The Others Series #3

16 hrs and 9 mins

Genre: Urban fantasy

Vision in  Silver Audiobook Sample

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….

    Plot

    Three major plot threads in Visions in Silver. One, everyone is looking to Meg “the Trailblazer” to figure out how to help the other Cassandra Sangue survive in the outside world. Second, Lizzy, Lieutenant Montgomery’s daughter, is found on a train by herself by Nathan. Everyone from Toland is looking for her and her “boo bear”. Third, there it the increasing struggle between the others and the Humans First and Last movement. HFL is not only going after the others, but any human branded a “wolf lover”, any human that is not willing to fight against the others.

    Characters

    The Others series has some very outstanding and wide variety of characters. Meg, our blood profit and friend to the others, is still working to make her way through the outside world. Simon is still trying to figure out his relationship with Meg. We get to see more of Montgomery and his daughter, who is a very interesting character. The number “non-edible” humans keeps increasing, as much as this drives Simon crazy.

  • Rocked my world

    What I Loved

    This series continues to impress me. It is extremely high on my list of favorite Urban Fantasy series. While the story is very dark, there are still moments when I find myself chuckling. For example, Meg get very upset with herself when she upsets Nathan. She hugs him while he was in wolf form and starts balling.

    “She cried on me.” Nathan said. “I couldn’t understand most of what she said, but she cried until my fur was wet.” … “There is nothing in my fur is there” Simon gave the other wolf a careful look. “No boogers” “Good, I hate washing boogers out of fur” “Who doesn’t? What comes out of human noses are disgusting.”

Vision in Silver Audiobook Narration

4.0 Hearts
Green earphones

While I like this narrator, she isn’t phenomenal. She works really well for this series, but I wouldn’t say she rocked my world or anything. She isn’t Petkoff, King, Raudman, Gavin, etc. I wouldn’t even list her in my top ten.

This is a series that I will only listen to on audio. While I wouldn’t normally like Alexandra Harris for most Urban Fantasy series, she is perfect for this one. She really brings out the innocence of Meg. Each character has very distinct voice.

Ms. Harris does a great job with each character from the children like Lizzy and Sam, all the way to the adults including the crows with their inquisitiveness, the Sanguinati, elementals and the wolves. She does a great job in pulling out the different personalities of each character. I can’t imagine reading instead of listening to this series.

  1. This is one of my all time favorite series ever. I have loved every single book and this one was not an exception. I love this series so much I have listened to the audiobooks too (not this one… yet), but I have to agree with you, the narrator is not great. I actually don’t like her, despite that because of my love for this series I still listen to the audiobooks.
    Awesome review.

    • Thanks. I think this narrator works for this series. I think she voices Meg well, but couldn’t handle a heroine like Kate Daniels or Rachel Morgan. I do laugh with Jennifer TBN says that Simon sounds like Scooby Doo. This series has quickly moved to the top of my favorite UF series. I want book four now. LOL

  2. Eek I need to read book one!! The series looks so good. Wonder if the library has the audios *checks*

  3. Oh I’m so glad you had a great time with this one. I loved it as well but well Anne Bishop has her way, right? I so can’t wait for more now, it’s terrible! Great review Melanie!

    • Thanks. I’ve been wanting to try more Anne Bishop books. I’ve heard interesting things about them. I think I’m going to give them a go this year while I’m waiting for more of The Others. 🙂

  4. Great review Melanie! This series was one of those unexpected reads that you fall in love with, for me at least! So glad to see that this installment was just as engaging as the first two. I don’t think I could listen to this one, just because of all the elements involved in this story…I’d feel lost, but I have an eArc that I will be devouring soon! I’m still waiting for the “romance” between Meg and Simon but it’s UF so I’ll probably have to wait some more…LOL

  5. Glad you enjoyed it. I just recently got book one because I’ve seen so much book love for this series that seems to keep staying strong.

    • This is one of my favorite UF series right now, if not the favorite. It is darker than most of the others that I read, which is one reason I like it. It is also completely different, which I really like. I can’t even think of a series to even remotely compare it to.

  6. I have had my print ARC for months and I couldn’t read it because I did the audios for the first two books so I have been patiently waiting to get my audio copy. Tomorrow! I am so happy to see all the positive reviews for this one. I adore this series. You are right the narrator is good, but she isn’t a Luke Daniels, Will Patton or Lorelei King for me.

    • I couldn’t read this series either. I started off listening to the series and now I’m hooked. While, this narrator isn’t even going to be one of my favorites, I think she does a great job of Meg and her innocence.
      Melanie recently posted…Dead Heat Audiobook by Patricia Briggs (review)My Profile

  7. OOh Melanie Great review, thanks. I haven’t tried this one yet either, Darn. So many books so little time 🙂

  8. Woot-woot! Another 5 star review for Vision in Silver! I’m sad that I caved, and was unable to hold out for the audiobook, but I agree with everything you said, so I still made out ok in the end I think.

  9. High Five on the booger quote. LOL Like you I really love this series and can’t wait for the next one. I’m going to try and do a relisten of the whole series a few weeks before the fourth book comes out next March.
    Jennifer recently posted…Joint Review | Vision in Silver by Anne BishopMy Profile

    • I did a relisten to books one and two at the beginning of the year. I will do the same thing before book four. I saw you pulled the booger quote too. Great minds. I liked Anne’s peeing quote too. This one was definitely the funniest of the three. Is it March 2016 yet?
      Melanie recently posted…Dead Heat Audiobook by Patricia Briggs (review)My Profile

  10. I completely agree with your assessment of the narration for the series. Meg is PERFECT. The female characters are pretty good. The males are ify. But whether it’s the writing or the narration – it feels REALLY SLOW for most of the book (when listening). I am debating trying to read the next book.
    Jen Twimom recently posted…Listen Up! Audiobook Review: Vision in Silver by Anne BishopMy Profile

    • People either seem to love the narration or hate it. I kinda like it. Yes, some of the males are ify, but Alexandra Harris has become the voice for me. I can’t imagine reading at this point. I hope that works better for you.
