Paranormal
Fiction
Pov being from all characters in the book, some more than others, in this book "Meg" and "Simon" are the main characters. They are not in a romantic relationship, they do not end up in a romantic relationship. They are two individuals who are in the story in the primary lead who become involved in each others lives. I have read this series until the 6th book "Lake Silence". There is no sex, not even a bit of sexual tension. There is a budding and possible future for a relationship.

The paranormals in this series are NOT humans who shift, humans with another "animal" in them which is a separate being. They are the first beings on the planet. They are kind of the Native Americans of the world. They started off as whatever animals they are but developed the ability to shift into human skin so they could blend in and learn about the "two-legged, clever-prey" that humans had become known to them as. They retain the "animal" sense in their human skins.
They think like wolves, crows, bears, but have also developed a bit of human thinking. However there is a huge fish out of water element when they get around humans and try to understand their motives and actions. So the idea of one of them, in the case of the primary male lead, getting into bed with a human female, it just doesn't make sense.

There are also Elemental which are basically the physical being manifestations of "Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn, Blizzard, Thunder, Fire, etc."

There are also vampires, but they are more like humans in the way they act, but are never portrayed as being "sexy".

So if you want a good paranormal suspense with relationship dynamics then this is for you.

If you are looking for a romance, then this is not for you. ( )

This book is different from most of the ones I've read that have vampires and werewolves. The Others aren't traditional versions of these creatures. There are all different forms of Others also. Some are season spirits and forms of nature and weather. It's really cool, very creative. I'll definitely be continuing this series. ( )

I'm going to have to admit that I enjoyed this book, but it was definitely a guilty pleasure. Objectively, it really has a lot of flaws. The writing is stilted and the characters are one dimensional. You can also play name the cliché when it comes to the plot. Meg is too helpless to get out of her own way, but since she immediately charms every single powerful character over to her side, it hardly matters. No one can resist poor, frail, innocent, childlike Meg (gag). The Others are set up as being more violent/strange/other than most other paranormal romance books I've read, which I thought could lead to something interesting, but by the end of this one they're already becoming more human like. All that being said, sometimes clichés are enjoyable. This hits a happy place for me in the same way that some other people enjoy Hallmark movies. I'm looking forward to the next. ( )

Exceptional concept and an exceptional story!!!
All the characters are so unique and still feel so real. Anne Bishop has made them seem real, that such a world can actually exist. I can read this book many times and every time it feels as fresh and new as I read it the first time.
The book is a little on the edgy side, as most her books are and yet they are as different from all her other series. ( )

This is a great start to a series, and I can't wait to dig into the rest. Meg is a Blood Prophet and she has spent most of her life caged and forced to create prophecies for money. She escaped and takes refuge with the Others. Unlike other urban fantasy series, in this world, the non-humans are fully in charge, and the humans are allowed to live only because they are useful. Through Meg's time with the others she forges relationships & begins to help the Others see humans as something other than meat.
