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.

4.5 starsThis book is different from most of the ones I've read that have vampires and werewolves. The Others aren't traditional versions of these creatures. There are all different forms of Others also. Some are season spirits and forms of nature and weather. It's really cool, very creative. I...
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...
