Anathema (Cloud Prophet Trilogy #1) by Megg Jensen

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?

My Review 
Excellent book! Very unique story about a slave girl who must figure out her destiny & learn who to trust. I read somewhere that Megg Jensen described this as a "Medieval Dystopian" which is a perfect description of the setting! The other characters are very interesting as well, even if some of them are horrid! Mark is amazing - who wouldn't fall for a sexy, dangerous soldier like him! I worried about Reychel throughout the whole book, even when I wasn't reading it! The ending probably would have irritated me & cost a star in the review, but since I had Oubliette waiting as soon as I finished I didn't have time to be concerned!
