Review: Etched in Bone by Anne Bishop

Series: The Others, #5

New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop returns to her world of the Others, as humans struggle to survive in the shadow of shapeshifters and vampires far more powerful than themselves… After a human uprising was brutally put down by the Elders—a primitive and lethal form of the Others—the few cities left under human control are far-flung. And the people within them now know to fear the no-man’s-land beyond their borders—and the darkness… 

As some communities struggle to rebuild, Lakeside Courtyard has emerged relatively unscathed, though Simon Wolfgard, its wolf shifter leader, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn must work with the human pack to maintain the fragile peace. But all their efforts are threatened when Lieutenant Montgomery’s shady brother arrives, looking for a free ride and easy pickings. 

With the humans on guard against one of their own, tensions rise, drawing the attention of the Elders, who are curious about the effect such an insignificant predator can have on a pack. But Meg knows the dangers, for she has seen in the cards how it will all end—with her standing beside a grave.

At last, Etched in Bone is the final installment in this series but not the last in this uniquely wonderful world that Bishop has created. I’m a huge fan of Anne Bishop. I’ve read most of her other books and enjoyed them immensely. She has a way of putting a different spin on the characters and worlds that she creates.

I’m so addicted to this series and I love these unforgettable characters.  I never know what to expect when reading these books. After the last book, Marked in Flesh ended, I didn’t know what to expect. I mean, there were dire consequences for the humans and the Others’ communities. I couldn’t imagine where this series would go from there. Let’s just say, one mistake could cost everything when it comes to what side the humans choose. This kept me turning the pages to see how it would all end. For better or worse. I also have to admit that I’ve been waiting forever for Meg and Simon to get together. Well, did it happen? Sorry, no spoilers here. You’ll have to read it to find out.

I’m going to miss this motley crew. I just hope the spin-off is just as good. If you’re looking for something different, you should definitely give this series a go.
