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.

This is a very interesting fantasy/dystopian series! I enjoyed the first book and I enjoyed this one as well.

Reychel has been a slave all her life and now she's finally free. But is she really? There's a prophecy about a prophet that will save all their people, and Reychel is believed to be that prophet. Except she doesn't know how she can help. Every time she looks at the clouds she doesn't get any vis

I received a free copy of this book for my honest review.

Obliette is the second book in the Cloud Prophet Trilogy and picks up right where Anathema leaves off. Reychel finds herself in the Southern Kingdom with Nemison's daughter Krissen. Nemison was left behind on the other side of the portal in the Northern Kingdom and Reychel is on her own and unsure who to trust.

I love the world that Jenson has created as well as the new characters that have been introduced. However, Krissen goes beyond get
I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first. Its a pretty decent book but I just don't love the story.

I can't think of a decent reason why I don't love it. Maybe because it feels disjointed. Like nothing 100% makes sense.

I read the first two books of the trilogy. The author does some original world-building, but the main characters come across as not quite mature enough for the roles they are given to play. The best ones seem to deal with more than the usual confusions and indecisions of leadership, and others are simply not appealing, or maybe just need to grow up. The story did keep me interested enough to make it through the second book, but I think this series is definitely intended for a teenage audience.

this was a decent series. the end is kind of an end but not really. i was hoping for a happier ending although it could have been worse.

some swearing. some passionate kissing. possible sex outside of marriage from side characters but not specific.

After the end of Anathema I was truly at a loss for where the story was going to go. I was expecting a lot of magical training sessions and discovering Reychel's gift. Boy was I in for a surprise. The plot just kept having twist after twist. Oubliette was definitely not a filler novel, like so many sequels are. Megg really keeps you on your toes with the unexpected.

At the end of Anathema things kind of ended in a shit storm. Mark ran off with the Sons, Ivy was being locked away, and Reychel was

Smashtastic Synopsis: Reychel finds herself free of slavery, but freedom comes at a high price in this world. Reychel's special gift is causing her much stress as an entire kingdom is depending on her to be their savior. Unfortunately, no one alive or available is able to teach Reychel how to control her gift, and her visions are quite sporadic. However, Reychel has one resource available to her: ancient journals fro

To see my full review:

This second novel in the Cloud Prophet Trilogy is much more refined and solid than the first, Anathema. Jensen has slowed the story down, and the development of the characters takes the forefront, allowing the story to flow together more seamlessly while providing readers with an easily understandable story that is highly enjoyable.

Reychel, a former slave, is now free and in a rival nation, hiding her abilities until the “right time.”

REVIEWED by Chris for Between the Covers blog:

I read Anathema by Megg Jensen a few months ago, and upon finishing I couldn’t wait to get to Oubliette, the second book in the trilogy. Megg had created such a fascinating world in Anathema that I couldn’t wait to read more about it. I bought Oubliette right away, but had to find the time to fit it into my TBR pile. I am sorry I waited so long to get to it because it was just as fantastic as Anathema... and maybe a little more so.

Honestly, I do not even know how to begin this . . .

To say I was excited about the release of this book would be a complete understatement.

Release day! Oh Happy Day!

Book is loaded and ready to go . . I find myself, taking in every word and just letting it linger in my mind a moment before moving on to the next. It isn't long tho . . before the book lets me know it has other ideas for my reading pleasure. It grabs hold of me and just RUNS! I tried to slow myself down reading it, but I just couldn

I finished reading Anathema a few days ago and absolutely loved it so I wanted to start reading the second book in this trilogy right away. And let me tell you I was so NOT disappointed in Oubliette!
The book starts just a few weeks after where Anathema finished, and it doesn’t just slowly get back into the book… it dives headfirst into it! I don’t know how Megg Jensen does it but she has this ability with writing that just grabs a hold of you and wont let go!

I really enjoyed this one! Again I clicked my way through in one evening and I have to say that I was impressed with how the story developed. There was enough mystery and intrigue to keep me interested and we learnt more about the fantastic world that Megg Jenson has created.

Again, there were some editing issues. Grammatical errors, missing words, some weird sentence structure etc but it wasn't overly frequent and it didn't take away from my enjoyment of the story.

Oubliette is the second novel in the Cloud Prohecy trilogy, following Anathema. Every now and then you come across a book that just hooks you, that makes you obsess a little over it. When you are reading it, you are in the story, and when it is over, you almost feel as if something is missing from yourself. That is this series for me. I love everything about it! Oubliette continues the story of Reychel, a former slave girl who suddenly discovers that her destiny is nothing like she had believed. ...more

This book picks up right from where it left off and I feel like I could not get enough! Immediately, the reader is thrown into a new city, new people, and a whole new batch of theories coming at you!

