Heather | 13 comments This is what I am looking for: it's a YA scifi series. This is what I remember:

1) there is a family that live on the cold side of a planet. The grandmother is a prophet. I believe they cultivate a flower. One purpose is to see visions?
2) a boy from this family is abducted and the other family members killed (I think) based on a prophesy. The abducted boy is taken to the warm side of the planet and raised by what are made out to be heathens. A girl from that family has a power that makes others and her feel pain. Her brother has the ability to take people's memories away.
3) there are twin girls on the cold side, I think one of the prophesies is that one of them will be a planetary ruler.
SPOILER: I think they later find out that the boys from each family were switched at birth to protect someone from some prophecy.

Freya | 4 comments This sounds like Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth . I am almost certain and I know that the second book has been released.

Carve the Mark is the one. I keep hoping she'll come out with a third :(

[book:Carve the Mark|301172..."

Just seen earlier today that she is releasing about 2 books within the next year! I know that one is about the world ending if you like that type of stuff.
