Etched in Bone
Etched in Bone - Anne Bishop

It’s been almost a month since I finished Etched in Bone and I still haven’t been able to pull my thoughts together to write anything more articulate than my initial squee, but it’s bugging me to have the review unfinished.

 

I loved The Others series – though this flirtation between Urban Fantasy and just Fantasy is definitely not something that would appeal to all. 

 

I like how Etched in Bone focused on the core crew of Meg, Simon and the rest of the “Human Pack” in the Lakeside Courtyard.  I also loved the interplay between Meg and the Elders that I’m seeing quoted in many other reviews (the whole bit about “Want cukkies”). 

 

But in many ways this book is a let-down after the events of Marked in Flesh.  It’s almost like the whole book is an epilog.  As much as I enjoyed the experience of reading and all the feels from visiting with beloved characters in an intriguing world, I couldn’t quite give Etched in Bone 5 stars because of how weak the villain/antagonist was.

 

I’m sad this series, or at least the arc focusing on Meg and the Lakeside Courtyard is finished.  But at the same time, I’m glad that Ms. Bishop had a clear vision with a beginning and an end and didn’t get drawn into a never-ending series.  I’m very curious about #6 – the official blurb makes it seem like it will be a murder mystery or perhaps even a cozy set in the same universe. Though the cover is gorgeous I have to admit to not being impressed by this teaser for Lake Silence.  I’ll probably give it a try, but I’m wondering if Ms. Bishop will be able to capture my interest with the new spinoff characters.

Reading progress: 5%.
Etched in Bone - Anne Bishop

Ooh, the aftermath of the previous books.  Just " how much human" will the elders keep?

Just in from My Fairy Librarian ...
Etched in Bone - Anne Bishop

I'm not sure if the emoticon should be excited or sad since presumably the last of the original series.  But I sure have been anticipating this one.  

 

Just downloaded ebook from public library waitlist and will soon disappear into Meg's world.

 

Taking a page from YouKneeK, I'll also mention my planned next read.  

 

NEXT UP:  

 

Breath of Heaven (Well of Sorrows) (Volume 3) - Joshua Palmatier,Benjamin Tate 

Breath of Heaven, sadly also presumably the last in series that had gotten truly exciting.

Finished it!
Etched in Bone - Anne Bishop

And I'm sad because it was the last one in the series.

 

The one thing that annoyed me was how long it took for the bad guy to get what was coming to him. They should have just let Tess do her thing and it would have prevented a lot of the trouble that happened later. But I suppose that would have made the book only about 20 pages long.

 

I think my favourites are the Crowgard. I would love to go shopping at Sparkles and Junk, and hang out with Jenni and Starr, as long as they promised not to eat my eyeballs.

There can't be many people who would get away with admonishing the Elders for being rude.
