No one creates realms like New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop. Now in a thrilling new fantasy series, enter a world inhabited by the Others, unearthly entitiesvampires and shape-shifters among themwho rule the Earth and whose prey are humans. 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.

Thank you @Nessavamusic I love everything. The books have been on my TBR for a long time. The Gummi candy is right up my alley. The pillow case is gorgeous but I have no clue what book it is from lol. The keychain, bookmark, and sticky tabs are great. And the card is adorable. #Staycationswap @DinoMom @Chrissyreadit

Nessavamusic Yay I‘m so glad you like everything! 3mo

The first book in The Others series is off to a good start! A unique take on humans and supernaturals coexisting in society. Anne Bishop is one of my favorite authors, and she writes relationships very well so I am eager to see where this goes! 🐺🐺🐺🐺🐺

This is a great start to a series, and I can't wait to dig into the rest. Meg is a Blood Prophet and she has spent most of her life caged and forced to create prophecies for money. She escaped and takes refuge with the Others. Unlike other urban fantasy series, in this world, the non-humans are fully in charge, and the humans are allowed to live only because they are useful. (Cont. ⬇️)

CoffeeK8 Through Meg's time with the others she forges relationships & begins to help the Others see humans as something other than meat. 2y
SW-T OMG, yes! This series (and its spinoff) is absolutely awesome! One of my all time favs for sure! 💗 2y

July #BookSpin Bingo. Meg, by cutting herself (trigger for persons with self harm hx) she will have visions. She found refuge in the courtyard where wolves, vampires and other earth shape-shifters live.But there is a reward to find her and the adventure starts. Her liaison with "The Others" will change how the Others interact with humans. Slow at the beginning but a lot of action later, some parts were cheesy or meh, but it was interesting. 3.85⭐️

Chrissyreadit I love this entire series- 💚💚💚 2y

I just finished "Written in Red" by Anne Bishop. It is the first novel in the series "The Others".
This is not a typical paranormal/shapeshifter/werewolf romance. This story is about beings, who have an animal form and a human form, who are intelligent and have feelings, but who will never be just an animal or a human. Other topics are human greed and its destructivness and finding a place to call home.
I liked it a lot.

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! 👍🏻 3y

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.

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

Johanna414 No, it‘s pretty light in the romance. 3y
ShyBookOwl @Johanna414 excellent! Thank you 😊💜 3y
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. 3y

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 🙏💕🙏 4y
Marilyncjackson @Mitch thank you 😊 beware you might not always know who the monsters are. The series is not a horror one 😁 4y

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. 4y

Had to get up early and set up our table for the local Out of the Darkness walk my company is sponsoring for suicide prevention awareness month. Spoke to a lot of people. Met some cute dogs. Now back home to relax and start the tagged book.

So, I‘m really enjoying Foundryside and The Calculating Stars. Really, I am. But I‘m super stressed and might just go for some quick comfort reading, even if I‘ve already read through this series twice this year. (I‘m definitely getting my money‘s worth out of this kindle splurge!!)

What do you when you‘re stressed? Comfort read or stick with something new and good?

I really enjoyed this book and already started book two ignoring other library books that might expire!! A really great urban fantasy world with all sorts of creatures and elementals. I love how all different creatures and humans interact in this. Wolves, crows, bears, owls, hawks, vampires, and really so much more!

Ronda One of my favourite series, spectacular books that get better and better! 😁 4y
