In this thrilling and suspenseful fantasy set in the world of the New York Times bestselling Others series, an inn owner and her shape-shifting lodger find themselves enmeshed in danger and dark secrets.
Human laws do not apply in the territory controlled by the Others--vampires, shape-shifters, and even deadlier paranormal beings. And this is a fact that humans should never, ever forget....
After her divorce, Vicki DeVine took over a rustic resort near Lake Silence, in a human town that is not human controlled. Towns such as Vicki's don't have any distance from the Others, the dominant predators who rule most of the land and all of the water throughout the world. And when a place has no boundaries, you never really know what is out there watching you.
Vicki was hoping to find a new career and a new life. But when her lodger, Aggie Crowe--one of the shape-shifting Others--discovers a murdered man, Vicki finds trouble instead. The detectives want to pin the death on her, despite the evidence that nothing human could have killed the victim. As Vicki and her friends search for answers, ancient forces are roused by the disturbance in their domain. They have rules that must not be broken--and all the destructive powers of nature at their command.
I was hoping for something more.
Lake Silence wasn’t quite what I was expecting. I absolutely love this series and did enjoy this story but I was a bit disappointed in the protagonist, Vicki. I would have liked for her to have grown more emotionally, taken strength in her accomplishments to boost her self-worth and not taking crap from anyone. The overall story felt a bit like a repeat, different characters with similar outcomes at a new location. The narrator did an awesome job with providing unique voices for each character and appropriate tone inflections for each scene.
The book was released March 6, 2018 so I downloaded the audio version and for some reason it’s telling me that it’s not available in the US so I spent $26 on an audiobook that I cannot listen too so I have no idea how to rate this book I have read all the previous books and like them Very much but I would really like iTunes to either reimburse me for the money I’ve spent on this book considering I can’t listen to it I release whatever Lock you have on it and let me listen to this book
