Synopsis: The Others freed the cassandra sangue to protect the blood prophets from exploitation, not realizing their actions would have dire consequences. Now the fragile seers are in greater danger than ever before—both from their own weaknesses and from those who seek to control their divinations for wicked purposes. In desperate need of answers, Simon Wolfgard, a shape-shifter leader among the Others, has no choice but to enlist blood prophet Meg Corbyn’s help, regardless of the risks she faces by aiding him.
Meg is still deep in the throes of her addiction to the euphoria she feels when she cuts and speaks prophecy. She knows each slice of her blade tempts death. But Others and humans alike need answers, and her visions may be Simon’s only hope of ending the conflict.
For the shadows of war are deepening across the Atlantik, and the prejudice of a fanatic faction is threatening to bring the battle right to Meg and Simon’s doorstep…

Book provided by NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
When I started this book I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to find back into the series, because I read the last book in the series like a year ago. But it was pretty easy to remember everything that happened.
The relationship between the Courtyard and the humans changed a lot. Some are now enemies and some are now under their protection. It’s happening. The dynamics are changing.
But the real change in relationship I wanted to see was between Simon and Meg. But no, didn’t really happen. There was one minor scene that maybe changed something, but that was on the last page, so I’m not sure where it will lead.
Even though I liked it, I think I would have liked it more if it hadn’t be so long, because in some part of the story just dragged. It probably feels like this because of all the scene that are from the POV of the cops. I never liked those scene. I think there are kinda boring, but I get why they are there.
Also in comparison to the previous two books this was just … I don’t know… dull maybe. Couldn’t pull me under like the previous ones.
But I still enjoyed reading this (the world Bishop created is just awesome!) and I hope to read the next book in series soon.
