This book is amazingly good! It is totally unique.
The story is mainly about Meg who is a blood prophet and all of her life she has lived in captivity because her captor sells her visions. One day Meg manages to break free and she decided to take her chance living in Lakeside Courtyard where human laws do not apply. In this world of the "others" Meg finds friends and actually gets to experience all of the things she has read about.
The "others" are not a friendly bunch and they are at the top of the food chain. They seem to relish the times when humans go to far and they can eat them. Part of what makes this book so great is the evolution of relationships.
I really do not want to say much more because it could turn very spoilery.
