Anne Bishop è Etched in Bone reader

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 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 th NOTE I have tried to limit my superlatives but I am probably writing a review that sounds like some gushing fan instead of a top level reviewer so be it There are books you read that you hate there are some you read that you love but there is that very rare group of books that just leave you awestruck that such a book can be written some author's imagination could be so amazing and at the same time have the skill to make it into a true work of art That is where this series has taken me each time but this one just lifted me into that place where only a small handful of books can even be considered in the same class Many authors can paint a picture with their words on the page but most do it by giving us pages of descriptions that just burn off pages only those talented few can do the same thing with so few words as Anne Bishop has painted for us in this series and this book was no exception you can see the story playing out without mind numbing pages telling us the color of grass or the hardness of rocks instead you get to look inside a whole community of charactersThose of us that have been following this story since the inception when Meg stumbled into Simon's store rain soaked and looking for a job to this pinnacle of their story hate to even think about an ending but I understand this will be the last book that revolves around Simon and Meg but i hope we don't leave Lakeside Courtyard behind completely since we have a whole family of characters to loveIt is SO hard to write a review for this book since like others I just want to scream IT WAS SO AWESOME BUY IT NOW but I am guessing that is not a professional review This book as pretty much all the others just weaves itself into a story that is addicting stressful while a touch of humor is slipped in randomly along with a touch of romance and warmthIn addition to everything else the Elders want to observe the Lakeside community to help decide if they should remove humans from the world so almost everything becomes important One of the things that make this series so endearing is that in the middle of this test Meg schools the Elders in the proper way to ask for cookies which they obey it was one of a few LOL moments that breaks up the stress of this story but shows that in this class of exceptional books humor can be used to raise the bar Ilona Andrews does this exceptionally well alsoThese books are filled with secondary characters who all have a story and become than just another faceless character to fill up pages you care about these people you love the interaction of how everyone grows to care about those who they once saw as an enemy this book is the culmination of those storiesMeg is no longer cutting herself Simon can't decide what his relationship is with Meg but before the book ends he has to make some decisions and events will force him to see that she is than just a friendI won't be providing any spoilers but this was just such a great book to bring us to the point where the series can move on to other characters while hopefully not leaving us without at least an occasional glimpse at Meg and Simon as the series moves along since we hate to even think of there being no bits of their story The big thing here is that the main plot about Meg and Simon is only a part of what makes these books exceptional beyond description the interaction of the whole cast of characters and their desire to help each other is what this is all about and just leaves you breathless and almost depressed that the book ended and you have to wait another year for Bottom Line I will save all the mountains of superlatives since they still would not be able to convey how much this series is in an elite class that is outside of normal reading entertainment I rate this book only because they don't have a rating for a separate Elite Class of books so all I can do is give it 5 Stars and an acknowledgment that some books are just so far outside of a normal rating that it becomes almost meaningless

eBook ï Etched in Bone è Anne Bishop

Etched in BoneEm now know to fear the no man’s land beyond their borders and the darknessAs 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 Montgo Apparently some times I'm a little subtle and the trolls have difficulty following my train of thought So I'll be direct I feel kind of sick about reading this book I mean the whole series has been one long sugar high but this is like the regret after eating a thousand calories beyond reasonable or the vaguely ill feeling when my bloodstream has sugar than red blood cellsBut I confess I started reading and didn't stop until the last page There's something in Bishop's writing that carries one along; granted I was post night shift so my brain was a little sleep deprived fuzzy and in need of distraction And sure I might have spaced out a little when the plot became 'manly man protect speshul woman' and 'manly mens protect other womans' but that's just letting myself be carried along with the enjoyment of the moment right? Chocolatey goodness melting in the mouth not the hands It's only later one thinks 'wait what did I just do?'So I have to admit Etched in Bone is probably enjoyable in distraction eating kind of way This might be the day for confessions because I have another one I suspect half the enjoyment of this series comes from revenge fantasies In every book the bad guys who are truly selfish greedy without empathy and such horrible people that absolutely no one will find them sympathetic will meet an ugly end The last book gave us virtually world wide destruction of racist governments and subseuent reassertion of the 'natural' world In this one however even the revenge feels old as Bishop recycles the tired plotting of Written in Red book one while attempting to regain the threat of world wide destruction that drove books three and fourHowever Bishop couldn't really be bothered to deal with character creation so she resurrected least three or four of the villainous personalities to provide some of the meat for this book Ha ha that's a pun for those in the know Speaking of meat in this book Girly Girl decides she has an Issue about eating meat because she's troubled by images about it Me too Girly; me too But I'm not not dating a top level predator whose Manly Man friends tease him about bringing spinach to a potluck You should probably figure that shit outDamn did I mention how gross this books make me feel? It's like Sexism 101 all wrapped up in a sexy werewolf bow to make girly girls kind of enjoy itWill you like it? Idk I guess it depends on how altered your level of consciousness is at the moment and how you want to feel when it's all over As a modern feminist I felt than a little dirty being wrapped in the Super Chivalry of Bishop's world ooh a woman wants to be a cop Shocking Let's let her try after she's vetted by all the Mens where women write pen pals and have pizza parties and the men work out on bicycles and go around having Meetings Deciding Things As a modern person I also felt kind of dirty with the elderly black woman only one older person in the community being A Force to Reckon With as well as the Mother Figure for all the new community members and her daughter being the Weak and Easily Manipulated by Men character The rest of the community of wives are white normal and pretty homogeneous There's no way about it this series is seriously sexist and only reinforces ethnic stereotypes in any attempts to be inclusiveThen there's the writing the villain is completely ridiculous a caricature of selfishness sexism and manipulation and is accompanied by euivalently ridiculous henchmen As a further kick in the funny parts for those who are looking for Hawt Schmexy Times the ending will almost certainly piss off those hoping for a particular romantic angle Honestly I thought the ending was the one consistent note through the series but then almost everything here was recycled and Hawt times would have reuired some new materialOverall I read finished and felt gross about doing both Your mileage may vary
