Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop
Narrator: Alexandra Harris
Length: 16 hrs and 9 mins
Date Read: February 2015
Genre: Fantasy, Urban Fantasy
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…

First Thoughts when Finished: Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop is changing my mind about Fantasy (totally digging it now).
Note: I wouldn’t call myself a traditional Fantasy (in the purest sense) reader but I am slowly letting a little more into my life. I do think this series reads a little more on the edge of Urban Fantasy which I love BUT it still has that slower paced story telling of traditional Fantasy. Anne Bishop and this series are a strong reason that I have let more in my life.
Overall Thoughts: Emotionally draining, action filled, awesome overload are just a few things I could say at the end of Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop. Best in the series so far! Each one of these books has slowly brought this world into full focus. The characters are compelling and complex. The story is slowly growing and changing with each book. The action is intense and plays well with everything going on. There is character growth but it is slow, methodical, and perfect for this storytelling. Really I just flat out love this series. This story was a stand out and will probably be one of the best of reads of 2015 for me.

Alexandra does a good job with this series. If there is a weak link in her narration it is the male voices. There are a lot of them and a few sound similar. That being said, I can’t imagine not listening to these on audio. I do think she adds an emotional layer to the story and enhances the main characters.

During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
