About this Book:
If the price of safety is slavery, would you bargain your life?
A Bargain in Silver is book one of Josie Jaffrey’s Solis Invicti paranormal romance series, set in a dystopian, post-apocalyptic London.
A deadly infection threatens to wipe out humanity. The only people who can stem its advance are the Silver, a vampiric race who offer a simple exchange: protection in return for blood and subservience. It’s not a deal that Emmy’s willing to make, but as her world burns around her she finds herself in the arms of the enemy and the line between oppressor and saviour begins to blur.
After an attack by the infected, Emmy is rescued by the handsome Drew who introduces her to the world of the Silver. Desperate to escape subjugation and confused by her attraction to him, she gathers what remains of her surrogate family and plans to make a break for freedom.
Now that was fun to read, even though a bit cliche. Like any paranormal novel, there’s the presence of vampires, though they call themselves Silver and are of course superior to humans and not afraid to show it. The same arrogant vampire race but this time there is another threat. A zombie-like race called Weepers that only Silvers can fight. So they offer their protection to humans as long as they become blood slaves. Our protagonist Emmy is caught in the whirlwind as she comes in contact with two powerful Silvers.
So Vampires and a threat to humanity. Check.
Love triangle and a guilty conscience. Check.
Defiance up to a point then submission. Check.
It was an interesting book to read and quite exciting at points, but nothing out of the ordinary.
