exploitation not realizing their actions would have dire conseuences Now the fragile seers are in greater danger than ever before; both from their own weaknesses and from those who seek to control their divinations for wicked purposes From the blog at where I had a lot of fun playing link to my reviewI cannot effing believe how much this series is like candy for my brain Really utterly predictable but clearly engineered to hit that magic trifecta of sugar fat and salt Read and could not put it down I m not even bothered by the filling I now needOk feelz out of the way I spent some time on a thoughtful reviewThree hundred posts has given at the very least perspective on why a particular book may or may not appeal to me As I wrote in my review of the surprisingly ghastly The Diviners review I tend to read for three things plot character and language Usually at least one can sustain me through a book You see I m citing myself so I don t turn into Jonah Lehrer review Anne Bishop s The Others series is light on all three and yet it is the Pringles in my reading world I can t put them down I should dislike this The plot nominally revolves around a twenty four year old woman who is astonishingly naive Normally this would cause at least a small eye roll but the context is that until six months ago she s been confined against her will her life structured and optimized to divine the future when her her skin is cut and blood drawn Actually her innocence to behavior subtleties becomes a clever narrative device allowing her to seek explanations along with the reader Many reviews rave on the world building but I ve found it glaringly incomplete good heavens it s odd If Sanderson gave the impression of having created the world before writing a plot in The Way of Kings review Bishop seems to be discovering it in context of plotting Inconsistencies appear but because Bishop spends so little time on the details I ve managed not to dwell on them eitherConsider The Others are a lifeform native to America or whatever Bishop calls it but since it has the Atlantik Ocean and five Great Lakes let s go with America Currently many Others live in Courtyards in large human cities similar to embassies There are small human communities as well particularly ones around farming settlements However The Others control all the land leasing it to the humans with wild spaces between communities for their wild brethren But humans mine farm log ship and presumably work in the steel mills they mention Trains run between communities Ships sail the oceans Snowmobiles and golf carts exist There are also cars electric lights email computers videos cellphones and telephones Not mentioned is the corollary that there are rubber plantations power plants cobalt mines movie studios satellites and telephone lines uestions why does news take so long to travel Why do The Others have to take trains with humans to get from community to community instead of emailing calling or using their other form Why does Bishop continually call attention to The Others rescinding leases for pollution without recognizing those industries are all dirty There s enough cars to cause accidents At the same time there s all these normalcurrent resources why are The Others concerned with understanding the human community Haven t they already understood it enough if they can drive use computers lease land have Other focused movies and Other focused booksIt s a mess I tell you I mostly accept it and in this book even grew to appreciate it as Simon the leader of The Others in Lakeside wonders if The Others taking human form are going to evolve into the replacement for the humans I ve also assumed that Bishop was hinting at technological developments that would win the war against The Others such as airplanes and mass produced weapons But guns are already in play in this society hunters are talked about in the first book and this book points out that one of the fearsome Others needs to be in a certain range in order to harvest life and being wounded by a gun is possible So sure it s clear humans can t win against earthuakes tornadoes and snowstorms but are The Others ready to lose the corporeal based lifeforms and why are they so innocent about the risks humans present And holy distractions are The Others really any different from humans if they enjoy hanging out in front of a movie with some popcornLazy world building aside characterization is not particularly layered either It s an ensemble cast and Bishop commits the crime of repetitive description adding little information time they appear Crows like shiny Tess hair turns color with her mood wolves growl when they are irritated spirits have the characteristics of their namesake Winter Spring Monty one of the policemen gets the most chance to develop when we meet his family Meg the blood prophet shows a little character growth although there s some not so slick reverse engineering allowing it after 6 months outside her compound she suddenly discovers too much sensory detail is overwhelming and she ll shut down Other than that the narrative character switching mostly gives the reader the sense that something is happening when really it is isn t At least not in a large way Personally I have the feeling that Bishop was trying to get the reader to the point where such shifts in world view would seem seismic They didn t of course but they did seem significantMore significantly there s a lot of chauvinism in this book Males are leaders enforcers and spiritual gurus whether Others Simon Eliot Blair Nathan Henry or humans governor mayor cult leader policeman Women are the balancing act the emotion the social glue that keeps things running soothes chaos and can be diverted by movies yoga and jewelry Most readers won t complain about the chauvinism because it is of the Noble Knight School of Sexism where strong men protect the youngwomen broker the deals do the investigating the fighting and the traveling Men are predators Yes yes this book has a scene that has an exception to this One I was thinking about this again because a normal real wolf pack always has females particularly a very dominant one as co leader and there are no female wolves present in this situation It s clear that there is a very gentle growing relationship between Meg and Simon so a lack of female balance keeps the social relationships focused on where Bishop wants it But it is notable for me as another