Young Adult, Fantasy

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?

4 out of 5 (very good)

There is little hope at the beginning of this book. Reychel is a slave and has to shave her head every morning. Not only that but she is not allowed near any windows unless her master says so, which is usually when he calls her into a meeting. She is nearing her 15th birthday and is not looking forward to the 'honour' of having his brand burnt into her scalp. This story fairly skips along and you are introduced to a variety of characters and situations. Reychel has to learn that a darker side exists in most people. She is accused of being naive but her situation in life hasn't exactly been there to give her experience. Who should she trust and who should she not? This is something that Reychel has to find out but quickly as other people are depending upon her. I really enjoyed this story and am continuing on my Cloud Prophet journey as I am now reading Oubliette, book 2. Definitely recommended for Fantasy readers.
