Waiting on Wednesday #15: Marked in Flesh (The Others #4) by Anne Bishop

Welcome to Waiting on Wednesday!  Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly featured hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight the not yet released books that I wish were in my hot little hands right now.

This week I am waiting on Marked in Flesh by Anne Bishop, the fourth book in the epic Others series.  This series is absolutely amazing and the last book left humanity on the precipice of being rendered extinct by the Others, owners of the land who have been angered by pockets of humans actions against them.
These books have just the right level of creepiness in its writing of the Others, the non humans that own the land the humans live on and most of the time see humans as food.  They also supply humans with all their resources to live ie wood , coal, crops, metals etc and the way Ms Bishop writes this series,  one is not always on human kind's side.
And I want to see more of Simon and Meg, their relationship and also the other characters of the courtyard.
This book is not out until March next year but this series is so good that already I am thinking about it and wondering how the next instalment of this tale is going to unfold.

For centuries, the Others and humans have lived side by side in uneasy peace. But when humankind oversteps its bounds, the Others will have to decide how much humanity they’re willing to tolerate—both within themselves and within their community...

Since the Others allied themselves with the cassandra sangue, the fragile yet powerful human blood prophets who were being exploited by their own kind, the delicate dynamic between humans and Others changed. Some, like Simon Wolfgard, wolf shifter and leader of the Lakeside Courtyard, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn, see the new, closer companionship as beneficial—both personally and practically.

But not everyone is convinced. A group of radical humans is seeking to usurp land through a series of violent attacks on the Others. What they don’t realize is that there are older and more dangerous forces than shifters and vampires protecting the land that belongs to the Others—and those forces are willing to do whatever is necessary to protect what is theirs…
