    Up until now I had been giving the books in this series four stars Why Maybe because I m stingy with the stars Maybe because I m stoopid I m breaking down and giving the stars This is probably the best paranormal fiction I have read I admit it.There arestorms coming Big storms Bad storms We need to make this place work.That s the biggest question in this book Can the Others keep living with the humans After the humans act like dumbasses with the Humans First movement The w Up until now I had been giving the books in this series four stars Why Maybe because I m stingy with the stars Maybe because I m stoopid I m breaking down and giving the stars This is probably the best paranormal fiction I have read I admit it.There arestorms coming Big storms Bad storms We need to make this place work.That s the biggest question in this book Can the Others keep living with the humans After the humans act like dumbasses with the Humans First movement The world building in these books is big and I ve gotten attached to several of the characters and every book I whine that I wantof that character I do understand when books have this much going on that you can only give the reader so much I think instead of 400 page books these should go on to be 800 page puppy squishers..and I would still eat them up.It s fun watching Meg s character grow It s only been a few months since she escaped the controller and the Others are allowing her to grow into her own person Sometimes I got aggravated with her and felt she was Mary Sue ing but then the other characters jumped in a snapped her little whiny ass back into the character I love.Watching the human pack interact with the Others is tons of fun too.A pack of human females and some Crows in a building full of things to buy He sat back and sighed And humans think vampires are scary The story still doesn t move along as fast as some books do but then it really didn t cause me to glaze my eyes over in boredom Bishop kept my attention so much that I didn t even realize that I was at the end of the book That rarely happens I completely have steeped into this world and I love every single second of it Must have this object too Completely fangirling Now I have to wait a year for the next installment Unacceptable WANTS MORE I m thinking this story instead of the whole sexy vampire werewolf thing should have became the norm Because it s awesome

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 need Ok, feelz out of the way, I spent some time on a thoughtful review Three 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 either.Consider 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 theirwild 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 Questions 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 normal current 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 books It 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 earthquakes, tornadoes and snowstorms, but are The Others ready to lose thecorporeal 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 popcorn Lazy 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 significant.More 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 young women, 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 reveiew.And 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 meMeg 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 review.Three and a half Other stars

    So much is wrong with this book Hell, this entire series BUT I CAN T STOP READING.It s so frustrating to know on an intellectual level that there are multiple plot holes view spoiler Why are the humans suddenly unafraid to mock Others in public A month or so ago, the wolves would literally EAT anyone who wandered across their fence and serve the human meat in their butcher shop They couldn t get anyone reliable to work for them, because all the humans were too freaked out by what went on in So much is wrong with this book Hell, this entire series BUT I CAN T STOP READING.It s so frustrating to know on an intellectual level that there are multiple plot holes view spoiler Why are the humans suddenly unafraid to mock Others in public A month or so ago, the wolves would literally EAT anyone who wandered across their fence and serve the human meat in their butcher shop They couldn t get anyone reliable to work for them, because all the humans were too freaked out by what went on in there But NOW the Others are under attack and nobody is afraid of them I kinda doubt that hide spoiler , several unbelievably convenient developments to further the story view spoiler Meg s suddenly overwhelmed by too much stimulusnow After months of living in the Courtyard now she suddenly has panic attacks if something in her office is moved She gets dizzy if she goes into one of the stores that sell postcards and office supplies Are you fucking kidding me with this shit hide spoiler , and characters who all seem to be incredibly naive about the world they live in view spoiler How do the vast majority of Others not know the basic things about how to buy goods and interact with humans If the only reason they re allowing humans to exist is because they like the stuff they make, then shouldn t they USEof the stuff they make on a regular basis Or becurious about how to get that stuff hide spoiler I love these books, but if I start scratching the surface of the story Besides my spoilery complaints, I get a bit frustrated with the way the characters think and speak The Crows with their obsession with Shiny is a good example I think it s supposed to make them seem to have aanimalistic nature, but it just makes them sound mentally retarded And I have the same problem with Meg and Simon sometimes Both of them seem soun adult Listening to Meg is like listening to an awkward 10 year old, and listening to Simon is what I imagine listening to a somewhat lovable junkyard dog sounds like sighI ve never been happier that a relationship was moving along at such a slow pace because I don t think either of them has any idea about what they re doing So with all of my complaints, why should you read this No idea.But you SHOULD I don t know what it is about Bishop s series that fascinates me, but I ve been binge reading these suckers for a few weeks now, and I just can t get enough Sometimes there s no logical explanation for why you love something Ok, the short and skinny version of Vision in Silver It s about the other Blood Prophets like Meg, and Monty and his daughter Lizzy.They all need to be saved from the Humans First and Last HFL movement, and the Others from Lakeside decide it s their job to protect them Craziness ensues, new characters are introduced, and the humans get one step closer to annihilation I love it What am I going to do when I finish the next book in a few days, and have to wait for 5 to come out sobsFANTASTIC STUFF Go on, eat the candy

