"Human laws do not apply in the territory controlled by the Others--vampires, shape-shifters, and even deadlier paranormal beings. And this is a fact that humans should never, ever forget. After her divorce, Vicki DeVine took over a rustic resort near Lake Silence. 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. When her lodger, Aggie Crowe--one of the shapeshifting Others--discovers a dead body, Vicki finds trouble. 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, ancient forces are roused by the disturbance in their domain. They have rules that must not be broken--and all the destructive powers of nature at their command."--Dust jacket.

Great book. I love all Anne Bishop's The Others books with their unique take on shapeshifters and an alternate Earth.

While I might have wished that Bishop had tackled something new, Lake Silence was still a good read, especially if you enjoy the world of the Others. While there are huge similarities with previous books in the series, I nonetheless found this to be an engrossing read.

I can't begin to express how terribly uncreative this book is. I made it to chapter 22 and had to put it down. Between the ridiculously named Sproings, blatantly obvious love interest and a mystery that isn't a mystery...groan. And then there is the recycling of characters and places. The Jumble is essentially the Courtyard at a different location. Bookstore being main hub, confused Others trying but not caring to understand humans. It's so formulaic (like the last few Others books) it could be a VC Andrews novel. A quick read if you don't want to think but if you are looking for something with a little more meat try Kelly Armstrong, Kim Harrison, Rachel Caine or Laurell K Hamilton.

New characters. New places. Same whimsy and humour. No previous experience with the world required. Good entrypoint to The World of the Others series.

If you haven't read Anne Bishop's "The Others" series, I encourage you to do so and in order! I'm very excited for this new line of books from Ms. Bishop.
