Oubliette (Cloud Prophet Trilogy #2) by Megg Jensen
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?
Although this is the second book in a series, the author does fill the reader in on some of the details that happened in the first book. I am pretty sure that if you would choose to read them out of order you will still fully enjoy this part of the story. Although so far book 1 is my favorite, so I highly recommend reading it.
Reychel has been taken into the palace as an honored guest. They have been awaiting a prophecy and believe that she is the one that will deliver it. Although Reychel is still learning how to use and guide her powers to call upon at her will, she is still greatly admired. All of them hope that she is the answer to their prayers and will indeed prophesier what they have all been waiting for.
Once a slave herself, Reychel's new status as pretending to be a noblewoman at the castle is a whole new world for her. She is not only feeling the stress of having a very short time to deliver the prophecy the people have heard from legend that she will deliver. But she is also on he own quest to discover what her visions mean and piece them together for the bigger picture.
My favorite part of these stories are the portals she can travel through. There is magic and the fact that Reychel used to be a slave but has risen to position of prophet is different and fun to read. The books are pretty short and I read them in about a day. I find them very entertaining and different and a lot of fun.
I noticed there was a cover change on the newest version, but I kind of liked the other one as well, so I will post a link to the newest one below!
