Early Review: Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop

, by Kt Clapsadl

Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop
The Others #3

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…

Frankly I'm not sure I can do this book and this series justice in this review, but I'm going to try. Sometimes, it amazes me just how much I love this series. I'm an unashamed romance addict and considering these have barely a hit of romance, you wouldn't think they would top my all time favorites list. But they do. They are simply that good, and VISION IN SILVER is no exception. From the moment I picked it up, I couldn't put it down, winding up reading until the wee hours of the morning just to find out how everything turned out. I cannot think of a single negative thing to say about this book, and that's a rare feat. Even when I love something, there still will be at least one part that wasn't the best for me, but that's not the case here. Serious kudos.

I really love how the world is ever expanding in this series, and yet it never looses focus on the characters that drew me in the first place. Meg has a new dimension added to her character as she realizes that she has reached her limit as her coping mechanisms start to fail. It frankly couldn't have come at a better time as this realization leads them to finding how to help her, and in turn the rest of the Sangue. She really is a pioneer and I adored her for it even as I had to watch her brutally struggle. On other expanding aspects, the political ramification have stepped up a notch, and the ending left me on the edge of my seat. I don't know how I'm going to wait until the next book to see where things go next.

I hope I've given this book and series the justice they deserve. Simply put this series, and VISION IN SILVER in particular is an absolute must buy for fans of Urban Fantasy. If you haven't tried this series yet, you just don't know what you are missing!
