Review: Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop

Publication Date: 3/3/2015
Series: The Others #3

Rating: 4.5 Stars

Official Blurb:

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… 

Vision in Silver brings us barreling back into the land of Thasia. Meg’s blood prophecies have saved so many lives in the first two books that I knew she was about to move to new heights in her blood prophecies in this book. She’s finally adapting to life in the Courtyard and into her role in the Human Liaison Office. Yet, Meg’s life isn’t about to settle into normalcy with Simon and her friends by her side. The darkness of the human world is about to spill over into Sweetwater.  This wild ride all starts with the discovery of one of the local human police officers daughter alone on a train by fellow werewolf Nathan. His discovery is about to set into motion a series of catastrophic events that will not leave the world the same as this series continues on.

Meg and Simon continue to toe the romantic line. Both are so childlike when it comes to the idea of romance and it isn’t until well into the book that readers are given a good tease as to the future of their impending romance.  Both of these characters really resonant with me not only because of the childlike look at life Meg has about the world around, but the drastically contrasting views of wolf Simon. The differing viewpoints provide a fresh prospective of Thasia and its people that I cannot compare this series to any other. This series in my opinion will continue to grow in its success and leave its readers in wonder.
