    Wonderfully dark story addition to the Rise of Unseelie series.

    Malcolm, a young homeless (runaway) fey, found the Fairy Circle shop by the strong fey smell. A fey hangout, maybe? Malcolm is looking to find out about fey, a book on his kind. As he scans the shelves at the shop he see they have one. The Shop owner, Flora, sees and approaches Malcolm, finds what he is looking for, and gives him directions to find Rand. Going in search of things Malcolm has never learned about may not end in the best of cercumstances for him... Donovan is still looking for the sidhe, and exiles that now could be in grave danger since the Mound fell.

    I don't know what it is, but this one I think is my favorite thus far. Maybe it's the understood, thin connection to London's story in Addicted that helps that feeling. But I like Malcolm's story. Unfortunately for Malcolm, it's not the happiest of stories but I think that's why I like it. There is a dark side here.

    Malcolm physically struggles, greatly, here. He is a nieve fey, not knowing what he is or his powers and he is forced to learn. I felt bad for Malcolm, but Malcolm is written as a strong minded character as well.

    I do like the Unseelie story side, very much. And this one is my favorite yet. I look forward to more on this side of things. And I'm still curious about surviving with out the Mounds, and how the exiles have managed to do so for so long.

    Great Tortured Hero!

    Sometimes I read a book and when I'm finished I find myself wanting more. Much more. Scars of Silver is one of those books that I didn't want to see end and I now can't wait to read more in this storyline that S. A. Archer has created of the Sidhe and its Seelie and Unseelie cast of characters. This is the second book in the Rise of the Unseelie Storyline.

    Malcolm was a rather sheltered sixteen year old, growing up on a farm in Ireland with his parents and little sister Regan. His life consists of doing chores and never being allowed to do the things that most teenagers his age are allowed to do, such as attend school or make friends. He receives the shock of his life when during an argument with his father Seamus, he is told in no uncertain terms that he is not human; that he as well as his entire family are Sidhe. Feeling like his family has lied to him his entire young life, he runs away.

    Desperately trying to learn what it means to be Sidhe will lead to some dangerous consequences for Malcolm. He has no one that can explain to him his heritage or what it means to be fey, but with the typical hubris of youth, he is determined to find out. Unfortunately, he learns the hard way, never trust a stranger and quickly finds himself betrayed, taken prisoner by a Changeling and in very real danger. Out of all the stories I've read so far, this one is the most heartrending and emotionally charged. The scenes where Malcolm learns about the Touch, the very unique ability all Sidhe have, will truly break your heart.

    Malcolm's character is wonderfully complex and he has become my favorite character of the storylines so far. He is truly a tortured hero both literally and figuratively which is exciting because it will be interesting to see how he copes in later stories. I highly encourage you to check out the other books as they all intertwine together. This book had many twists and turns and of course now I'm anxious to see what Malcolm's future holds as he continues to discover himself as an Unseelie Sidhe!
