Review The Prisoner of Silverwood Castle, Darke of the Night series by Marie Treanor

Title: The Prisoner of Silverwood Castle 
Author: Marie Treanor
Series: Darke of the Night
Release Date: August 16th 2016


Dead men don’t tell tales. They wail them from the top of the tallest tower.

Lady Guinevere (Guin) Harvey would much rather be writing gothic tales of intrigue and adventure than dancing attendance on her sister, the newly married Duchess of Silberwald. Until they arrive at Silberwald Castle, a place of enchanting perfection—and gothic shadows.

Ghostly groans and clanking chains lead Guin through ancient, misshapen passages to one of the castle’s many mysteries: a cell where the odd but charming Kasimir is kept chained like an animal. He could be a figment of her vivid dreams, the ghost of a dead, mad prince, or just a political prisoner no one wants to talk about.

Desperate to discover what beast is howling such soul-chilling cries, Guin summons the medium Barbara Darke. But by the time Barbara arrives, Guin can no longer distinguish dream from reality, friend from enemy. Even with all Barbara’s unique talents, they have to face new dangers before they finally discover the terrifying truth of Silberwald Castle.

Review by Iza

I fell in love with this series from the first book. Ms. Treanor knows how to pull you in with a tale of mystery and dark romance.
This one can be read as a standalone, even though you'll encounter the hero and heroine from the first book. 
It all starts with Lady Guinevere having to go with her newly wedded sister, to stay with her, until she gets used to her new family. But Guin both falls in love with the castle - which gives her all kinds of ideas for the book she wants to write - and scares her, because she's staying in the part of the castle that isn't being used and where she hears weird noises. Of course that she goes to investigate, to see what happens and that's when she meets our hero/ anti-hero, Kasimir. Except... he's not alive. 
Or is he?
Ms. Treanor had me second-guessing everything and sitting on the edge of the chair, waiting to see what happens. Who's the bad guy? Who's the good guy? Just when you think you have it all figured out, she throws in a twist you didn't see coming, making you, once again, think about who, what, where and how. 
I loved this book and I honestly can't wait to read more in this series. I loved the small but important part the previous book's main characters played.
4.5 stars and I want to thank the author for the copy given in exchange for my honest review. It was my pleasure and I can't wait for more!
