WoW [145] - Vision in Silver

Title: Vision in Silver
Author: Anne Bishop
Series: The Others #3
Release Date: March 3rd 2015

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…
Why I am waiting:
I've read one of ABishop's series before and enjoyed it. Haven't had the chance to read this series yet though. Let me know if you've read book one or two and what your thoughts were!

  1. I've read all three so far. I was lucky to get an eARC of Vision. I was not impressed with Written In Red and handed it off to my sister saying you may or may not want to read it, I wasn't impressed. Well, she liked it more so I decided to reread it for some reason it clicked. I have read the first two several times and love them on audio book. Vision in Silver continues right after Murder of Crows ends and tells how mainstreaming the cassandra sangue isn't going to be easy and the HFL tries to bring down The Others in an unexpected way. I really enjoyed it and have pre-ordered the audio version. I like the slow progression in Meg's and Simon's relationship because it's only been a few months and it's very realistic that it's slow. One negative is that I think Anne Bishop has a tendency to let the big climatic scenes fizzle out. I felt that way about the controller scene in Murder and in Vision when The others realize what the HFL is doing.
