With the Pack off defending the border, it falls to Mirian Maylin and Tomas Hagen—she a low-level mage, he younger brother to the Pack-leader—to save them. Together the two set out on the kidnappers’ trail, racing into the heart of enemy territory. But with every step the odds against their survival, let alone their success, grow steeper…

Praise

“Huff delves into an overwhelming yet improbably seamless mix of steampunk, epic fantasy, and paranormal romance…. Huff fans who prefer her second-world fantasy tales (e.g., the Quarters series) will be pleased by this return to the form.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“The way that Huff tied all of the strings together from this epic journey was masterful. She paid equal attention to her characters as she did her world-building, resulting in a seamless whole. The melding of science, magic, era-specific technology, superstition, war and how ordinary people can do extraordinary things was captivating.”—The Book Pushers
 
“[Huff] knows not only how to world build, but how to build magic systems and do phenomenal characterizations. Her experience shows on every page of The Silvered.… Books this good don’t come along that often. The Silvered is a well-planned, well executed adventure tale. I loved it. Completely.”—The Ranting Dragon
 
The Silvered paints a fascinating society based on the symbiosis of mage and wolf-pack, each group partnering and tempering the other.”—San Francisco Book Review
 

“It all adds up to a fun, old-fashioned adventure made new with an interesting magic system.”—Locus
