Author Spotlight: Anne Bishop

Posted March 13, 2019 by Under the Covers Book Blog in Front Page, Interviews, Under the Covers / 7 Comments

If you’re after a series that puts a brand new spin on shifters and vampires then you need to pick up Anne Bishop’s the Others series. It is fascinating. I’ve read a lot of paranormal romance, so maybe my view of all things that go bump in the night is a little skewed. You say vampire, my knee jerk reaction is sexy man of mystery, you say werewolf, my programmed response is ruggedly sexy beast who I must tame. There are a few series where this is turned on it’s head, for example, the Kate Daniels series where the shifters are still sexy, but the vampires are most assuredly not. The same with Bec McMaster and her London Steampunk series where being a full blown vampire turns you into a mindless monster.

Anne Bishop though in her Urban Fantasy series The Others takes it one step further: the world is different, humans aren’t the top of the food chain and more importantly they know they aren’t. The terre indigene aka the vampires and shifters otherwise known as the Others are in charge and allow humans to live on their land. Any trespass or violence against a terre indigene will be met with swift and terrible violence. It sounds like it could be a horror. But instead, it focuses on how humans and the Others can work together. It’s a slow burn type of series, with each book world wide events escalate which are all encapsulated within one group of both Others and humans. It’s utterly fascinating and addicting and I highly recommend people give it a try.

We were lucky enough to put Anne Bishop in the spotlight this month!

BOOK INFO


Released: March 5th 2019
Series: The Others #7
 

There are ghost towns in the world—places where the humans were annihilated in retaliation for the slaughter of the shape-shifting Others.

One of those places is Bennett, a town at the northern end of the Elder Hills—a town surrounded by the wild country. Now efforts are being made to resettle Bennett as a community where humans and Others live and work together. A young female police officer has been hired as the deputy to a Wolfgard sheriff. A deadly type of Other wants to run a human-style saloon. And a couple with four foster children—one of whom is a blood prophet—hope to find acceptance.

But as they reopen the stores and the professional offices and start to make lives for themselves, the town of Bennett attracts the attention of other humans looking for profit. And the arrival of the outlaw Blackstone Clan will either unite Others and humans...or bury them all.
