"The New York Times bestselling author of The Black Jewels Trilogy transports readers to a world of magic and political unrest-where the only chance at peace requires a deadly price... The Others freed the cassandra sangue to protect the blood prophets from exploitation, not realizing their actions would have dire consequences. Now the fragile seers are in greater danger than ever before-both from their own weaknesses and from those who seek to control their divinations for wicked purposes. In desperate need of answers, Simon Wolfgard, a shape-shifter leader among the Others, has no choice but to enlist blood prophet Meg Corbyn's help, regardless of the risks she faces by aiding him. Meg is still deep in the throes of her addiction to the euphoria she feels when she cuts and speaks prophecy. She knows each slice of her blade tempts death. But Others and humans alike need answers, and her visions may be Simon's only hope of ending the conflict. For the shadows of war are deepening across the Atlantik, and the prejudice of a fanatic faction is threatening to bring the battle right to Meg and Simon's doorstep..."--… (mais)

More of the same, but I don´t care, I like these books. ( )

While there is an obvious pattern in her stories, the attention to characters is what keeps me reading. The book hangover when this series is done will be severe. ( )

This seems to be the second "season" of this series. Books 1 and 2 make up the first "season" where the overall story arc was concluded. Now we have the relationships, characters and day to day dynamics from the first two books that have been built over time and a new "arc" that will begin in this book. Again, no romance. Relationships are being built over time, but no romance.

Also, I noticed that this series may have started with a primary character, but it has moved into a bit of "roving eye" focusing on multiple story lines, multiple characters with their own lives. It is about an overall community and those people within it, as well as what is going on in the outside world.

No "hero and heroine" although there are a handful of primary characters, and a bit of relationship dynamic that is explored further, but no romance.

I went into the series expecting it to be a pnr, but it has turned into fiction, alternate universe, sometimes thriller, sometimes suspense, sometimes a bit of interpersonal and intrapersonal relationship dynamics, fish out of water, and family/work/community drama.

A good read. ( )

Nothing really happened in this book. It was an entire book of filler and tension builder but no climax or resolution, rather disappointing. Hopefully with the next book having to be all climax and resolution it will have a made this book worth the read.

You could say relationships were strengthened characters were developed but I feel all of that was implied with the last book and would have been understood without using a whole book to spell it out. But maybe this series is geared towards a younger reader.

I really enjoy the world she has created which is why I keep reading the books, however the way it is written leaves something to be desired.

and on a final note it should not take 3 books to decide if meg and Simon like each other or not in a more than friends way. It was obvious in book 1 that is where the story wanted to go, dragging it out is painful. spoiler alert we still don't know if they like each other or not. Either make them family or romantic, stop bouncing back and forth. ( )

Meg Corbyn entered the bathroom in the Human Liasion's Office and laid out the items she'd labeled the tools of prophecy: antiseptic ointment, bandages, and the silver folding razor decorated with pretty leaves and flowers on one side of the handle.

[Simon Wolfgard explaining to Captain Burke & Pete Denby what will happen if there's not enough food]
'We will fight for what is ours. In the end, your young will have enough to eat because there will be fewer humans wanting a share. And our young will grow strong on all the meat harvested from the fight.' (chapter 6)
Ruthie was the one who had realized the terra indigne had a verbal hierarchy they used when talking about humans, a way of indicating the degree of interaction with an individual. Ruth had been the Ruthie when she'd been a customer at Howling Good Reads, but since she'd started working in the Courtyard, she was just Ruthie. Meg was Meg, the Meg, or our Meg depending on who was talking to her or about her.

And humans the Others didn't like had 'that' added to their names. (chapter 15)
