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.

For example, the main character's 'special snowflake' characteristics (most of the Others, who hate humans and view them pr...
So here is the thing: I´m not a big fan of urban fantasy. There is something about the world building and the characters that I can´t connect with and more than often there is a quickly escalating love story thrown in the mix, which leads to excessive eye-rolling on my behalf. So consider me surpris...
