As spring slowly creeps in, so excruciatingly slowly, I’ve got my own recommendation for a little warm weather reading. I’ve started to shy away from doing book reviews for many reasons, but every so often, I’ll fall in love with an author or title and can’t stop myself. For this hop, I’d like to recommend The Others series by Anne Bishop.
The first book in this series, Written in Red, stole my heart. The story is set in an alternate universe, which is surprisingly like the world we know at times, where everything is controlled and owned by shifters, also known as the Others. The humans and the Others have had a long history of clashes and misunderstandings. When Meg enters the scene, we get to experience how she starts to integrate into their closed society and it’s absolutely captivating.
These books have everything I personally love in a story. They are dark fantasy, my favorite genre, with a slow progressing romantic relationship. They do tend to be a bit slow going, but the writing is so beautiful and charming that it didn’t bother me at all. If you are looking for a good read for a sunny day at the park, I highly suggest these.
