THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! Anne Bishop returns to her world of the Others, as humans struggle to survive in the shadow of shapeshifters and vampires far more powerful than themselves...

After a human uprising was brutally put down by the Elders--a primitive and lethal form of the Others--the few cities left under human control are far-flung. And the people within them now know to fear the no-man's-land beyond their borders--and the darkness... As some communities struggle to rebuild, Lakeside Courtyard has emerged relatively unscathed, though Simon Wolfgard, its wolf shifter leader, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn must work with the human pack to maintain the fragile peace. But all their efforts are threatened when Lieutenant Montgomery's shady brother arrives, looking for a free ride and easy pickings. With the humans on guard against one of their own, tensions rise, drawing the attention of the Elders, who are curious about the effect such an insignificant predator can have on a pack. But Meg knows the dangers, for she has seen in the cards how it will all end--with her standing beside a grave...

Praise for Anne Bishop and the Novels of the Others
Anne Bishop is so good at writing character development....I love this series and I NEED MORE! "USA Today"
A stunningly original yarn, deeply imagined, beautifully articulated, and set forth in clean, limpid, sensual prose. "Kirkus Reviews"
The Queen of Fantasy...Teeming with intrigue, suspense, heartbreak, and hints of romance, Bishop s literary skills continue to astound and enchant. Heroes and Heartbreakers
Without doubt this is one of the best urban fantasy series on the market...Bishop is one hell of a storyteller! "RT Book Reviews" (4 1/2 stars, Top Pick)
I just can t rave enough about Anne Bishop s dark and disturbingly beautiful world. If you read just one dark fantasy series, make it "The Others." Fresh Fiction"
