The Silvered

The Empire has declared war on the small, were-ruled kingdom of Aydori, capturing five women of the Mage-Pack, including the wife of the were Pack-leader. 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…


“Huff delves into an overwhelming yet improbably seamless mix of steampunk, epic fantasy, and paranormal romance to launch a new series […] 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… Once again Huff succeeded in making the world around me vanish for several hours. I give THE SILVERED an A+.”

The Book Pushers

Night Owl Reviews

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


“THE SILVERED by Tanya Huff is a great example of the literary treasures waiting to be discovered by fantasy lovers on their shelves.”

“Huff is one of the best story tellers I’ve ever come across. Aside from her ability to create characters and intricate, but understandable, plots, she also has a knack for inventing new and intriguing forms of magic […] Tanya Huff has always shown a flair for making the fantastic realistic and believable and THE SILVERED is no exception.”

Seattle Pi

“THE SILVERED is very detailed and moves with a good pace from the very beginning […] I was most impressed by the way she found to portray the horrors of war realistically […] One of the best books I have read in 2013.”

Fantasy Book Review

“Books this good don’t come along that often. THE SILVERED is a well-planned, well executed adventure tale. I loved it. Completely. I can’t think of a single reason why you shouldn’t or even might not want toread this book.”

The Ranting Dragon

“There’s a lot to like in this novel; strong well-realized characters, believable conflict, but most of all for me it was Huff’s incredible world-building […] Huff has crafted such a logical and well-rounded pack dynamic for her werewolves that it seems the only way it could have existed.”


“A powerfully emotional story that draws you in and doesn’t let you go. It’s perfectly balanced with scenes that are heartbreaking, triumphant, brutal, and occasionally humorous […] THE SILVERED was everything that I enjoy in a fantasy novel. This is now one of my top reads of 2012.”

Addicted 2 Heroines

“This book is a brilliant example of old school high fantasy adventure […] with a fully realized world, detailed yet never overwhelming, and a lean, mean narrative focused on two youngsters venturing deep behind enemy lines on a rescue mission. And man oh man did I love it.”

Book Yurt

“An exciting romantic quest fantasy […] fans will enjoy the trek of the werewolf and the mage into the heart of the enemy.”

Genre Go Round Reviews

“Tanya Huff is one of those rare authors that seems to be at home in pretty much any genre […] she is one of the best writers around at world creation and this one feels so vibrant and alive that it makes the characters feel so realistic that you can’t help but get emotionally involved in their lives and the things that happen to them.”

Curiosity of a Social Misfit

“Tanya Huff effortlessly masters telling the story from multiple points of view, pulling the threads together with just the right amount of tension and making me care about each of the characters the story is told through. The world-building is first-rate, crammed with original ideas but never pushing so far into the foreground that the world eclipses the people who live in it.”

Mike Finn’s Fiction

“Tanya Huff is a long-time favorite read of mine, and THE SILVERED is an amazing book […] Unexpected twists and turns abound. I loved this book.”

Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times Best-Selling Author

“A fantastic book […] strong solid fantasy. Not urban fantasy, really core original high fantasy but with shapeshifting characters. Unexpectedly fantastic. I was really happy to find that one.”
