"The New York Times bestselling author of The Black Jewels Trilogy transports readers to a world of magic and political unrest-where the only chance at peace requires a deadly price... The Others freed the cassandra sangue to protect the blood prophets from exploitation, not realizing their actions would have dire consequences. Now the fragile seers are in greater danger than ever before-both from their own weaknesses and from those who seek to control their divinations for wicked purposes. In desperate need of answers, Simon Wolfgard, a shape-shifter leader among the Others, has no choice but to enlist blood prophet Meg Corbyn's help, regardless of the risks she faces by aiding him. Meg is still deep in the throes of her addiction to the euphoria she feels when she cuts and speaks prophecy. She knows each slice of her blade tempts death. But Others and humans alike need answers, and her visions may be Simon's only hope of ending the conflict. For the shadows of war are deepening across the Atlantik, and the prejudice of a fanatic faction is threatening to bring the battle right to Meg and Simon's doorstep..."--

I love this series!

Loved book 3, "Vision in Silver." This is not a stand alone book as the author switches 'voices' between multiple first-person characters. Although it is pretty clear whose 'head' you are in, it can get confusing as this book has almost doubled with new characters. If you are a fan of Anne Bishop, then you know her tendency for her characters to go a little overboard with exposition & internal dialogue right in the middle of danger or increased tension. That hasn't changed. But despite that, I LOVE the world Anne created in this series & love the characters.

What it feels like to be different.

The third installment in Anne Bishop's wonderful world building series, The Others, continues to follow the building tensions between humans and the earth native Others who dominate this alternate Earth. As the first blood prophet in decades to survive outside an institution, Meg Corbyn begins to record and share her experiences with other newly freed blood prophets. Meanwhile, shape-shifter and courtyard leader, Simon Wolfgaurd, struggles with both subversive activities and increasing violence from the Humans First and Last movement, while still exploring pathways to peaceful co-existence. A terrific series.

This is book #3 in "The Courtyard of the Others" series & picks up directly after "Murder Of Crows". There's not much point in going into detail as a new reader won't be starting here & the plot lines are too intricate.
Just know if you're a fan of the first two, this is a must read.
Big, BIG trouble is brewing, most of it due to the machinations of the Humans First & Last movement. But they have no idea who they are really dealing with. Besides the Others in the courtyard, we begin to see hints the terre indigene who live in the wild areas have been paying attention & don't fully agree with Simon's attempts to create an integrated society.
Meg's sisters from the compound who were rescued in the last book have difficulty adjusting to freedom & with very mixed results.
Monty's personal life gets a larger story line as he attempts to gain custody of his daughter. And, of course, the relationship between Meg & Simon continues to evolve. But it's almost a side story here. You get the sense the author is using this instalment to build tension by placing various characters like chess pieces on a board in preparation for what is coming.
There's a big showdown on the horizon between humans & the others. How & where it will happen is anyone's guess at this point (2 more books in the series) . And Bishop doesn't shy away from killing off prominent characters so we'll all have to wait impatiently for the next one to see who is left standing.
