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…
Vision in Silver is the third book in the series and shows just how integrated amongst the Others Meg is; and indeed to those living at the Courtyard she is simply “our Meg”. There's a strong sense of change in the air as the Humans First and Last movement are subverting opinions and forcing people to take sides but you just know their actions will not go unpunished. Humans acting more evil than human and yet the “clever meat" have surely forgotten just who the apex predators really are.
This is a fabulous series and a must read for fans of urban fantasy. I love that the Others are not the usual shifters we read about but more animal than not. If you expect inner wolves or suchlike, forget that idea as Ms Bishop has a unique take that allows these characters to express themselves in ways that had me chuckling out loud. You will never look at buying a house the same way again!!
This book felt like more of an ensemble piece as it's not just about Meg and it's interesting to find out just how far the Others will go to protect Meg and her Pack. This is building up to what could be a truly monstrous conclusion but I suspect the journey is far from over. These characters are evolving and leading the way is Simon, whose leadership is forward thinking, and yet there are still those occasions when his instincts tell him to bite!
Oh yes, Ms Bishop knows how to write a gripping story which at times had me hating my own species but what is humanity? Is it simply being born human or showing humanity? Meg is human and Simon is most definitely Other, but things are changing and I can't help but feel just the touch of a hand will open up a whole new can of worms!
Bottom line, get this series!
