Human laws do not apply in the territory controlled by the Others–vampires, shapeshifters, and paranormal beings even more deadly. And this is a fact that humans should never, ever forget . . .
After her divorce, Vicki DeVine took over a rustic resort near Lake Silence, in a human town that is not human controlled. Towns like Vicki’s have no distance from the Others, the dominant predators that rule most of the land and all of the water throughout the world. And when a place has no boundaries, you never really know what’s out there watching you.
Vicki was hoping to find a new career and a new life. But when her lodger, Aggie Crowe–one of the shapeshifting Others–discovers a dead body, Vicki finds trouble instead. The detectives want to pin the man’s death on her, despite the evidence that nothing human could have killed the victim. As Vicki and her friends search for answers, things get dangerous–and it’ll take everything they have to stay alive.
Lake Silence by Anne Bishop (The Others, #6)
She thought she had gained her freedom from a monstrous husband and a fresh start in life. What the kind-hearted, slightly klutzy Vicki discovered was a dead body and a world where human law was superseded by Others law and justice comes in many forms.
The Jumble was part of Vicki’s settlement, purported to be a potentially valuable resort lodge nestled in the woods near Lake Silence. It was in the fine print that Vicki learns she has been taken advantage of again, by her ex. Enter the Others and Vicki is about to learn just what makes them tick when their lives and land are threatened by human greed.
Anne Bishop’s LAKE SILENCE is a fascinating and fun look into a world of shapeshifters, vampires and more, including quirky crowgards, a tough cop and a sweet and well-meaning, big-hearted woman who has been used as a doormat one too many times. I loved the character interaction, unique personalities, and moments of humor, attitude and darkness as each scene plays out in one more battle between greed and honor!
