As a cassandra sangue, or blood prophet, Meg Corbyn can see the future when her skin is cuta gift that feels more like a curse. Megs Controller keeps her enslaved so he can have full access to her visions. But when she escapes, the only safe place Meg can hide is at the Lakeside Courtyarda business district operated by the Others. Shape-shifter Simon Wolfgard is reluctant to hire the stranger who inquires about the Human Liaison job. First, he senses shes keeping a secret, and second, she doesnt smell like human prey. Yet a stronger instinct propels him to give Meg the job. And when he learns the truth about Meg and that shes wanted by the government, hell have to decide if shes worth the fight between humans and the Others that will surely follow.

Thanks to @wanderinglynn for the book and bookmark from the #BFCr2 #week4 check-in. My husband just returned to Canada from our NJ address and brought this with him. It's been so long I had forgotten what it was even about. What a lovely surprise! I hope you didn't think I was a dud for not posting my sincere thanks sooner.

wanderinglynn Oh my! I had no idea you hadn‘t actually received it. I‘m so glad you finally got it! 👍🏻 2mo

Book 91 of the year, finished Oct 30, audio.

I enjoyed this one. Took me a bit to get into it, my mind kept wandering and I had to replay the first chapter several times, but once the character introductions were out of the way it was a really good read.

While waiting for the next book in Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling series to arrive on my front step, I decided to try out the first of Anne Bishop's The Others books and I loved it! It's the Urban Fantasy epitome of "place slowly becomes home, people (or Others, in this case) slowly become family," which is one of my favorite tropes. I've already ordered the sequel!

Does anyone know if this book/series is heavy on the romance?

Johanna414 No, it‘s pretty light in the romance. 6mo
ShyBookOwl @Johanna414 excellent! Thank you 😊💜 6mo
Marilyncjackson No the romance in it is sweet and innocent and barely there. It is more about relationships and people building a community. I love this series because it is about “people” that are very different trying to live together and get along while dealing with some really nasty bad guys. Hope this helps. 6mo

Oh, wow...so I wrote this huge review on Goodreads and honestly honestly can't break it down simpler for 451 characters than: exceptional world building and character development! I use Kindle Unlimited for all my books, or the library (my mom bought this copy), and I'm going to dish out for the next!

#completetheseries congratulations @Mitch on your milestone. My favorite series is actually The Black Jewels by Anne Bishop but I have read all the books at least twice. My other favorite series is The Others by Anne Bishop. Her new book comes out on March 5 it‘s called Wild Country. I love her writing style and the twist she puts on monsters.

Mitch Oh exciting! I saw a play of Dracula this week, so have an appetite for monsters! Thanks for entering 🙏💕🙏 11mo

I don't know how to rate this. On the one hand, I devoured it. In the beginning the world felt really dangerous.
On the other hand, it is flawed. I like the protagonist Meg, but there was no real reason why the other characters all loved her and cared for her after just meeting her. I like the idea that the others ruled, but the human world should have differed more because of this.
Prompt Including a prophecy for #SFFTBRChallenge

PickwickPlockPlock I liked the book, but I don't know if I will read the rest because there's a romance looming in the distance that could feel squicky because of the wolf/leader/dominance/pushing around thing. 13mo

Wow! Just wow! I started this late last night thinking, meh 1 chapter. 160 pages later, I crashed with it clutched to my chest. And then woke up under the weather w/ no energy. Audiobook time! Being sick, I kept falling asleep, relistening to entire sections, which would normally frustrate me! But that is how good this book is! Putting it down was not an option. Simon Wolfgard‘s fault! All the ♥️‘s in the review book!

An imaginative paranormal urban fantasy, I was completely absorbed in the author‘s world building. The Meg, a human seer, has run away from captivity and landed at The Courtyard, a commercial and residential complex controlled by The Others. The Others are shapeshifters who see themselves as predators and humans as prey. An enjoyable story although the writing is a bit simplistic.

I happened to be reading these two around the same time. At first I would say that these books didn‘t have much in common. They are different genres, take place in different seasons and worlds. But I kept seeing their shared themes. The importance of friendship and community. The past informing present and future. I don‘t know, maybe I‘m just in a mood. Either way, I really enjoyed this book and will definitely be reading the rest of the series!
