So many fools. Nothing but fools.
That worm of a detective, my mother, Paul. Fools—all of them. But Aspen, oh Aspen…she was the biggest fool of all.
Aspen Black, a seemingly ordinary woman of the compound, transformed into the utter bane of my existence in just a matter of months. She had the gall to question me, to seek the counsel of an outsider, and to disobey my word.
To add to her list of transgressions, Aspen recruited my own brother in the crusade against me. For this, they must both be punished. And their daughter, Ruthie, is the key to their retribution.
Aspen and Paul will pay for their crimes against the one true prophet. If it’s the very last thing I do.
I was very much anticipating this conclusion to the series. There were so many directions this story could have gone and I loved being on the edge my seat trying to figure out where Melissa Brown was going to take it. Prophet Takes All and this entire series is a roller coaster of emotions. I really enjoyed seeing the growth and change in the key characters as they navigated the rocky path of trying to balance their evolving love for one another with their beliefs and the cruel facts in front of them.
Prophet Takes All and the Sister Wives series is not a steamy sexy read. It is a story of the heart and Melissa Brown does a fantastic job of keeping the reader engaged on every page without using sex. And these days not many books do that or can do that.
Well done Melissa Brown. This story tugged on my heart, questioned my beliefs and made me remember that true love can give you strength in adversity. Not to mention, change is good even when we don’t think so.
