Description:

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's been a while since I read the first and second book in this series so I had forgotten a lot of what had gone down previously but I did remember Simon and Meg and their tentative relationship/friendship.

So this picks up where the last left off with Humans and the Others still at odds, especially with the Humans First and Last party creating issues that don't exist to further their end. The cassandra sangue, now freed, are still struggling to keep themselves sane but Meg and her friends in the courtyard decide to make some sort of book on what to expect to help them try and integrate. And then there's Monty and the unexpected arrival of his daughter Lizzy and her favourite bear that are carrying secrets.

This is another one of those need to read every line books - I admit it, I do skip paragraphs sometimes! - because if you skip things you miss something important. There is just so much happening in these books.

I am still very much pro-Others, or at least Simon's Courtyard. They've just grown on me a lot over the last three books from these rather terrifying creatures that cared little for humans to these creatures willing to protect their human "pack" - the people they have grown fond of who reside in their Courtyard.

I'm also still hoping for a Simon/Meg romance and it does seem to be happening but in tiny increments all the time. A certain thought here, a touch there. It's kinda cute.

I'll be reading more of this series at some point in the future.
