Lake Silence (The World of The Others Book Six) by Anne Bishop
🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hats from Julia!
Once again Anne Bishop takes you to a land far away, a land you never want to leave. Her writing style is one I’ve never come across before. The writing was flawless and captivating. The characters were riveting and mesmerizing. With one sentence you are swept away in a fantastical world where the beings mimic humans and humans try and make peace with being “clever meat”. I love the multiple POVs, I feel like I get so many more answers and questions that way. I love getting into the head of the Others and finding out how they think. Ms. Bishop is a genius who can weave a new thought pattern in these Others. What makes it even more unique is that no two types of terra indigene thinks the same.
We meet the terra indigene and this incredible world in Anne Bishop’s earlier series, The Others. Honestly this reads as one of the cozy Inuit thrillers they talk about in the earlier books. Vicki is trying to get by living at The Jumble, a place she received in her divorce settlement. At the time she had no idea it was to be used as a Other training camp. When a dead body shows up, mystery and intrigue come from every corner. With the help of Aggie Crowe and Ilya Sanguinati she must find out why she’s being threatened and who wants her property.
I love Vicki, Julian, Grimshaw, Aggie, Ineke, and Ilya. Each character brings a new dynamic to the story that sucks you into the mystery. All of the POVs interconnect to bring you a whole wider view of this world and it’s inhabitants. Ms. Bishop brings back old style mystery with a twist, and I’m very much in love with it. My new favorite beings are the lake Elders and the Lady of the Lake. Imagination went wild with them and they are such a great new addition to the world.
I didn’t want this book to end and I found myself trying to slow down with every chapter. It was so hard to put down. I can’t wait to see more from Spriong. Definitely a must buy, a must read.
In this thrilling and suspenseful fantasy, set in the world of the New York Times bestselling Others series, Vicki DeVine and her lodger, the shapeshifter Aggie Crowe, stumble onto a dead body . . . and find themselves enmeshed in danger and dark secrets.
Human laws do not apply in the territory controlled by the Others–vampires, shapeshifters, and paranormal beings even more deadly. And this is a fact that humans should never, ever forget . . .
After her divorce, Vicki DeVine took over a rustic resort near Lake Silence, in a human town that is not human controlled. Towns like Vicki’s have no distance from the Others, the dominant predators that 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’s out there watching you.
Vicki was hoping to find a new career and a new life. But when her lodger, Aggie Crowe–one of the shapeshifting Others–discovers a dead body, Vicki finds trouble instead. The detectives want to pin the man’s death on her, despite the evidence that nothing human could have killed the victim. As Vicki and her friends search for answers, things get dangerous–and it’ll take everything they have to stay alive.
