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 murders 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 whether their blood prophet dreamed of a past attack or of 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.
This book was interesting and the story was captivating. As the second book in the series the author did a nice job expanding the world she had already created. The first half of the book was somewhat difficult because the point of view was mostly told threw the police officers perspective and I was more courious about Meg and Simon.
In this book, Meg and Simon struggle with what kind of relationship to have. The definition they decided on isn’t what they both want or how there actions show what they want. I was hoping something more would come between them but I am happy with the end of the story and the progress that was made.
