"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.."-- Provided by publisher.

Truly a lackluster effort. I enjoyed the first several. I feel like it's one of those scenarios where the premise has run dry and the author is still milking it.

I found the details of the logistics of running and stocking the settlements dry as dust.

Bishop can be a bit twee at times but at least that's interesting. This was not.

Explore a world where the earth itself has teen and claws and the spirits of the wild have evolved to look like the humans they see as prey. In the fifth book of The Others series, Bishop returns to Lakeside where blood prophet Meg is finally feeling more settled even though she's still trying to figure out her relationship with Simon Wolfguard. The central conflict in this book will revolve around the arrival of Lieutenant Montgomery's brother Cyrus, a con man looking to take what he can from the people of Lakeside.

What I love about this series is the continuous character development. When Meg first arrived in the Courtyard, she was running scared and completely sheltered from the world. She's grown into someone to be reckoned with, and even the Elders see it. The Others are also growing and learning from the human pack. It's was especially fun to see Sam and Skippy (two of the young wolves) coming into their own. If you haven't read the rest of the series, I wouldn't recommend starting with this book as you will loose the building plot lines, but please check out the first book - Written in Red.
