Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop


I liked this one a lot more than I liked Murder of Crows. It wasn't that that sequel was bad, it was just a tad boring and uncaptivating. But this was great. It had the vibe of t he first one--with lots of badassery and character development. The story and the world continues to grow and develop in a very interesting way; a way I'm unable to predict. Now, if only my ship would finally happen.

There is a reason why I keep coming back to these books, even though they are out of my normal genre AND adult. They are just so addicting. The weird story, the interesting characters, the slow burning ship that has me so damn afraid that it won't even happen. All of those things together make a truly great series.

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...

I don't know what else can be said about these characters that I, or anyone else, haven't already said. I am in love with and unhealthily attached to all of them. If any of the main characters die before this series ends, I will be a constant faucet of tears for at least a week. That being said, I really grew to love Monty in this sequel. In the previous books, I found myself wanting his chapters to be fewer and shorter. But that was not the case in this story. His chapters were extremely interesting and filled with intrigue and passion.

I barely have words for Simon and Meg anymore. They are so obviously in love and so obviously unaware of how to be in love. So I'm just gonna gif-it-out:

To be honest, I'm not super impressed with Anne Bishop's writing. It is pretty mediocre, and sometimes it feels really immature. And her jokes land like half of the time. But I have the wonderful ability to (most of the time) overlook okay writing if I love the story.
