The World of the Others, Book 2
Synopsis: There are ghost towns in the world—places where the humans were annihilated in retaliation for the slaughter of the shape-shifting Others.
One of those places is Bennett, a town at the northern end of the Elder Hills—a town surrounded by the wild country. Now efforts are being made to resettle Bennett as a community where humans and Others live and work together. A young female police officer has been hired as the deputy to a Wolfgard sheriff. A deadly type of Other wants to run a human-style saloon. And a couple with four foster children—one of whom is a blood prophet—hope to find acceptance.
But as they reopen the stores and the professional offices and start to make lives for themselves, the town of Bennett attracts the attention of other humans looking for profit. And the arrival of the Blackstone Clan, outlaws and gamblers all, will uncover secrets…or bury them.
Review: I was really looking forward to discovering this new novel. If I had really had a great time with the previous volume, it’s true that I didn’t loved it as much as the Meg Corbyn’s volumes. However, I must say that I was completely delighted with this one, and I am more than happy to have discovered this story!
I was all the more delighted as we fall, this time, to Bennett where we find some characters we had already met! On top of that, we hear a little more about Meg, Simon, or Hope and I was really happy to know what was happening to them!
As I said, we find the town of Bennett, which is beginning to be repopulated by as many people as terra indigena. But that’s also a problem, because while some people are really looking for a job and a place to live, others are only looking for profit and see in Bennett another opportunity to get rich. It is in this context that we discover different characters to whom it is very easy to get attached to. How can we resist Jana, this new detective, who came to enforce the law. Or Virgil, Jesse, Tobias, and all the others! And what about all these touching little dogs? We can’t resist them!
Yes, Anne Bishop has a lot of ideas for this series and I was really carried away from the beginning without being able to let go! It was a great novel and I’m conquered! So I’m even more curious to read more now! I was kept in suspense throughout the story, especially towards the end which was really full of suspense! I highly recommend it!!!!!!!
