Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop

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.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

As Namid's terrible creation, Meg rises to the challenge in book two as the innocent heroine senses prophecies to save the day. Startling occurrences in book two lead everyone to the cassandra sangue as the source behind the drugs making humans do terrible things. The blood is not meant to be ingested and the terra indigenes will allow no harm to come to her. I enjoyed the freshness of this story and the steady plot as Meg and Simon piece together the mystery of where Meg came from. I enjoyed the mystery and the relationship between Simon and Meg bloom a little bit. Five stars for an intriguing fantasy novel.

Plot: Five stars
Character Chemistry: Five stars
