Amazing! Highly recommended

First off, I just have to say that I love Megg Jensen. Her writing is fantastic. Anathema was the first I'd read from her, and I was definitely impressed.

First off, I just have to say that I love Megg Jensen. Her writing is fantastic. Anathema was the first I'd read from her, and I was definitely impressed.

We first meet Reychel on the morning of her fifteenth birthday. She is a slave to the lord of her land, Kandek, and fifteen is the "magic number"--the day when she will receive his brand, marking her as his slave for the rest of her life. He's kept her indoors her whole life. Her only glimpse of the outside world is when he calls her to him and asks her to stand at an open window and tell him stories.

Anathema is full of twists that will leave you guessing. Reychel learns that no one is what they seem. There were lots of surprises, and the ending left me anxious for the sequel, Oubliette. Anathema was definitely one of the best Young Adult Fantasies I've read in a long time and I highly recommend it!

Nothing is developed in this book. Every event is followed far too closely with another event. It is full of overly done intrigue. The main character has very close and emotional relationships with almost everyone she meets, but there is no background information as to why. She meets someone, and suddenly, within what appears to be hours, she is tearful at their farewell and saying how much she will miss her close friend.

This would have been an excellent book if it had been slowed down and detailed better.

    Ehhhhh

    This book felt very rushed and often confusing, toward the end. There are frequent grammatical errors. This book has a strange love triangle and everything feels too nonchalant... as if the writer just randomly decided to add in people or tidbits of information. The ending is just bizarre as well. Don't waste your time unless you can't afford another book and have to choose a free one.

    Very poor writing, the story plot could have been so much better

    Very poor writing, the story plot could have been so much better! A lot of details missing from the story. Do not plan to buy any of her books!
