Excellent! Packs a good punch for a novella!

Trinity Blue is an outstanding short story. Usually a short story has to sacrifice something: plot density or character depth or world building. This does not.
The plot is tight and kept you turning the pages [even when it was WAY past time to sleep!]. The characters were engaging, people you'd really like to know. The chemistry between the hero and heroine sizzled.
Jen Cassaday is a lonely woman waiting for her life to begin. As a magical 'late-bloomer' she feels isolated from her family and as a sorcerer-to-be she feels isolated from humanity knowing she can never love someone who she will outlive. Enter Daemon Alexander, enigmatic handyman and drool-worthy hunk with a dangerous edge. If only he wasn't human...
Daemon has taken the job to help Jen restore her home while he attempts to find the evil danger he senses nearby. He tracked a demon to the area and then lost it - when the dismembered body of a woman is found in the nearby woods he knows it's still around. Despite his best efforts he finds himself falling for Jen. If only she wasn't human... The climactic confrontation between the demon, Jen, and Daemon reveals their hidden truths - he's not human [a truly interesting variation on the paranormal 'norm'], she's not human now that her sorcery has kicked in, and they both did a great job of kicking the demon back to hell.
Great paranormal action read with a very satisfying ending. The world Ms. Silver has created for the reader is fascinating-it is loosely related to the Compact of Sorcerers series.
Note: A version of Trinity Blue was published in The Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance. The author states she has 'revised and expanded that story' and it is now a stand alone e-read. It is soon available at multiple sites including Amazon and Smashwords.
