No one creates realms like New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop. Now in a thrilling new fantasy series, enter a world inhabited by the Others, unearthly entities--vampires and shape-shifters among them--who rule the Earth and whose prey are ...
humans. 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.
She wasn't going to give in. She wasn't going to hand over her body like it was someone else's property. She would fight as hard as she could for as long as she could. The only thing she would gain from fighting was her own sense of being a personShe wasn't going to give in. She wasn't going to hand over her body like it was someone else's property. She would fight as hard as she could for as long as she could. The only thing she would gain from fighting was her own sense of being a person instead of a thing, because the end would be the same. This was the beginning of the prophecy she'd seen about herself. This was the night she was going to die.
Okay, now. This book just made my week. Why? Well... I didn't want to put in down, in the first place. Meg is not like the others hero of any others book. She is a cassandra sangue, a clairvoyant girl who runaway from the place where she was kept. And of all the places in which she could landing, she arrived in the Courtyard of Lakeside. She is a human girl, a gentle one, with strong will but fragile limbs and her skin is precious. And what The Others are doing with her? Make her their most appreciate human in the area, an incredible friend and a little toy to play with. The Others may be terrific things, but all I have seen is a buch of strange guys of all size awfully nice and handsome and pleasent. Okay, it's pratically the same word over and over again, but you know what I mean.
