"Humans, werewolves and vampires! OH MY!"
Sion Baptiste is a vampire who can walk during the day.
His father has sent him to hire Samantha, a bodyguard,
under the pretense of protecting the family against an
unknown enemy, most likely werewolves. Both are in the
dark regarding his true purpose - creating a master race
of vampires that will be able to once and for all destroy
Disbelieving that she is the key to the Master race, and
unwilling to be a pawn, Samantha becomes the hunted. When
the vampires she has vowed to kill capture her, Samantha
escapes only to get kidnapped by werewolves. Finding
herself in a battle for her own life, she quickly
discovers that the only way to save herself is to actually
unite both factions to fight an even greater enemy!
Tamara Gray has written a very fast paced novel that kept
me reading as quickly as possible. Even though Samantha
looses more blood than any one person should be allowed to
loose (and not die or turn into a vampire), and it didn't
make since that a master vampire would hire a mortal body
guard -- which she herself was suspicious of - I LOVED
THE SILVER FANG quite honestly is just amazing. The story
is told in first person from Samantha's perspective (which
was very quickly forgotten) and reads like a movie script.
Fans of Wesley Snipes 'Blade' series and the
movie 'Underworld' would really like this book as it
reminded me of these movies. However, THE SILVER FANG,
make no mistake, is its own story.
The story starts with the ending battle and then you find
out what happened leading Samantha into a blood bath with
the werewolves. It was actually masterfully written
because as a reader I had two totally different feelings
reading the same section.
Samantha is a strong woman. Stronger than most men she
knows. I really liked her personality. Sion Baptiste, I
greatly under estimated because at first I just found him
exceedingly annoying. In the end, I really think get got
the short end of the stick, even though he technically
gets the girl...you will have to read the story to find
out what I mean here!
I was really frustrated with the ending because while it
came to a satisfactory conclusion, you know there is more
following because to many items haven't been resolved. So
this will be another series on my auto-buy/must read list.
I was so impressed with Tamara Gray's writing style; I
can't believe this is her first novel.
Absolutely phenomenal! Buy the book or get the download,
if you are a fan of vampires or werewolves it won't
matter, you won't be disappointed with THE SILVER FANG!
