    Absolutely superb, no questions five glorious stars!

    This spin off of the previous series (although still called The Others) centres on The Jumble, a small, slightly down at heel holiday home with 12 small chalets located just outside the village of Sproing, near Lake Silence. The owner, Vicki DeVine is

    Anne Bishop has greated a fabulous mirror world of ours with the premise of what would happen if there was a species further up the foodchain from humans, who were the dominant species and owned the world? The land humans lived on was leased only, by this dominant species called The Others or the Terra indigene

Ie Crowe one of the shape shifting Others discovers a murdered man Vicki finds trouble instead The detectives want to pin the death on her despite the evidence that nothing human could have killed the victim As Vicki and her friends search for answers ancient forces are roused by the disturbance in their domain They have rules that must not be broken and all the destructive powers of nature at their command  . I wasn t sure how I d feel about reading another book series with the main female character having so much issue with body image But this story is like the other Yes there are elements of abuse but they were dealt with sensibly and sensitively with a uiet vein of moral support of yes you can do it you re strongWrapped around this is the wonderful mix of characters and World story and plots twists and turns Then a strong message of Humans don t learn from mistakes and disasters unless it happens to them then it s too late This is such a true thing to read and know deep down it s trueBut again to balance this is the sense of good of human spirit that when shit hits the fans some people will rise and do good to help and comfortI can t wait for the next book to this series and to the other one on Blood Prophets and looking forward to anything else Ms Bishop writesI adore everything Ms Bishop writes because her characters are so strong and intermingled so well her story telling style is so easy to ready and absorb you her stories plots and twists are enough to make the story great but not so much that you re left confused and I love the messages that are interwoven that asks you relevant uestion what kind of a human are you

Summary Lake Silence

Lake Silence

In this thrilling and suspenseful fantasy set in the world of the New York Times best selling Others series an inn owner and her shape shifting lodger find themselves enmeshed in danger and dark secrets  Human laws do not apply in the territory controlled by the Others vampires shape shifters and even deadlier paranormal beings And this is a fact that humans should never ever forget  After her divorce Vicki D. I find it hard to review the books of this series because I have fallen in love with this world and the people that populate it to the point where I am not sure I am writing an unbiased review any It still feels like I am reading a genre that is only populated by this seriesThe writing alone is so exceptional that it pulls you in from the first page I was addicted by the 15% mark and the story was revealed a bit at a time so you got to know the good the bad and the Others a bit intimately than before since in this book you are introduced to a new host of characters to loveI have to say I was disappointed when I heard we were leaving the Lakeside community behind and all the wonderful characters we had come to know and was sure it would not be a good series without them I was wrongIn Sproing no that is not mis spelled and named after rabbit looking creatures that are probably NOT what they seem we have an almost clear landscape for Ms Bishop to paint new stories in words and she gives us a bevy of new characters to root for or hate and the ever present Others and we get to meet a few Elders sort of and our first male Elemental that we get just enough page time of to make me wonder if we shall see of him in future booksOne of the few complaints I heard about the previous books was the romance or to be exact the lack thereof this book is much the same she plays with the reader to the point you are not sure if there is a small love triangle or just 3 people who become good friends as the story progresses It worked wonderfully for me since I am curious to see if anything happens in that area in future books assuming we stay in this locality for future novels NOTE As with Simon Wolfgard in Lakeside I get the vibe that perhaps down the road Ilya Sanguinati may be involved with our heroine than at present but that is just my own imagination possibly but he is a true enigma in this novel as a bit Hannible Lector and White Knight wrapped up together with a positive resultThere are many mysteries and twists that you don t see coming and I loved it all but since I am a confirmed revenge junkie justice is served in a manner that put me into my happy danceJust for basic info we have a fairly large cast of characters but the plot revolves around these 4 mainly bad guys not includedVictoria Vicky DeVine The slightly plump and mentally abused by her ex husband for over a decade before getting a divorce and moving to Sproing to rebuildmanage The Jumble a bit of a vacation cabin establishmentOfficer Wayne Grimshaw Highway Patrol and temporary Chief of Police for Sproing friend to almost everyone and really believes the Serve Protect mantraJulian Farrow Former cop current owner of the local bookstore and keeper of a lot of secrets about himselfIlya Sanguinati Other Attorney and seemingly mover and shaker for everything that goes on if he wishes to be Only answers to the Elders And as always when I finished that line came to mind So good I needed a cigarette when I finished NOTEUPDATE According to her webpage the next book will be in Bennett where a few of the people who left Lakeside went so not sure if we will see the characters from this book again or not

EVine took over a rustic resort near Lake Silence in a human town that is not human controlled Towns such as Vicki's don't have any distance from the Others the dominant predators who rule most of the land and all of the water throughout the world And when a place has no boundaries you never really know what is out there watching you  Vicki was hoping to find a new career and a new life But when her lodger Agg. Oh my god soooo gooodI loved The Others and this spin off does not disappoint with its intensity and amazing atmosphereThe plot centers around The Jumble a dilapidated retreat with a new caretaker Vicki who received it in a divorce settlement The Jumble is very similar to a Courtyard in its essence it serves as a learning ground for terra indigene as to how to communicate with humans and how to understand themVicki is a timid shy woman with very low self esteem and extreme panic attacks which come and go due to years of abuse by her ex husband In the words of her watcher Ilya Sanguinati she is like a wounded animal who hides her wounds at all costs which only lets them festerShe also accepts The Others in stride and they in turn try to protect her Aggie a young Crowguard her suave vampire attorney Ilya whom she calls Mr Yummy even some of the Elders all take up her cause And don t forget the Sproingers So creepy with their happy facesThe book starts with a murder and slowly unravels a convoluted plot to take The Jumble away from Vicki and turn it into something terra indigene will never allow It underlines again and again that extreme arrogance and superiority complex of humans which makes us so self destructiveAnne Bishop s villains are always superbly written They are just so full of themselves and so revolting that watching them is like a trainwreck You know what s going to happen but you can t look away Of course there are good humans fighting for humanity s chance to survive as well police chief Grimshaw a lovely owner of Lettuce Read a kick butt owner of a boarding house Ineke Honestly they were pretty amazing charactersThe pace feels very fast and the atmosphere is so tense you are on the edge of your seat most of the time The ending is explosive violent and dark but I don t expect anything less from The Others It s also satisfying in the way it carries justice I am very much looking forward to Wild Country a second instalment which is out March this yearHell yeah highly recommended
