|Summary, etc.:|| "New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop returns to her world of the Others, as humans struggle to survive in the shadow of shapeshifters and vampires far more powerful than themselves... After a human uprising was brutally put down by the Elders--a primitive and lethal form of the Others--the few cities left under human control are far-flung. And the people within them now know to fear the no-man's-land beyond their borders--and the darkness... As some communities struggle to rebuild, Lakeside Courtyard has emerged relatively unscathed, though Simon Wolfgard, its wolf shifter leader, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn must work with the human pack to maintain the fragile peace. But all their efforts are threatened when Lieutenant Montgomery's shady brother arrives, looking for a free ride and easy pickings. With the humans on guard against one of their own, tensions rise, drawing the attention of the Elders, who are curious about the effect such an insignificant predator can have on a pack. But Meg knows the dangers, for she has seen in the cards how it will all end--with her standing beside a grave.."-- Provided by publisher.

In the aftermath of the human slaughter of the shifters and the devastating response by the Terra Indigene guardians, the Elders argue about what to do about the remaining humans. Lakeside Courtyard has emerged as an example for other communities in which humans and the Terra Indigene coexist. Some of the Elders visit, to observe and learn what they can about humans. Meg Corbyn and Simon Wolfgard remain at the center of the story, negotiating their own relationship as they work to maintain peace between the shifters and the humans. When Lieutenant Montgomery's abusive grifter brother, Cyrus, shows up, they'd just as soon send him packing, but the Elders ask that he be allowed to remain so they can see how the community handles a human predator. This, unsurprisingly, leads to tensions rising as Cyrus tries to lie and steal his way to easy luxury, and learns that shifter law is enforced rather differently than human law. The small struggles of the Lakeside community have increasingly wide-ranging effects, and even Meg and Simon's relationship has larger implications for this worldâand it is, ultimately, a hopeful story, in which cooperation and community make all the difference.