    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 serie 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 much.I 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 definitelyfun 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 yet The 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 everincreasing, 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 it.And 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 good.And 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 discoverabout each other and about themselves How they affected other in many ways is evenpronounced 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, mehehe.Long 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 unique 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 reading LOVE 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 littleof the world while still being mysterious at the same time, and, oh, a lot of special meat MIAM.In 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

    I m sad after finishing Visions of Silver because I truly didn t want the book to end I kept thinking nooooo as I saw the percentage on my Kindle climbing to 100 I have to say this is my favorite fantasy series out there to date This installment was very much about Monty and his daughter Lizzy, and the changing relationship between terra indigene and humans As we know from the previous books, Elayne, Monty s former lover, had taken up with Nicolas Scratch, prominent spokesperson of Humans I m sad after finishing Visions of Silver because I truly didn t want the book to end I kept thinking nooooo as I saw the percentage on my Kindle climbing to 100 I have to say this is my favorite fantasy series out there to date This installment was very much about Monty and his daughter Lizzy, and the changing relationship between terra indigene and humans As we know from the previous books, Elayne, Monty s former lover, had taken up with Nicolas Scratch, prominent spokesperson of Humans First and Last and this becomes very important to the events that play out in Vision in Silver HFL s movement stirs up much hate towards the terra indigene and forms a divisive line between the humans who are friendly towards terra indigene and those who are not The lines between humans and terra indigene in the Lakeside Courtyard, on the other hand, have become blurred Now instead of thinking of them as just clever meat , they re viewed as members of their human pack, or Meg s human pack, affording them consideration and protection These changes in attitude are thanks to Meg, she s the catalyst, The Trailblazer in a new friendship forming between the two kinds Living outside of an institutionalized situation is also becoming an issue with the rescued Cassandra Sangue girls, as well as Meg The outside world can easily overwhelm these girls to a dangerous level But because Meg is a littleself aware and been on the outside longer, she s able to recognize triggers that set these girls on edge There are so many aspects to this series I love to think about, like the verbal hierarchy The Others used to indicate the degree of interaction with an individual they d use the Lizzy to indicateof an outsider, or worse that Lizzy to indicate a human they didn t like As soon as humans became closer they became just Lizzy or in the case of Meg where there s special affection and possession assigned, our Meg The interactions between the humans and terra indigene in the Lakeside Courtyard continue to be fascinating and hilarious at times Of course the development of the romance between Simon and Meg continues to be my favorite part of the story Simon and Meg are very new to the dynamics of a romantic relationship not that they actually know they re in one and so some of their feelings take a while click It s very entertaining to witness the light coming on Things are coming to a head with the humans and the terra indigene, especially in regards to the powerful,dangerous, wild forms of terra indigene They are for the moment quietly sitting back and watching all the interactions, but could very quickly step in and wipe out all the humans if they becomeof a threat It s hard to properly express how special and unique this series is All I can say is if you haven t picked it up, you are definitely missing out A copy was kindly provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.This review is also posted on The Readers Den

