- Silver Thaw
on Jan. 21, 2011
Silver Thaw, a novella, by Amy Rose Davis, is one of those wonderful pieces of fiction that comes at you out of the blue. I didn’t have a clue as to plot or setting, only that it was fantasy. Well, change fantasy to a fantastic read and you have it. I was hooked in the first paragraph. The world Ms. Davis creates incorporates echoes of myth and history into an absorbing and exciting narrative. Metaphor, syntax, language, and style are woven together so skillfully that an entire world arises within your imagination. The hint of familiarity is the familiarity that seizes one when a master storyteller begins, “Once upon a time.” But her characters are not mere clichés. They make you privy to their conflicts, desires, and dilemmas. The story is told through four major characters, and uses a seasonal device to move the plot forward. It begins in Winter and ends in Autumn. The mystery of a strange singing maiden and the reason she wears a silver collar and wrist chains keep the pages turning. This is a must read for anyone who enjoys legend, myth, or fantasy. Now I simply must read her next book, Ravenmarked.

I loved this book. The plight of the young hero, Cody Everett, grabbed me from the beginning. A well written growing up story set in the world of stock car racing,the plot keeps you on the edge of your seat even while clever, wisecracking Cody can make you laugh out loud.