area that usually results in a serious amount of annoyance particularly when done by Jim Butcher reveiewAnd the writing I d give it tenth grade level give or take Simple structure straight forward punctuation and very few superlatives The simplicity fits with Simon and Meg s voices but the rest of the time I suspect that because so much of it is dialogue focused it isn t as noticeable Still as I enjoy a vivid descriptor note the beautiful language tag on my page so I find it interesting that this doesn t bore me Meg didn t remember much about the storm that struck Lakeside after she d fallen through the ice on the creek But she remembered being stuck in the hospital because the whole city had been trapped by a record snowfall Crows followed them as they continued down the road Hawks soared overhead or found a convenient observation perch A couple of Owls who should have been home by now flew over their heads So it s clear right I should be vehemently opposed to reading this but I can t stop it s so delicious After I finished this one I started re reading it the next day And finished it again Sure there s problems but nothing really has pushed me into full eye roll I also remain intrigued because it s the only UF I ve read so far that treats humans like inferior citizens and hints at an upcoming disaster I can only conclude that Bishop has hit the taste trifecta of ideal composition of Sugar Salt and Fat reviewThree and a half Other stars

Others has no choice but to enlist blood prophet Meg Corbyn’s help regardless of the risks she faces by aiding himMeg is still deep in the throes of her addiction to the euphoria she feels when she cuts and speaks prophecy She kno Make way make way for the newest installment of the best Urban Fantasy is now upon us I shit you not folks The Others is still going strong and no doubt it would continue to be so in the years to come If I ever had one wish for the literary world it would be this that Anne Bishop would never ever tire of writing about this complex fantastic world because when that day comes I fear it would be the day my heart would wilt and die I wish I were kidding but I seriously love this series that damn muchI know I ve said this again and again but it demands to be repeated I loved Written in Red and Murder of Crows the first and second books of this series They were fun beautiful and riveting reads that made me turn pages like a lunatic so engrossed in the stories politics and dynamics in the Lakeside Courtyard It made me want to ditch my human skin and join these shapeshifting creatures as they are definitely fun than all these grouchy greedy humans if you read this you will understand what I mean I expected Vision in Silver to be as good but it actually went beyond everything that I could ever hope for I didn t think it was possible but this third book might just be my favorite yetThe political intrigue that started in Written in Red concerning the issues between the humans and the terra indigene continues to grow here in book 3 the tension and violence ever increasing especially with the appearance of Lizzy the daughter of police officer Monty who may have jumpstarted a controversial string of events when she escaped a particularly difficult situation It was so intense to see everything play out here from how our friends at Howling Good Reads reacted to how they took charge even to how the humans attempted to manipulate them to take the upper hand The plot points here were seriously so interesting to read as it effectively portrayed how far a specie can go when they think it s for their own survival Seeing everything go down to the ending was such a roller coaster ride that I still can t forget it up to this day Needless to say when it ended my mind was still reeling from the impact of itAnd it s not just that the world here grows as well There is a deep sense of mystery present as soon as the book hints at hidden terra indigene too powerful and too old to even imagine and comprehend They aren t really there in a traditional physical sense but their presence and power and influence simply jump from the pages making you feel mystified and weirdly humbled It s so weird how that happened but when I came to that point I just really felt small simply from how even Simon was scared of them whoever them might be This made me only excited to see what else is in store for us I love how Bishop knows which kind of information to withhold making us yearn for them and when she discloses them it hits us like a pick up truck and our minds are left reeling unable to compute the information given She is that goodAnd the relationship My SHIIIP Simon and Meg continue to grow here as individuals and as friends or maybe soon to be lovers YES PLEASE taking their time as they discover about each other and about themselves How they affected other in many ways is even pronounced here and what is even better is that they are slowly becoming conscious of it and my gods IT IS DELICIOUS I just love their dynamics the gestures here and there that are small but are so precious and meaningful They come from different backgrounds from different species altogether but the chemistry IS RIGHT OVER THERE and it s so interesting to see how their differences translate when it comes to their interactions with each other and with other people or creatures meheheLong story short this series and this book is perfection and don t believe anyone saying otherwise PVisions in Silver is a VERY strong continuation of a series that is known for its amazing likeable and uniue cast of characters and its world that is so vast different and eerily familiar all at the same time If you haven t started this one yet or the series in general you re missing out and I implore you to get your copies now Post readingLOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVEIt is one of my fervent wishes to live in Lakeside Courtyard It amazes me everyday how Anne Bishop is able to create a world so brutal and so charming at the same time To be honest I love this installment the most Finally some progress between two awesome characters we get to see a little of the world while still being mysterious at the same time and oh a lot of special meat MIAMIn any case if you loved the last two books and are eagerly waiting for this one I GUARANTEE YOU THAT IT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT NON NON NON YOU WILL LOVE IT TO BITS
