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.

At first the story seems a little bit boring and confusing with all the different narrator's talking. I'm normally not a huge fan of multiple people talking in a story, but as the story progresses it all blends together and works. I love this different reality and the diffent types of others. The narrator her self made this book come alive and also made the story flow together for me. I will definitely be reading the other books and hope they keep captivating and entertaining me the way this one has.

I couldn't stop listening to this beautiful and tragic story. Seeing how much pain and suffering this poor little girl had to go thought because of her mother and stepfather enraged me. But otieno brought tears to my eyes with his love for her. It puts you through ups and downs but you just want to stay their with the character's.

Twelve-year-old Eon has been training for years. His intensive study of Dragon Magic, based on Oriental astrology, involves two kinds of skills: sword-work and magical aptitude. He and his master hope that he will be chosen as a Dragoneye - an apprentice to one of the 12 energy dragons of good fortune.

But Eon has a dangerous secret. He is actually Eona, a 16-year-old girl who has been masquerading as a 12-year-old boy for the chance to become a Dragoneye.

This book was spectacular. the narration was clear and very well versed and every part of the story was brought to life. Every few chapters or so I got a little bit board, but the last few chapters really brought it home and made it excellent.
