The World of Silence

Review From User :

Vicki DeVine took one thing away from her divorce, the Jumble a resort on Lake Silence. Unused for years, Vicki renovates it and opens its cabins for rent. Her first resident is Aggie Crowe, an Other.

When Aggie finds a dead body, Vicki calls the human authorities. This brings the human authorities onto the Jumble, were Vicki quickly learns is an Other's domain. Someone is after the Jumble and Vicki will do whatever she can to keep the Jumble and the inhabitants (the Others) safe. With her actions she quickly secures the respect and devotion of the Others.

Veering away from a story based in the Lakeside Courtyard with Meg, Cassandra Sangue, and Simon Wolfgard, as leads, Bishop delves in with a collection of fresh new characters, a few unfamiliar Other species we haven't seen before and a riveting tale that will have you mystified. Don't fret, Vicki, coming out of an abusive marriage and learning to stand on her own, is an outstanding, warm-hearted, and as genuine as the come; a lead you can really get behind. I have to admit I'm loving this new direction.

There is something about Anne Bishop's writing and The Others world that she has created that completely captivates me! Utterly Enthralling! It is one of the reads that you want to lock yourself away from the real world so nothing can distract you from immersing yourself deep into the story-telling.

When I finished Lake Silence, I immediately re-read the entire series ending with a second reading of Lake Silence, YES, it is that GOOD!

I received this ARC copy of Lake Silence from Berkley Publishing Group. This is my honest and voluntary review. Lake Silence is set for publication Mar. 6, 2018.
