The Others freed the cassandra sangue to protect the blood prophets from exploitation, not realizing their actions would have dire consequences. Now the fragile seers are in greater danger than ever before—both from their own weaknesses and from those who seek to control their divinations for wicked purposes. In desperate need of answers, Simon Wolfgard, a shape-shifter leader among the Others, has no choice but to enlist blood prophet Meg Corbyn’s help, regardless of the risks she faces by aiding him.
Meg is still deep in the throes of her addiction to the euphoria she feels when she cuts and speaks prophecy. She knows each slice of her blade tempts death. But Others and humans alike need answers, and her visions may be Simon’s only hope of ending the conflict.
For the shadows of war are deepening across the Atlantik, and the prejudice of a fanatic faction is threatening to bring the battle right to Meg and Simon’s doorstep…

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Vision in Silver is an utterly brilliant addition to The Other Series by Anne Bishop.
Simon Wolfgard, leader of the Courtyard, is dealing with the aftermath of cassandra sangue's freedom. The once exploited seers are not handling their new freedom very well. There are those who wish to use the difficulties to regaining use of cassandra sangue while causing political turmoil against the Others.
Someone is trying to insight war between the inhabitants of Atlantik. The treachery is growing in the human government, hopefully they realize they live by the Others' leave before its too late.
In the Courtyard, the bond between humans, cassandra sanque and the Others is evolving. It is truly amazing. Meg is also struggling with her urges. With the help of the Courtyard residents, she is discovering ways to help herself and her fellow cassandra sanque.
Anne Bishop pulls you into this world she created and happily holds you riveted to every single word she’s written. Not only does Bishop bring the conflict between the Others and humans to the forefront but also captures the turmoil its causes within the individual groups; the divides it creates in families, work place and society’s core.
Bishop captures the essence of humanity at its worst and best and infuses it into her characters.
This series might be the most unique, captivating and utterly brilliant Dark Urban Fantasy I’ve ever read. Truly hitting the top of all my favorites! I flat out loved this book and this entire series.
Vision in Silver has completely rocked me, jarred my emotions and kept me clinging to the pages.
Vision in Silver is dark at times and can be quite distressing so it is not for those who prefer meeker reads.
I would highly recommend this book and series; especially those who enjoy complex urban fantasy reads. Today, March 3, 2015 is release day GO BUY IT TODAY!
