Title: Written in Red
Series: The Others, #1
Author: Anne Bishop
Rating: 4 Shooting Stars

No one creates realms like New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop. Now in a thrilling new fantasy series, enter a world inhabited by the Others, unearthly entities—vampires and shape-shifters among them—who rule the Earth and whose prey are humans. 

 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.

Written in Red begins with Meg escaping the place she has basically been living in a cage. Now she's determined to find her way even if she may die doing it. But all this leads her to the Courtyard of the Others. So now she's in danger of them as well. But ever one of them knows Meg is different. She doesn't act or SMELL like a normal human. And the leader of this Courtyard Simon is going to figure out what is going on before it's too late. This story is like nothing of ever read before. It is this crazy fantasy land with vampires, werewolves, and bears Oh My! Yep I had to say that and well it's true. 

This story has several different kinds of supernatural creates, along with several others that are really awesome but scary dangerous. And Meg is a human among animals.. But she's also not exactly human either. She was an amazing character. She had so much standing against her but she kept fighting, and never once gave up. She wasn't weak, and she wasn't a major badass in the normal sense anyways. Meg was different from most heroine's of read about but I really liked her. I also liked Simon as well as Sam. This story is told from several peoples point of view. I loved and hated that all at the same time. But the story kept interested the whole way through, and had me constantly wondering what the heck was going to happen next. I highly recommend this book. It was very very good, and I can not wait to read more in this series!
