Reviews: Sort by: ***** September 10, 2011 by Echo-g "Intriguing! The Dawn of Silva takes you through a twisted ride of love and human relationships. The humorous dichotomy between the east and west coast ways of life entertained me throughout the book. The story portrays the many levels of love with fascinating characters and situations. Great read, had to finish it in one sitting to find out what the end of the story would hold!" **** Reviewed by Kam Aures for Rebecca’s Reads (08/11) " . . . I enjoyed watching the transformations of the characters in the book and the relationships that were established. The ending of “The Dawn of Silva” left an opening for a follow-up novel which I believe is in the works. It will be interesting to see how the relationships of the characters progress in the future books in the series. **** Norm Goldman, B.A. LL.L, is the Publisher & Editor of Bookpleasures. He is also a top 500 Amazon reviewer. "Olivia Wilde´s emotionally involved novel, The Dawn of Silva . . . Wilde has crafted an honest look at human options, particularly complex love relationships. It definitely is a good first attempt at a romance novel, narrated with a great deal of sincerity and tenderness. I look forward to reading more from Olivia Wilde." ***** Delightful read!, July 26, 2011 By halebopp "There´s a lot going on in this book....characters you get to know, obsession, unrequited love, lost and found love and some introspection into what direction our lives are going versus where we want them to go. This is definitely one I´ll read again..." ***** Vivid, July 24, 2011 By Klockhamer "I don´t usually read this type of book but it made me want to keep turning pages. Vivid. After finishing it I had the same feeling of walking out of a movie theater and needing a few minutes to get my head back into reality. Cool trip" ***** TeeZeeCat "Absolutely delicious! Jump into a cozy chair and enjoy the adventure....this book takes you right along the journey, into the lives of each character and into their innermost feelings. Absolutely delicious love scenes which are LOVE SCENES not just hook-ups. You feel the characters pain, highs and lows. Wilde is good at keeping you turning the pages." ***** saffire "Highly Recommended Wow! Good read! Ashlyn is what every woman wants to be on the outside and already is on the inside." ***** "This book is written from the heart and inevitably will find its way into the reader’s heart as well. The characters will reach out from the pages and include the reader in their lives, while keeping them in a state of wonder ..." Jana Tajzler, Slovakia ***** "Captivating . . .

Daughter of the war god Ares, Kyra had been born into darkness—a darkness she'd vowed to annihilate. Just as she'd destroy the notorious Greek arms dealer Marco Kaisiris for feeding the bloodlust she despised. She'd use her nymph's carnal powers to seduce him, then slay him. But Kyra wasn't prepared for Marco's secret weapon. For millennia Kyra had avoided mortal men, but she couldn't resist Marco's magnetism, his raw sexuality. Time and again his sculpted body took her to heights to which only the gods soared. That he was a shape-shifting hydra she could forgive, but not his one fatal flaw—his poisoned blood could kill her. Kyra had fallen for the only being who could destroy her…. Yet how could she spend eternity without him?

But every heated touch and burning kiss will edge them closer to destruction—and a soul-shattering test of love….