What I loved most about this book is once again, the characters. Ms. Jensen characters have this way of keeping their real identity a secret, them BAM! Explode in your face. I loved reading the descriptions and emotions of the characters. Ms. Jensen creates her characters with such secrecy that you d

Although this is the second book in a series, the author does fill the reader in on some of the details that happened in the first book. I am pretty sure that if you would choose to read them out of order you will still fully enjoy this part of the story. Although so far book 1 is my favorite, so I highly recommend reading it.

So I really loved Anathema and most of us know that the second book in a series or trilogy usually doesn't even come close to being as good as the first book. Well Oubliette was EVEN BETTER!!!! How Megg does it I have no idea. I was immediately sucked right back into Reychelle's world which was awesome since Anathema ended on a cliffhanger of sorts. Oubliette picks off exactly where Anathema ended there was no skipping ahead and I really appreciated that.

"Oubliette" is an outstanding sequel to "Anathema." This book begins two weeks after the last novel left off and from the first page the mystery and intrigue begins.

I really enjoy the writing of Megg Jensen and she is quickly becoming one of my favorite writers. Why? Because Megg knows how to capture a reading audience from the very beginning and keep them enthralled to the very end. Additionally, she does not need a lot of verbage or novels to get the job done. She tells her story succinctly wi

Oubliette, the second book in the Cloud Prophet Trilogy had me from the very beginning. It had been a while since I had read the first book but this one picked right up from where Anathema left off.

Reychel is ported to the Southern Kingdom where she meets all new characters. She is no longer a slave but now someone who everyone is looking to as the prophet. Reychel has the gift of prophecy but is not able to control it. She is not sure who she can trust or who to believe. For all you Mark fans,

I have enjoyed the story, but in some ways the book has fallen short of the mark. I agree with much of what DelSheree said in the review of the first book of the series -- there were some glaring inconsistencies in dialogue (though I thought this aspect was better than in the first book) and in characters' statements (the one that stood out most to me being the "year" Reychel was gone, though it seemed it had only been a few months). I can't recall the title of this book ever coming to light . . ...more

After reading Anathema, book one of the Cloud Prophet Trilogy, I couldn't wait to pick up Oubliette. I was eager to find out what happened to Reychel. I definitely wasn't disappointed.

Reychel has managed to escape her life of slavery, but she's far from free. She finds herself in yet another unknown place, with people she's not sure she can trust. Everyone is expecting her to be their savior, but she's not even sure she can save herself from the side effects of her visions—if she can actually ma

So Oubliette took me a little longer to read than Anathema. It had nothing to do with the story, I think I was just trying to make it last longer.
Megg's second installment of the Cloud Profit trilogy starts off exactly where the last book ended. The action never ebbs and you become wrapped up in Reychel's world immediately.
There are so many twists and turns in Oubliette that it is hard to keep up. Poor Reychel has no idea who she can depend on and the list of people she can actually trust some

I received this book for signing up to the author's newsletter.

This book follows immediately on from Anathema and you are straight back in the action. Reychel is thrust through a portal which opens up in The Southern Kingdom. This takes her away from everything she knows, or thought she knew, and lands her firmly in the middle of haven't got a clue. They are expecting her however and once more she feels the pressure of being The Prophet when she really doesn't know how to use her gift.

I did not like this book as much as the first one, Anathema. The characters are what really got me. They were beyond annoying! Reychel was the worst one of all. When the series started she was a innocent, ignorant child, and then all of a sudden she thinks she is this strong woman who knows everything, which she does not. She makes horrible choices, bad mistakes, and is childish. I don't like how the author forced upon us what characters we should like and not like. Example: Ace. First we HATE h ...more

This book was over way too fast! Loved every moment of it, though :).

Reychel is doing her best, yet still feels like a slave - trying to please everyone else, without being able to actually decide anything on her own. She has been thrust in to an unknown - the palace, the people, all of it unfamiliar. She does an outstanding job of sticking to her guns. The book, as with the one before, is well written; you really feel connected to Reychel. Through all the turmoil, doubt, confusion, etc you feel

I really enjoyed this installment in the series. Again, it was short, like the first one, but the author really did a great job putting in a lot of twists and turns. She writes enough in that I really don't know what to expect going into the third book.

The only thing that annoyed me about the story was how the dual couple thing evolved - with Reychel and Mark, and Krissen and Ace. It felt kind of contrived to me, and kind of high schoolish. It really smacked of that 'oh everyone has a boyfriend

What I Loved
This is book 2 in the trilogy and I really enjoyed it more than the first. There was so much information that they get, lots of intrigue, back stabbing, betrayal, needless to say it was packed with a lot of good page turning story. I can't wait to read the final book.
Reychel: I'm so happy with the path her character is going and how her personality is really starting to develop into a strong young woman.
A little less on the romance in this one verses Anathema,
