Wild Country – Anne Bishop


Wild Country – Anne Bishop


Getting a new book by Anne Bishop is becoming one of my most highly anticipated things of the year. When I started reading her The Others series exactly two years ago, December of 2016, I had no idea how much this series is going to mean to me. I just recently binge read the first five books again, and loved them as much as the first time around.

Wild Country is a kind of continuation of the original five books. Because of that I wouldn’t recommend jumping into this book without reading the other books first. Start with Written in Red.

Now even though I love her books, especially this series, Wild Country wasn’t my favorite and it’s easy to pinpoint why.

In the first five books Meg and Simon were pretty much the main characters. And I realized quickly that I need at least one or two main characters that I can really connect with. Characters that carry the story, that are the center a novel is built around.

All of this doesn’t mean that I didn’t have fun reading Wild Country. I loved getting back to one of my most beloved series. lI actually devoured the book!!

I just would have liked it done differently. Because Wild Country was a story told by many different cast members. Even though all were important to the story, this kind of style actually prevented me from really connecting with a specific character – if that makes any sense.

The next thing that worries me is that I don’t really know what the author has planned for the future. Her last novel Lake Silence seems to be a standalone in THE OTHERS series. And right now I don’t know if she will continue her story arc in Bennett or move on.

I would love to get back to the people in Bennett. One book isn’t enough to really get to know them all, especially since most of them were new introductions and with Lakeside we had 5 books to really get to know the entire cast.

I’m also interested to see what other connections and relationships are being built between the terra indigene and humans. These mixed groups of characters are something I enjoy the most. How everyone adapts, how they learn from one another and build friendships on trust, kindness and support – even if the odds are against them.

Because what I love the most about this series, is that it’s all about good vs evil. It’s one of these stories that will never grow old, and Anne Bishop has a wonderful and heart-warming way of spinning stories that I love to devour each and every time.


Wild Country – Anne Bishop


Wild Country - Anne BishopThere are ghost towns in the world—places where the humans were annihilated in retaliation for the slaughter of the shape-shifting Others.

One of those places is Bennett, a town at the northern end of the Elder Hills—a town surrounded by the wild country. Now efforts are being made to resettle Bennett as a community where humans and Others live and work together. A young female police officer has been hired as the deputy to a Wolfgard sheriff. A deadly type of Other wants to run a human-style saloon. And a couple with four foster children—one of whom is a blood prophet—hope to find acceptance.
But as they reopen the stores and the professional offices and start to make lives for themselves, the town of Bennett attracts the attention of other humans looking for profit. And the arrival of the Blackstone Clan, outlaws and gamblers all, will uncover secrets…or bury them.

  1. I haven’t read any books by Anne Bishop in years, I think the last one I read was Queen of the Darkness, don’t really know why I stopped reading her books because I used to love her stories. Anyway, maybe I should check out this series. Great review! 🙂

    1. This series has catapulted itself on the very top of my favorite list. I reread it last year and loved it as much as the first time, and already see multiple rereads coming. I read some of her older books in the Black Jewel series but I didn’t connect with those the same way as I did with her Others series. Would love for you to try them 😀

        1. YES!!!! Hope you’ll enjoy it!! It’s definitely slow burn, and it’s all about the characters daily life in the courtyard. It’s not as action filled as other UF – but I adore it 😍😍
