QUICK REVIEW: "Oubliette" (Cloud Prophet Trilogy, book 2) - by Megg Jensen


“OUBLIETTE”
(Cloud Prophet Trilogy, book 2)

OVERVIEW

Reychel thought she was finally free. She was wrong. Everyone saw her gift of prophecy as a blessing, but her gift is uncontrollable. No one alive can teach her to manipulate her unique gift and the answers she needs lie buried within a madman’s journals. She’s thrust in the midst of a brewing war and the only uniting factor for her people is their belief in the Prophet.

Will Reychel learn to control her gift or will she be forced to deliver a false prophecy that could lead her people into a violent war?

REVIEW

The second book in the Cloud Prophecy series, “Oubliette” was a good read. It picks up right where the first book left off, and the reader gets to meet a whole array of new and fascinating characters. A slow-moving, yet interesting storyline with unpredictable twists, keeps the reader riveted; and the open ending leaves as much as necessary to be continued in the third and final installment of the series.

My only complaints are that “Oubliette” didn’t have that same “oomph” as what the first book, “Anathema” had for me; and I couldn’t feel the chemistry or connection between the characters who are portrayed as being lovers.

On the whole, Megg Jensen’s unsophisticated writing style makes “Oubliette” an effortless and relaxing read. Recommended for readers aged twenty and under.
