I joined the Cloister to find the truth. But I’ve discovered so much more, and the darkness here is seducing me, pulling me down until all I can think of is him. Adam Monroe, the Prophet’s son, a dark prince to an empire that grows by the day. He is tasked with keeping me safe from the wolves of the outside world. But the longer I stay at the Cloister, the more I realize the wolves are already inside and under the Prophet’s control. If Adam discovers the real reason I’m here, he’ll bay for my blood with the rest of them. Until then, I will be Delilah, an obedient servant of the Prophet during the day and Adam’s Maiden at night.
I have been a fan of Celia’s since I read the Aquisition Series, and man was that a dark and screwed up story. I had been waiting to see if she would come out with something else like that, well guess what, here it is!
The Cloister is a messed up story about religion, sex, drugs, and murder. This is one mindf*c# story and we are only in the first book! We start with the chosen 12 girls being taken into the fold of the Heavenly Ministries where they will get their protectors. The protectors make sure these girls are trained and commanded so they will please the Prophet.
Delilah is one of these girls. She is chosen by the Prophet’s son Adam, the oldest son, who has darkness in him. But when you start reading you can tell he doesn’t believe a word his father says. He is there because he has to be. He is nothing like the rest but has no other option.
When Adam and Delilah get together there is something about them that stands out. But Adam has to be careful because he knows that his father the Prophet will do anything to destroy what he finds Adam wants. And Adam knows there is something different about Delilah and he will do anything to find out what it is.
There is a lot of sexual training that goes on in this story, so if you are squeamish this is probably not the story for you. There are some triggers, but not many for me, just the training that got to me in some spots. There is forced drug use, also. But the story is wonderfully told and the characters are strong. If you are looking for a full-length novel that will keep you on your toes, this is the story for you. But it does end on a cliff-hanger and there are two more books to go.
I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.
