Melissa's Review:

Wild Country is book 2 in The World of the Others series. I love this series and knew I had to grab it when I saw it for review. I've followed along with Meg Corbyn's journey in Lakeside and was so excited when the series got a spin off last year since I was eager to see that world in other eyes and because it's just that good. We've moved on from the Lakeside Courtyard to Lake Silence and now to Bennett. And the books just seem to be getting better and better as we go.

In this novel we're following multiple people, but mainly Jana Paniccia. Bennett is one of the towns that the Elders went through and wiped out everyone due to the Humans First and Last movement. They're now trying to rebuild the town and have it run by the terra indigene with some humans living there as well. People are still hesitant but trying to move on with their lives and find a way to coexist with the terra indigene. Jana winds up being picked to be a deputy, she's human and working for Virgil, one of the Wolfguard. More and more humans are coming to Bennett when they hear the town is filling some working roles, not all of those people are good or invited to be there. Jana is in charge of most of the human interactions since Virgil is more prone to bite first and ask questions later. There are quite a few Intuits living among the town, and they can sense that something bad is coming. When some outlaws decide to come to town, I knew there was going to be a battle, and was just hoping events wouldn't repeat itself with the Humans First and Last movement.

Wild Country is an enchanting novel you won't want to put down. While this world is brutal at times, you see how good (and bad) people can be and the consequences of their actions. I wound up loving all the main and secondary characters and kind of hope we get more books with Bennett as the focus. There was a good mix of beings in this installment ranging from the Wolfguard, Sanguinati, Intuits and of course humans. Heck we even got our own Harvester/Plague Rider making Bennett her home. I'm so intrigued by that terra indigene, and hope we get more details about that race soon. All in all, you need to try this series, you won't regret it.
