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…
Anne Bishop has once again created an amazing story. Vision in Silver is the third book in the “Others” series. In this book, Meg ‘sees’ something that could change how the terra indigene and humans work with each other. But thanks to Meg, Simon looks at a few of the humans differently. They are not just prey anymore, they are a part of Meg’s human pack. Even though he works with them there are other forces out there that could completely wipe out the humans for good.
An absolutely amazing book that I enjoy reading and one of few books that I look forward to continue reading. I absolutely love Meg and Simon and their relationship with each other, even though it confuses me at times (like it does with Simon). I also worry about Meg and what might happen to her. Meg is a Cassandra Sangue, blood prophet or sweet blood by the Sanguinati. Because of this it takes about a hundred cuts before it either kills her or makes her crazy. But I stay positive and hope for the best and I guess we will find out later when Bishop’s next books come out. In this book Simon has greatly changed compared to when we first met him in Written in Red. Before he could only stand humans for short periods of time while running the bookstore. Then Meg shows up and his life has flipped and hopefully for the greater good of Thaisia and possibly all of Namid.
In this book Humans First and Last Movement is found everywhere. Because of the HFL movement it is causing a strain with the local terra indigene and the humans that are considered “wolf lovers” and those that are for HFL. On the bright side the few humans that work at the courtyard are part of the human pack, which makes them safe against the terra indigene. Besides the HFL this book focuses on a new Cassandra Sangue that was saved in the second book at the same institution that Meg escaped. This new girl along with Meg’s help could help save many other young girls that are struggling to live in outside world.
If you have not read the first two books then you better get to your library or bookstore and pick it up. You will not regret it. The story is gripping from page one all the way to the last page. It was saddening when I finally reached the last page but now I get to look forward for the next book, no matter how long it might take. Hopefully not too long!
I was lucky to win this book in the goodreads giveaway. Thank you goodreads!
