Before Anathema, before Sleepers, there was The Initiate.
Over 1,000 years ago, the gods left Eloh's people and took their magic with them. To win back their favor, her people sacrifice 10 female initiates every 10 years. No has ever survived. There has never been a Chosen One.
Forced into becoming an initiate, Eloh will try to find a way to beat the odds, stay with her boyfriend, and survive the fires that threaten to consume her. But will her lack of faith in the gods and her disbelief in their magic doom her to a painful death?
The Initiate bridges the best-selling Cloud Prophet Trilogy (Anathema, Oubliette, and Severed) and The Swarm Trilogy (Sleepers, Afterlife, and The Sundering).
I absolutely loved this book! This was the first book I have read/listened to from Megg Jensen and I will definitely be reading more. The detail to the main character's emotions was amazing. Some scenes really broke my heart.
The narration was so perfect. I loved how Kai Kennicott was able to change voices so much for each character. The added sound affects made it that much more real. My favorite was the Goddess, so amazing! I highly recommend this audio book.
