Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Anne Bishop returns to her world of the Others, as humans struggle to survive in the shadow of shape-shifters and vampires far more powerful than themselves....
After a human uprising was brutally put down by the Elders - a primitive and lethal form of the Others - the few cities left under human control are far-flung. And the people within them now know to fear the no man's land beyond their borders - and the darkness....
As some communities struggle to rebuild, Lakeside Courtyard has emerged relatively unscathed, though Simon Wolfgard, its wolf shifter leader, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn must work with the human pack to maintain the fragile peace. But all their efforts are threatened when Lieutenant Montgomery's shady brother arrives, looking for a free ride and easy pickings.
With the humans on guard against one of their own, tensions rise, drawing the attention of the Elders, who are curious about the effect such an insignificant predator can have on a pack. But Meg knows the dangers, for she has seen in the cards how it will all end: with her standing beside a grave.

I love the characters in this world

In this story we continue shortly after the end of book 4 with the world recovering from the Others' crushing of the Humans First and Last movement.

The action is back at the Lakeside Courtyard and the book has a similar feel to the first book in this series, and I liked it for that.

Its not as dramatic as some of the books just following the plans of our villain and the impact on the Courtyards residents. In this case the baddie is Lt Montgomery's brother "Jimmy". I found his character almost too evil to be believable,and to show how bad he is he always speaks with plenty of swear words, in particular the "F" word in his sentences, but I still found it a hard book to put down.

I understand this is the last in the series that Anne Bishop plans to write. If so its a real shame. I've loved all the major characters in these books Meg and Simon, Tess, Henry, Jester,Vlad - the "pack" of girls and the police "pack", and although this story comes to a tidy ending I don't see any reason why there cant be more.

One final mention to Alexandra Harris. In the first book I wasn't too sure about her to begin with but now I cant imagine the series being narrated by anyone else and she doesnt disappoint again.

The whole series is one of the rare ones where I have listened to all the books twice (except this one so far) and I can imagine coming back again for 3rds in a year or so.
