Follow New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop to a “stunningly original”(Kirkus Reviews) world of magic and political unrest—where the only chance at peace requires a deadly price—in the third Novel of the Others.
The Others freed the blood prophets to protect them from exploitation, but their actions had dire consequences. Now the fragile seers are in greater danger than ever before. In desperate need of answers, Simon Wolfgard, a shape-shifter leader among the Others, has no choice but to enlist blood prophet Meg Corbyn’s help, regardless of the risks she faces by aiding him.
Meg knows each slice of her blade tempts death. But Others and humans alike need answers, and her visions may be Simon’s only hope of ending the conflict.
For the shadows of war are deepening across the Atlantik, and the battle is threatening to break right on Meg and Simon’s doorstep...
Dare I say it?! Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop was better than Murder of Crows. Hide the children! Or, should I say it was as good but in so many different ways? I think I’ll say both.
If I had to narrow down one of the main factors that made Vision in Silver so great I would have to point to three characters; Meg, Simon, and Grandfather Erebus. All three, whether in conjecture with each other or individually kept me so entranced with the story that I think I was becoming sick because I couldn’t function without reading Vision in Silver. What kind of magic is that?!
Remember back when I said in my review of Murder of Crows that I underestimated the stupidity of the humans? (If not, go here so that we’re on the same page). Well, I did it again…sigh
Being held captive within Lakeside because of their stupidity didn’t help them in choosing to heed the warning. No, they then chose to start murdering crows which led to assassinations and land evictions. Again, one would think a lightbulb would ding above their heads, but nope. Now, they’ve killed someone close to the human pack (as Simon likes to call them) of the Lakeside Courtyard, and attempted to kill a child, and got it in their head that they’ll start stealing food that will eventually lead to starvation for other humans.
Warnings after warnings these so called ‘Humans First and Last’ congregation so to speak were given. Now, war is coming.
Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop was so good that when I went to my eLibrary on Overdrive to get Marked in Flesh and it wasn’t available I threw a temper tantrum like you wouldn’t believe for an over 20 year old. I’m hooked on this Others series and I ain’t ashamed to let it be known.
