Marked in Flesh - Anne Bishop (I finally read the book and of course loved every page)

Marked in Flesh
#4 in the Others series
this is one of the only Urban Fantasy series I have read in the last years
that I love
that I want more of
I started with reading the series in paperback format
so I'm always a year behind with reading the books
but that's ok
I absolutely adore the first three books
and still was hesitant to finally read #4
because I don't want the series to end
and also feared that beloved characters would die
because the plot of "Marked in Flesh" sounded pretty grim
but now it was finally time to read the book and dive back into the world of Meg, Simon and the Others
once again it was very easy to reconnect with the world and characters
to feel as if I was part of this fascinating and at times cruel world
in which powerful special beings watch over what humans do on earth
Anne Bishop has developed a wondrous and complex world
that doesn't stop to fascinate me
it makes me think about out own world
and how we destroy it
because there isn't anyone who is keeping watch
someone who is so powerful
that humans will always lose in a fight
in "Marked in Flesh" the story of different places is told
at first I wasn't sure if that would work for me
but even though I had to switch between different places and characters constantly
it was never hard to follow the plot
and I always felt entertained
and was interested in all characters and what happened to them
of course I always loved coming back to Meg and Simon
this book gave me everything I wanted and more
I felt deeply while reading "Marked in Flesh"
mourned, laughed, felt connected
the book made me once again be in awe about what Anne Bishop created
and of course now I can't wait for the last book in this series
"Etched in Bone"
to be published in paperback format in 2018
I have to say that the plot makes me a bit nervous
and I hope that all of the characters I like will survive
and that the evil human will get what he deserves. 


  1. I absolutely love this series, too! Meg and Simon are two of my favourite UF characters of all time now, and I especially love how Meg has (very) slowly started to become more of her own person and stand up for herself. I thought that Etched in Bone was a strong conclusion for this series arc and I hope you like it too; have you heard that there's going to be a spin-off series as well?

    1. Yes, I heard about it. And the more I think about it, the more excited I get. I just hope that things won't be too dramatic and sad. But for now I of course will focus on reading "Etched in Bone" and hopefully I will enjoy it as much as you did.

      Happy Reading!
