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.
REVIEW (NOT SPOILER FREE BUT I THINK MOSTLY MILD SPOILERS?)
This was amazing!!!!!!!!!! 4.5-4.9
I still prefer Meg and Simons ARC but this will now be my second favorite! Much better than Lake Silence!
I truly will continue to be baffled by how stupid humans are?!? Like really? How can you think you can take on the shifters and the sanguinati and the elders and elementals? So stupid 🤦🏻♀️
This book was a little confusing at times as there were a lot of POV changes. It was third person but there were a lot of MC’s to keep track of.
Things I liked.
The blended family. The two men and the blood prophet and the orphaned shifters.
Jesse and Toyla
Tobias and Jana
Virgil and Kane
Mel the Horse
The harvester Scythe
