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.

The story is good. the characters and world building were interesting. The performance left something to be desired. ma. Harris seems to have limited inflection and it was difficult to determine which characters she spoke of. Accents did not correlate and she needed better enunciation. The music at the end was intrusive.
