Returning to the world of The
Others, Anne Bishop writes about this enticing
world through the eyes of another protagonist. This time we
have events that
may feel familiar to readers who have read the previous
SILENCE, as the timeline coincides with one another. I
really love it when
authors do this because it shows off their talent and
expertise. Bishop pulls
it off well, creating an interesting storyline that feels
familiar yet different at
the same time.
While some of the books have a lighter tone to them, this
one has a bit of a
darker, more serious one. I like the contrast because
readers who prefer this
style will also be able to enjoy the series. Bishop knows
how to handle tone
well and she is readily able to switch back and forth
whenever she wants to.
This is a trait that I admire and enjoy reading whenever she
change it up. WILD COUNTRY is another excellent installment
to a series
that I will never get tired of!
In this powerful and exciting fantasy set in the world of
the New York Times bestselling Others series, humans
and the shape-shifting Others will see whether they can live
side by side...without destroying one another.
There are ghost towns in the world—places where the humans
were annihilated in retaliation for the slaughter of the
One of those places is Bennett, a town at the northern end
of the Elder Hills—a town surrounded by the wild country.
Now efforts are being made to resettle Bennett as a
community where humans and Others live and work together. A
young female police officer has been hired as the deputy to
a Wolfgard sheriff. A deadly type of Other wants to run a
human-style saloon. And a couple with four foster
children—one of whom is a blood prophet—hope to find acceptance.
But as they reopen the stores and the professional offices
and start to make lives for themselves, the town of Bennett
attracts the attention of other humans looking for profit.
And the arrival of the outlaw Blackstone Clan will either
unite Others and humans...or bury them all.
