With five books in the Others series, Anne Bishop
has been able to take
readers on a magical ride filled with shifters and a blood
IN BONE is the latest installment and I would highly recommend
reading this series in order. If you are new to Bishop's
work, then keep in
mind that although this is urban fantasy series, there is a
touch of romance
in it as well.
For me, the romance between Simon and Meg has been something
captured my interest. Don't expect an epic love story
because that's not the
kind of stories that Anne Bishop writes. Instead, she tends
to build her
relationships slowly, and I know I'm not the only one who
has been dying to
see more from Simon and Meg.
The world that Bishop has created here is complex yet at the
quite simple. There's a lot of politics and conflict, but
the dynamics are
surprisingly basic and I don't mean that in a bad way.
Sometimes it's nice to
stick to what is simple because what is what works the best.
I do think
Bishop has something great on her hands.
Fans of Patricia Briggs and Kim Harrison will enjoy this
series. Rife with
paranormal politics and a touch of romance, ETCHED IN BONE
by Anne Bishop is sure to be
a win for readers!
