Silver In The Mist
By Emily Victoria
November 1, 2022
Silver in the Mist by Emily Victoria is a YA fantasy featuring asexual representation that follows a palace spy sent to infiltrate a neighboring kingdom in hopes of returning magic to her dying land.
Eight years ago, everything changed for Devlin: Her country was attacked. Her father was killed. And her mother became the Whisperer of Aris, the head of the spies, retreating into her position away from everyone… even her daughter.
Joining the spy ranks herself, Dev sees her mother only when receiving assignments. She wants more, but she understands the peril their country, Aris, is in.
The malevolent magic force of The Mists is swallowing Aris’s edges, their country is vulnerable to another attack from their wealthier neighbor, and the magic casters who protect them from both are burning out.
Dev has known strength and survival her whole life, but with a dangerous new assignment of infiltrating the royal court of their neighbor country Cerena to steal the magic they need, she learns that not all that glitters is weak. And not all stories are true.
I really, really enjoyed this book. I was a bit put off by the overuse of the word “filagree” in the beginning. In one paragraph it was used three times, and over 230 times throughout the book. However, as the story progressed, I found that it didn’t really matter because the story was amazing.Both Devlin & Alyse are extremely different, yet at the same time trying to find themselves. Watching them grow was wonderful. Lochlan, a side character was fun and spunky. The found family aspect was endearing. The story itself flowed steadily with phenomenal world building. The plot was definitely fun and different. Overall, I thought it was a great read and will recommend!
