Up until now I had been giving the books in this series four stars? Why? Maybe because I'm stingy with the stars? Maybe because I'm stoopid?!
I'm breaking down and giving the stars. This is probably the best paranormal fiction I have read. I admit it.

There are more storms coming. Big storms. Bad storms. We need to make this place work.

That's the biggest question in this book. Can the "Others" keep living with the humans. After the humans act like dumbasses with the Humans First movement.

From the blog at where I had a lot of fun playing link-to-my-review.


I cannot effing believe how much this series is like candy for my brain. Really; utterly predictable, but clearly engineered to hit that magic trifecta of sugar, fat and salt. Read and could not put it down. I'm not even bothered by the filling I now need.


Ok, feelz out of the way, I spent some time on a thoughtful review:

Three five-star ratings for three books in this series, that’s pretty much all you need to know before running to the bookstore to get your own copies of all three available books. But if you need more convincing (as I usually do), I’m more than happy to sing praise until I go hoarse. Or lose a finger typing. You get my point.

Here it is in no uncertain terms: The Others, Anne Bishop’s fantasy series, is brilliant, no two ways about it. Her worldbuilding is extraordinary, her characters fascinati

Make way, make way, for the newest installment of the best Urban Fantasy is now upon us. I shit you not, folks, The Others is still going strong, and no doubt it would continue to be so in the years to come. If I ever had one wish for the literary world, it would be this: that Anne Bishop would never, ever tire of writing about this complex, fantastic world, because when that day comes, I fear it would be the day my heart would wilt and die.

The time to write a full-length review for this book I do not have, ergo severely cut the crap shall be. Must be your lucky day and stuff.

Why this book should have been most ruthlessly buried in the unfathomable depths of my DNF graveyard:

Nothing happens.

Nothing happens.

③ Once in a while, nothing happens.

④ Some authors write slow-paced books. Anne Bishop writes no-pace books. Because nothing happens = no action = no need for pacing and stuff = tada!

I’m sad after finishing Visions of Silver because I truly didn’t want the book to end! I kept thinking “nooooo” as I saw the percentage on my Kindle climbing to 100. I have to say this is my favorite fantasy series out there to date. This installment was very much about Monty and his daughter Lizzy, and the changing relationship between terra indigene and humans.

As we know from the previous books, Elayne, Monty’s former lover, had taken up with Nicolas Scratch, prominent spokesperson of Humans

Buddy read with Nina, whose review I unremorsefully command you to read.

As a matter of fact, as for Murder of Crows the true rating is 3.5, but the general impression that the book left in my impenetrable (especially to myself) mind is closer to four than to three, hence the four stars.
I never said my rating policy was easily understandable. But I can assure you I'm being coherent with myself.

Now that I am finished with this book, I have to wait an entire year for the next one. And, I just can't do that. Nope. Not good at waiting. At all.

I love this series so much! There is no end to the amazing characters who are so well written that they steal my heart. I just want Anne Bishop locked in a room, writing, forever, so that I can keep reading her books. Is that too much to ask?

So, in this book, we are really continuing on with the story that has been shaping up for a while. There is a

Let it be known that this series is peerless; Anne Bishop’s world-building is innovative, her characters are exceptional, and the story is obsession inducing. I picked-up WRITTEN IN RED on a whim in 2013, and was wowed beyond measure. My fixation with all things THE OTHERS is so profound that it should be a bona fide medical condition. No joke! I listened to the previous two installments, so I did have some concerns that switching to hard copy might diminish my enjoyment

Why is Meg in this book's cover? This isn't a book about Meg. This was Monty's and Lizz's book. I saw very little of Meg and I am so upset and disappointed. I mean, Monty and his daughter aren't even Others.

First 50% was good-ish.

I hate to say it but this instalment in the series was boring. The book started off promising with the conflict between the humans and terra indigene but this plot overpowered everything else in the book. There was little to no character growth between Meg and the inhabitants of the courtyard. This was particularly annoying in relation to Meg and Simon. Everyone, including readers and the characters in the book, know where this relationship is going and yet nothing has happened to further my int ...more

I want to preface this by saying I totally enjoy this series.

