The Initiate - Megg Jenson

The Initiate - Megg Jenson

About the book:
Over a thousand years ago, the gods left Eloh's people and took their magic with them. To win back their favor, her people sacrifice ten female initiates every ten 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? 


My Review:
I was hooked right from the first paragraph with this novella, Megg manages to weave a world of magic, with characters that capture your interest and drag you into their world. Eloh is a well rounded, yet has some much depth of feeling and compassion that you do truly grow to love. This novella although it can be read on it's own with nothing lost within the story-line, it is also uses as a bridge between both of Megg's other series. So if you are finding Megg's book for the first time, or picking this up to read knowing nothing of her other stories, i believe that you will love it just as much as i did. I would recommend you to head out and grab yourself a copy of this book and give it a read, especially if you love gods/goddesses and myth and magic. I really don't think you will be disappointed.
