The Silvered - Tanya Huff

Start slowly, but then pick-ups midway once the intro is over and the protagonist is off on her journey to becoming a heroine. Some interesting characters in the well-worn trope of civilized werewolves and magicians, though it's a relief to find a traditional fantasy world rather than psuedo-modern urban fantasy. As usual Tanya Huff delivers a competent and enjoyable read.
