Return to New York Times bestselling 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.



  • The narration in this book didn't sit well with me. The way the narrator pronounced certain words differently from the first book in the series really took me out of the story. It's unlikely that I'll continue with the series because of this. The actual story is solid, but the narrator doesn't do it justice.
  • Murder of Crows is the second book in The Others series. It was decent, but it didn't blow me away. I enjoyed most of the different perspectives, although I wasn't a fan when it switched to the controller's point of view. It didn't really connect the story for me like it was supposed to. I liked the majority of the characters and how the others accepted Meg as part of their "pack" in the courtyard. They all view her as a friend now. The one thing that bothered me was Simon and Meg constantly tiptoeing around their romantic feelings. If you're going to introduce a romantic aspect, commit to it and make something happen. Now, I'm about to reveal a minor spoiler, so if you don't want to know, stop reading here. After the spoiler, I'll just complain about the narration, so you won't miss much by stopping now. Seriously, last chance to turn back if you don't want to know about Meg and Simon's relationship in future books. Are you still with me? Do you want to know about their relationship progress? Alright... I had to dig through reviews for spoilers to find this out myself. One of the main reasons I won't continue this series is because it takes until the last few pages of book 5 for them to finally kiss. Ugh, that's just frustrating. I'll pass on that. Now, moving on to the narration, I didn't really enjoy it, but I eventually got used to it. It wasn't as bad as in the first book, but I still wasn't a fan of the voices. The same narrator reads the entire series.
  • This is a really unique series in the UF/PNR genre that is delightfully addictive. This 2nd book in the series, A Murder of Crows, takes place shortly after the events of the 1st book, Written in Red, and does not disappoint! Full of action, intrigue and a slow building romance, this series is a gem and my new favorite "shiny". The narrator Alexandra Harris, is a seasoned pro giving each character a distinct accent/tone/voice which brings the story to life in a fun and engaging way. Verdict: read the series in order and enjoy a freshly thrilling perspective in the genre. Totally worth a credit. 4.5 stars.
