Return to New York Times best-selling author Anne Bishop’s "phenomenal" (Urban Fantasy Investigations) world of the Others - where supernatural entities and humans struggle to co-exist, and one woman has begun to change all the rules.…
After winning the trust of the terra indigene residing in the Lakeside Courtyard, Meg Corbyn has had trouble figuring out what it means to live among them. As a human, Meg should be barely tolerated prey, but her abilities as a cassandra sangue make her something more.
The appearance of two addictive drugs has sparked violence between the humans and the Others, resulting in the murder of both species in nearby cities. So when Meg has a dream about blood and black feathers in the snow, Simon Wolfgard - Lakeside’s shape-shifting leader - wonders if their blood prophet dreamed of a past attack or a future threat.
As the urge to speak prophecies strikes Meg more frequently, trouble finds its way inside the Courtyard. Now, the Others and the handful of humans residing there must work together to stop the man bent on reclaiming their blood prophet - and stop the danger that threatens to destroy them all.

A beautiful yet horrific fairytale.
Brilliant in a quiet way
The story follows on well from the first book 'Written in Red'. As with the first book nothing is frenzied but the story is lively and I really enjoy this invented world so completely different from any other book I have read.
I loved the bedroom scene where Simon changes from Wolf to man and does not understand why Meg is so upset.
I just loved it - the slowly developing relationship between Meg and Simon, I find particularly lovely - no raw sex or innuendoes. I so want them to end up together but in a calm and open way.
Beautiful book beautifully written with lots of space for more in the series which I will watch out for. I will read both Written in Red and Murder of Crows again and again.
