Publisher's Summary

Talvi Marinossian has slain maenads and fought off vampire attacks, but nothing has prepared him for getting involved with one of these forbidden "modern girls". When he finally tracks down Annika it's obvious that she's changed since her recent adventure in his homeland. It's also clear that she's not ready to embrace the next chapter in her life. He tries to persuade her to open up to him, but she finds it difficult since he won't even explain how he earns a living, why he has a secret cell phone, or the reason he keeps another woman's handkerchief in his pocket. Instead of relying on Talvi to help her adjust, Annika delves into her music and her job, and it isn't long before the new lovers find themselves completely out of sync with one another. Just when they start to find their rhythm, Talvi is called away on business and whisks Annika off to Paris for what is supposed to be a working vacation. But one bad decision leads to another, and the chaos that ensues may cost someone their life.
You'll enjoy this edgy and dark blend of new adult urban fantasy and paranormal romance if you're a fan of Laurell K. Hamilton, Kresley Cole, Donna Grant, Charlaine Harris, Karen Marie Moning, Jeanine Frost, J.R. Ward and Lynsay Sands.

Makes you want to punch them but....

What did you love best about The Silver Thread?

Hands down, the narration. It made all the moments I wanted to pull my hair and punch the characters all worth while

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Silver Thread?

ANYTHING involving Stella (honestly, that kid rocks!)...Other than that it would have to be the scene where Annika asks Talvi to play the electric guitar during band practice and they finish the elusive song.

What does Nick Cracknell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He is amazing. I'm currently reading the 3rd book which has no narration at the moment and I miss Nick. There are so many characters in this book and he is able to give them all life & seems to even bring their personalities out. He uses the same voice and accent for Talvi and Finn but somehow they are different enough that you can tell the brothers apart. I find myself attempting to use the same voices in my head while reading book head is not nearly as good at playing Nick as Nick is at playing the gazillion different characters. Also, I have no idea who Stella is or whose idea it was to add her but cheers for that (also thanks for adding in Annika singing!)

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

As before, definitely the part where Talvi joins band practice and they finish the song. I was also very fond of the "James blows up and goes nuclear" scene after the sugar and fire incident which leads to said nuclear blow up and ultimately fun times with pixie dust.

Any additional comments?

Worth it if only for the narration!

Back to Reality

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

This book picks up where the first book ended. Annika is depressed by being thrown back into the real world where no one believes her story. Talvi crosses worlds to find her. Very romantic gesture!

Annika's personality still drives me crazy but I had come to expect that with the first book. It's annoying that one moment she's all over Talvi and the next she's accusing him of being unfaithful...again.

But I really did enjoy this book. The voice acting is incredible. The story is great and kept my interest. I especially like the scene with "the song." The entire time in Paris was...interesting. Don't want to give anything away. And I liked that we get to see Talvi's family again and learn more about his background.

And it's another cliffhanger! I can't wait to read the third book to find out what happens.
