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.
‘Murder of crows’ is the second book in the series about the Others by Anne Bishop. I really enjoyed the first book in the series, ‘Written in red’, but I found ‘Murder of crows’ quite boring at times.
The story feels dragging and long-winded. I got annoyed that there was no progress in the relationship between Simon and Meg and that they were just waiting for the other to make a move. That could’ve doen with a little bit more action to be honest.
Because it felt long-winded, I got into a reading dip. I had no energy to pick up this book, but on the other hand I wanted to keep on reading, just because I wanted to know how it would end. But if I’ll pick up the next book in the series, I don’t know.
I read this book quite a while ago before writing the review and now I can only remember the negatives of this book. That’s a shame, because I was really looking forward to a good fantasy series with werewolves, but sadly Anne Bishop couldn’t live up to my expectations.
The second book in the Others-series, ‘Murder of crows’ by Anne Bishop couldn’t grab my attention and feels too long-winded. That’s a shame because I had really high expectations.
