    This second novel in the Cloud Prophet Trilogy is much more refi

    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.” Believed to be the Cloud Prophet, though not entirely sure herself, Reychel must figure out the truth about the prophecy before she claims her heritage. The main problem is, nothing makes sense, and her abilities seem to be waning, thus, she may be forced to lie to the nation in order to set things in motion, and save those she holds dear, but Reychel struggles with the thought that her lies could end in bloodshed.

    What I really enjoyed about this novel is the mystery surrounding the original Cloud Prophet. Jensen sheds light on his life and his truths as the story progresses, and as it turns out, nothing is as it seems. I was surprised on many an occasion as I read, and I really enjoyed learning the truth alongside Reychel, even though that truth isn’t necessarily a good one. And, of course, the mystery behind the betrayals within the castle also spurred me on as I read! Add in the magical aspects, such as invisible threads leading to portals (which I thought was ingenious), and this story really turns out to be a great read! This world Jensen has created holds many a mystery, and the magical realm really helped pull me into the story and connect to the characters, who are now very well fleshed out and much more likable.

    I really enjoyed seeing Reychel grow into herself in this novel, especially with all the threats that crop up around her. In the first novel, she seems a bit more sporadic and easily led astray, whereas in this novel she has a much better head on her shoulders, taking matters into her own hands and selflessly attempting to save the world. She’s a great young heroine, and I’m excited to see where the rest of the story leads in the final novel of the trilogy. So, if you’ve read the first novel and weren’t sure whether to pick up the next installment for whatever reason, I believe you should definitely give it a go. The series definitely gets better!

    A great sequel

    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, he is in this one throughout the book. There is also another hot guy, Ace but he gets involved with a new character to this trilogy.

    I really enjoyed reading this, it was just as good if not better than the first one. Reychel is growing as a character and getting closer with Mark. There is also more world building. I loved learning about how the Southern Kingdom lives. There are some twists and turns and some quite shocking moments. This is one that will keep you guessing, you will not want to put it down. I'm excited to see what is going to happen in the last book. If you haven't read started reading this trilogy I recommend you start. It's a mix of dystopian and fantasy. This e-book was provided to me by the author for review. This did not affect my review in any way.

    A fantastically wonderful 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. This story picks up where Anathema left off and Reychel must search for answers in order to use her gift and help save her people. This book, and the series, has everything you could want in an epic fantasy tale. The intrigue and mystery keep you guessing throughout the story, with lots of twists and turns, many of which I had no inkling of until I turned the page and read. There were many times that you just weren't sure who was on what side and that definately added to the suspense of the story.

    One of the things I love most about this series is the development of the characters. The supporting characters are just as well developed as the main characters and I feel that lends to a much fuller book. Whether you liked them or not, as a reader you are completely involved with them. I think that is a big part of what pulls me into the author's books. It is definately a character-driven story for me, but in no way were the other parts of the story diminished. The world the author created is easily visualized, which only adds to the fullness of the story. I like that she is able to do that without overloading the reader with descriptive passages, which can take away from the pace of a good story.

    All in all, this is a MUST READ!! It is fantastically engaging book that I am positive you, my faithful readers, will absolutely adore as I do!

    Great

    I'm giving this five stars since i can't wait to read the next book. I must say though it took me a few minutes longer to connect with the characters but when i finally did it was well worth the wait. Great reading for all ages!

    Good continuation of a great series. Krissin has become my favor

    Good continuation of a great series. Krissin has become my favorite character. I love her spunky attitude. Krissin and Ace stole the book for me. Can't wait for the last book!
