Can Reychel learn to believe in herself?"

You know what I am really enjoying now and days??? Characters that are out of the loop. Characters who think themselves as nothing but find out they are something more. For some reason, this story line is really capturing me. And this book hooked me. What an amazing, fresh, read. I can't begin to tell you how much I loved this book. It captured me cause of two things. Characters and plot.

The plot. One thing for sure is that I always love a good plot. Especially when a character is said to be nothing. Known as nothing. It takes my breath away when the character is brought up harshly and lied to. It makes the plot much more enduring, more fast paced. If anything, I am hooked even more just to see the character explode into something better.

Characters in this book were also amazing. I like it when not only a character changes before your eyes, but grows up too. I love it when a character see their worth and makes that change right before you. Other characters in the book, like the minor ones, weren't so minor. I love that! Seeing a minor character play a bigger role than I ever expected swept me off my feet.

Is this book good? Heck Yeah! Should you read it? Heck Yeah! And if you don't, I will find you and beat you down! Seriously, this book is a great plot filled, with amazing characters that takes you off your feet from the very first page. All elements in this book keep you entertain as well as keep you in the story. You feel the characters, become the characters, and you are in the story. Anathema is a curse that will cause you to read this story over and over again. Simply amazing and well written!

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. I loved this one too and have a review on my page. If you haven't read the sequel to Anathema, you really need to. I can't wait until the next one comes out. Sleepers, the first book in her next trilogy is good too. Megg's worlds and characters are amazing!

  2. @creativedeeds, I'm in love withn her writing! She created such a wonderful world. I do need to read the second book!

  3. What a great combo of fantastic characters and a gripping plot! I hadn't heard of this book before, Savy so thanks for the review. :)

  4. Love when the plot and characters are both equally well done, and this sounds like such an interesting premise:) I'm with Missie in not having heard much about this one, so I'm glad you posted your thoughts!

  5. I'd never heard of this one either. Will put it on my to-watch-for list. :)

  6. Oh yes! These characters sound brilly! I have been eyeing this one and I think I should just get it. Thanks for the review!

  7. DEFINITELY adding this one to my TBR pile. Sounds like one helluva read with a really interesting plotline for the MC. And yup, I'm also a big fan of the more-than-they-seem protag who's been lied to for their whole life. Thanks for the rec!
