In the aftermath of the attack on the Lakeside Courtyard, which nearly resulted in Meg’s death, palpable tension remains between the Others and local humans. The appearance of two addictive drugs in other territories has resulted in murder and death amongst species. Simon Wolfgard, head of the Courtyard, suspects it won’t be long before the drugs make an appearance in Lakeside. When Meg has a horrific dream of blood and feathers in the snow, she fears for her Crow friends. The swift manifestation of that prophecy indicates that time is running out, especially as Meg feels the prickling of prophecies more frequently. As Meg’s former captors seek to recapture her and exploit her gift, the Others and a few trusted humans must work together to save their friend and their community. (ROC, Mar., 368 pp., $26.95)
