    As a cassandra sangue, or blood prophet, Meg Corbyn can see the future when her skin is cut - a gift that feels more like a curse. Meg's Controller keeps her enslaved so he can have full access to her visions. But when she escapes, the only safe place Meg can hide is at the Lakeside Courtyard - a business district operated by the Others. Shape-shifter Simon Wolfgard is reluctant to hire the stranger who inquires about the Human Liaison job.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The author builds a world that is detailed and unique. A fresh addition to the urban fantasy landscape. The society of the others is rich iwith unforgetable characters. A history steeped in lore, violence and mystery..


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Written in Red?

    The climatic storm and how it impacts each character.


    What about Alexandra Harris’s performance did you like?

    At first I thought her voice too timid, but I realized that that voice worked for Meg and gained assurance with the character. As more characters were introduced Alexandra Harris gave each character a unique vocal personality.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The Others rule this world, human enter, if you dare!

    What did you love best about The Ashford Affair?

    The changing society. How the life that the elite of society lived before World War I was shattered out of it's cozy cocoon by the reality of war, and how people adapted to the new world, or didn"t. Also, how do we cope in the present when our past is not as we always believed it to be.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Addy and Bea are the heart of this story, their complex relationship it's beat.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No favorite scene, this is a story that unravels, like a scarf with a pulled thread.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Ashford Affair and why?

    The settings were characters. England, New York, and the majesty of Kenya in the 1920"s.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to Lauren Willig's Pink Carnation series. This author is one of my go to's.
