Publisher's Summary

Fourth in the "flawless" (The Reading Café) New York Times best-selling series from the author of Vision in Silver.
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....

Terrible Narrator

I could not make it through this one. I had forgotten how horrible Alexandra Harris does voices, especially the males. She makes Simon, the main male character, sound like a huge jerk, even though he is really not written that way. I just couldn't get past her.

A Little Disappointing

This series is one of my favorites and I've been waiting in great anticipation for this fourth book to be released. Perhaps my expectations were too high after the previous three and the wait for this one but it felt rather drawn out with not a lot happening. All of these books surprise me really because there's a lot of the day to day interactions between the characters going on with spurts of excitement. But this book dealt too much with broad strokes and big picture and very little was added about the personal relationships between the characters. Maybe this is needed for where the story is headed. I'm still looking forward to the next book (assuming there is one). I only wish this book had been shorter. With a bit tighter story telling it might not have seemed so slow.
