Summary: 2342 CE

Dishonorably discharged from the Hunter Division and banished for crimes she did not commit, Silver struggles to come to terms with her new prison-like surroundings: a segregated area of the city called the Fringe District, populated by murderers, thieves and rapists.

Starving, and desperate for money, she reluctantly accepts the Police Division's invitation to enroll in a covert Bounty Hunter program: an initiative devised to infiltrate the criminal underworld of the Fringers, and to force the very worst warrant dodging law-breakers to meet their fate--death.

Unfortunately, Silver doesn't realize that the Police Division is about to up the ante. They need more than little snippets of information and arrests--they need someone to pull the trigger. They need an executioner.

SILVER: Acheron is the first book (a 40,000 word novella) in a 10-book series featuring the character of Ella 'Silver' Cross. Set more than 300yrs in the future, the Silver Series takes place in a post-apocalyptic, dystopian world where humans are a species on the brink of extinction. No longer at the top of the food chain, humans are preyed upon by the Chimera--genetic mutants that outnumber humankind 25:1.

***Content advisory: Contains graphic language and violence.***

Short Review:

I really liked the world of SILVER: Acheron. It's very interesting, with the society setup and how it shows the differences in life between those in the Sentinel District and the Fringe District. I was very intrigued by Alice. Who is she? What is she? And Silver is a heroine that I really liked. She's tough, but she's also thrust into circumstances that begin chipping away at her and we see a fragility to her. This is a great read and I can't wait to read the next book.
