{Book Review:} The Sound of Silver by Rachelle Rea

My Review:
(Quick side note... I apologize for my absence! My new husband and I made a big move in August and we're still settling in.)

This book is incredible!! I thoroughly enjoyed The Sound of Diamonds, the first in this series, but I was unprepared for how much I would enjoy it's sequel!

Silver picks up right where we left off in Diamonds. Boy, does the story pick up speed! Rea throws us in the heat of the action fairly soon into the pages. Her pacing, the story line, and the historic elements to this novel were simply fantastic and worthy of applause. As I read, I could see the story unfolding in my mind. It was absolutely beautiful!

My favorite thing about this novel would probably be Gwyn's character development. She truly changes in a realistic manner. Rea takes her from point A in Diamonds, to now point B at the end of Silver. I'm eagerly looking forward to how she takes Gwyn to point C in Emeralds!

If you like historical novels with a little bit of action and adventure thrown in, I would highly encourage you to check out this series. You won't regret it! Rea is a shining new novelist that you won't want to miss. Trust me. ;-)
