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....

One of my top favorite series of all time
Would you consider the audio edition of Marked in Flesh to be better than the print version?
I have only listened to the audio version and will continue to do so because the narrator is so great.
What other book might you compare Marked in Flesh to and why?
This series is unique but I think people who like the Jane Yellowrock series by Faith Hunter or the Mercy Thompson Series by Patricia Briggs would also like these books.
Which scene was your favorite?
The end when Meg and Simon were in the pond
Any additional comments?
It is impossible to express in words how much I love this series. Not just Meg and Simon but all the characters, human and other. It's amazing how so much has changed with the Simon and the others since the first book. And how the humans in Lakeside are versus other places in Thasia. Cant wait to continue reading this story.

Like putting together a puzzle in slow motion where you already see the big picture
I've really enjoyed these books and I am not saying I hated this one but I was so so disappointed. There was so much time spent on the "big picture" or too many other ancillary characters that there was no true character development and no further attachment effort made for existing characters. The book moved so slow basically just covering the ground of all the buildup to the end /climax that the book makes clear is coming which steals any true oomph. Ultimately there wasn't any climactic moments and I was left dissatisfied. Since the reader already knows almost exactly what will happen from the beginning of the book the only thing that kept me listening was the previous attachment I had formed to characters in the first few books and even that wasn't quite enough.
As for the narrator, I like the narrator's voice except the voice inflection she used for Simon grated on my nerves and stole whatever enjoyment I might have had during his parts of the book.
I won't be picking up the next book as at this point I don't have any real interest in knowing where else the story could possibly go.
