We are already in February and I decided to continue doing Best of the Bunch for another year. It is fun to see what I picked as my favorites for each month and how that held up to my overall statistics. And just sharing my favorites an extra time in a seperate post feels good too.
Best of the Bunch is a monthly meme created by Jessica at a Coccoon of Books.
Favorites of the Month
Best of the Bunch
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 Blackstone Clan, outlaws and gamblers all, will uncover secrets…or bury them.
The end to The World of The Others, for now. I should have guessed that this would become a 5 star read. Not only have I rated most of the books in this series 5 stars, but Anne Bishop also just knows how to write characters that I love that aren’t black or white. And the conflict between the others and the humans remains valid. By no means is this book or the series perfect. There is a LOT I could pick at. But in the end it didn’t bother me during reading.
