REVIEW – MARKED IN FLESH BY ANNE BISHOP

marked in flesh cover
For centuries, the Others and humans have lived side by side in uneasy peace. But when humankind oversteps its bounds, the Others will have to decide how much humanity they’re willing to tolerate—both within themselves and within their community…

Since the Others allied themselves with the cassandra sangue, the fragile yet powerful human blood prophets who were being exploited by their own kind, the delicate dynamic between humans and Others changed. Some, like Simon Wolfgard, wolf shifter and leader of the Lakeside Courtyard, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn, see the new, closer companionship as beneficial—both personally and practically.

But not everyone is convinced. A group of radical humans is seeking to usurp land through a series of violent attacks on the Others. What they don’t realize is that there are older and more dangerous forces than shifters and vampires protecting the land that belongs to the Others—and those forces are willing to do whatever is necessary to protect what is theirs…

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

MARKED IN FLESH is full of suspense, intrigue that will have you on the edge of your seat. I love the characters and the world building. Some of my favorite characters are, Tess, Meg, Sam and Simon. In this series, each book gets darker as the story progresses.  The Human First and Last movement continues with their plan to eradicate the Others and take their land so they will have more for the Humans. The others fight back by attacking their shipping vessels and any shipments by land, to show them that they are not in charge of things. The HFL  (Human First and Last) starts to attack settlements of Others, and this enrages the Others. They have warned them, but as always the Humans do not listen! They do not learn from their past when this happened before. The others eradicated off their land before. Now, things are escalating and Simon and Meg has to figure out who they need to save once the cleansing gets started. This shows how greed can be the down fall of civilizations, and how that ignoring the past, we are doomed to repeat our mistakes. I loved this story and series, and recommend it to everyone. I give MARKED IN FLESH 5.5 STARS.

MURDER OF CROWS BY ANN BISHOP

Book Description

March 4, 2014
Return to New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop’s “phenomenal” (Urban Fantasy Investigations) world of the Others—where supernatural entities and humans struggle to co-exist, and one woman has begun to change all the rules…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 murder 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 if their blood prophet dreamed of a past attack or 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.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON
This is the second installment in the Ann Bishop’s Other series, and like the last one it has its funny moments,. This book was much darker in tone than the last book WRITTEN IN RED. WRITTEN IN RED,was basically lighter and had more laugh out loud moments. It was basically dealing with Sam the nephew of Simon. MURDER OF CROWS is now dealing with someone who is tainting the food supply and the trash that the Crowgaurd like to go through for things that the humans throw away that are shiny and barely used or broken. When the crows eat the food they get to where they will not move out-of-the-way of people or cars, and many are killed. Meg has seen this in one of her prophecies.
More of the drug GONE OVER WOLF,and another drug. They have to find out who is doing this and stop it. Also Simon is starting to become jealous over Meg. He is thinking of her as his Meg, and he don’t want the other Terra Indigne thinking that he is acting more human than wolf. He is not quite sure how to deal with these feelings about Meg, and he knows that mating with a human is not possible. He is basically at a loss of what to do. Meg is also having to sort through her feelings about Simon. This was a great book to read, with a well-developed story line and characters.  I can’t wait to see if there will be more to this series. I love MURDER OF CROWS, and I give it 5/5 stars.
