Etched in Bone (The Others #5)
by Anne Bishop

Hardcover397 pages
Expected publication: March 7th 2017 by Roc
ISBN: 045147449X

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.


This is one of those series that I want to never end. I have grown so attached to the characters in this series, and I am not ready to say goodbye!

Even though I am sad that this series is over, I thought this was a great way to end the series. The plot of this book was one of my favorite storylines from this series. There was a lot of mystery, action, conflict and intrigue that kept me glued to the pages. Everything moved at a believable and exciting pace. I never felt like there was a dull moment in this book. 

There are so many characters in this series, and I have grown to love all of them. I liked how the author never forgot about a character and just wrote them out of the book. Each character was significant throughout the story. However, I wish Meg and Simon would have been more prominent in this book. Even though I love all of the characters, I am always greedy when it comes to Meg and Simon. I want to read about Meg and Simon 24/7.

The romance in this book KILLED me. I have shipped Meg and Simon since book one, and all of their romantic moments in this book that made me swoon and smile. THEY ARE PERFECT FOR EACH OTHER!!! I WILL SHIP THEM UNTIL THE DAY I DIE.

However, I wish there would have been more romantic moments between Meg and Simon. I was happy with the moments that were in this book, but I was hoping for a little bit more. 

I thought this was a great way to end this series. The ending of this book left me wanting more, but I think that is because I never want to leave these characters. I want to read about Meg, Simon, and this world for the rest of my life! I know fans of this series will adore this book.
