Visions in Silver ( The Others 3) by Anne Bishop

Hello to all!!


i know i'm late to post but between mother's day, my mother's multiple medical appointments etc i really need  more than 24h in a day.
So with the sun shining, i decided to make a break in the InCryptid universe ( wouldn't want you to get fed up of it) and jump back in the universe created by Anne Bishop in her " The Others" series...the next book is only available in hardback for now so it will probably be long before i get my hand on it but  i will for sure

Happy reading!

Short description from goodreads :

 The Others freed the  cassandra sangue  to protect the blood prophets from exploitation, not realizing their actions would have dire consequences. 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. In desperate need of answers, Simon Wolfgard, a shape-shifter leader among the Others, has no choice but to enlist blood prophet Meg Corbyn’s help, regardless of the risks she faces by aiding him.

Meg is still deep in the throes of her addiction to the euphoria she feels when she cuts and speaks prophecy. She knows each slice of her blade tempts death. But Others and humans alike need answers, and her visions may be Simon’s only hope of ending the conflict.

For the shadows of war are deepening across the Atlantik, and the prejudice of a fanatic faction is threatening to bring the battle right to Meg and Simon’s doorstep…



My opinion:
          Finally! finally i could read this,  the wait was so long but it was worth it ( Thank you once again Carien!!)
The author is really talented to keep the series entertaining  giving us more info on the Others but also making us more curious by adding more secrets and tension. The relationship between Meg and Simon or Meg and the Others in general is still very interesting with a lot of funny moments.

However i must also admit that Anne Bishop wrote this one a lot darker than the first books, yes there were still humor but it seemed less with the tension and more profound moment....i don't want to spoil anything to you so i won't explain just telling you that your heart will constrict at time and perhaps tissue will be needed. No fear though those moments  are spaced and in between you have fun, action and all you need. Meg, in a sense, is becoming more mature, trying to understand her need better to help others girls like her of course that doesn't go as smoothly as we would have wished for her.

We still see Sam and Skippy ^^  both still so adorable, the girls gang is still fierce together (Vlad really prefer to have them one at a time coming to speak to him than together^^ yes we can be worse than a vampire). Simon is acting like a real leader....as well as like a puppy at a time ( too , too funny^^)
The story is fascinating, the tension between and into each group  is growing and loyalties are tested...letting us know that we will see more later.( And that's teh reason i should never start a book in this series in teh evening because i can't stop reading it even if it's way too late ( or too early in this case)

So this is a series i really want to continue and i can't wait to get my hand on book 4 and waiting for book 5 already.



Score:  4,5/5
