Review - Marked in Flesh

Marked in Flesh by Anne Bishop

* Received from NetGalley for review.

5/5 gnomes

This series continues to be impressive. Bishop is a real master of world building. The universes she builds feel very authentic.

This book has so much going on and really felt like the last book in a series. I really now can’t wait to see where the story goes from here.

The tension between humans and the others is at an all time high. You know something very bad is going to happen, you just don’t know when. Then everything kind of goes crazy all at once.

Letters and notes are used well here. They show just how interconnected everything is.

I really love the many different points of view presented here. It’s so easy to get invested in each part of the story and characters.

Simon and Meg continue to have an extremely interesting/unconventional relationship. Can’t wait to see what it means for the world of the Others.

Everything with the Elders was surprising and added another dimension to the story. The wild really showed itself here.

The ending was pretty life changing for this world. Now I’m wondering who the big bad is going to be for the last book.

Check out this series if you love strong world building and engaging characters.
