Murder of Crows - Anne Bishop

Serie: The Others #2
Release year: 2014
Stars: 4/5

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.

After book 1 (Review) I couldn't wait to start this book. I'm always kind of afraid that de second book is a huge dissappointment. I mean you know the characters, you know the world, so it has to be al about the story, what's going to happen next? Luckily this book didn't dissappoint at all! I loved it as much as the first one. 

What I love most about the serie is the characters. There are many characters in the book, but it doesn't matter, you're going to love them all. The interactions with everyone is just great. I couldn't get enough of the book! And Megan & Simon, even though the romance isn't what the book is about, there is still romance there. I just loved how awkward the tension between the two is, how they didn't know how to handle everything. 

The story is very unique and exceptional. You can't compare it with anything I've read. You just have to read it for yourselves. I look forward to another book with all these fascinating individuals.
