Publisher's Summary

In this thrilling and suspenseful fantasy set in the world of the New York Times best-selling 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.

Terrific stand-alone Others novel

First, I've read all the Others novels as they were released and loved some of them, so I was eagerly awaiting this novel. I was concerned that there was unlikely to be crossover from characters in the earlier novels, since that is so much of what I've loved.

Well, my worry was unfounded, because the new characters are as perfectly flawed and struggling as those in the Lakeside Courtyard. I especially loved the way the aftermath of an abusive relationship was a primary plot arc - and even more the way that men who range from manipulative to downright exploitative operate, and how to some extent they need the victim because they need the abuse. All without ever preaching! Instead, Lake Silence is a beautiful exploration of what happens when the vulnerable and soft prey finds itself allied with a much larger predator than anything trying to eat the duckling! And the importance of treating strangers well, lest they be - as the Greeks and many cultures have believed - powerful gods in the disguise of someone helpless.

Also, how to respect CLEAR AND SPECIFIC LIMITS, and the value of accepting and living within those limits, which is definitely a lesson humanity needs to learn.

Five stars! Okay, okay, I did take off stars for the narrator and feel guilty about it, since she is the series narrator, and I would probably miss her if she lost the gig... but... she just emphasizes most words way too much. Somehow it sounds to me like a backward William Shatner effect, or maybe just a female William Shatner.

Still, a great use of a credit!

Just as entrancing as the others

You will fall back into this world as easily as the first set of books.

Good Addition to the series

A spin off from the Others books. It has none of the characters we know and love from the first four books but is set in the same world. Its a good enjoyable read but not quite the same standard as the other 4 books and I missed Simon and Meg. I liked it but got a bit frustrated at how stupid the baddies were - given all that happened in the previous books its a bit hard to believe the humans would behave in the way they did. Dont read it unless you already read the first 4

Alexandra Harris as the narratior is perfect if you are used to her in the first books

Very enjoyable

Although I missed all the usual characters, I have to say this was a very good addition to the series. It was well written as always, and it was nice to see the situation/world for new perspectives. The narrator did a good job. Her voice is clear and I like the fact that she tries to make each character sound different. Can'y wait for the next book.

Couldn’t stop listening

Great voice to listen to. The story was good, just like the other books. A very good and tidy ending to the story. I liked the characters of the Others especially those that live in the lake. It really helped to have listened to the previous books for the back story. I am looking forward to more books. The story was similar but not a repeat of the other books.
