Human laws do not apply in the territory controlled by the Others - vampires, shape-shifters, and paranormal beings even more deadly. 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 like Vicki's have no distance from the Others, the dominant predators that 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's out there watching you.

Should have read the reviews .......This book wasn't about Meg and Simon, which was sad for me, I feel this book was more of a Novella & could stand on its own. I hope Ms Bishop goes back to the storyline we all love.

I really wanted to like this series...... but oh my I just wanted to slap them, so predictable , lower class people find hero, he rises in the ranks to become top Hero, he makes friends, lose his friends, always has a positive attitude always thinks the best of everyone gets stabbed in the back over and over and over again all three books same situation , he gets one step forward and he get knocked back two steps , it was everything I could do to get through book 3 .

I do believe the narration was one of the best I've heard lately but the story I can only give two stars, just wasn't my cup of tea .

Early in her life, Josephine Malone learned the hard way that there was only one person she could love and trust: her grandmother, Lydia Malone. Out of necessity, unconsciously and very successfully, Josephine donned a disguise to keep all others at bay. She led a globetrotting lifestyle on the fringes of the fashion and music elite, but she kept herself distant. While Josephine was trotting the globe, retired boxer Jake Spear was living in the same small town as Lydia.

I wanted to love this series because I truly believe KA is an awesome writer, who can carry me away with her stories, but Alas this was not the series, I was not overly fond of the narrator and KA's writing was just ok in this series, all three stories where the same just different rich older women, don't get me wrong I'm a "older" woman but seriously with age should come some kind of intelligence on life... that being said the series was boring and took me forever to get through, this is not one I'd re-listen to down the road.

Is this the last book? I'm not sure, the story kinda stalled and moved around Meg and Simon which was kinda of disappointing, the story leads away from the two main characters in the book, new characters are added and making this book a bit darker and scarier. Monty's brother enters the story, he is a ugly & mean person, he has dark and selfish thoughts, so unlike his brother Monty and the story revolves more around him than the original storyline the lakeside courtyard.
Although I love the writer and the narrator I was sad that there wasn't more of a solid ending for. !Meg and Simon

Although PB again brings Mercedes and Adam to life in this book, but for the love of hearing, why do you mess up a good thing by adding/changing narrative voices? I hated it and it totally distracted me because I hated it, I didn't make it pass chapter 2 sad to say, I bought the book and finished by reading. I would love to see this audiobook re-done with just LK.

Cora Goode has woken up in a fairytale world where she can understand what birds are saying to her, men ride horses and have fluffy feathers in their hats, and furniture zigs, zags, and whirls in miracles of construction. The problem is, she thinks she's in a dream, but she's actually taken the place of the parallel-universe Cora and, without realizing it, our Cora does something that starts a centuries-old curse that will sweep the land if she gets captured by the evil Minerva.
