Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop
The Other #2
Read April 2014
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.

#1 Written In Red
#2 Murder Of Crows
Meg’s story continues on from ‘Written in Red’, the first book in ‘The Others’ series. However this time the danger comes in the form of two new drugs on the market and people murdering crows just for fun. It is up to everyone in Lakeside to figure out a way to stop it before the ‘bomb’ goes off.
It feel like I have been waiting forever to read this book and was not disappointed; loved it from start to finish. The story is captivating, with most of the same characters returning from the first book, along with new ones. The danger is growing more and more and hopefully the next book will bring some more answers.
Do any of them realize that Simon Wolfgard is falling in love with Meg Corbyn? Monty wondered. Does Wolfgard understand his own response to the girl? What about Meg? How does she feel? What would the rest of the Others do if one of their kind did fall in love with a human?
The only downside is the wait for the next book now.
Okay. I picked up a movie to watch tonight. You can watch it with me if you like. It’s a chick movie. Merri Lee said that means girls like it, not that there are small birds in it.
