Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop

Length: 14 hrs and 13 mins

Date Read: March 2014

Genre: Fantasy, Urban Fantasy

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 murders 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 whether their blood prophet dreamed of a past attack or of 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.

JUST A NOTE: Read It File It is for books that I have read that I need to keep track of. The reviews will be super short (think tweet longer length) but will serve the purpose of getting the books into UBB for tracking purposes 🙂

First Thought when Finished: Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop was freaking AMAZING!

Read It File It: I could pretty much sum up Murder of Crows as an adrenaline ride that kept me biting my nails, screaming at the book, and not wanting to turn off the audiobook till it was all over. The end had me both smiling and crying. Overall I just couldn’t have asked for a better ride.

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated by: Alexandra Harris /Length: 14 hrs and 13 mins

Alexandra nailed it! The pacing and emotion fit the story perfectly. She just doesn’t quite get Simon for me but that is just that I want him growly deep. She does his part quite well otherwise.

Final Thoughts: Get thee to the store but don’t read out of order!

  1. You are a crier? It is so hard to get me to cry but really easy to get me to laugh. I do have to admit this one did get to me emotionally as well. It is now among my favorite new urban fantsy!

  2. Yay! I’m so glad you loved this one too! You never know is everyone else is going to love it as much as you did. I know what we all are going to be doing the day is the next book release 🙂

  3. SOON! I’m actually thinking about trying this on in audio–you aren’t the only one who thinks it was awesome, and I think it would keep me from getting so bogged down in the details . . .

    • You should. I can’t read more fantasy centered UF books, I have to listen to them. I get to mired down in details otherwise. With audio it is like I just focus on the story and the the details fall into the background.

  4. I love these books so much and have heard so many great things about this audiobooks I decided to buy them, I just need to find the time to listen to them.

    • She really did a bang up job on the narration. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. I will be curious what you think after reading them though. I want to know (when you get time) if the narration matches how you thought when reading 🙂
