Series: The Others #3
Tensions between humans and the others are rising. Although the others did what was right by freeing the cassandra sangue (a.k.a. blood prophets) in Murder of Crows, humans are using that against them. The Humans First and Last movement has been gaining traction. The question is how are the others going to fight back?
Meg’s main role was to help the cassandra sangue that had been freed. She is by far the most functional of them all. Considering how the others reacted to freedom, Meg’s level of stability is impressive. Although compared to the previous novels, it seemed like her anxiety was slightly worse than it had been before. Meg didn’t have quite as much page time as in the other books. Most of the time she was not with Simon. I love it when they interact, and I wish there had been more of it.
The human side of things played a much bigger role. In Written in Red the human perspectives were somewhat boring and pointless, but with all of the conflict in this Burke and Monty’s POV were interesting. Someone from Monty’s past showed up in his life causing trouble for humans and the others. The humans are starting to cause enough trouble that the others who live deep in the wild are beginning to take notice. Even the others who have contact with humans are afraid of them.
Anyone that loved the prior two books will love this. I didn’t want to put it down and already wish I had the next one.
Thank you so much to netgalley for giving me this ARC!!!
