Synopsis:

Dromiskin, Ireland. 925 A.D.

Eira has no greater desire than to see her life returned to what it once was—before her older brother Kevin's sudden disappearance four years earlier. But the simple life she hoped for seems unattainable; on the contrary, her life is about to get all the more complicated.
When she suddenly finds herself and Willem, her twin brother, taken captive by someone who claims to be Kevin’s enemy, things go from bad to worse. It soon becomes clear that she and Willem are to become bait in a trap set for Kevin, and Eira knows she must try to warn him. But how, when she herself is a captive?
As mysteries of the past are unveiled, and loyalties are revealed, Eira realizes how precious her friends truly are. And when mortal danger threatens those nearest to her, will she be able to trust God with the lives of her friends and family?

Today I've got a review of The Silent Blade by Jesseca Wheaton! You can add the book on Goodreads, here, and find the author here.


When I saw an open invitation to advance read for The Silent Blade I was super excited. I had followed the author’s blog for a while and already loved her writing style. This was even better than I expected. 
I fell in love with the characters, and I loved seeing them progress 
The main girl captured my heart very quickly into the book. She’s an ordinary girl who struggles with ordinary problems which make her very relatable. She’s not gifted in many things girls are ‘supposed’ to be, like cooking and dancing and the like, but she’s still very feminine.
Her brothers were pretty awesome, just saying. Kevin is like the ultimate older brother. 
Casimer was awesome, he’s protective and loving, and you just can’t help but love him.
I will say though, there was one thing that bugged me about this book. At one point a character gets mistreated by a bad guy, and when their rescued, they just say “don’t be mad at him, I’ve forgiven him.” And I think what the author was trying to do was build a forgiveness message up in the book, but what it made it sound like was that the good character was unrealistic. 
But I really loved the book and I hope to read many more of this authors books as she publishes them.

*I was given this book by the author in exchange for my honest review. I was under no obligation to give a positive review.
