Sunsday, Juin 5

The sweet blood has changed things. You have changed because of her. We are intrigued by the humans who have gathered around your Courtyard, so we will give you some time to decide how much human the terra indigene will keep.
Friday 56:
Jesse Walker pushed at a lock of gray hair that had escaped the hairclip and looked up from her list as Shelley Bookman, the community's librarian, rushed into the general store.
This week I am featuring Marked in Flesh by Anne Bishop. This is the fourth book in this excellent fantasy series. Here is the description from Amazon:
For centuries, the Others and humans have lived side by side in uneasy peace. But when humankind oversteps its bounds, the Others will have to decide how much humanity they’re willing to tolerate—both within themselves and within their community...

Since the Others allied themselves with the cassandra sangue, the fragile yet powerful human blood prophets who were being exploited by their own kind, the delicate dynamic between humans and Others changed. Some, like Simon Wolfgard, wolf shifter and leader of the Lakeside Courtyard, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn, see the new, closer companionship as beneficial—both personally and practically.

But not everyone is convinced. A group of radical humans is seeking to usurp land through a series of violent attacks on the Others. What they don’t realize is that there are older and more dangerous forces than shifters and vampires protecting the land that belongs to the Others—and those forces are willing to do whatever is necessary to protect what is theirs...


  1. Enjoy the fantasy novel! Looks like a good one.

  3. The beginning and page 56 sound like two different books!

  8. I haven't read anything by Anne Bishop before, but this book sounds like something I would enjoy reading.

  9. I like the librarian's name! Sounds like this author has created a unique and fascinating world.
    My Friday post features THE LIE THAT TELLS A TRUTH.

  10. It sounds like a very intense novel but it definitely has an intriguing opening paragraph, it makes me want to know what's going on. It feels like the novel is opening right in the middle of something so gives the sense of needing to put together what has happened before. I like the sound of it. I hope you enjoy reading it.

  11. I would not have guessed that that was what the book is about based on the cover. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for sharing! Happy weekend!

  12. I've heard good things about Anne Bishop, but haven't picked up anything from her yet. Happy weekend!
