Lady Silver is the first book in the Warlock Chronicles by Bobbie R. Byrd. Set in the future where humans and warlocks despise each other, Admiral Devon Bastion is someone who follows the rules to a T. Tasked to exact punishment on the inhabitants of a certain planet, Devon finds a spaceship that enters an area it shouldn’t be anywhere near. Inside he finds the enigmatic warlock Bryanna and her android T’Laan. Bryanna is untrained yet very powerful. Her only goal is to live her life on her terms and stay away from people in general. However, things change when they discover that the world as they know it is about to end if they don’t do something. Bryanna and Devon need to work together if they don’t want the galaxy to die. But before that, Devon needs to work on his temper, Bryanna needs to take control of her powers, and the two of them have to learn to get along.
Incredible and richly detailed, Bobbie R. Byrd has done a fantastic job creating believable characters. Bryanna is simple in her approach, yet there is a lot of room to grow. At the beginning of the novel, Bryanna is a little scared, a little angry, and ready to learn what she can about her powers. Devon, on the other hand, knows exactly who he is and what he needs to do. He is a little hard on Bryanna, but he comes around in due time. The real hero of the story for me was T’Laan. The android is fiercely loyal and intelligent enough to make the reader pause and pay attention. The dialogue styles are unique to each character, the story’s development is amazing, and the world-building is imaginative yet realistic at the same time! Lady Silver is highly recommended!
