Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of The Black Jewels Trilogy transports readers to a world of magic and political unrest - where the only chance at peace requires a deadly price....
The Others freed the cassandra sangue to protect the blood prophets from exploitation, not realizing their actions would have dire consequences. Now the fragile seers are in greater danger than ever before - both from their own weaknesses and from those who seek to control their divinations for wicked purposes. In desperate need of answers, Simon Wolfgard, a shape-shifter leader among the Others, has no choice but to enlist blood prophet Meg Corbyn’s help, regardless of the risks she faces by aiding him.
Meg is still deep in the throes of her addiction to the euphoria she feels when she cuts and speaks prophecy. She knows each slice of her blade tempts death. But Others and humans alike need answers, and her visions may be Simon’s only hope of ending the conflict.
For the shadows of war are deepening across the Atlantik, and the prejudice of a fanatic faction is threatening to bring the battle right to Meg and Simon’s doorstep....

the flow of the series is painfully boring

I love Anne Bishop's series, my favorite being The Black Jewels Trilogy.
This serie is different and so far my favorite novel in this serie has been the first one : Written in Red.

I like : the idea for the serie is amazing. A world where the humans aren't the most conscious entity? Brilliant. Meg the victim depicted as an addict? Wonderful. One of the sweet blood being able to draw instead of cutting? Zootherapy? Genius.

I find painfully boring : the writing. It seems it's always the "good guys" viewpoint that we have since the 2nd novel (meaning mainly Simon's and if so, maybe a male narrator might be a better fit ?).

Also, I've noticed that Bishop is fixated on alpha males like Simon (or in The BJW, Daemon). While they are interesting characters, they usually aren't the ONLY ones and it's far MORE interesting to discover how someone like Meg (an addict who barely knows about the outside world) managed to color her hair, escape the compound and survive well enough to get to the Courtyard. OR how CS-821 found another way to cutting.

Heroes aren't heroes because they are strong. They are heroes because they make it an habit to overcome their weaknesses.

More Please!!!

I really love this series. I cannot wait for the next one. The first book is one of my all time favorites and I have listened to it multiple times. This book continues the story from the first two and is just a as addicting. It is not as good as book one, but I think it is stonger than book two. I hope it is not another year before we get the next installment.
