we want more! we want more!

The extremely popular urban fantasy series, The Others has blown away fans with its third installment, Vision in Silver which came out yesterday! Author Anne Bishop is already getting some major buzz as she has absolutely perfected main character, Meg Corbyn and the alternate universe of Namid, (located in in present-day North America). To give you a little background in case you are unfamiliar, Meg is a blood prophet. When she cuts her skin enough to draw blood, she is able to see prophecies, and many "people" in her world don't like this little talent. Formally locked up, the blood prophets are now free of their keepers and these girls are not exactly ready for life outside the compounds. Simon, the leader of the lakeside pack, is determined to help the blood prophets, with Meg's help. Together, they will teach the girls how to survive in the world, but they have to move fast. The relationship between Meg and Simon progresses slowly but in a way that is completely natural and doesn't pull from the rest of the story. And I never realized how damaged Meg actually is until I read this book. Anyways, a little bit goes a long way with the smaller characters, I loved what Jackson and Hope added. Vision in Silver is good, so if you are a fan of the series, you won't be disappointed. If you're a newbie, I recommend that you stop, and grab a copy of Written in Red so that you can begin at the beginning.
