You know that book that you start it and don’t want to put it down. And then when it is done you are excited to read the next installment. Written in Red (A Novel of the Others Book 1) by Anne Bishop was one of those books for me. Her is her website https://www.annebishop.com/b.written.red.html
In this book, Earth is inhabited by humans but they are not the top of the food chain.

The true rulers are called the Others that incorporate entities such as shapeshifters, vampires, and elementals and as far as they are concerned humans only good as prey. Humans may be expanding across the world, but every so often they have to be reminded who is really in power.

This story focuses around Meg Corbyn, who shows up in the middle of a storm, half frozen asking for a job in the Lakeside Courtyard, where the Others have business district that is open for both humans and Others. Simon, a shapeshifter, needs a human liaison for the district. He knows there is something different about Meg, she doesn’t smell like prey and she is hiding something.

Meg has definitely got secrets. She has escaped from servitude as a blood prophet (when she cuts herself, she has visions), her owners want her back and they are not afraid to play dirty. Can Meg find a place with the Others or will she just get eaten?

I feel the theme of this books is being open to learn about another culture and how to communicate and build relationships. Just because someone is frightening, a little kindness and respect can open doors.

This is a really fast, good read and I can’t wait to read the next in the series.
