Anne Bishop’s Vision in Silver is a RT Book Reviews Top Pick!

Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop

Get ready to do the happy dance! It’s time to revisit Namid, Bishop’s extraordinarily gripping world with its unforgettable, haunting characters. Award-winning Bishop is fashioning a richly textured series whose reimagined Earth is so unique, it is a character itself. However, it is the distinctive protagonists who make these novels so totally addicting and completely satisfying. The hard part is waiting for the next installment!

Summary: Change is coming to the continent of Thaisia, but whether those changes are for good or ill remains to be seen. Now that the blood prophets have been freed from their imprisonment and virtual slavery, will these troubled girls be able to survive on their own? Blood prophet and Lakeside resident Meg Corbyn has a vision that suggests not…and that she may just need to blaze a trail to lead them forward. Then trouble arrives in the form of a small human girl when Nathan Wolfgard finds Lt. Montgomery’s daughter, Lizzy, alone on a train heading for Lakeside. And when Nathan smells blood on Lizzy’s stuffed “boo bear,” it seems like something terrible might have happened to Elayne, Lizzy’s mother and Montgomery’s ex-lover. Machinations orchestrated from across the ocean are fomenting dangerous events, which could upend the current detente between humans and the Others. — RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 stars, Top Pick!

Library Journal on Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop

Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop

VERDICT: This is a strong example of a midseries-building book, showing the heightening of stress without a major change in the status quo. Bishop (Murder of Crows; Daughter of the Blood) marvelously invents a rich world that is a faint echo of our own but ruled by wild inhuman creatures tied to nature and pushed to violence by the greed of humans who refuse to understand that they are not in charge. The delicate character of Meg is a fulcrum, a special human whom the Others protect, and her damaged but determined will is the key to this terrific series.

As tensions escalate between the terra indigene known as the Others and the humans who live among them, Simon Wolfgard and the Lakeside Courtyard search for a compromise that will allow peaceful coexistence. But a group called Humans First and Last are stirring up hostility toward the Others, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn is crucial to uncovering their plans before it is too late. — Library Journal
