NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLING AUTHOR ENTRY #9 IN MERCEDES LACKEY'S CELEBRATED SERRATED EDGE URBAN FANTASY SERIES Teenager Staci's father has just remarried and now she finds herself being shunted aside by her new stepmother  Shunted all the way to the run down and dying Maine town of Silence in fact and the custody of her alcoholic mother   It gets worse  Silence seems to be stuck in the proverbial stone age There's no cell phone service except at the very top of a bluff outside of town no internet except dialup and not o When I saw this book available at NetGalley I ran to reuest it Long ago I loved this series and have fond memories of it I had no idea she had a new book out in that world and was shocked to discover that I had missed several books in the middle of the series over the years That wasn't a problem as the book easily stood alone; there were hints at events in earlier books but you could jump in with this one I wouldn't recommend it though Maybe my expectations were too high since I had such fond memories of those first books in the series but this was a let down In fact several times I came close to not finishing but just saying the heck with it This was a bleak book; bleak story bleak setting bleak events The earlier books I had read weren't happy happy joy joy but they had hope and there was light and humor This this was like being in a long dark tunnel with no good way to turn Again it may have been my expectations Someone without my expectations might enjoy it The concept of magically cutting off the town of Silence so it was technologically cut off was interesting; Lackey's typical harsh and dysfunctional family life was at the forefront once again; our elven hero was actually a jackass and that was a shock for me The attitude toward elves in this book was dark distrustful and even hateful It surprised me and I didn't like it Most of the twists I saw coming All around this book just didn't work for me

Silence AUTHOR Mercedes LackNe familiar franchise or business Staci's mom seems to have gotten even worse since the last time Staci lived with her The only bright spots in the whole place are a friendly waitress at the diner and a bookstore where she meets a gaggle of geeks and gamers But all is not as it seems in Silence There are strange things moving beneath the shabby surface terrible plots in play and deadly players in the game and Staci is about to find herself caught up in the middle of it allSERRAted Edge Series Born to Run #1 by Mercedes Lac This book won't win many prizes for original setting it's yet another teenage girl with absentee parent issues who moves to a small town and attracts the attention of a rich and mysterious fellow student The tone is a bit erratic; at parts it's self aware and mocks Twilight like narrative and at others it just toes the line The main character Staci is effectively abandoned by her parents the father manipulated by the fairy tale like manipulative stepmother the mother a hard drinking waitress who's rarely home physically and never present mentally It reminded me a Lackey's earlier work The Lark and the Wren but dialed up to 11 The ending is a little shaggy dog as it is clearly based on a well worn RPG story floating about the Internet view spoilerin which an adventuring party didn't know what a gazebo was and so fought it valiantly hide spoiler
