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 murders 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 whether their blood prophet dreamed of a past attack or of 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
Murder of Crows begins with Meg seeing something bad happen to the Crows. She doesn't understand exactly what's going on with her, the Crows, or Simon. The Crows she keeps having visions about but she didn't need to cut herself. Then with Simon she woke up to him sleeping beside her as a human not wolf. She isn't sure what to think about that, and she's not sure how to figure out how to help herself either. With more humans out to try to take over the Others, and with the Others not going to put up with tension is rising in the communities. And Simon can't understand his feelings towards Meg, any more than she understands hers towards him. But they must stand together to help out the humans, and the Others.
I really liked this one, but it wasn't as good as the first one. I loved how we are getting to see a little bit of maybe Meg and Simon having some kind of relationship. Even though I think that will be seriously hard to accomplish. But I do hope to see Simon and Meg get together. Because as of now they have this beautiful relationship. And Meg is one of the sweetest heroines ever. I wish there had been more of her point of view in this story, but it was still really good. And now I look forward to more in this series!
