Overview

It's Faythander's legend of King Arthur. And it's not for the faint of heart.

Olive Kennedy, Fairy World MD, isn't ready to go back to work. But when her dragon stepfather shows up on her doorstep with bad news of the world-ending variety, that's exactly what she'll have to do. He wants her to stop the elven queen from obtaining seven weapons of King Arthur fame, and he wants her to break into a dragon's vault to do it.

One problem. Silvestra, the silverwitch of Dragon Spine Mountain, guards the weapons. And she's not willing to give them up. With the help of Kull, her newly reunited, half-crazed Viking boyfriend, she's hopeful they'll stand up against the dragon. Plus, she'll have the help from Kull's warrior princess sister and a professional thief.

But Olive has never had great luck. What starts as a routine quest quickly turns into a life or death fight. And one of her companions won't make it out alive…

About the Author

Tamara Grantham was born and raised in Southeast Texas. She comes from a family of writers. She took her first writing class from her uncle Larry Franklin, who worked as an author and literary agent at the time. In 2013, she signed her first contract with former writing mentor, and New York Times-bestselling author, William Bernhardt, to contribute to his Shine series. The novellas are about young girls with unusual abilities. In November 2014, almost four years to the day that she finished her first book, she signed with Crimson Tree Publishing (the adult imprint of Clean Teen Publishing) for her novel Dreamthief.

While she’s not writing, and sometimes while she is, she raises four (soon to be five!) beautiful children, ages one to ten. She lives in Galveston, Texas with her husband and kids, one cat and one dog. Her husband David is her biggest support. For the past ten years he has been in training to become a surgeon. She frequently picks his brain for the sake of her stories, a habit she hopes he’ll forgive.

I voluntarily received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. I am still amazed by the world Tamara Grantham has created. It seems she has thought of every little detail and her writing brings those details to life through Olive and Kull's adventures. Silverwitch seems to be the fastest paced book in the series to me, at least so far, and the most intense. It seems like every time I read the next book in the Fairy World series, I have a new favorite. They are all just that good and Olive Kennedy's story just keeps getting better and better. Silverwitch is currently my favorite, but I'm sure that will change once I read Deathbringer.

This is fast-paced, magic filled adventure with a heroine who is ready to help where she can. Olive's magic is more unpredictable than usual, but whether she's ready or not, she's pulled into another quest to save two worlds. After receiving a very rare visit from her step-father, she agrees to do what she can to stop the Fairy Queen from trying to take over the magical world. Olive's pretty sure she won't be of much help, but when so much life is on the line, she can't refuse. One of my favorite thing about Olive is her insecurity. She has an immense amount of power-so she's told-but it never works the way it should. Even if she's not as tough as everyone seems to think she is, she won't let them down. She's determined, doesn't always come out on top and struggles every step of the way. In other words, she suffers from the same self-assurance issues as everyone else. This is nonstop action with magic, life threatening situations and more. There's never a boring moment, and just when things seem to calm down, something unexpected happens to keep Olive on her toes. Even though this is the fourth book in the series, the plot still is filled with unexpected twists and turns. There are a few new characters - two of which are so layered and faceted that the line between good and evil becomes hazed. There is romance too, and this book has a little more warming up on that end than the last one or two did. It's still not always sweet and is full of problems, but that matches the rest of the plot nicely. A lot is still in play, and I can't wait to see how Olive tackles the biggest threat yet. I received a complimentary copy from the author and enjoyed the read so much that I wanted to leave my thoughts.

'Silverwitch' kept digging claws into all of the sensitive parts of me, and I enjoyed it. These books make you endure everything Olive is going through, and they feel no qualms about taking your emotions along for the ride. In this one, it introduces new fears to our beloved characters as well as to the readers. Olive's destiny is drawing closer, and everyone is looking to change it. Like its predecessors, 'Silverwitch' pushes Olive's boundaries in exactly the directions she doesn't want to go. She goes anyway, because this is who she is. Savior of Faythander. And she'll even take on a conniving dragon to make sure the deed gets done. If only she could be sure of success...

As with each of the novels in this series, I was eager to dive into Silverwitch, and of course, once again, it didn't disappoint. While each of these novels can be read as a stand alone, once you read one, you'll want to read them all. The beauty of the world evolves on every page and just as with each novel, Ms. Grantham expands Faythander into so much more than you first imagined. This is truly an amazing series that you must read. Along with my favorite characters, new ones add to this story, leaving you rooting for them and also reading along with a fear that they might not survive. The ending both broke my heart and made me cheer. I can't wait to see what's in store for Olive, Kull, and even Heidel.
