Synopsis:

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…

Review:

It was so great to be back with Simon, Meg and the rest of the gang in the others series. I have missed them so much. However now I have to wait another year for the next chapter in their story. So not fair, but I will wait. How could I not? Everything about this series is so captivating. This is urban fantasy at it’s best.

The first half of the book focuses on giving the reader lots of information about everything that has already happened and happening with the Human First and Last movement. Some new charters are introduced, both good and bad and some that I’m still unsure about and would like to know more about.

While there didn’t seem to be a ‘big’ action event towards the end of the book, there was still some pretty major things to happen. I couldn’t believe when I was reading it that the terra indigene would like to go that far with the humans, but they do take threats very seriously. It was just a bit of a shock really.

The relationship between Simon and Meg. This is a whole other thing. It’s there but at the same time it’s not. There is just something about this couple that is so intriguing. Can’t wait to see were they are heading.

And the ending is just beautiful.

Since the series was originally 3 books, I can see how this book could be more of an information filler in the series, but I wouldn’t be skipping over it because I may have just miss something that is important in the next books. No author does world building quite like Anne Bishop. I love it so much. Can’t wait for the next one in the series now.

{Meme} Top Ten Books I Really Want To Read But Don’t Own Yet

This should be easy, shouldn’t it? I mean I have way more than ten books that I am waiting for, but I don’t really know which ones are my top ten.

1) HANDS DOWN!!! One Night: Denied by Jodi Ellen Malpas
The first book was just sitting on my bookcase begging to be read. I tried, I really did but I just had to read it. Now I have to wait for the second one. Good news, I have pre-ordered it. So as soon as it’s out, it is mine.

2) Play by Kylie Scott
I know the eBook version is out, but I have been very good in not buying it and reading it. I don’t know why I do this myself  but I will wait for the paperback to be released.

3) First Debt by Pepper Winters
The next book in this series. Loved the first one so much and already want the second one now

4) Professor Cline by J.M. La Rocca
All the teasers look really good. Need another dark romance author to like. Hopefully this one will fill the gap

5) Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop
The last book in The Others series. Really want to know what will happen and how it will end.

6) Jealously by S. L. Scott
The first book was just so different to anything I have read recently. Must read the next one to know what happens.

7) Pulse by Gail McHugh
Yes I know this one is already out, but I still haven’t got around to purchasing it yet. Better get there soon and put myself out off this misery. The ending for the first book was just… cliffhanger…

8) Control By CD Reiss
Have read the first three books in the songs of submission series. Now I just need to read the rest of them

9) Rock Chick by Kristen Ashley
Have read some good things about this series. Maybe it’s time I found out what all the fuss is about

10) The Rest of the James Bond Series by Ian Fleming
So I have read the first book in the series but still have to get around to reading the rest. Only interested in reading the original series by Ian Fleming thou.
