The finale which will leave you asking for more
Series: Silver Blackthorn
Author: Kerry Wilkinson
Publisher: Pan Macmillan, UK
My ratings: 4 out of 5 stars
Released: 5th May, 2016
A fter being impressed by the first two books in the Silver Blackthorn Trilogy, I was really looking forward the finale of this action packed, thrilling adventure.Read my review and blour tours for Reckoning and Renegade here, here and here.
The events in Renegade had the set up for Resurgence pat down and it was a fast paced adventure. Silver becomes the unlikely hero of these subjugated people while she is internally struggling with her own role in this rebellion. Her life has changed so much and it is evident as we see lots of character development.
What I enjoy most about this series has always been the friendships between the teens who suffered under the deranged king and his castle. Not just the friendships, but the relationships good or bad are nuanced and layered and a treat to read.
Some dystopian authors shy away from brutality and this fails to convince of the unfairness of a cruel regime. But I think this series is not only brutal but it encapsulates the misery and suffering of people so well, that the reader really starts rooting for this rag tag bunch of kids.
Of course, there is a vague love triangle but I was sure from the start, who the eventual winner of Silver’s heart was.
Kerry’s writing has always been spot on and he is quite clever with his plot devices and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I will definitely recommend this series for readers who love dystopia and looking for a fix.
