Early Review: Lake Silence by Anne Bishop

Feb 16, 2018

In this thrilling and suspenseful fantasy set in the world of the New York Times bestselling Others series, an inn owner and her shape-shifting lodger find themselves enmeshed in danger and dark secrets.

Human laws do not apply in the territory controlled by the Others--vampires, shape-shifters, and even deadlier paranormal beings. And this is a fact that humans should never, ever forget....

After her divorce, Vicki DeVine took over a rustic resort near Lake Silence, in a human town that is not human controlled. Towns such as Vicki's don't have any distance from the Others, the dominant predators who rule most of the land and all of the water throughout the world. And when a place has no boundaries, you never really know what is out there watching you.

Vicki was hoping to find a new career and a new life. But when her lodger, Aggie Crowe--one of the shape-shifting Others--discovers a murdered man, Vicki finds trouble instead. The detectives want to pin the death on her, despite the evidence that nothing human could have killed the victim. As Vicki and her friends search for answers, ancient forces are roused by the disturbance in their domain. They have rules that must not be broken--and all the destructive powers of nature at their command.


LAKE SILENCE is fantastic and mysterious. This new story arc begins with enticing new characters. The humans and Others are stilling trying to fit into the new world that arose after the Great Predation.  In this new arc we find ourselves in Sproing, a city surrounded by a vast wild country.  Vicki, a human, is trying to plant new roots after divorcing in this small village.  She becomes friends with Aggie, an Other.  When a body is found on her newly acquired property, Aggie Nielsen the terra indigene to Vicki.  Vicki will become more involved with the village led by The Sanguinati and the mysterious Ilya, who happens to be her attorney.  Bishop delivers once again a unique world with it's own set of rules.  I hope things develop between Ilya and Vicki. I have come to accept that rarely does Bishop deliver the things I want, instead she showers me with what I never knew I needed.  I can not wait to read the next book in the series by Bishop. I just can't stop reading.
