Anathema (The Cloud Prophet Trilogy #1)
Author: Megg Jensen
3 1/2 out of 5 Stars
Forget prophecy. Make your own destiny.
Sheltered from the outside world with no hope for escape, slave girl Reychel dreads her fifteenth birthday - when her master’s symbol is burned on the back of her bald scalp. Her best friend disappears the night before, leaving her to face the branding ceremony alone. She soon discovers nothing is as it seems when people desperate for freedom beg for Reychel's help.
Can Reychel learn to believe in herself?
What a creative story. Megg has created a unique world full of magic, and gifted individuals who possess unnatural abilities. This story gives you a old world setting but the characters give off the modern day interactions. It has perfect balance. It has action, romance, and deciept, which keeps you guessing on what will happen next. I gave this three stars only because it was slow at parts for me, but it is a younger YA book. Enjoy!
