Release Day Review: Wild Country by Anne Bishop


In this powerful and exciting fantasy set in the world of the New York Times bestselling 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 Blackstone Clan, outlaws and gamblers all, will uncover secrets…or bury them.

I absolutely love the amazing world Anne Bishop has created for The Others series. The paranormal beings aren't romanticized and shown in a heroic light. They are something to be afraid of because they will always protect their own first. They don't think or act like humans. They are and always will be predators. If you have read the previous books then some names will sound familiar but there are also a lot of new faces. Expect multiple POVs, but I have come to realize that I really love seeing how each character is thinking and why they are acting a certain way. There are multiple story-lines but the author did an incredible job in weaving it into one book.

"We are here. We are different but we stand united to protect our home. We are different but we protect our families, whether they are families by blood or by heart. We are different but we are not alone. Never alone. We are here."

Wild Country was action-packed, suspenseful, funny, heartbreaking, ruthless, original, and very intriguing. I loved the thought process and seeing how the Others reacted to certain situations. The confrontations between different beings was very interesting and it sometimes had me on the edge of my seat. I am just so invested in this world and characters. This book was unpredictable and had my attention from start until finish. I just hope we will get a lot more books set in this unique fantasy world, because I can't wait to see how this world and the relationships will develop further.
