        I was born in Burnley, Lancs England and lived not too far from Pendle Hill the haunt of witches and all manner of strangeness This may have had an effect on my imagination.My father was a painter and teacher and my mother was a teacher too Both were Welsh and this has probably had an impact on my imagination too The whole family headed for Wales every holiday so that even now Wales is inextricably linked with long car journeys, holidays, family and general happiness.I still support Wales rather than England in most things, particularly rugby, much to my husband s annoyance I have one sister a very good painter , one husband, four children, one mad dog, a bearded dragon and eight nieces and nephews I live in South West London.I believe passionately that education is a good thing and just wish that mine made impact on my thinking I went to Edge End High School then Nelson and Colne Sixth Form College, both in Lancashire After an uneventful gap year trying and failing to get to grips with accountancy, retail the Co op bra department and pharmaceuticals the pharmacy at Burnley General Hospital, I went to New College, Oxford to read Philosophy and Theology and then to King s College, Cambridge to learn how to be a teacher I taught briefly before going back to college this time to Manchester Business School to get an MBA After that I worked for an oil company as a kind of all purpose executive person, but left before I learnt anything that might have been useful either to the company or to me.When I was seven I knew exactly what I wanted to be but I forgot all about it until some time after I had my second baby when I suddenly remembered that I had always wanted to be a writer I was lucky enough to be on a corporate career break at the time and my broken career never got mended Writing is the best job I ve ever had N M Browne was born in the North of England to Welsh parents This background inspired a fascination with all things Celtic and an interest in how earlier societies survived the bleakness of a northern winter Ms Browne lives in London, England and is the author of Hunted Bloomsbury 2002.

    1. I'll be honest it's more like a 3.5 (the ending drags it down a bit). This was one of those books that I bought for the cover. The narrative is a bit uneven over all but still I enjoyed it.There are several point of view characters but most of the story is told from Tommo's point of view. Tommo is a young man of indeterminate age (mid-teens) who has been a slave to the spell grinders who carve spellstones for use by the Protectorate, Fallon. Tommo, like most of the spell grinders, is sick from t [...]


    2. A YA book, Silverboy delivers on magical weirdness and an intriguing plot. The title character, Tommo, escaped from the life of being an apprentice to a spellgrinder, a job which leads to death. Most apprentices only live a short time after becoming apprentices - for some reason the spellstones poison those who grind them, giving them what is commonly known as 'the quivers', which eventually takes over everything, and the apprentices aren't even able to eat any more, as they can't hold or even c [...]


    3. Tommo desperately wants to escape his fate has an apprentice spellstone grinder, a magical job that makes him not only physically sick with “the quivers” but also turns his skin a shiny-silver. Apprentices aren’t allowed to simply stop working the jobs to which they are assigned in the Protectorate; however, after he risks his life and claims sanctuary in the name of Gildea, High Priest of the Inward Power, he is given eight days to leave the land (though this is an impossible task) or he [...]


    4. I'm not gonna lie: I really just checked this out for the cover. I mean, look at it! It looks so cool! What I didn't expect was to like it so darn much. Fun, believable, occasionally super sad, I loved this ride. Whether I'd read it again, I dunno. I loved Akenna, Tonno, and pretty much all the adults (or loved to hate them), which is rare because usually someone is a farce, which I hate. ***1/2


    5. Very unique and creative ideas! The world was very rich and thought-out. What bothered me was that none of the characters were very proactive. They were all kind of pushed together into their fate. The main character was even unconscious during the climax! Had a lot of potential, but wasn't put together very well.


    6. This book dragged me into the story and along for the ride. I loved the story and how intense parts got. This is a book that i would read over and over. I recommend it for anyone how has time to drive into a story and does not want to put it down until the story is done. I wanted the book to continue longer and was sad when it was over and because there is not a second.


    7. A meaty, satisfying story. Mostly I love the word ensorcellment. Sophisticated characters and enough ominous doom to be enjoyable for a quick read for adults. I'd like to see these characters continue into other adventures.


    8. I enjoyed the story but felt like there were a lot of things that could have been better explainedke the use of their God's names was confusing to me and the power they talked about wasn't well explained either.


    9. Tommo escaped from his life being a spellgrinder , which is a job which leads to death , and he only lives a short time , i didnt understans most of this book but thats a short summary of what I see its about


    10. Lots of twists and turns. Definitely not normal. I wasn't sure if I liked it at first, but by the end of the book I was impressed. I just wish the whole book had been that way. So if you like weird and magic, then go ahead and read this book.


    11. Was filling my time when I was out of books with something I got for my son to read. It is probably a good read for an 11 year old, but I was happy when I got a book of my own.



    12. 3.5 stars for a well-crafted, creative world with sorcery, political intrigue, and two endearing protagonists. Recommended.




    13. The book was a bit hard to follow for the first while, the action was so-so, and the ending left much to be desired



    14. I liked it but I felt the characters Fallon, Gildea, Vevenna, and Vevenna's father had little backstory. It was well written, and overall an enjoyable read.
