Just another GR refugee. Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.
I really wanted to read this series, and unfortunately it seems my library has roughly every other book in a format I can use. So I started with the second book, Murder of Crows, but I don't think I had too much trouble figuring out what was going on.
Back in the winter, in Written in Red, Meg Corbyn (alias cs759) fled the compound where she, along with many other girls, was held captive, and the man known as the Controller, who ran it. Meg fled on a wild course evading her pursuers, and ended up in the city of Lakehaven, and took the only job she could find - Human Liaison at the city's diplomatic Courtyard. (Humans are not the dominant predators of this universe's Earth; the terra indigenes are. Our folklore refers to some of them as vampires and werewolves. Some of them are much scarier.)
As it turned out, this was the best thing she could have done. For Meg was no normal human - she was a cassandra sangue - a blood prophet. And the terra indigenes were the only ones who might be able to keep her safe.
I read this for Supernatural, but it would also qualify for Monsters, Vampires, or Werewolves.
