    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 a...

    Thank you to Berkley/Ace/Daw and Netgalley for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.I'd like to start with a cheer! I am SO glad that Anne Bishop was able to continue writing in the world of the Others. The first five books are stories surrounding Lakeside and involving Simon Wolfgard and Meg Corbyn, cassandra sangue. And they're fantastic. Book six, Lake Silence, picks up with a new set of characters in a new area of the wor...

    I find it hard to review the books of this series because I have fallen in love with this world and the people that populate it to the point where I am not sure I am writing an unbiased review anymore. It still feels like I am reading a genre that is only populated by this series.The writing alone is so exceptional that it pulls you in from the first page, I was addicted by the 15% mark and the story was revealed a bit at a time so you got to kno...

    4.5 Stars!I have been in love with Simon, Meg, Vlad, Tessa and all the vanguard in the Others series since the very first book and when Simon and Meg's journey ended at book five, I wasn't ready to say goodbye to them. I don't think anyone that has read the magical, slightly horrifying world that Bishop has created in the Others, was. How can one ever be ready to say goodbye to beloved characters? Finding out book six would be a spin off of this ...

    First book without Meg and the gang. Yes, some of the "vampires" we know from the first 5 books are present in LS, but generally it's a new group of characters. I enjoyed most of them, but unfortunately, I didn't care for the main protagonist...Vicki.I get what Ms. Bishop was trying to do: create another vulnerable character like Meg was in the beginning and let her grow throughout the book/series. The author chose a protagonist who is an unattra...

    Full review is here on my blog.I really, really like the world of The Others, so naturally when this popped up on NetGalley, I was more than happy to send in a request for it. This one is a spin-off of the first five books in the series. It takes place in the same world but a different part of it with different characters.We start out meeting Vicki, a woman who recently went through a very nasty divorce after 10 years of terrible marriage. She ha...

    DISCLAIMER: I had the marvelous opportunity to read an early, unpublished version of Lake Silence for review, it may not be quite the same as the one currently for sale, though I seriously doubt the basic story will change. Some of the plot points may shift.When I read Etched in Bone, the last of the series about the Others, I was truly sad. I enjoy that world, and was delighted when I heard rumors there were two more stand-alone books coming. Sa...

    Did I miss Meg? Did I miss Simon? Nah, just like I predicted: I'm howling with joy!
  • Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog)
    Meg and Simon’s story has wrapped up in the last book so I was very curious to see what Anne Bishop was going to do with this book. LAKE SILENCE features a new heroine named Vicki DeVine and she was a very nice surprise. I really took a liking to her character. If you enjoy the humorous characters of the first books in the series, then I’m sure you’ll get on with Vicki’s style of humor and personality. I feel like she’s the brighter cou...

    It didn't wow me but it was good. 3.5 or 4 stars. RTC2/7/18: 2nd read. Really enjoyed it, even more than the 1st read, though parts of the story strongly echo Written in Red and Meg's emotional journey. 4 stars
  • Dianne
    She thought she had gained her freedom from a monstrous husband and a fresh start in life. What the kind-hearted, slightly klutzy Vicki discovered was a dead body and a world where human law was superseded by Others law and justice comes in many forms. The Jumble was part of Vicki’s settlement, purported to be a potentially valuable resort lodge nestled in the woods near Lake Silence. It was in the fine print that Vicki learns she has been take...

    4.5 starsAs spellbinding as the first 5 books. The author excels in crafting a plot and characters that are as engrossing as fascinating. I can't wait for more. Full review to come.For more of my reviews:My Blog: Book Twins ReviewsFacebook Blog PageTwitterSubscribe to Blog

    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.I enjoyed this book. After reading the earlier books in the series last year, I was really curious about this newest installment. I knew going into this book that it was set in the same world as the previous books but it would feature different characters. I was relieved to find that I liked this new group of characters right away. I had a really nice time with this story.Vicki is a r...

    UPDATED: US Giveaway of Lake Silence (3/12/18-3/18/18): of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum Silence is the first book of a new spin-off series set in world of The Others by Anne Bishop, therefore making a great place to jump on board if you’ve ever played with the idea of checking these novels out. While the story takes place in a different town following a group...

    I was excited to read this book, wanted to see more of this world, even as sad as I was to leave Meg and Simon behind. And sure...there were many times I was like, "oh this is the Meg/Simon/Humans as bad guys/etc" of the book. Yet the characters were all so different. I liked Vicki, the plain human who is turning the community on it's head. Vicki knows about the Others and when she moves she makes it a point to learn what she can and can not do t...

    ARC from Netgalley and the publisher3.5 starsI loved the first five books of The Others series so much and the cast of characters living in Lakeside that I was really nervous to dive into Lake Silence. It was bittersweet as well as exciting, and I’m happy to say the residents of Lake Silence won me over in the end. Right off the bat I will say that Vicki feels like a Meg 2.0 to me – a female who has been abused and is skittish around men, tho...
  • Meels
    Vicki is no Meg, it’s true. But, I still liked her. Sometimes I wanted to slap her and tell her to wake up, but I liked her, and I LOVED Aggie & Cougar & Conan & Ilya & Ineke & Julian & the lady of the Lake & Aiden... Even Fred & Larry. Lots of great new characters with the same fun quirks and TI ways of thinking.This one was more of a murder mystery, and you get to see more of and hear more from The Elders in the Lake Silence area. That was fu...
  • Karen
    Anne Bishop has managed to introduce a whole new set of characters for us to meet and start to become attached to, in a world that is familiar yet in a place that is not. It’s perfect because, though we know a lot of the terms, like terra indigene or elders, the rules have changes some since the Great Predation, some humans still go along blindly (like idiots) but most understand and fear. It's nice to see the scarier side, and the humans who ...
  • Laura (Kyahgirl)
    4.5/5; 5 stars; AI really, really enjoyed this book. That was a nice surprise because I half expected it to be the drawing out of more story threads centered around the Lakeside Courtyard and its characters from books 1-5. It wasn’t that. This book is in a complete different community with its owns characters; human, Other, Elder, Elemental. The world building done in the first books enhanced my enjoyment but I could see a person starting the s...

    In the sixth book, we leave Meg and Simon behind and travel across Thaisa to a small rustic lakeside resort bordering the small-town of Sproing. The resort sits along the shore of Lake Silence. Here we meet Vicki DeVine. I liked Vicki, she is damaged but has a strong moral compass and inner strength. It will be interesting to see her grow and trust.  Vicki came by her little resort through a divorce settlement and it comes with some strict ru...

    **ARC provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review**"...they might have learned to mimic human behavior better than any other form of terra indigene, but they were, and always would be, predators. And human would always be their prey..."The Urban Fantasy genre has a very special place in my heart, and it's very difficult for me to find new ones that keep me interested. I started The Others series immediately after the first book Written...

    Fabolous beginning!When Meg and Simon's arc was done, I was so sad to see one of my favorite series EVER come to an end. So many of the characters had endeared themselves into my heart but Anne Bishop knew she had gold in her hands (or I should say in her brain) and she was willing to continue the series to the great happiness of this reader.I have anxiously been waiting for Lake Silence, a continuation of the same world with different main chara...
  • Christy LoveOfBooks
    I love this series so much! Bishop definitely has a certain formula she prefers to use in her books that works so well! I hope there's more to come in The Others world. RTC!
