Joint Review: Lake Silence by Anne Bishop

Lake Silence (The World of the Others, #1; The Others, #6)

(The World of the Others #1) (The Others #6)
Genre: Urban Fiction, Paranormal, Fantasy

Human laws do not apply in the territory controlled by the Others–vampires, shapeshifters, and paranormal beings even more deadly. 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 like Vicki’s have no distance from the Others, the dominant predators that 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’s 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 shapeshifting Others–discovers a dead body, Vicki finds trouble instead. The detectives want to pin the man’s death on her, despite the evidence that nothing human could have killed the victim. As Vicki and her friends search for answers, things get dangerous–and it’ll take everything they have to stay alive

And so we continue, this time without Meg and the gang.

I was sad to see them go….but I am also excited to see more of the world and some other folks. 

When I first read it I was all whaaat?! But now of course I knew that this would be another place, another gang. And I liked it. It was home, and yet it was not.

It was different and I liked it. I thought the cast members were fun. I liked Victoria a lot. She was a lot like Meg in some aspects, but human and abused in a different way. Poor thing. 

Really? I did not feel she was like Meg at all, except for well being prey ;) But Meg at least fought back, while Victoria retreated into herself. I really felt for Victoria. Her husband sure did a number on her.

I think Meg was stronger and was able to fight back near the end. I’m sure if we got more time with good ol’ Vickie she would toughen up. She has a lot of issues to get through. I want her to have a HEA with Julien! I loved them! They were perfect. 

True. I do think she would have toughened up! And yes I hope she gets a happy ending. She deserves it, it will take some time, but they will get there. I know they will.

Yess. I think they will. They both have loads of demons to weed through. But I think they will get together someday. Maybe we’ll see it in a future book. ;)

Nah, I doubt she will come back to them :/

Maybe through passing? Like someone comes to town for whatever reason (like stay at the resort) and we get a glimpse of them and babies? ONE CAN HOPE!

From what I know, she doesn’t even plan on returning to this universe.

Super lame. I like this universe. There is SO much she can do with it! So much story and so many characters. I get wanting to take a break and explore her other ideas/etc, but I think she needs to occasionally give us something here. Even a short story. There are still so many stories and world-building. 

She did return to another world she had not written in ages (I need to try and read that one again, I dnfed it, cos it was effed up.) So I do hope that she will return once again. I LOVE this world. LOVE.
Mmmm I have heard that before (maybe it was you lolll). I am curious though. But yes, I want more from this world. I love it. Honestly….I think the world needs another purge of bad humans. Gather them up because from this it looks like some bad ones got away. SMH. Dumb, dumb humans. Esp that ex of Vickie’s!!! Why would you cause so many issues after what JUST happened to all those towns!?

Gawd! I know. PURGE THE HUMANS. They do not deserve to live. They are so So effing stupid. UGH! They never learn. They always think they can trick the others. But at least there are always good ones too that try to live with The Others, because they know that is the only way to survive.

They are fools. The Elders are always watching. There is something always there. Like those cute little creatures that like carrots (blanking on what they are called)! So freakin’ cute. 

Blanking too. Freaky little buggers. Loved them!
I also, as always, loved the vampires! I guess it was nice not to have wolves around, even though I missed them

Yess loved the vamps!! We got to see such an array of characters and beings. It was such a treat!

I guess I just love the voice Alexandra gives the vamps :D She was amazing, as always.

The narrator is amazing as per normal. She really brings them to life! I honestly can’t imagine these stories without her. She just embodies everyone and everything! So good!

It would not be The Others without Harris! This was actually the first that I listened too and has not read. It was the one that made me want to re-read them by listening

Really? Not surprised to be honest. After reading book 1 I think I would’ve abandoned these. Not because the writing is bad or anything. But just listening to it with her just amplifies the story! 

I liked them, I really liked book 5. But listening made me love them. And that is all cos of Harris! I am glad I listened to book 6 and did not read it. It gave me a whole other experience.

I’m glad you made me listen to them after my reading book 1 ;) I am excited for the next one. 

Told you from the start ;D But I am glad you listened to book 2 and saw how wonderful the world is. I guess on to book 7 then, and I promise you, it will make me MAD. Arfghggg effing humans!

EEEEKKKKK I am nervous. LOL I feel like I’m going to be mad too! D: Dang those humans! Idiots the lot of them. 

Yay, re-listen! It has only been a year or something, lol

Hahaha. I mean - we could do a romance for Valentine’s month. ;) And save that for March! 

Whaat! But you are right, it would be more fitting with a romance. Sobs.

Also, if you have not started this series, then READ IT. LISTEN TO IT. DEVOUR IT!

Hahahaha we can debate and see how we feel ;) I am torn. I wanna get started on the next one...buuut. Sighs. :/
AND YES LISTEN TO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SOOOOOOOOO GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The end?

The end! :D
