I don't give out 5 out of 5 stars very often, because there is usually something that holds me back from giving a "perfect score." (And as is often stated, nothing is perfect.) This book also is not perfect, but WOW. I surely enjoyed the reading of it so much that I am having serious withdrawal. I can hardly wait to get my hands on the next one from the library.

I have been a fan of Anne Bishop's writing for years, but for some reason, I was hesitant to get into this series at first. I honestly don't know what was wrong with me. This book drew me in, from the world-building, to the plot, but especially with the characters.

Nowadays it's really hard to find a book with paranormal elements that doesn't go overboard showing off how sexy and misunderstood vampires/werewolves/etc. are (and I admit, those books are fun every now and again too.) Written in Red manages to take the paranormal, unapologetically show that the stereotypical monsters of old are STILL monsters, but they have come to terms (at least to an extent) with the human population. Add the paranormal and the horror with fantasy, mystery, crime, heck, even sociology... I call that a fascinating book.

I've seen other people comment that the lead female character is a Mary-Sue, because why else would everyone fall in love with her? In my opinion, if a group of beings that is usually looked upon with a mixture of fear, curiosity, distrust, and even hatred find someone who, having been kept apart from "normal" society, can simply treat those around her with decency, kindness, and respect - why wouldn't they love her? Long sentence aside, I totally get why Meg was well-loved by the Others. I kind-of want to be friends with her too.

I highly recommend this work of fiction. I'm sure it has faults, but I enjoyed reading it so much that I want to pick it up again and start over from the beginning. That is MY definition of a "good read." ( )

2.5 stars.

It has been so hard to finish this one.
I found it boring to death, but for a few moments.
I liked the worldbuilding and some Meg-moments, when she takes care of a puppy for example. But that is due to the fact that I love dogs :D Also her process of integration into the terra indigene society was very appealing and well done.
What I didn't enjoy was the lack of a solid plot, that made the book a bit too long and boring. It was more focused on characterization, putting the basis for the sequels hopefully. In the end it was slacking off too much for my tastes. ( )

It's really hard to rate this book. I liked some parts of it and hated others ones. But overall it didn't let me feel other emotions than vague annoyance of vague amusement.

Also this book is not dummy proof. When you're creating a whole new world, but it look like ours, you have to have your history right. Even your fictional history.

I had waaaaayy to many questions about everything.

But the most persistent one is: Why did Asia wanted to be an actress? Why not just be the best conman evah? Why was that her driving force for everything? I really didn't see any reason why she was so fixated on that. I liked her well enough without that. Apparently I have a weak spot for spoiled, weirdass, greedy characters. ( )

I always enjoy Anne Bishop's books so I don't know why it took me so long to read this series. I love The Others series the characters are great and the world is fascinating. This series reminds me a bit of her Ephemera series mixed with Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniels series and Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series. ( )

Liked the concept, lore, and world building as well as the dynamics between the main characters.

Didn't like the fact that despite all pretenses, there was slim to no tension because you knew the motivations and plans of all the characters. Honestly think it would have been better without Asia's point of view at all.

Trigger warnings: self-harm, mentions of captivity/slavery ( )
