For fans of Anne Bishop's The Others series, "Wild Country" is unmissable. I've been waiting and waiting for this book. The world of the Others is enthralling. There's a large cast of characters here and I didn't get a chance to fall in love with particular ones before the story moved on to the next one, shifting and shifting focus. But the overall depiction of the town of Bennett and recovery from disaster was fascinating.
This was an amazing story set in Bennet about humans, the Others , Inuits etc I devoured this book within 12 hours, couldn't put it down. A story that showcases the duplicity of humans, there is sadness, there is humour & I cant wait to read the next story. I hope we will see a return to this town to see the ongoing story. Highly recommended
Wow this story was enthralling and so hard to put down. From the Other's world and connected to Lakeside and Sweetwater it was a fantastic story. The storyline was captivating and like the other Other's stories attention grabbing. The characters were intriguing and varied with a great mixture of human and Other as well as Elders thrown in. Anne Bishop has once again written a brilliant and entertaining book.
I’ve followed Anne Bishop as a writer for many years beginning with her House of Gaian series, then the Blood Jewels, the Ephemera titles and lately the Others and now the latest two Lake Silence and World of the Others. Of these two I prefer the latter as it extends previous plots and characters. For any new reader I would recommend that they read the first series of the Others to begin with although it is not absolutely necessary.
I have read every book in this series and I want each book to go on forever. I sincerely hope that there is a lot more to come. The story grabs you from the start. The interaction between the others who only see problems and solutions in black and white. The humans are trying to work with the others to create a safe haven for both to live and work together. See what happens when evil greedy people try to take their town. Incredible read.
