I can’t save myself from the Cloister, and maybe I never could. The Prophet grows more dangerous by the day. His delusions are steeped in blood, and if I’m not careful, that blood will be my own. Despite the growing risk, I still continue the search for the truth, no matter if the thorny path eventually twists back to Adam, guilt in his dark eyes. I’ve seen glimpses of his ...more

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! The Prophet, book 2 of 3. While Adam & Delilah’s loyalties are questioned by the Prophet they discover they have more in common than lust!

“I don’t bother asking God to forgive me. Nothing will ever wipe away this stain.”

Books in The Cloister Trilogy should be read in order:
Book 1: The Maiden
Book 2: The Prophet
Book 3: The Church

In The Maiden, book 1 Delilah joined the Heavenly Ministries, a religious cult serving a sinister, ruthless and sexually depraved leader,

“You will die here for your sins and be cast into the darkest pit of hell.”

‘THE PROPHET' is the second book in Celia Aaron’s ‘The Cloister Trilogy' series and it picks up where the first book left off. Yet again it’s spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ This is the continuation of ‘Delilah’s & ‘Adam’s’ journey.

That was intense!

So, this is the middle book of this “blasphemous” but sexy trilogy. I have to warn you that -even if you are into dark romance and you don't mind getting out of your comfort zone- if you are sensitive with religious matters (especially Christianity) better avoid this book

The Prophet is the second book in The Cloister series. After a nail-biting cliffhanger in The Maiden, Delilah and Adam are back and as the saying goes nothing is always quite as it seems.

Delilah is officially trapped in The Cloister. Although she has found comfort in the arms of Adam, her protector, she has lost all semblance of direction. The Prophet's power continues to intensify and with every passing second, Delilah is

Holy hell!!! What an ending that was! Yes, it’s a cliffy; but thank goodness the conclusion of this trilogy is already out! I need to start it immediately!

This instalment was more intense and some secrets were revealed, while more cropped up! I can’t wait until I find out everything! This has been a gruesome and horrific journey; but I’m hopeful that good will conquer evil....fingers crossed and I’m thinking I should pray!!!

I had a few questions going into The Prophet, such as:
1. Did any of the girls successfully escape The Cloister?
2. What would be the consequence of Delilah's escape attempt?
3. Would Adam show Delilah that he could be trusted?
4. Would these two characters finally realize that they were on the same side?
5. Would Delilah confide in Adam?
6. Will Grace die? LOL

The Prophet gave me so many of the answers that I was looking for, but it just gave me new questions going into The Church. That prophet was tr

POV: First Person - Dual

When Delilah first joined The Cloister, she never thought she would be pulled in as deep. But it was too late to turn back now and she had to endure until she gets the answer that brought her there in the first place.

Adam Monroe had been concocting a plan of actions. But as he got closer to his goals, things were shifting and he had to decide if it's worth losing everything he ever lived for.

This series is so messed up but I can’t stop reading it! I need book 3 now!

I loved Adam in this book. He’s a tortured soul and has done some horrible things, but he’s a good man. His father, the prophet, is to blame for every bad and evil thing that’s happened to him. The Prophet is such a sick bastard. He was more evil in this book and I just want him to get what he deserves.

Delilah has gone through and seen so so much during her stay in the Cloister, I am amazed she hasn’t gone crazy yet. Th

The Prophet opens with an uninterrupted timeline and resumes at a crucial point for Adam and Delilah. Knowing the penalty for her actions, the risk was high and Delilah pays for her transgression.

“She will be punished and cleansed until a serpent no longer dwells in her heart.”

As Adam is punished in a way that further fuels his need vengeance, the dynamic begins to shift and other unexpected contingencies arise that complicates the plan. Pushing forward is the only option leaving Adam to que

So so good. Adam and Delilah slay me. And NOAH... Noah... what will you do Noah? Who can we trust? Can we trust anyone? Agh, what’s going to happen?
That ending!
... I’d also like to say that this series so far has given me anxiety nightmares about being trapped in a cult. So thanks.

Also. Is the next book here yet?

You know I like a book when I read it in one sitting, in under 5 hours, and ignore everything else in life, so what does it tell you that I read this one in just 2 hours? Pretty much obsessed with the crazy. The Prophet immediately follows after The Maiden and is book two in The Cloister series. These are not standalones and they should be read in order, so if you haven't read The Maiden yet you need to mosey on over to Amazon, linked here, and get to reading.

O. M. G!!! This is the Best Dark Romantic Suspense Series I have read in So Damn Long! Yes I think it should be a new Genre all its own. It has balls to the wall action. This Hell-on-Wheels Rollercoaster does not slow down a damn bit. We are not complaining. Not. At. All.

