That moment when the book is creepy because of humans playing mind games and not a freaky supernatural boogeyman duo, even though they existed and by all rights were very creepy. Humans suck man.

The upside is this little connecting sentence between this book series and it‘s sister series:

“P.S. Meg said I need to work on how humans say sorry. I said giving you books is better.”

I agree. Books are better.

For the record, I am immensely creeped out and incredibly thankful that I chose to sleep last night instead of reading this book after dark…. Even now, 4:30 pm, full daylight with sunset at nearly 9 pm….. I‘m not sure this book is a good idea…… I need a comfort something. Where‘s my mini 🐉 plushie George….. 😱 😱

I love this world. I liked the bones of this book- literally and figuratively- this was not my favorite- and there‘s no way to read this as a stand alone- and I have some thoughts I‘d love to discuss if anyone else wants to chat in a thread here.

HeyT Oh is this the latest? I think I‘m almost caught up with the series 3mo
LiseWorks Just finished this one, another good one for me 3mo
Gissy I need to read one more book before this one🤗 3mo
ShelleyBooksie I'm up to date on the series except for this one. I LOVE her writing. 3mo

This is the newest one of The Others Series. You have to have read the series previous books to know who the characters are. The author has created quite a world here.

While not as good as the first novel set in Silence Lake, this was a fast paced mystery style book. I almost felt like it was a novella with a lot of pages.
Crowbones, a legend among the Others, comes out and murders during a tricksters night celebration and brings all kinds of trouble for the growing town. Who is the real Crowbones and how can the town prevent more deaths?
3/5 stars, good but not great

I liked this new story in The Others world. This was more mystery in the urban fantasy world and no romance this time round. Which does make sense for this story. Not as strong as previous books, but I still enjoyed it and it was a fast read. 3.5⭐️

Moderate pick. I like the characters, but the villains were extremely disjointed.

Ineke remains introduced primarily by her tattoos. It came up in three chapters this time. The way Bishop clearly believes the very existence of these tattoos is both sexy and intimidating is pissing me off.

esurient They sound like perfect normal tattoos, and are discreetly invisible under normal clothing to boot. They sound like tasteful, private, personal tattoos to me, and I think it's skeezy how every character talks about them 5mo
iread2much I agree with the strange obsession about tattoos. Why does that define a person? 5mo

I‘ve been waiting with bated breath for this book. Barely into the 2nd chapter and I am not disappointed!
