Forget prophecy. Make your own destiny.
Sheltered from the outside world with no hope for escape, slave girl Reychel dreads her fifteenth birthday - when her master’s symbol is burned on the back of her bald scalp. Her best friend disappears the night before, leaving her to face the branding ceremony alone. She soon discovers nothing is as it seems when people desperate for freedom beg for Reychel's help.
Can Reychel learn to believe in herself?
Ok I got this book when it was free on amazon.com right now its .99 and its totally worth it! So I am doing this review as my Why Buy The Cow reading challenge.
First let me say WOWOWOWOW.....Do you see the cover on this. How could you not want to read it. Just looking at it makes me want to know what the story is.
You come in on this girl blad waking up to find her friend next to her is missing. Reychel a slave is tormented all day not knoing where her best friend has gone.Ivy was taken or so Reychel thought all that was left behind was a gold coin. Reychel carries that coin around with her all day long. Reychel goes about her normal routine of working in a room with no windows. (This girl is not allowed to look out windows are you kidding me).Her master Kandek only allows Reychel to look out the windows in his room when she is asked to tell him stories then he lets the sun and the clouds in for her.
The Day that Ivy is missing is also the day of Reychels Branding yes I said Branding (OWE). She is expecting to go threw the branding alone only will she.
The escape is the most amazing journey and I didnt think anything else would top it. I was so excited the second Mark stepped in the room the question was he good was he bad. How the plot twists and turns is well worth the read. I wont give it all away lets just say you wont see it coming.
Just a few pieces of the book that I liked I wanted to share..
out of everything I had seen and experienced, Mark was the key. Without him I wouldn't have doubted Ivy. Without him I may never have discovered my gift. With out him I wouldn't have know what it was like to have the freedom to fall in love.
It's Simple to me. No matter where you go, Reychel, I will find you and I will protect you. You discovered your purpose as the Prophet of the clouds, He paused I discovered my purpose in protecting you.
Mark Grabbed my shoulders and pulled me closer, i lifted my arms and put them around his neck, My bound hands didn't hamper my fingers from twisting into the hair at the nape of his neck
I mean seriously how could you not want your own personal protector who will love you and keep you safe right... You have to read this book amazing from start to finish! I can only imagine what the second book is going to be like. I was trying to decide who I would want for a book boyfriend Mark or Grey and i till have not figured it out just yet. Keep your eyes pealed for that.
