My Thoughts: The Cursed Prophet That You Can't Help But Hope Gets Her Happy Ending

   This trilogy at first read seems to be just a series of unfortunate events one after another. But here's the thing, Megg Jensen creates this heroine in a world that makes you believe there must be a happy ending at the end, therefore I must continue till the end. The way the books go there's no stopping after the first or second book, you must finish it all to see how it ends. And not to ruin anything but there is hope that the characters do find peace and a semblance of happiness in the end. But I don't want to spoil anything.
      The heroine of the trilogy is introduced as a lowly slave girl named Reychel, who is dreading her fifteenth birthday. For those in her caste, her fifteenth birthday is when her master claims his property by branding them, so they will forever be seen as slaves. After witnessing her best friends ceremony, Reychel knows it will be painful and hopes to get out it but sees no way. However, the whispers of slaves be taken in the night and disappearing without a sound does not appear to just be slave talk or hopeful rumors, when a robbed figure comes to Reychel offering her a way out. Reychel thinking she will go unnoticed like the other who've disappeared before her takes her chance to escape. It's that moment that events begin to unfold as Reychel discovers hidden things about herself, sees what the world outside is like, finds out who to trust, and ultimately unfolds what her destiny is as the cloud prophet.  
      Overall, I loved this series. I remember reading the first book then going, "What?! Come on!" And then grabbed up the second book, because I just HAD to know what was going to happen to poor Reychel. As a heroine she's complex, ultimately her strongest trait is also her weakest, which is her understanding heart. Reychel to easily forgave enemies and chose to see the good in people, which lead to many a skirmishes and backstabbing. Luckily Reychel had people in her life who truly had her back including her amazing man Mark. Without Mark as Reychel's anchor I'm not sure she would have survived. Anyways just thinking about the last few chapters in Severed makes me want to tear up. The author does a great job in connecting readers with Reychel's plights and one can't help cheering her on hoping she gets that HEA. But you'll have to read and see if it's your idea of a HEA or the perfect HEA for Reychel, I don't want to completely spoil the series for you so you have to read and see. 

Now be forewarned listed below are each books descriptions none are too revealing BUT still read at your own risk. I dare ya!

Reychel thought she was finally free.
She was wrong. 

Everyone saw her gift of prophecy as a blessing, but her gift is uncontrollable. No one alive can teach her to manipulate her unique gift and the answers she needs lie buried within a madman’s journals. 

She’s thrust in the midst of a brewing war and the only uniting factor for her people is their belief in the Prophet. Will Reychel learn to control her gift or will she be forced to deliver a false prophecy that could lead her people into a violent, unwinnable war?

Reychel knows her gift of prophecy will lead to madness and now she is at her most vulnerable. The enemy army will attempt to sever her from everything she's ever known: her homeland, her friends, Mark, and her gift. Even at her weakest, she refuses to give up on her desire to end the war between the Malborn and the Serenians. Reychel would do anything, even come back from the dead, to conquer the enemy and reunite with Mark.

A novelette bridging the Cloud Prophet Trilogy and The Swarm Trilogy

Before Anathema... 

Before Sleepers... 

There was The Initiate 

Over a thousand years ago, the gods left Eloh's people and took their magic with them. To win back their favor, her people sacrifice ten female initiates every ten years. No has ever survived. There has never been a Chosen One. 

Forced into becoming an initiate, Eloh will try to find a way to beat the odds, stay with her boyfriend, and survive the fires that threaten to consume her. But will her lack of faith in the gods and her disbelief in their magic doom her to a painful death?
