Murder of Crows

A Novel of Others 

by Anne Bishop

03 . 04 . 14


From Amazon: Murder of Crows

Return to New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop’s “phenomenal” (Urban Fantasy Investigations) world of the Others—where supernatural entities and humans struggle to co-exist, and one woman has begun to change all the rules…

After winning the trust of the terra indigene residing in the Lakeside Courtyard, Meg Corbyn has had trouble figuring out what it means to live among them. As a human, Meg 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, resulting in the murder of both species in nearby cities. So when Meg has a dream about blood and black feathers in the snow, Simon Wolfgard—Lakeside’s shape-shifting leader—wonders if their blood prophet dreamed of a past attack or a future threat.

As the urge to speak prophecies strikes Meg more frequently, trouble finds its way inside the Courtyard. Now, the Others and the 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 destroy them all.



I have always loved Anne Bishop’s work.  I even made my husband drive 6 hours with me to go meet her.   I was originally a bit skeptical about this series.  Most of her other books are written in more traditional fantasy lands.  However, once I gave Written in Red a chance, I could NOT put it down…and have actually re-read it since.  Once after recommending Written in Red to one of my closest friends, I received a text that said “I finished the book, and I hate you.  Did you know the sequel doesn’t come out until next year?!”  Along with others, I have been waiting for this book for what feels like forever (though its only been about a year) and have already requested off from work on March 4th so I don’t have to waste any time getting started.



What are you waiting on…?

  1. This is the 2nd week in a row I’m seeing this book and all the excited people and I was hooked the first time! I haven’t read anything by Anne Bishop but now all of you got me really excited too! 🙂 Need to pick up Written in red immediately! And what kind of job do you have that allows you to take time off for reading purposes? 🙂 And I want that job too!

      Her books really are amazing. The Written in Red series is more modern, but her Black Jewels Trilogy is pretty amazing, too. Unfortunately, I don’t have a job that lets me take off for reading….yet. I am working on that. Ultimate goal: A job that PAYS me to read! I’ll let you know how it works out!

    I did this book last week. There is no expressing how excited I am for this book. I read Written in Red when it came out last year and I was so sad to see I had a year to wait for the next one. Good choice! 😀

  8. I’ve seen a lot about these books, and lots of good reviews, and I’m really interested! I’ve never read any of Anne Bishop’s books, but I love fantasy, so I should probably try one! 🙂 Great pick!

    I also have vacation scheduled for March 4th so I can read Murder of Crows the moment it hits my kindle. I’ve re-read Written in Red probably a dozen times.