Square, Simon said.Sarah giggled Robert said, We re not pups we re kids He eyed Robert and Sarah withinterest Little humans can shift into young goats I want someone to erect a statue in honour of the one and only Simon Wolfgard Thing number one to get off my chest the romance view spoiler No, there is absolutely no progress when it comes to the romance or better, ther is, but only at the end, and if you want to see it you should arm yourselves with a microscope hide spoiler I thought I had to clarify this because I currently find myself in a desperate situation view spoiler I need to know if they get together in book four yes, yes, I m looking for a spoiler, you can begin throwing your tomatoes in one, two, three and not a single one of the lucky souls who have already read it specify that in their reviews And here I am, like, dying So this is why I provided this information first giving you the choice whether to get you spoiled or not, and this is why the first thing I ll put in my review of Marked in Flesh when I ll finally read it will be, rigorously under the spoilery tag, if they kiss or not Stay tuned hide spoiler Now, back to the present.Did I want to punch them in the face Yes.Did I pray at night for this situation to just get solved Yes.Did I internally die a little at every page I turned Yes.Did this influence how much I enjoyed the book Not in the slightest Ok, maybe a tiny bit but only for fangirl ish reasons, and anyway not enough to call it a decisive factor.The thing is, it makes sense It s not like the author turned the whole thing in a overly dramatic act or did something as ridiculous as that view spoiler Both Meg and Simon are still too immature to get into a relationship, and, as much as it kills me, I have to acknowledge that if they got together now, their dynamic would have only been awkward and negatively unsecure I want it to be perfect If that meanswaiting, man, I ll wait Just please, hurry hide spoiler Besides, they are so cute The circumstances brought me to overly appreciate and thus squeal in delight for every littlest thing It was an odd kind of enjoyment, and I treasured every moment Plot wise, Vision in Silver was so much better than Murder of Crows, almost at the level of Written in Red, I daresay Which, by the way, I feel the urge to reread Anyway, in a few words, I think that what makes this plot truly captivating is that finally the world beyond the Courtyard comesinto play Not only, but, basically, the central part of the action takes place there, on the outside, and though we don t get to see it directly, everything is reported by way of a couple of dirrent narrative and stylistic choices that, in addition, lent the narration a peculiar sense of perspective that proves to be higly intriguing the reader feels trapped I m not using this term in any negative sense in the Courtyard, and yet the mystery to solve is located on the outside I came to think of it as of the opposite of a locked room mystery Really enjoyable But now there comes a touchy subject Meg If you read my previous reviews for this series, you know how much I loved her character A curious mixture of shyness and fierceness, innocence and hunger Well, here, in the first dozen of chapters or so, Meg experiences an inexplicable regression that stunned, angered and outraged me I sincerely don t know where it came from or how it was even possible One moment she was just fine the next she was wailing like a baby because she noticed she s having troubles adapting to the world outside the compund I could have accepted that if she hadn t handled everything just fine for the previous four or whatever months.I understand that the autor needed a way to give her the means and a contingency to write the Guide, but at the expense of the protagonist s characterization My answer would have been a ginormous No, thank you As a proof that Bishop had just had a moment of perdition only Namid knows why and that she has not lost her touch, all the other characters are simply as fantastic as they were in the previous books, and, to be fair, after those first chapters Meg even gets back to her old self, for the joy of everyone Moreover, Monty and her daughter are really sweet, and Elayne s character, who before had so little relevance, no only becomes crucial, but also shows some shades of herself that actually moved me.In a nutshell, I appreciated and enjoyed this book for a couple of reasond that are surely different from the ones for which I enjoyed Murder of Crows and only partially identifiable in the ones for which I enjoyed Written in Red It lacked some things, but was nonetheless full of surprises.Now give me Marked in Flesh I ll give you a Wolf cookie And another quote Why do a field trip Because someone untied its shoes Meg frowned That makes no sense

I also loved the way all of the Others acted like the teddy bear was alive, or had feelings It was so freaking cute and funny.When Lizzy was talking to the police and said that Boo Bear might have been to blame for the bad guys following her Nathan considered this informationIt sounded like human young didn t know enough to stay quiet and hidden when a predator came sniffing around the den Didn t seem fair to blame Boo Bear, though, since he wouldn t have blabbed to anyone. So many times, when I was reading the different wolves thoughts while they were trying to understand the humans, I thought of my dogs when they do that cute head tilt thing You know, when they act like they are trying to understand you Aww, that s so cute Let s give him something But, most of all, I love the relationship between Meg and Simon Since Meg doesn t know how to human any better than Simon does, it is super adorable watching them grow into a romance of sorts There has been no actual romance in the books at all, but it seems like it may be heading that way Very very slowly I am dying for Simon and Meg to get together They will be the cutest couple ever
