Vision In Silver (2015) Anne Bishop

Somehow I managed to skip the second book. I realized it about a third of the way through, but decided it didn’t particularly matter.

Meg is still in the Lakeside Courtyard, and the others have rescued the other blood prophets from those who sold their visions for a price.

That had been the reason the Others had demanded what humans called full disclosure— reveal anyplace that housed blood prophets or face extermination of the entire town that conspired to keep the girls a secret.

The world is trying to come to terms with this–and a group of humans has decided to cause trouble for the Others, in the mistaken belief that they can control the lands.

The Sanguinati will call these humans Venom Speakers because they poison other humans with their words.

The humans are wrong, but they don’t know it yet.

We also learn more about how girls like Meg were treated–and it wasn’t well.

“I don’t remember my hair being cut,” Meg said. “But sometimes I had odd dreams of things being done. The Walking Names took each of us to a room for a maintenance sleep. When I’d wake up, nothing seemed different.”

But we also see that there was an original reason for the girls to be sequestered: they become overwhelmed by too much stimulus.

I’m still not sure I’m believing that Meg was able to manage as she did in the first book, but then fell apart after getting a haircut.

So it’s an interesting story, and I’m reading on, but it’s because I already have the next books and want to know what happens. I still have issues with some of the premises of the story.
