Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m waiting on……
Etched in Bone by Anne Bishop
Publication: March 17th 2017
Genres: Adult Fiction, Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, Supernatural
New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop returns to her world of the Others, as humans struggle to survive in the shadow of shapeshifters and vampires far more powerful than themselves…
After a human uprising was brutally put down by the Elders—a primitive and lethal form of the Others—the few cities left under human control are far-flung. And the people within them now know to fear the no-man’s-land beyond their borders—and the darkness…
As some communities struggle to rebuild, Lakeside Courtyard has emerged relatively unscathed, though Simon Wolfgard, its wolf shifter leader, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn must work with the human pack to maintain the fragile peace. But all their efforts are threatened when Lieutenant Montgomery’s shady brother arrives, looking for a free ride and easy pickings.
With the humans on guard against one of their own, tensions rise, drawing the attention of the Elders, who are curious about the effect such an insignificant predator can have on a pack. But Meg knows the dangers, for she has seen in the cards how it will all end—with her standing beside a grave.
Why am I waiting?
I’m obsessed, I admit it. I really need help because I’ve reread this series 3 times (twice since July), and I can’t get over how creative and detailed it is. From the characters to the laws that govern the people. Human law doesn’t apply in certain parts of this world, and Bishop does a great job with bringing out the best and worst parts of humanity. But let’s be honest, we are all team Others. The humans in this book make me sick. They want to take and take and take, when the land doesn’t even belong to them. I love the terra indigene, even if they are scary when provoked. I just want Simon and Meg to fall in love (well, it seems they already are in love but don’t recognize what it is), and live HEA. I’m scared. That description is not helping my nerves! Whose grave will Meg be standing beside?
If you haven’t started this series, I can’t recommend it enough. Seriously, go and read these books. What are you waiting on this week?
