For centuries, the Others and humans have lived side by side in uneasy peace. But when humankind oversteps its bounds, the Others will have to decide how much humanity they’re willing to tolerate—both within themselves and within their community… Since the Others allied themselves with the cassandra sangue, the fragile yet powerful human blood prophets who were being exploited by their own kind, the delicate dynamic between humans and Others changed. Some, like Simon Wolfgard, wolf shifter and leader of the Lakeside Courtyard, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn, see the new, closer companionship as beneficial—both personally and practically. But not everyone is convinced. A group of radical humans is seeking to usurp land through a series of violent attacks on the Others. What they don’t realize is that there are older and more dangerous forces than shifters and vampires protecting the land that belongs to the Others—and those forces are willing to do whatever is necessary to protect what is theirs.
Besides the first book in the series this is my next favorite. Everything that’s been building finally comes to a head in this book and it did not disappoint, but Anne Bishop never does. She is one of my absolute favorite authors and I would recommend her books to anyone. I always love when I get one of her advanced readers copies because I am always greedy to get my hands on her books. This series was a lot different than her others. Her other books are much more high fantasy, where as The Others series has a foothold in reality. Since everything major got concluded in this book I’m not sure there will be another book, but I am really hoping there will. I would like to see what happens with Simon and Meg and how the other cassandra sangue end up. If you’re looking for a good series you can never do wrong with picking up a book by Anne Bishop.
