Content descriptions

General Note: Sequel to: Lake Silence.
Summary, etc.: "In this powerful and exciting fantasy set in the world of Others series, humans and the shape-shifting Others will see whether they can live side by side... without destroying one another. 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"-- Provided by publisher.

    Paralleling the time line of Etched in Bone (2017), the latest World of the Others novel focuses on the challenges Tolya Sanguinati and the rest of Bennett's population face in rebuilding a workable alliance between the terra indigene and the humans they're allowing to settle in the city. Among the new human inhabitants is a sheriff's deputy on her first assignment; she has to navigate not only an unfamiliar role but the unfamiliar social structures of the Wolfgard sheriff. Alongside the (relatively) simple logistics of getting people to live and work together despite radical differences, there are the outside threats. The leader of a human outlaw family has set his sights on Bennett as the ideal place to settle down and make his grift a legitimate business. He is also under the delusion that he can take control of the city, leading to a dramatic final showdown. This is kind of a cozy thriller, but the characters and the details of Bennett's regrowth make it a pleasing read on its own. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
