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…

 

review

So I actually wrote two reviews for this book. The first one was not very flattering. Then I discovered that this book is not the final book of the series! So, I decided to give it some time and then re-read Vision in Silver. I am so so glad that I did. Initially I wanted to give this book like a 2 star rating, and that’s unheard of for Anne Bishop! I was so so disappointed and it was hard to separate that even once I found out that there were 2 more books in the series. So waiting 2 months and re-reading the book was absolutely the right choice. With that said, let me tell you why it was so wonderful!

 

Meg is just the best! I really enjoyed her through Vision in Silver, she became more aware of her effect on others. To me that was really important, because in the first few books she doesn’t really understand that these people CARE about her. There’s a scene in this book that really drives it home for her, and makes her understand that she has to think about the consequences of her actions. It was a little hard not to be mad on Meg’s behalf, because I felt like The Others overreacted in their own way.

 

I really liked that the world really opened up in this book. It was interesting to get a look at the rest of the way the world worked, and I had honestly wondered how Ocean’s etc were handled. I also liked how the overall story progressed in this book. It was heartbreaking to read about Lizzy and Boo Bear. I just can’t imagine what she was going through, and although she was a brat I still felt bad for her. I did like that we started to get some other characters introduced especially other cassandra sangue. It was interesting to see that maybe cuts weren’t necessary for some of the younger girls.

 

There were some horrendous things that happened with this book, and aside from the one incident where The Others overreacted to Meg, I felt so bad for them. Maybe they were a little savage, but I didn’t think they deserved what people tried to do. Humans truly are repulsive sometimes, the hardest part about these books is how it is so easy to see how book humans mimic real human behaviors. Anne Bishop did a fantastic job of making this third book great. I feel much better about it now that I know there will be at least 2 more books in this series. I’m giving it a full 5 out of 5 stars, because it did live up to every expectation that I had!
