Summary (from Penguin Random House Canada):
For centuries, the Others and humans have lived side by side in uneasy peace. But when humankind oversteps its bounds, the Others will have to decide how much humanity they’re willing to tolerate—both within themselves and within their community...
Since the Others allied themselves with the cassandra sangue, the fragile yet powerful human blood prophets who were being exploited by their own kind, the delicate dynamic between humans and Others changed. Some, like Simon Wolfgard, wolf shifter and leader of the Lakeside Courtyard, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn, see the new, closer companionship as beneficial—both personally and practically.
But not everyone is convinced. A group of radical humans is seeking to usurp land through a series of violent attacks on the Others. What they don’t realize is that there are older and more dangerous forces than shifters and vampires protecting the land that belongs to the Others—and those forces are willing to do whatever is necessary to protect what is theirs…
Anne Bishop's Marked in Flesh, the fourth book in The Others series, is undoubtedly one of my anticipated books of 2016! Tensions between humans and the Others have never been higher, and the Lakeside Courtyard is doing what they can to protect their community. Humans have forgotten the land has always belonged to the Others, and now they've awakened forces older and more powerful than the shifters and vampires...
A blend of urban fantasy and the paranormal, I absolutely love this series. And I ship Meg and Simon together like crazy! Just talking about my excitement for Marked in Flesh makes me want to re-read the first three books again for the fifth time.
