Just weeks before graduating from high school, Grace is running for her life with her magical and mysterious boyfriend, Sebastian, by her side. An ancient magic has been awakened inside of Grace that is powerful, frightening and barely within her control. The Others, who possess their own dangerous magic, are hunting them, and their only hope is for Grace to learn how to harness her incredible powers to stop them. The answers they seek are hidden within a life lived thousands of years ago, shrouded in mystery, magic and deceit. When their past catches up to them, Grace and Sebastian are faced with a truth that shakes the foundation of their relationship, their lives and everything they thought they knew. It is up to Grace to learn to control the Lost Magic, to right the wrongs that have been done, and to discover once and for all, who she really is. (Goodreads Synopsis)

Overall, my feelings towards Silver Dew were similar to Amber Frost: it had some good things going for it but some negatives too. In this second book, there was still some issue with unbelievable dialogue and I felt the pacing was also a little off, with some sections whizzing by and others dragging, but the storyline remained interesting and I liked the introduction of the new characters.

Getting to the end, I was interested to see that it finished in a fairly final way. Sure there are still some elements to take over into book three, but it felt like it could have finished there and I wonder if the third book wasn't planned at the time.

Anyway, I am now beginning the last book and am intrigued to see how the story will finally end for Grace and Sebastian.
