My Thoughts:
I should have written this review at once, but I was so freaking high on this book!

I did like the previous series, the books got better and better. They went from good to great. But this new series was great at once. And at the same time that I do feel that I want more from the stories, but they are just one book stories. Though they do work great that way too, the pack that punch because they have to.

In this one the town of Bennett is to be resettled. The Elders killed everyone in that town...everyone. Good and bad, they all were killed. And honestly, I hate humans so die humans! Humans can never be trusted.

Even with a human POV this is still an Others books. They rule this town, they protect this town.

Jana is a female cop who comes to work for the sheriff. I did like her, but, human law sucks. They know there are bad guys, but they wait until they do something bad. And the bad is always too bad.

Then there is Virgil, who broke me. He is a survivor after the Humans First Movement killed wolves all over the continent. And he and his brother is all that is left from his pack. Then I learn more and break. I adored Virgil. Virgil and the pup! *sobs*

Then there is Tolya, the Sanguinati, who governs the town. I do like them, they are so Other.

There are smaller povs too, they bring this town to life and make you care. All while that showdown is coming and scaring me.

This new spin-off is darker, and that is perhaps why I like it more. I like the edge. I like how The Elders are just outside the town, waiting to eat them all. And they really should eat them all. At one point I was screaming EAT THEM!!!!! Well the baddies after all. I kept listening and listening, I cold not stop.

At the end, well dang it, I am going to give it a 5! I loved this book. I loved the darkness. I loved how it made me care and despair. It's a bloody good book!

Alexandra Harris is wonderful and makes this book. I am sure it would be a good book reading it, but I also know that for me her narration takes it from good to freaking amazing. I like how she does The others. Giving them their personalities and really bring them forward. And how the humans are so human and the Others so Other.

She brings the emotions and it makes you feel so much. Her tone is perfect. Bringing darkness and hope.

This is a series you must listen to, and then I truly mean listen.


  1. yay! I had such a great time with this novel!

  2. I hear so many good things about this author! And the Others books in general. The narrator sounds fantastic!

  3. awww i like when they make you care.

  4. So have this one my list this year for audiable!

  5. I did some of the earlier Others books in audio, and I LOVE Alexandra Harris. She really is a wonderful reader. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed this :D

  6. You have me highly anticipating this one, and I love when pups are involved.

  7. I'm getting there eventually. Ready to start book two now. :)

  8. I like the sound of this book!

  9. Argh! The audiobook is sitting on my phone waiting for me. I can’t wait. EAT THEM!

  10. I'm really undecided about starting this one. I loved the first few books of the first but grew bored by the end so I don't know....

    1. Then skip those and try these sequels instead

  11. YES!! I am so glad you loved it. I understand she is taking a break from this world..which is killing me!

    1. Oh no, you are breaking my heart! Nooooooooo

  12. I feel like we need another book in Bennett. There is much more story to be told there. I loved Virgil and the puppy. My favorite was Cowboy Bob in the cell. LOL

  13. Great review! I love how much you loved it! I wish this one had come first - with the timing overlapping Etched in Bone. And I really hope we get more from Bennett - their story is NOT done!!!

    1. SO true, it felt strange that this one took place before
