B&N SFF on Lake Silence

Lake Silence by Anne Bishop

“Anne Bishop blazed onto the genre scene in the late 1990s with the Black Jewels Trilogy, a fantasy epic filled with violence, blood, and revenge that somehow mostly leaves readers with lingering impressions of its beautiful empathy, kindness, and impish sense of humor. This deeply affecting mixture won the hearts of many fans then (including mine), and remains her signature today. In this sense, her new urban fantasy LAKE SILENCE fits perfectly into her bibliography.

Bishop has always been skilled at building playful, enticing worlds, and she’s filled this one with some of her best characters yet… Fantasy trappings aside, there is a deep emotional core to Bishop’s books…

The power of community is important too—if there’s anything LAKE SILENCE tells us, it’s that getting through a tough situation literally takes a village—a village full of people who probably don’t look like you, act like you, or have your same values. You might not like some of them—you might even have to forget that you were taught to look at them as less than human. But you won’t survive without the village, so you may as well get on with figuring out how to deal with it. Because the Lady of the Lake is watching. And she’s pissed.” — Barnes & Noble SFF

Lake Silence is a RT Book Reviews Top Pick!

Lake Silence by Anne Bishop

“Although award-winning Bishop’s amazing new UF book is not about beloved characters Meg and Simon, it is thankfully still set in the world of the Others. Bishop moves the action and story to a tiny village adjacent to Lake Silence. The richness of the world that Bishop has created is truly impressive, and the perspectives of the Others, including their view on humanity, makes these stories unique and unforgettable. While this reviewer is still hoping for additional Meg and Simon books, visiting Sproing and is fascinating inhabitants is also habit-forming! Bishop delivers again!” — RT Book Reviews, 4.5 stars, Top Pick!

Booklist on Lake Silence

Lake Silence by Anne Bishop

“Bishop’s newest installment in the bestselling Others series (after Etched in Bone, 2017) is nothing short of nail-biting fun…One human bridging the gap with the Others is Vicki DeVine, a strong but battered woman who received a rustic resort near Lake Silence in a recent divorce settlement from her abusive ex-husband. Vicki restores the resort, and her business provides a safe haven for the Others and humans to learn about one another on neutral ground. But when Vicki’s ex and his cronies set a dangerous plot in motion to take back the resort, the humans quickly realize that the Others are in control—and will go to any lengths to remove the human threat. What follows is a fast-paced story unfolding against a fantasy backdrop that readers looking for a little bit of mystery to unravel will enjoy.” — Booklist
