  • Jilly
    I wasn't sure that I would read this book because I was sorely disappointed in how Meg and Simon's story ended. We waited 5 books and only got a kiss? That pissed me off. Of course, one of the people who commented on my review of that book pretty much called me a sick pervert for wanting there to have been wolfy sex, so that was a bit of a consolation. I do love it when I can get people to hate on me when I write silly reviews as a hobby. Of cour...

    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...

    Lake Silence was surprisingly good. Not that I didn’t think Anne Bishop could write another great book. But I was surprised how much I liked it after spending 5 books with other characters and then completely shifting to an entirely new cast. The reason was that everything felt familiar if slightly different, like a trip to your favorite store in a different state.Vicky is working on bringing a run down resort next to the wild back into being 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...

    Review to come.Previous thoughts:(view spoiler)[6/21/17 edit- oh hey look, a cover.3/11/17 edit- so there's a description now. After Etched in Bone I'm not all that excited for this. I'll give it a chance though.I thought #5 was the last one in this series? Maybe it's just the last of Meg's story ... ? (hide spoiler)]

    NOT TO BE DRAMATIC OR ANYTHING BUT THIS BOOK WAS A GODDAMN WELCOME BACK PRESENT TO ME AND I LOVED EVERY SINGLE DELICIOUS BIT OF IT. Lake Silence is the sixth book in, The Others series, but an almost completely different book with a whole new cast of characters-- a spinoff. The fifth book in the series, Etched in Bone, left a little to be desired, especially when I wanted more of the world and characters after being invested in them for like FIVE...

    Full review now posted!I love this series so much. And this installment didn't disappoint.I can’t even tell you how long it’s been since a book legitimately caused me to lose sleep, or consumed my thoughts to such extremes that I became poor company because literally all I wanted to do was read and read and read some more. That used to be my standard mode of operation when reading anything, but for the past several months even the best of boo...
  • Deborah Obida
    I love it! The only thing I don’t like about this book is the protagonist’s similarities to Meg, she is the worse version of Meg, fat, anxiety issues, no confidence and a host of other issues.Apart from the above, this book is as good as the previous in the series. Good writing, the usual multiple POVs, amazing characters and the like.Am not surprise, Anne Bishop is yet to disappoint me, I can’t wait for the next book in the series, I wish ...
  • Douglas Meeks
    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...

    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...

    This is another installment in Bishop's brilliant world of The Others. This one doesn't follow Meg and Simon (though they are mentioned), but you will love the new characters (Vicki! Aggie!) and the new types of Elders are intriguing. Bishop world builds like the expert she is - every detail is in perfect place. You do not need to read the previous books in the series to enjoy this one, but you'll definitely be enticed to pick them up as well. Hi...

    I was thrilled to visit the world of The Others again with Lake Silence, but was a little unsure if I’d like it as much as the previous books that centered on Meg and Simon, and the Lakeside Courtyard residents. I will say that Meg and Simon continue to be my favorite, because, hello, romance junkie here, but Lake Silence was captivating! And there is a hint of a romance to come. Wasn’t sure if this was going to be a standalone, but I just ch...
  • Mlpmom (Book Reviewer)
    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 ...
  • Ian
    Well this was disappointing.I was excited to get this. I've been waiting for it for months. It finally arrives.And it's basically fan service. It's a victory lap. It was moderately entertaining in the same way playing Solitaire on the computer is moderately entertaining. I mean you wouldn't give up dinner with friends for it but it beats working. I'll read book two and hope for the best.

    This was an interesting addition to the world of the Others. It had a lonely feel of not quite a mystery, not quite literary fiction, just of a woman alone out in a wooded community. A bit different from her previous books in the series, although we do get to experience the Others, which is always a treat. Greedily hoping to see a teeny bit of Meg and Simon in the next books :)Please excuse typos/name misspellings. Entered on screen reader.

    Did I miss Meg? Did I miss Simon? Nah, just like I predicted: I'm howling with joy!

    4.5- audiobookExcellent narrationI didn't expect to enjoy this spin off. I thought the series would fall into dullsville without Meg and the pack. I was wrong! I didn't even miss her I was so wrapped up in these newish characters (a few came from the original series)and their section of the world. There are so many new beings, my favorite had to be the Sproings I pictured them as a Porg (Star Wars) like beastie, so cute. The vampire, who happened...

    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...

  • 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...

    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...

    I loved the first couple of books in this series and then started not feeling the love by books #4 and 5. I went into this book with low expectations but was pleasantly surprised. This book packs the freshness and world building appeal that the first books in the series had. I found myself pulled into Ms Bishop's world, loving the characters, loving the plot and didn't want to stop reading.A few negatives is that it does have a bit of a re-spin o...

    I loved the first book in the Others series but became disillusioned with the series when it became clear that the traits of the main character weren't of the character, but instead of her whole species. Also the gender roles in the series became increasingly on-the-nose 1950s-essentialist. However, I did like it enough to give the series another go when it moved away from the setting of the first five books. And here we are.Vicki DeVine is an ea...

    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
