Heroic Hearts is dedicated to Rachel Caine, who was supposed to be a contributor before her passing. This anthology is filled with some of my favorite authors and narrators, so naturally I devoured their stories about heroes. Whether you listen or read, this one is a keeper.
🎧 Crowbones Anne Bishop
We are back at the Jumble, a rustic resort located in the Other’s territory. The resort on Silence Lake is run by human, Vicki DeVine. It’s the other’s version of Halloween, called Trickster Night, and human guests have arrived to experience the fun. Only things turn deadly when Crowbones’ appears, the Crowgard’s version of the bogeyman. A suspenseful mystery with characters I love that kept me listening past my bedtime.
Wild Country by Anne Bishop
You know a book/series is a winner when you finish an eighteen hour audio and feel depressed because it’s over! Such was the case with Wild Country by Ann Bishop, the second book in the World of Others and seventh in the Others series.
Lake Silence by Anne Bishop
Lake Silence by Anne Bishop is the sixth book in the Others series and one of my most anticipated books for 2018. I was nervous leaving beloved characters behind, but I was in good hands as Bishop transported me to the small rustic resort near Lake Silence and introduced me to a new heroine, humans, and others. Lake Silence was brilliant from beginning to end. I cannot wait for more.
Etched in Bone by Anne Bishop
If you have been following Caffeinated then you know I am a huge fan of the Others series by Anne Bishop. I own the series in all formats available (expect paperback) and must first listen to the narration performed by Alexandra Harris before rereading the hardcover edition. Obsessed? Maybe, but I love the world and characters Bishop has created. ETCHED IN BONE, the fifth novel and the last novel featuring the characters from Lakeside takes us back to the Courtyard as humans, and the others live side by side.
Marked in Flesh by Anne Bishop
Marked in Flesh by Anne Bishop is the fourth book in the urban fantasy series The Others. With brilliant world building and unique characters, I devoured this and already I am craving book five. Complex, relevant and captivating Marked in Flesh once again transported me to Thasia.
