“There’s a humble blessing to being ignorant of things we don’t understand.”
Hello, my bookish friends. I hope you’re doing amazing. I have great news for today. I’ve been selected as an official reviewer for Oftomes. They sent me a free copy of Trapped In silver in exchange for my honest review. It took me four days to finish the book, but it’s really not that long, and it’s so gripping. Without further ado, let’s review this book!
This book follows the story of Ava, who lives in a small town called Wetherdon. Her father left a long time ago, and ever since then, she has been responsible for taking care of her foster brother Roan, and their farm. Her life is not easy as it seems, because sometimes, she pretends to be a boy, in order to sell their farm products in town, and protect herself from dangerous people. One day, she goes to a festival in town with her friend, but something unexpected happens. She is hunted by a group of animalistic men called The Berserkers, who want to kill her. Later on, she manages to escape from them. When she finds out that her brother is missing, she makes it her mission to look for him. However, in a strange land full of monstrous creatures, she is keen on understanding everything, including the coming war. And along the way, she will discover the truth of who she is.
This book exceeded my expectations! The world building is magical, dark and mysterious. I was hooked up from the first page. The writing style is so captivating, the story is fast paced, and it’s told through Ava and Ethan’s point of view. I loved how with every page, we learn more about Ava, her parents, and her foster brother Roan. My favorite thing about this book is the fact that the main character is a Female! Not only that! She is self reliant, courageous, strong, and she doesn’t take crap from anyone. And on top of all that, she really has a good sense of humor. Even though she makes wrong decisions sometimes, I still admire her personality. Because, you know, nobody is perfect, and she’s the perfect example of that. I also think that her character is relatable, because when people have good intentions and they plan on doing the right thing, sometimes they make the wrong decision, and that doesn’t make them bad people. It’s just that’s how life is, you have to make mistakes to learn from them. When it comes to Ava’s relationship with her family, she’s so protective of them and she wouldn’t allow anyone to hurt them. I also like how when Ava met Ethan, she didn’t fall in love with him immediately. Throughout the story, they were getting to know each other, and talking about personal things, which I really liked. The only thing that I wanted to know more about, was Ava’s locket. I kind of have my own theories about it, but I hope the next book will explain to us the purpose behind it. I really wanted to read from Roan’s point of view, because it would’ve been interesting to know how he feels about being a Berserker. Also, the plot twist in the last pages was so shocking! I didn’t see that coming! To wrap up my review, I really enjoyed reading Trapped In Silver, and it was such a page turner! It also has The Beauty And The Beast vibes, which is amazing! It’s full of twists, and unexpected moments. If you’re a fantasy lover, then I really recommend this one for you.
