`The Double-Edged Sword' is the first book in Sarah Silverwood's Young Adult series, `The Nowhere Chronicles'.

Our hero is Finmere Tingewick Smith. Or `Fin' as he is to be known. Fin has an interesting story to go with his interesting name. Abandoned on the steps of London's Old Bailey, he was a baby wrapped in a blanket and with nothing but a man's ring for identification. Fin was taken in and raised by Judge Brown, and mysteriously schooled at two very different institutions. . . one school in London as we know it, and the other school in `Somewhere' London, in the world of Nowhere. When Judge Brown is murdered Fin's duality throws him into danger and chaos. . . when the Knights of Nowhere, led by St John Golden, try to take control of all parallel worlds Fin must choose where to take a stand.

Sarah Silverwood is actually the penname of Sarah Pinborough, who also writes `The Dog-Faced Gods' trilogy of post financial-apocalyptic crime fiction. I really enjoyed first book, `A Matter of Blood', so I was intrigued to read Pinborough writing YA as Silverwood. And I wasn't disappointed. . .

`The Double-Edged Sword' is Young Adult Urban Fantasy. And when I say `urban fantasy' I mean the book is luxuriating in UF conventions. The book is a wonderful blend and balance of fantasy and city, set in London. . . or at least, a parallel `Nowhere' version of the London we know. Silverwood's London is a place of fantastical steampunk proportions, an amalgamation of magic and era that blends into a wonderful character unto itself. The `Nowhere' concept reminded me of Ilona Andrews's `The Edge' for the warped city reality and is a wonderful backdrop for the epic battles that takes place within its realm.

Fin is the stand-out character. I love it when YA authors write young heroic characters - when they let their characters wade into danger, stand up for themselves and prove their worth. Silverwood has written such a character in Fin. Expect to be wowed by his swordplay, stiff upper lip and charisma. He is sixteen, but you must remember that YA readers read `up' so sometimes he comes across a little younger. Regardless, he's a fine protagonist to go on this (long) journey with. I look forward to following his adventures in upcoming books.

The bad-guy fell a bit short. St John Golden is a dark Knight who is determined to take control of all parallel worlds. He's a bit of a cardboard cut-out villain - but even though he was a little obvious, he was still fun to read and despise. And his being polar-opposite to Fin made for fun good vs. evil power-playing.

There is a cliff-hanger ending. . . there has to be, since this is the first of (at least) three books. Not to give anything away. . . but the ending isn't so frustrating that *nothing* is resolved, nor is it so neatly wrapped that you're not left salivating for the next instalment. Silverwood writes a nice balance, at once satiating reader's curiosity while also piquing it.

Next book is `The Traitor's Gate' and is due for an April 2011 release and I will definitely be reading it.

I was delighted and excited by every page of The Double Edged Sword. I've rarely found a book that captures being a 16 year old boy very well. The confusion, the ambition, the hormones -- it's like siphoning whiskey and Red Bull on alternating hours. But Sarah Silverwood has captured the essence of teen boys' Innocence-Imbalance better than anyone I've ever read and plopped them into one hell of a yarn.

The book description covers the plot that well enough. But I can say that the story is very well crafted, with only a slight feeling of being rushed near the conclusion (though that may have been me resisting the inevitable end). The characters are all fascinating and diverse. This is part one of a three book series and I can feel the pressure building. Someone's going to die and I ain't going to like it!

The Double Edged Sword is one of those books that I could have read in two days, but I drew it out a few more just so I could be in the fascinating world a little longer.

I found Sarah Silverwood through Twitter (@SarahPinborough)and was so enthralled by her constant humor, even when not-happy-in-the-least, that I had to give her more than 140 characters to speak. I'm glad I did. Twitter tends to be a hype machine, where you're pulled in a million directions by a million unique voices selling a trillion crappy things, but Silverwood has the stuff. If you're in the US you'll have to luck upon the book in a local store, special order it or order online and wait 7 years or so. But it's worth it.(
