Sixteen-year-old Silvermay Hawker feels drawn to the newcomer in her village - a young man of solemn good looks named Tamlyn. But only heartache can come of this, because Tamlyn is devoted to Nerigold and to little Lucien, her son.
So things seem, until the dark forces of Coyle Strongbow come in search of Nerigold′s baby and Silvermay is swept up in the young family′s escape. When Lucien is entrusted to her care, she discovers the startling horror of what he might become, and the truth about Tamlyn, too.
Can Lucien be spared his fate, or is he doomed to become like Coyle? And Tamlyn, can he be trusted, can he be loved and can he love in return? Silvermay′s heart will not give him up, but what happens when devotion becomes a weapon in the hands of the ruthless?
I hadn't remembered what happened here, since I read this last year, but I remember I was really captivated by this book and couldn't wait for more.
The mysteries and the originality of the book drew me in, and I think it would draw you in as well. I reccomend you to read it.
Great book, I personaly like all of James moloney's work.
Silvermay Hawker, a teenage girl who falls in love with a newcomer, Tamlyn Strongbow. Tamlyn is charming and spends his time and devotion, to nerigold, a mother of lucien. Silvermay tries to win his heart, and eventually does. I really enjoyed the way this book was written, but towards the end you feel really sorry for Silvermay, she starts to doubt Tamlyn because of his wyrdborn blood and sort of starts to hate him. and then towards the end, Silvermay is really on her own, just with her little "smiler" and master desser.
In saying that though this was Buitifally written and i cant wait till the next books come out.
I would reccomend it to everyone, and if you "Havent read a good book in a while" Then thats about to change! :)
How good was this book? I can't say how satisfied I am with it, having not read a good book in a long long time.
Filled with a bit of "Legend of the Seeker Style" style, Moloney has created an enjoyable fantasy novel. Characters, such as the brave yet at times girly Silvermay Hawker and the sexy and handsome Tamlyn Strongbow are accepted by readers and can be related to, especially in Silvermay's case in finding true love.
Filled with action, adventure, romance, unexpected turns and clever storytelling, "Silvermay" is a classic fantasy adventure that would be loved by all readers of all ages.
Great book, a fave.
Silvermay Hawker is drawn to the newcomers in town. But Tamlyn is devoted to Nerigold and her baby, Lucien.
Silvermay somehow found herself wrapped up in the young family's escape. Along the way she find the truth about Lucien and the truth about Tamlyn, too.
Also, they come across a minding down, which displays some desturbing pictures of Lucien. Who will he kill? Nerigold didn't believe this, but she died, from Lucien, as Silvermay found out. Silvermay and Tamlyn makes a promise and it is to cure Lucien. To do this though, Silvermay must first believe: that birth isn't destiny and Silvermay must know: that Coyle Strongbow will kill her if Lucien is under Coyle's power.
Will Lucien kill? Will Coyle Strongbow get Lucien? But most of all will Silvermay and Tamlyn be together?
Silvermay by James Maloney is a gripping novel, published in 2011 by Harper Collins.
Silvermay is set in a fictional world, and begins when three strangers, Tamlyn, Nerigold and a new born baby arrive in Silvermay’s village. The arrival of the handsome Tamlyn causes Silvermay to have unwarranted feelings towards him, as her friend Nerigold appears to be ‘with’ him. While Silvermay is struggling with her feelings, wicked people, the cold and unfeeling Wyrdborn, are scouring the land in search of Nerigold’s baby. Silvermay flees her home with Tamlyn and Nerigold to escape from the powerful and callous Wyrdborn, Coyle Strongbow, and search for the truth of what the baby, Lucien, is destined to become. Along the journey, Silvermay discovers a shocking truth about Tamlyn, while Coyle ruthlessly tries to get his hands on Lucien.
I thoroughly enjoyed James Maloney’s book, and found myself captivated by the detailed and exciting plot. The writer wove his words well with imagination into a compelling storyline. I would definitely recommend this book to others, especially teenagers interested in fantasy, adventure, and romance novels, as it smoothly intertwines all three genres together.
While reading this novel, I was constantly reminded of Christopher Paolini’s book Eragon, as it was also well written and thought out. Silvermay is written for teenagers, and is a great read for anyone over the age of about thirteen.
