Waiting on Wednesday: Marked In Flesh by Anne Bishop

Waiting on Wednesday, Marked In Flesh, Anne Bishop, UF
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine where bloggers have the chance to spotlight upcoming releases they're anticipating.
This series is one of my favorites and want the book NOW. I need to know what happens. It releases next year, in March.


For centuries, the Others and humans have lived side by side in uneasy peace. But when humankind oversteps its bounds, the Others will have to decide how much humanity they’re willing to tolerate—both within themselves and within their community...

Since the Others allied themselves with the cassandra sangue, the fragile yet powerful human blood prophets who were being exploited by their own kind, the delicate dynamic between humans and Others changed. Some, like Simon Wolfgard, wolf shifter and leader of the Lakeside Courtyard, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn, see the new, closer companionship as beneficial—both personally and practically.

But not everyone is convinced. A group of radical humans is seeking to usurp land through a series of violent attacks on the Others. What they don’t realize is that there are older and more dangerous forces than shifters and vampires protecting the land that belongs to the Others—and those forces are willing to do whatever is necessary to protect what is theirs…

What book are you looking forward to?

    1. I think you'd like them despite the fact that they're urban fantasy.

    1. Dark? No. Intense? Yes But I don't think they'd be too much for you. I really think you'd like these. They're complex, layered, intelligent, strong world building, and have humor and romance.

  16. I'll put them on my "try someday" list, then! Along with Seanan McGuire's October Daye and Incrypted books.
