As a cassandra sangue, or blood prophet, Meg Corbyn can see the future when her skin is cut—a gift that feels more like a curse. Meg’s Controller keeps her enslaved so he can have full access to her visions. But when she escapes, the only safe place Meg can hide is at the Lakeside Courtyard—a business district operated by the Others.
Shape-shifter Simon Wolfgard is reluctant to hire the stranger who inquires about the Human Liaison job. First, he senses she’s keeping a secret, and second, she doesn’t smell like human prey. Yet a stronger instinct propels him to give Meg the job. And when he learns the truth about Meg and that she’s wanted by the government, he’ll have to decide if she’s worth the fight between humans and the Others that will surely follow
I don't tend to read books that are really heavy fantasy so it was hard to get into this book because of that, but in the end I got past that and I really enjoyed this novel.
The book follows five or so POVS so you get to see what every character is thinking about and I doubt there was a single character I did not enjoy reading, expect maybe the villains in the story but that is pretty much a given.
If you cry easily get ready to cry buckets during this book, I did.
I recommend this book to those who enjoy both fantasy and paranormal, werewolfs, vampires, elementals this book has it all, and also love great characters that you are rooting for and hating by the end of the book.
And I already have the next book on hold, yay! :D Plus expect a whole lot more Anne Bishop in the future, because I love her writing so much.
