Lake Silence – Anne Bishop


Lake Silence – Anne Bishop



Ever since I binge read The Others series last year I have been a HUGE fan of Anne Bishop. I don’t think it’s a secret that I love urban fantasy/fantasy. With authors like Ilona Andrews and Nalini Singh, Patricia Briggs and now Anne Bishop, I’ve picked the best authors that are available in this genre.

Lake Silence, the 6th book of The Others series, a novel set in the same world as book 1-5, tells the story about Vicki a divorcee, struggling to bring back a rustic resort that has been given to her as part of her divorce settlement.

At this point, I have to acknowledge that whatever Anne Bishop writes, I’m going to read it. Lake Silence just cemented that by getting me out of my reading slump and keeping me engrossed and absorbed for an entire day. Yes, this novel was a one-sitting kind of read.

No disturbances, no interruption – I was in HEAVEN!!!

Anne Bishop has the skill and talent to write amazingly vibrant and colorful characters, a story arc that begs for more, and a world that enchants with possibilities and fascinating creatures. This world has me thrilled and coming back for more. I don’t know if Lake Silence is a standalone or the beginning of a new arc – all I know is that I can’t get enough of it.

Vicki was like you and me.

A regular person, who made a mistake by marrying someone that clearly wasn’t the right choice. But the choices she took after her divorce was what made all the difference. She was open minded, engaging, friendly and non judgmental. She gave a crap if the people she came into contact with were human or not. That alone separated her from the rest of the towns inhabitants. And it was noted.

Her friendly demeanor, hard working and at times artless personality made her the perfect liaison between humans and terra indigene. Of course as it always works with Anne Bishop novels, Vicki didn’t really have a say in it. The terra indigene picked her as their middlewoman – and that’s that.

The interactions between Vicki, the rest of the human cast and the terra indigene was hilarious, heart-warming and a signature of the author’s charm and ingenuity. This kind of storytelling is only available in a Anne Bishop novel. Where characters move you, enchant you and have you come back year after year.

If you love an enchanting story, where the interactions between the different species is the heart and soul of the plot. A novel that spellbinds you with characters that do the right thing even though it might get them killed. A world that has bigger and badder things hiding in the woods, watching and just waiting for you to step off the path. Where you live by the will and benevolence of a power that’s as fierce and powerful as chilling. A world that excels in bringing people, that are willing to work on a better life, together and charm your pants off.

I could go on and on about this book, series and author.

To sum it up, I would love for you to try it out.

The authors quality of writing is exceptional and her storytelling out of this world good. You’ll fall in love with her characters from the very first page. It’s a tale of monsters, good and evil, greed, hope and perseverance – what’s not to love about that?

Lake Silence – Anne Bishop


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.

    1. I honestly felt the same. I was sad having to say goodbye to my beloved Meg and Simon. But it’s obvious that the author has an amazing skill. And it’s still the same world that has enthralled me in the first 5 books. I would love to know what she has planned for the future. And I’m not entirely sure if Lake Silence is the first book in a new series or a standalone. But whatever she writes I’ll read.;-)
