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.

Written in Red, like the books which follow it, are set in a universe where man is not the dominant predator. Our heroine, in this first one, makes friends with Mr. Erebus Sanguinati - a very powerful vampire. So I'm using it for Vampires. It would also work for Werewolves, Supernatural, or M...
It is not often that a book is recommended to me as much as Written in Red (and the entire Others series really) has been recommended to me. Over the last few years I have heard so many great things about it that I decided to give it a go. Meg has escaped her compound and is looking for a place to h...
I think there's maybe something wrong with me. I'm utterly and profoundly bored by this book. You get this impression Meg is on the run but has no real sense of urgency. You get the sense that she's a total outsider in a dangerous place but ho-de-hum, having great days and just the nicest gal ever.I...
