Any of you that have been following my reviews for a while know that I love books from the Author duo that is Ilona Andrews. Let me tell you now that Silver Shark is no exception. And before you say “Oh, but it’s the second in the series, I can’t read it before I read the first.” let me set you at ease. Silver Shark easily stands on its own.Even if you’re not a big sci-fi fan there is still a big chance you will enjoy Silver Shark. I was immediately enveloped into this rich world that continuously grew around me as I read. Then there are the characters.
Claire is this amazing woman that we get to see all sides of. At the beginning she is tough-as-nails military hard ass. Then the war is over and when she is deported to another planet she has to hide what she really is or be killed. I could since the fear and vulnerability in her and I felt for her. As part of Claire’s refugee agreement she must find employment. This is how she meets Venturo, and oh what a meeting. In all honesty I grinned through the whole meeting. Once you read it you will understand, the scene was fun, sad, and charming all at the same time. I loved Venturo. He is this strong, intimidating, and powerful psycher who will try to hide from his aunt at the drop of a hat to avoid going to some big family social thing.
The chemistry between Claire and Venturo was so good and amazingly unrushed. The more I think about Silver Shark the more I wonder how Andrews packed so much story into 96 pages, but it was all there and I enjoyed every moment. I can’t wait to visit this world again.
Loved it! I want to know about everything this author writes.
