What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
When a Monarch is Marked, they go from master to prisoner. Their fate? Determined by the one who Marked them.
Alisha Butterfly is my name, and on Friday the 13th, I was found guilty of the massacre of a bunch of criminals — people I have no memory of killing. Amnesia wasn’t a good enough excuse to get me into the mental ward and so I was tossed into the depths of the Psychic Prison for Supernaturals.
Now I’m a Marked puppet with bad luck on my side and a master waiting for me at my cell. But questions — and problems — arise when that one master turns out to be four and I learn I’m more than just a trapped butterfly.
To them, a Marked Monarch is a slave to their every command. But I’m more than that. I’m powerful and I will rise from the depths of this prison and exact my revenge on whomever sentenced me here.
I’ll cocoon myself within these grim walls and do what my masters tell me. Let them abuse, strengthen, and train me for what’s to come, for time will be my ally until I transform and regain what is rightfully mine.
I will reclaim my supernatural monarchy.
Thoughts on Psychic Prison
After reading The first part of Cassandra’s story (the human thrown into the prison) I was eager to read about the mysterious monarch she encounters there, Alisha Butterfly. This is this first part of her story, though it’s really part three of her every growing saga, we just jump into backwards are are gifted with a few flashbacks to fill in the blanks. And considering this Uber powered chic has amnesia, there are A LOT of blanks – and it’s a bit of a struggle to catch up.
So, I liked it…. but I’m not sure if I like HER. Instinctive superiority is a bit annoying, truth be told. She may have a right to be arrogant, but it made her harder to relate to for one such as myself, though I suppose that is part of her story.
Overall, it’s a mishmash that is part of a much larger picture, one that will require quite a few books, featuring many different characters, to really tell.
- Return of Cassandra.
- I actually like Kai.
- The bigger picture is almost, kinda, not really, becoming clear.
- Her attitude is off putting.
- The prison is hard to picture… seriously hard.
- Events flow awkwardly.
- I’m so confused on the mate issue, is Lyla or is she not?

My Final Verdict on Psychic Prison
This far reaching plot gets even more complicated as we explore more characters, and their dangerous pasts. The Psychic Prison, both a cage and a haven for those in power, is explored and exploited as we get a peak behind the curtain. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