I didn't think it was possible to top The Maiden. This did. I was worried that I might have my expectations too high and be let down by parts of this book. I wasn't. Yes it ends in a cliffhang

Delilah somehow became disoriented after what she's gone through in the hands of the Prophet and Spinners. But after a few days, she realized what she must do and she's now more focus on getting to know the truth.

No matter how dark and wicked Adam's mind is and I may not like every move he makes but I applauded his determination to be Delilah protector in every sense of the word. Also, in this book, we were able to take a peek at Adam's past and now I know why he acts like that towards one part

4 'what a nasty cliffy' stars

I said in my review for the previous book that I didn't find it as dark as I expected. Well, this book certainly ventured deeper into the darkness. Because, Jesus God, some really fucked up shit were going on in this one. And in the middle of the story, I got struck with a thought that things will probably not starting to get better before book 3. I was right, of course, and after this ending, I'm not sure how much more I can handle. I have read my share of gruesome

The Prophet was a wild ride filled with turns and twists. I didn't think it could have sicker or more depraved characters but it did, it so did. I'm so ready for the conclusion of this trilogy especially with the way this installment ended.

The second installment of this series picks up just a bit after the first book ended. Delilah's found herself on the receiving end of some of Heavenly Ministries' severe punishment. We don't get to see too much of that, we mostly skip right to the aftermath. I definitely would have liked to experience some of that, I think it would've helped in understanding some of the ongoing issues Delilah has from this experience.

This is book two in The Cloister series. Make sure you read book one The Maiden before you read this book. As soon as this hit my kindle I was jumping right in. I needed to read more.

In The Maiden we read that Delilah joined a religious cult to find answers. There she meets Adam who is the son of the Prophet. The Prophet continues where The Maiden finishes.

It’s a brilliantly dark read with trigger warnings. There were many times I was asking myself what just happened, what have I just read. Th

'The Prophet' is the fantastic follow-up to 'The Maiden' and continues to make the case for this series becoming one of my favorites as of late. It begins with Delilah at The Rectory as she faces the punishment of her actions at the end of the first book. Her punishment is the worst kind - not only is she being

5 "Gimme the Next Book Now" Stars

When I finished The Maiden, I had ALL. THE. QUESTIONS. My anticipation for this book was so high; I was like a toddler expecting candy. I needed it NOW.

From the first page, it was intense. The author doesn't hold anything back; the answers you are looking for are here and will have your jaw-dropping in shock. Heavenly Ministries' depravity is on full display, and with it Adam and Delilah's feelings for each other. Noah and Grace's moments in the book are revelato

I was so mad at the end of The Maiden that I could chew nails and spit fire! And now???!!!! I'm ready to get violent!

If you haven’t read The Maiden yet, in the words of Meatloaf - stop right now! Go read it now (Meatloaf did not say that, but he should have). It has vestal virgins in white dresses and lunatics with drugged fruit. It is a total trip. So different to anything I have read before.

The Prophet rules over Heavenly, but it is not heavenly it is hell and I don’t want to go there, even if there is wine. You might think this means the series is dystopian. It isn’t. It’s true life with bonkers people who
Wow~ it's pretty intense. Celia does a great job of continuing right where she left off. I found very little repeat in this book if any. My God the prophet is just evil. Can he like die today. You experience so many emotions in this one. Poor Delliah, poor Adam and poor dumb lost Noah. You are rooting for everyone to just find redemption and peace. But it is never easy, not with Celia as the author.

Another great installment in the trilogy. I highly recommend this book.

OMG THAT ENDING!! Celia Aaron did it again folks!! The Prophet was OUTSTANDING! Sexy, suspenseful, decadent and dirty. All things (and more) we can associate with a Celia Aaron book. I LOVED getting to see the progression of Adam's relationship with Delilah. This story was so damn addicting and I could not get enough. But that ending?! GOOD LORD. I was not ready!!! Bring on The Church!!!

Without giving anything away, The Prophet begins where The Maiden ended and in it we see Delilah continue her

Sissy's Romance Book Review
The Prophet by Celia Aaron is book Two in The Cloister Trilogy. This book continues the story of Adam and Delilah, so you do need to read the previous book "The Maiden" first.
This book starts right where the other one left off. Delilah has been caught from trying to escape and now left to be punished. Although Adam has to go through with the punishment he is working to be with Delilah. Adam hates his father and what he is doing especially to Delilah.
This book and series is one that you cannot
