Publisher Description

Enter the world of the Others in the first novel in New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop’s thrilling fantasy series: a place where unearthly entities—vampires and shape-shifters among them—rule the Earth and prey on the human race. 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.

    " Anne Bishop never disappoints! Her characters are distinctive and memorable. She plunges her readers into her worlds, and now she has done it again. Meg is a young woman running from her captors, and ends up in the Courtyard in the city of Lakeside. Courtyards are run by the Others, also known as Terra indigene, the oldest inhabitants of the world. Humans are "clever meat" who are allowed to lease land and resources in places, and the Courtyards are a way for the Terra Indigenergy to keep an eye on the humans. But humans have forgotten who truly rules the world. They're about to be reminded... "
