"New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop returns to her world of the Others, as humans struggle to survive in the shadow of shapeshifters and vampires far more powerful than themselves... After a human uprising was brutally put down by the Elders--a primitive and lethal form of the Others--the few cities left under human control are far-flung. And the people within them now know to fear the no-man's-land beyond their borders--and the darkness... As some communities struggle to rebuild, Lakeside Courtyard has emerged relatively unscathed, though Simon Wolfgard, its wolf shifter leader, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn must work with the human pack to maintain the fragile peace. But all their efforts are threatened when Lieutenant Montgomery's shady brother arrives, looking for a free ride and easy pickings. With the humans on guard against one of their own, tensions rise, drawing the attention of the Elders, who are curious about the effect such an insignificant predator can have on a pack. But Meg knows the dangers, for she has seen in the cards how it will all end--with her standing beside a grave.."--… (lisätietoja)

I always enjoy Anne Bishop's books but for whatever reason it took me until the 3rd book came out in this series to start reading this series. I do not know why I waited because it is now one of my favorites the characters are fascinating and its a fresh twist on what is a somewhat overdone storyline of shapeshifters. I never quite know where the story is headed but I enjoy it no matter what.

I am reviewing this book based on an ARC received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion.

I don't hate where this story ended, but I really didn't enjoy most of this book. The villain is a ridiculous straw man of an opponent. I guess I'm supposed to be rooting for his destruction throughout the book, but spending time in his head is so completely disgusting that I had a really hard time with it. These books are generally low on nuance, but this takes it to the extreme. This was also the book that pushed me a little too far with the weird chastity of the loving relationships contrasted with the more graphic descriptions of sexual violence. I don't need my books to be steamy, but it's a strange juxtaposition to have the heroine sexually assaulted by the villain while including nothing more than a kiss between the heroine and her actual love interest. The world building has also become a bit lax here (honestly, it's been a bit lax all along). I might give the author's other books a try, but I might also just say that I got enough from this series and its time to move on. ( )

A good ending to an equally good series. Lazy worldbuilding aside, these books were a really enjoyable ride. ( )

It has been proven time and again how much trouble one bad person can cause for an entire community and just how easily that trouble can get out of hand if it's not caught in time. Etched in Bone, the final book in The Others series by Anne Bishop, uses this idea as its main plot line. Communities that survived the Namid's teeth and claws are starting to rebuild. Through the efforts of Simon and Meg Lakeside Courtyard weathered the storm better than most and has managed to keep the peace between humans and Others in their small town. That fragile balance is threatened when Lieutenant Montgomery's shady brother arrives in town looking for a free ride and the Elders are curious about the effect one seemingly insignificant predator can have on a pack.

This series has become one of my favorites. I never imagined paranormal slice of life stories where humans are in constant fear of getting eaten could feel so cozy. I absolutely love these characters and this world. Twyla and Skippy stole the show for me and pulled on my heartstrings with one of the best scenes written about a youngster with disabilities that I've ever read. Monty's brother Jimmy is absolutely horrid and I couldn't wait for his comeuppance. Each of the characters have grown so much over the course of five books that they all have a place in my heart. This series is going into my reread list.

Meg and Simon's love story was wonderful. It has been the longest slow burn, understated romance and I loved every minute of it. If you are someone who enjoys a hot and steamy romance, you're going to be disappointed. For me the slow burn felt right for these characters.

This was a solid ending to the series. I'm going to miss these characters. Hopefully Ms. Bishop returns to write more about our Lakeside Courtyard someday. Or at least a short story about Skippy. I need to know now Skippy is doing! ( )

I really enjoy this series and the fifth installment did not disappoint. However, do not listen to the audiobook if can avoid it, it does a great disservice to a well-written story. ( )
