Blog Tour: Review of Silver's Chance by Billi Jean

AUTHORS BIO: Billi Jean has been writing since high school when she couldn't wait for Robert Jordon to write his Wheel

of Time series faster. She writes from home in a little two hundred year old farm house in Western Massachusetts where she shares her space with her active children, an old dog, and two lazy cats.

Her first book, Midnight Star, has won numerous awards and was voted Best Book by Long and Short Reviews. Her next installment in the Sisters of the Moon series, Silver's Chance, hit the shelves in August 2011. The next, A Spartan's Kiss will arrive right on Valentine's Day, 2012.

SYNOPSIS: When life throws Samantha a curve ball in the form of an ancient Lykae warlord bent on marking her as his—what's she going to do? Run like hell? Oh, yeah, that so worked the first time around. With Derrick hot after her tail, Samantha discovers being the hunted just might not be as bad as she thought.
Derrick is a warlord hardened by centuries of battle. Now that he's free from years of torment, he discovers his mate. Only his beautiful little half wolf is as determined to deny him, as he is to claim her.

As the battle to keep her safe intensifies, Derrick faces the biggest fight of his life: winning Samantha's heart and keeping alive long enough to claim her.

At first, I thought this was the usual dragging sort of tale about badly constructed characters and a weak plot and the fact that it was 408 pages and in eBook format made me delay reading the book even more. And I regret to have delayed it for as long as I did.

The beginning of the book was capturing and immediately had a series of events that draws you in immediately. The main character Samantha reminded me a lot of Cat from the Night Huntress series and Mac from the Fever series. And that combination is perfect. She also has a mad sense of humor that cracked me up every time! She's even funnier when she's with her best friend, who is also a witch. Samantha is a witch who finds her mate to be a wolf, Derrick, who is so hot and very sexy. He’s been missing since 1810 and Sam frees him from his bounds.

I loved how the love grew between the two. Though I was annoyed at Derrick a little. He was pushy when it came to mating and such. But I guess that's normal when a wolf is imprinted to a particular person. However, the plot and the hot scenes made up for that little creepy characteristic Derrick has.

Silver’s Chance, is a story basically about how Samantha is on a hunt to find her kidnapped sister and in the process she finds Derrick literally screwed up on a door (or was it a wall) by metallic bars. The story was filled with all kinds of supernaturals, the Faye, demons, vampires, wolves, mages, giants, and witches. And each one plays an important role in the book. The book was well written, equally inviting, action-packed, exciting and steamy. Derrick and Samantha are inseparable. I can’t wait to read more from Billi Jean.