I like Meg. I like Simon. I’m keep hoping that somehow they will hook up and soon but it is really slow on that front….like snail pace slow. Still even though the romance I long for is waiting to catch fire that didn’t diminish my enjoyment of this book.

There are a few issues though that I saw in this. It sometimes gets a bit repetitive. Good if you are going a year between books and need a refresher, everything from prior books is br
This series is quickly becoming one of my top favorites. Such an interesting world. I'm totally caught up in the lives and challenges of these two groups of people struggling to make things work in a world that is headed towards a war. The Others and their "human pack" are such an intriguing story to read. I love the growth we've seen in the Others as they come to care for some humans, and the increase in number of humans on the "right side of history."

A buddy read with my family at the Wednesday BB&B Urban Fantasy Group!

This series continues to get better and better. The overall arc of humans trying to live in harmony with the original inhabitants of the planet, The Others, and failing miserably, has taken a very interesting route under the treatment of the author, Anne Bishop. I have heard many times that you either like her writing or you hate it, and once again I am finding out that I am on "I Love It" side of the argument. Is
Vision in Silver is an utterly brilliant addition to The Other Series by Anne Bishop.

Simon Wolfgard, leader of the Courtyard, is dealing with the aftermath of cassandra sangue's freedom. The once exploited seers are not handling their new freedom very well. There are those who wish to use the difficulties to regaining use of cassandra sangue while causing political turmoil against the Others.

She wasn’t a Wolf. She wasn’t terra indigene. Despite that, Meg was becoming one of them.

There are no words to convey how much I LOVE this series!!!


When the Others saved the cassandra sangue from their jailers, they never expected the danger that would follow. No one knows how to protect these fragile seers, especially when all of them seems unable to handle their new surroundings. And the only one who can provide the answers to saving them is Meg

So good!!!! A bit less cohesive than the previous couple of books, but just as heart-warming and compelling as always. Bishop knows how to tug on my heart strings and makes even the darkest moments glow with silver lining... I love the way she delves into the debts of her characters! So good to visit the worlds she creates! Looking forward to every opportunity to be back again 🙂

The Meg is back! Well, she is not actually The Meg anymore. She's Our Meg and that may be even better.

If you have no idea what I am talking about, you are clearly missing out on one of my favorite Urban Fantasy series and you need to stop what you are doing and go buy Written in Red. No really. Do it now.

This third installment picks up right on the heels of book 2. It follows Meg as she continues to find balance, free of the Controller and the Walking Names who shaped her life for so long. She h

Vision in Silver is the 3rd book in The Others series by Anne Bishop. I liked this one but compared to the first two books it was a bit of a letdown. In this book, the story is told from the viewpoints of several characters. While in the first two books we read from mainly Meg’s perspective. I adored her voice. Unfortunately we don’t get nearly as much from Meg in this one.

I’ve never been a fan of reading books that are told from a large cast of characters, as this one was. The perspective is s

I'm still enjoying this series and I can't quite put my finger on why. The plot can be easy to figure out in advance and one new problem appeared out of the blue as if the author suddenly needed it for this book and plopped it in, rather than show hints of it throughout books 1 and 2 (view spoiler).

The first half of this book is like a gigantic puzzle. It gives you tons of information and builds a world and situations that are bond to happen. You know it. The thing is: sometimes, you don't understand why what you are reading is so important. But it is. And it will come back later and you'll be 'ahhh now it makes sense.'

The series was still addicting by this point, but there's a lot of downtime. I think the focus of the books now is to progress the overall plot of the FULL series, not just one book with its individual story. While the author wants to focus on how the whole world is affected individually, I'm more interested in the town of Lakeside. It's fascinating when its t

With unlike heroine, big twist on werewolves and vampires myth and ambitious world building, I am pretty sure The Others series has the most original concept in genre right now. There is nothing like it out there and it's the idea Bishop is pitching successfully to readers third year in a row.:)
