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....
Vision in Silver is #3 in The Others series by Anne Bishop - and now I am all caught up and have to wait like everyone else for the next one! Well at least I hope there is a next one, as one reviewer said this one felt like an ending, however I don't see everything that settled, so I bet there is more to come. My crystal ball says many, many more!
In this book the conflict with the Humans First and Last group escalates and goes a long way to engendering further distrust of humans by the terra indigene. Lizzie - Montgomery's daughter is caught up in the fray and this seven year old is sent on a train ride across country, with the HFL group hot on her trail.
We are able to see the blood prophets and how life is going for them, now that they have been rescued from their captors. It doesn't all go smoothly, and Meg the trail blazer is an important ingredient for their safety and comfort.
I loved all the interplay of various relationships, Simon and Meg of course, but also Lizzie and Montgomery and Nathan. Sam gets his nose in a little more here and there. Simon and Meg's relationship is certainly developing - where it will go is something that intrigues me, Simon is certainly interested in learning all the nuances in human relationships.
I really like listening to the audio formats of these books, although reading the paperback of the middle one because I couldn't get it in audio form was also very good. (Although I see now readers in my part of the world can buy Murder of Crows on Audible, maybe my plea to Penguin helped!) I like Alexandre Harris' interpretation with the narration and her wolf cries! Long live The Others series.
