Joint Discussion: Murder of Crows

Hello all! Blodeuedd and I will be discussing "Murder of Crows" by Anne Bishop. I am in red and Carole is in black. 

Murder of Crows (The Others, #2)
Author: Anne Bishop

Narrator: Alexandra Harris
Title: Murder of Crows
(The Others #2)
Genre: Paranormal, UF, Fantasy, & romance
Published: March 4th 2014
Pages: Audiobook

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.

SO so so!! Did it get better? :D

Yesss, it did. Much, much better! Not sure if it was the story, the audio aspect, or both. But I enjoyed it much more. Still some issues especially with having some more questions about this world. BUT I got a lot answered in this one. 

Let’s say audio. I mean yes I know the world now, but when I looked back at my old review I had issues, while now I seem to like the characters more. Alexandra Harris is just that good.

I adore that narrator! She has voices for everyone and she sticks to it. I never get confused. There are a LOT of characters running around and she made it easy to follow. 

Yes, I never have to wonder who is speaking, I love her voices for everyone. She is fantastic! I am a total Harris fangirl.

I want more by the narrator! And the author is getting better and I’m warming up to the author! LOL

I have only listened to her with these books, but yes I want more too! And good that Bishop is growing on you ;D SO I guess I should ask about issues that you still have

The ending made me mad. I also am not a huge fan of Simon...but I’m warming up to him. Meg still annoys me. Again...I warmed up a tiny, tiny bit to her. And this world confuses me. Just kill the humans and call it good. Little rats. 

I have grown to like Meg now. I feel like I get her now and then she does not annoy me anymore. I am also in love with Simon *cough cough* I freaking love him, there I said it.
And yes, DEATH to most humans. DEATH! Let them be eaten those mofos.

There is something so grating about Meg. She is still adjusting...I I don’t hate her. Just annoyed. And Simon is getting under my wall. LOL He was very sweet in this. I like that Henry guy and the vamp. They are fun. UGGHHH HATE THE HUMANS! Just get rid of them and be done with it. 

 Simon!!!! And I love Vlad and Henry too. Tess is awesome, let her take everyone down. So many great characters that you just have to care about.

Yesss, there are a couple that I do have my worries about. I feel like someone is going to betray someone. Just a feeling I’m having. LOL

Can you spoil it? I want to know *wiggles eyebrows* shoulda been here when I did my psychic reading ;) hehehehe. 

Oh you are EVIL! Lol. But I am glad that the series won you over. Aren’t you curious to see if the world will burn and humans will be burnt meat`?

I am cheering for the humans to be taken down. Sure there are a few good ones...but they are so dumb. SOOOOO dumb. C’mon. There are more of these supernatural creatures and they rule the roost. Just be thankful they are not eating you. 

I do like that she made it like that, cos humans are fucking stupid. SO effing stupid. We get slapped in the face with the truth time after time and still when something happens we are so what happened?!?! HOW!?!?

WHY ARE YOU KILLING US!? killed innocents sooooo. *shrugs* SMH. Those poor dumb crow shifters. I would hate to be a crow shifter. I would wanna be a wolf or bear or tiger. 

Hey, do not call them dumb! I love Jenny :/ They can’t help that they love the shiny. And I would be an elemental. All the way

LOLL i say dumb with affection ;) But I wanted to smack ‘em! Like you are being targeted bros! RESIST TEMPTATION OF THE TRASH! RESIST!


BAD SHINIES! BAD! *shakes fist* And being an elemental would be cool. But I want to be something fuzzy. 

I am sure you would make a great, hmm, what are you, sorry Carole, not a wolf, not a bear, maybe a cat of a sort? What do you guys have there? Pumas, cougars,...tricky. Lol, what are you

If we’re going based on the location I would be a bobcat...short and stubby. BAHAHAHA

Awww you look adorable, and fierce.

Little and fierce. Sounds like me. Haha

I do not know if I have the actual temper of an elemental, I am sure to be an animal too.

Mhmmmm. If not an elemental….what furry thing would you be? Maybe a lynx?

I’d love to be a cat, but you know what, I am a wolverine, elusive, but fierce. No one minds me and then boom. Though lynxes are So much cuter. Scratch that I wanna be a fox

We would be great. Grr Humans! Ok so we got so out of track. Anything more to add?

 I say they should have said f all humans and done more. They are being too nice, and nice gets you killed.

Yep. Especially with dealing with idiots like humans. 

On to the next on then! YAY

Onward! :D 

About the Authors
Carole and Blodeuedd have been blogging a long while now. The last couple of years the epic duo have been discussing books, watching movies, and even wetting the pen and sharing their stories with the worldwide web. They both love cats, chocolate, and a good story.


  1. I love this series! I hope you'll both continue to enjoy this. :)

    1. I know I will since I have read it, and I hope Carole will too

  2. I haven't read her yet but she's on my list to read at some point.

    1. SHe is great, you have to read this series

  3. I know I'm an outlier but I liked the series less as it went on. I don't care AT ALL about the humans and it just gets bogged down in details of their lives.
    I was never irritated with The Others or Meg though.
    I wonder if audio would be better for me too.

    Karen @ For What It's Worth

    1. The humans need to die!

      Hmm, my interest kept going up when I read this series, but yes try it again in audio ;)

  4. So the humans need to go, clearly... :)

  5. I love the audios to this series! I read the books, and then listened to the audios and it was even better! Glad you two are having fun. and yes, the humans need to pull their heads out! :)

  6. Glad these books are growing on you. I listened to the first few in audio, and I agree the narrator is stellar.

  7. I just wrapped up book four and am loving on this world and its characters. Ugh, down with humans!
    I'll have to try one on audio so I can hear the wonderful narrator.

    1. It will get worse, damn those humans.

      Yes do them in audio too

  8. Wait... have you met Skippy yet? It took me a couple books to like Harris - but I was stuck listening to the first couple books at 1x speed, which was WAY TOO SLOW. So once I could speed it up some, I liked it much better. This is audio-only for me. I wonder if she'll do any more in this world?!

    1. 1x, you crazy woman!
      Ever since doing 6 and 7 I knew I had to and do a listen :D
