee is preparing for the rest of her life. It is now time to take the test for her second-degree black belt and it should be easy after fighting the demi-god that haunted her ancestors. Unfortunately for her the god of darkness, Kud, has other plans. The person she is to spar with for her test is really an assassin who is trying to kill her. Jae survives and has a new mission. She must find the lost White Tiger Orb before Kud does. Kud isn’t the god of darkness for nothing. He will exact his revenge on those Jae loves in order to get her to do his bidding. What or who is Jae willing to sacrifice for the downfall of Kud? Will she have to be tested more than once?
Silvern is the second book in the Gilded series. Farley picks up soon after the end of the last book and spends a lot of time reviewing tidbits from that volume. Although I had read Gilded just a few months ago, the refresher was useful, especially with the unique names and places. The storyline was varied and fast paced so that the reader will quickly lose track of time and find the pages flying past. The ending isn’t a cliffhanger in the traditional sense, yet the reader will wish the next book was already out.
