Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs is as good as I hoped it would be.
It's a novel about loyalty--complications, conflict, compassion, hope.
I don't want to mention any spoilers, but a couple of books ago the series shook me. With Silver Borne I'm back enjoying the paranormal world Briggs has created--vivid and coherent. The characters are strong, real enough to walk off the page, and they are consistent across the series with believable personal journeys.
