Fifteen-year-old Clio should have never been the Oracle of Sheehan. That power is passed from mother to eldest daughter, and Clio is the youngest of four sisters. But when her entire family is murdered by Mannix, the king's adviser, Clio is left all alone and heir to a power she never wanted and doesn't understand.
Hunted by Mannix, Clio seeks refuge in a foreign city where oracles are absolutely forbidden. If she's found out, she will be sacrificed atop its great pyramid.
Clio has no choice but to win the trust of Riece, an enemy warrior. Despite the growing feelings between them, Clio knows that if he finds out who she really is, he won't hesitate to kill her.
Clio tries to hide her budding powers, but the visions she has of Mannix bringing a barbarian army into Sheehan torture her conscience. She alone has the strength and foresight to stop him, but only if she can embrace her destiny and sacrifice everything.
My Review: Clio has dealt with her family being murdered. And now she has been given a power she didn't ask for and has no idea what to do about it.
She was gifted the power of the Oracle. She needs to get a handle on it, but is kind of being hunted right now. So while trying to figure things out, she heads to another city. There she is safe, unless someone figures out she has the oracle gift. Then she will kinda be killed. No big deal or anything. Though its a safe bet that Clio needs to get things figured out and quickly.
I love the details in the book. Perfectly done, and the pace was smooth and picked right up at the perfect moment! I really loved this story! I love finding new books with different ideas/worlds. Emily did an amazing job in creating an awesome new world for me to read about. I so can't wait to get my hands on the next one!!!!
