Just weeks before graduating from high school, Grace is running for her life with her magical and mysterious boyfriend, Sebastian, by her side. An ancient magic has been awakened inside of Grace that is powerful, frightening and barely within her control. The Others, who possess their own dangerous magic, are hunting them, and their only hope is for Grace to learn how to harness her incredible powers to stop them. The answers they seek are hidden within a life lived thousands of years ago, shrouded in mystery, magic and deceit. When their past catches up to them, Grace and Sebastian are faced with a truth that shakes the foundation of their relationship, their lives and everything they thought they knew. It is up to Grace to learn to control the Lost Magic, to right the wrongs that have been done, and to discover once and for all, who she really is.
If readers didn't get enough of Grace Lynn and Sebastian in Amber Frost, worry not, because Silver Dew is here, and the story of these two continues. On the run from those that want to hurt them, this story is powerful and intense.
There was a time Grace Stevenson was a normal teenager. She went to school, had her friends, dated. Who would have though in just a span of a few months that she'd be deeply in love with a mysterious boy and now fleeing her home to be safe? Grace is learning to embrace the things that are deep within her. She faces situations that seem to make her stronger. There is a darkness that wants to overtake this young girl, it it will take strength and wits to beat it all.
Sebastian is still a mystery just like before, but readers slowly learn more about this character. It's time Sebastian faces his past, his memories, and the people that were in his life. His love for Grace is intense. He's just as strong as a hero as Grace is the heroine.
This sequel is so much more action packed than Amber Frost. For those that like to read series in order, I'd advise to read Amber Frost first, so you're clued into what's going on. There you'll find the story of the couple's beginning and how things came to be in this story. There are a few scenes that are mature content, this is by far not a light read. It has its dark moments, but nothing too over the top. Overall, I enjoyed it and was glad to know more about Grace and especially Sebastian.
If you enjoy paranormal young adult with plenty of action and intrigue, add Silver Dew to your reading lists. If you've read Amber Frost, this exciting installment has the potential to keep you up in to the late hours of the night, or keep you distracted from other duties during the day. This book is definitely an attention grabber...and keeper.
