Severed is the last of the Cloud Prophet trilogy, and my favorite! The mystery and intrigue are at a fever pitch in this novel, keeping me completely absorbed. Reychel is a fabulous character, a former slave thrust into a life she never imagined herself a part of. Now the fate of the world rests primarily on her shoulders and she stands to lose everything she has ever dreamed of to save her people. She still struggles to use her gifts to help her people, even while fearing the loss of her sanity, facing impossible choices. This book, and the entire series, is one of those that pulls you in and won't let you go. It is a story that stays with you even when it is finished because you have become so involved with the characters and their stories. The dystopian world the author has created may be completely different from that of our own, but the characters are so believable that you are fully able to fall into it as if it were your own world. This story had a little bit of everything in it: friendship, love, betrayal, mystery, loyalty, intrigue, fear, and honor. The characters are so well created that, at the end of the series, you feel as if you have been with them as they grew and changed within the story. While the series is over, there will soon be a short novella, The Initiate, that bridges this trilogy with the Swarm trilogy. The first book of that series, Sleepers, is already available and the next one, Afterlife, will be out some time in 2012.

Although I loved the end of the series, I wanted SO much more, too. So sad to read the end of Reychel, Mark, Johna, Krissin, and Ace.

I read the first book in this trilogy the last month of 2010, and the follow-up much later in 2011. It took me some time to get around to reading this last instalment in the Cloud Prophet Trilogy as I felt slightly disappointed with the second book and I considered not reading the last book in the series. However, I’m really glad I read the last book, as it tied up all the loose ends and had a pretty good ending. But, as much as I enjoyed Severed, it had the potential to be so much better. Not much was done in the way of world building, which is one of the things I enjoyed so much in Anathema. More focus was placed on Reychel and Mark and their love for each other, but I honestly couldn’t tell what she saw in Mark. He came across as someone who hot-footed around Reychel all the time and his only role in the story was as Reychel’s love interest – not much of a stand-alone character. I enjoyed the relationship between Krissen and Ace much more. Krissen remained the fun character from the previous two books, and Ace is a well-rounded, strong character who isn’t afraid to speak his mind. Pity he had such a small role in this book. These two characters are really what made Severed such an enjoyable read. Reychel was again faced with impossible choices, and her strength of character was tested as the weight of her peoples’ fate rested squarely on her decisions.  The plot moved at a faster pace than it did in Oubliette and is filled with more mystery and revelations than in its predecessor. Anathema still remains my favorite of the three books in this trilogy and I felt the author never quite managed to recapture the magic of the first book, but at least Severed wasn’t the disappointment I was expecting it to be after having read Oubliette. I give it four stars as it exceeded my expectations and the finale was better than I hoped it would be.
