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 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.
I thought I would share a list of some of my most anticipated releases for 2016. These are all must haves. Books that have me giddy with anticipation and ones that I know I will devour on release day.
Vision in Silver is the third book in Anne Bishop’s Other series. I love this series so hard it may be classified as extreme fangirling. I own the series is every format. Generally I listen to the audio version first and then read it. I have listened to the first two books twice and read them once. This is unprecedented as I am not generally one who does re-reads outside of a few classics. If you have not read/listened to this series, you are missing out.
Murder of Crows is the second book in The Others urban fantasy series by Anne Bishop and I chose to listen to the audio version. Alexandra Harris, the narrator, did a stellar job of giving the characters voice, and I once again I gave up my life for two days to consume this. Bishop is brilliant and I am in awe of her world. Mini review: Epic, complex, dark, light and brilliant.
Thanks to following book review blogs I stumbled upon some amazing reviews of Written in Red by Anne Bishop. To: Loupe @ Hot Listens, Maja @ Nocturnal Library and Carmel @ Rabid Reads…I thank you from the bottom of my heart. To say I loved Written in Red would be an understatement. To say I was obsessed with listening to it would ring closer to the truth. I listen to the eighteen hour and thirty-two minute audio in less than three days! When I wasn’t listening I was thinking, obsessing and talking about it. Mini review: Compelling, magical and engaging. Brilliant, breathtaking and world-building euphoria.
