Release Date: February 5, 2011
I was looking for a really short read when I brought Anathema with me to the beach yesterday. I wasn't thinking much of it but I really enjoyed Anathema. With a fast paced story and constant turns I finished it in one sitting at the beach. (I even got sunburned from laying in the same spot while finishing this.)
The books I've been reading lately have been a bit long with way too much detail, but Megg wrote this with the perfect amount pages and the right amount of detail. From the first page to the very end I was left guessing on what would happen next.
I really felt for Reychel and how she was betrayed by her friends. I just wanted to go up to her an hug her, but she's stronger than that. She goes through every day not being able to see the outside world. When she's tossed into reality she dusts herself off and keeps walking. When Reychel finds she's more than the average slave she does everything she can to make things right.
Overall Rating: 4 out of 5
Be sure to catch the sequel, Oubliette which will be released on June 23, 2011.
