As a human residing among the Others of the Lakeside Courtyard, Meg Corbyn 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 in nearby cities. So when Meg has a dream about blood and black feathers in the snow, Lakeside's shape-shifting leader, Simon Woldgard, wonders whether their blood prophet dreamed of a past attack or of a future threat. Now the Others and a 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 destory them all.

13/1 - Very, very nearly as good as Written in Red! 4.75 stars. It was just the slight loss of focus on Meg, Simon and the rest of the Courtyard inhabitants that lost the book that partial point. I LOVE Simon and Meg and all the Courtyard characters and every time the plot dragged me away from them to look in on the Controller or one of the stupid human attackers I would get a little annoyed and feel the need to skip that chapter so I could get back to the Courtyard. I understand that the story wouldn't have gone anywhere without those non-Courtyard characters, but that's like saying I understand I can't spend the rest of my life eating good fettuccine carbonara, that doesn't mean I don't yearn to with every fibre of my being (no matter how illogical that yearning might be). All I want is a never-ending series where the Terre Indigene of the Courtyard spend they're days looking after Meg, she unconsciously does nice things for them which endear her to them more every day, and she and Simon continue to slowly fall in love. I don't need all the excitement of impending doom coming Meg's way, although I do admit that really keeps the pages turning, especially when there's a cliffhanger at the end of a chapter so you have to read the next chapter so that you can find out the resolution to that cliffhanger in the chapter after that. It warmed my heart every time one of the Crows or the Seasons called her 'our Meg', they just made me want to go "Aww." all the time. I cannot wait for the next book!

I picked up "Murder of Crows" after reading "Written in Red" hoping to enjoy another good read, and Bishop didn't let me down. In fact, I thought this book was better! Looking forward to reading her next novel in the series, "Vision in Silver" and just put my hold on her 4th book, "Marked in Flesh" to be published in 2016.

I am addicted to this series. As soon as I finished this one, I wanted to read the next. It doesn't have a cliff-hanger ending, I just enjoyed it so much I wanted to know what was going to happen next with Meg and the Others. Can't wait for the third book too!

Seriously loved this book. I'm a young adult and I enjoyed it immensely. I can't wait until the third book is written.
