About Amy Corwin

Award-winning author Amy Corwin is an insatiable reader and writer. She joined the Romance Writers of America at its inception and Mystery Writers of America after her first hardcover mystery, Whacked! was published. She writes Regencies, paranormal romances, and mysteries, although to be truthful, most of her books include a bit of murder and mayhem since she discovered that killing off at least one character is a highly effective way to make the remaining ones toe the plot line.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 stars - I loved it!!

This book is WOW!! Amy Corwin is a new author for me, and I will definitely be looking to read the first book Vampire Protector in the Redemption series. I can’t even put into words why I loved it. There was Quicksilver’s sad back story that makes you instantly want her to win. I can’t believe some of the things she had to deal with, but I’m not going to ruin it for you (you will have to read it!) Then there is Kethan who is a mystery unto himself, and he has his own secrets. They are both in this struggle to trust each other and both want what is best; they just both do not agree on what that is. I think this represents a similar struggle most people go through looking for someone who accepts you no matter what mistakes you made or make. I usually like more romance, but Amy did this perfectly. If you love paranormal, you have to read this :)

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The beginning chapter where the negotiations first take place dragged on a bit too much, but right after tgat, things start to get interesting. I did think Quicksilver fell apart a lot and she truly is messed up inside, but I think she did that because she was finally with someone (Kethan) that pushed her to the edge, made her evaluate herself. Before, she just pushed all her emotions down and kept her past at a distance. I could relate to that. I loved how Kethan was so patient with her and came to live her. The suspense and action were great. There were a few short sex scenes, so it's not for teens or kids. I loved the ending. I know it's predictable and trite, but still puts a smile on my face. I'll definitely reread this story.

A Fall of Silver was a great book! I loved the interaction between the main characters (Allison/Quicksilver and Kethan). Both of them (as well as the other characters), kept the story flowing smoothly. The constant battle of good and evil is fought from the beginning to the end. You are forced to realize that good and evil aren't just black and white. As you go through and learn about the struggles that each of the main characters went through to bring them to the places in life they are now, you understand some of the decisions that were made and realize that they are just living the best that they can. The romance between Quicksilver and Kethan is predictable, but well written.

This was a good book. In the crowded field of paranormal romance, the story was surprisingly fresh. The characters were believable. The plot did not have any major holes. If you are a fan of this genre, you will enjoy this fast paced read.

Review by: sunbeemama on March 28, 2013 :
A Fall of Silver, by Amy Corwin, is not a book I would particularly recommend. The protagonist, Quicksilver, is a vampire hunter lethal enough to enjoy a reputation amongst her prey, yet she is completely unbalanced, sobs uncontrollably at the drop of a hat and at inappropriate moments, claims to be suspicious of everyone yet allows a strange man to stay a night at her house (and compounds this by moving in with him the following day), throws up upon seeing a dead body (you'd think the novelty would have worn off by now), and allows her entire mission in life to be sidetracked just because two priests took her out for coffee. Her lack of self-control and emotional outbursts would be enough to have gotten her killed long before, as the unhinged, hysterical blonde in any typical scary movie who is always the first to die, and casting her as some kind of elite vampire hunter is laughable to say the least. As for the romance aspect, there is absolutely no chemistry between her and her love interest. He seems to be interested in her just because he's been worked up by viewing scantily-clad women on posters at his mechanic's shop. She's interested in him because... well I guess because he's apparently attractive. Attractive enough that she lets him order her around without putting up more than a token, sulky resistance, even when she is asked to do things entirely against her nature and experience. The relationship is contrived and unbelievable. The story is boring and predictable, and even the vampires are pretty toothless. I kept hoping the story would get better, but it never did. Pass on this. No guilty pleasure here, just an annoying main character you'll want to slap repeatedly.

A priest, an ex-priest, and a vampire huntress meet, okay bad joke lol The beginning of the story was a little confusing and rushed for me. However, once you get further along in the book you get more involved with the story. It is full of suspense.

Review by: Lia Burres on Feb. 25, 2013 :
Full of paranormal events and mystery included into one. Quicksilver has a philosophy to live by: "The only good vampire, is a dead vampire!" Events start awakening Quicksilver's past. She's not about to repeat any of her past mistakes. She has become bent on destroying all of the vampires.
Her secrets are about to catch up to her. Someone begins killing humans and vampires.
Quicksilver is a vampire huntress with deadly silver whips.

This book is full of twists, turns and surprises that you certainly need to read to believe.
There is content and language not meant for under 18 or the faint of heart.
Awesome book for the vampire and paranormal lovers!

A Fall of Silver by Amy Corwin
The Redemption Series Book 2
Allison Bankes is dead and has been for ten years. Quicksilver is alive and well and full of vengeance aimed at one goal, to kill every single vampire. Now somebody has stepped into her path, trying to stop her. The hate and venom within her won’t allow for that. Plus, if she lets go of it she’ll have to face how alone she really is.

Kethan Hilliard made a wrong choice once. For him he was able to have a second chance. Now he wants the vampires to have a second chance to find redemption. If only he can keep the annoyingly beautiful woman out of the way of his negotiations.

A vampire huntress with lethal silver whips and a hate to drive her. An ex-priest wanting to prove no one is beyond redemption. Both have a boat load of secrets they carry with them. The vampires are not sweet or lovable, and they stink. And there are surprise twists and turns around every dark, dank corner. I found this story line to be a unique and refreshing twist of the vampire world. The first book in this series is called Vampire Protector.
