Etched in Bone by Anne Bishop
“Bishop’s Novel of the Others series has truly been one of the most original and phenomenal UF series out there, so this fifth book is a bit bittersweet. While Bishop’s worldbuilding is second to none, it has been the characters and their relationships that elevate these stories into masterpieces. It appears that this will be the final Simon and Meg book (at least for now), since in her next book Bishop will turn to new characters in a different part of Thaisia. Bottom line, this is once again an epically amazing and thrilling story, but I really hope Bishop returns to continue Simon and Meg’s unforgettable journey because this didn’t feel like a finale.” — RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 stars, Top Pick!
