Clio can see the future, but what she doesn’t know about her past could destroy her.
It’s been a year since Clio made her sacrifice to the Deities and embraced her destiny as the Oracle to save her people.
The only family she has left is a brother who wants her dead.
The prince, her oldest friend, is a king with his own agenda.
And the man who once loved her, now hates her.
All she can do is try to forget about Riece, the enemy commander whose heart she broke to save his life, as she serves the Deities. Her days are filled with Visions and bloodshed in a never-ending war against the Untouched. To add to her problems, she must pose as King Derik’s mistress to conceal her forbidden powers from the Emperor’s spies.
When Riece unexpectedly returns to Sheehan with a new and beautiful ally, Clio knows she must put him out of her mind once and for all, but first, they are thrust together into battle against a mysterious Untouched warrior with otherworldly power. To reclaim her city, she must team up with the man she hurt, the man she still loves but can never be with, and finally confront the questions about her origin—questions with answers that Clio may not be prepared to face.
My Review: So excited to be back with book two! I loved the first one, but this one was just WOW. Emily blew me away with this book!
Clio has always been able to see the future. But her past is another story. So her life is just a little hectic.... She spends her days with visions of war and blood going out of hand. Her only family wants her dead. The man she once loved, hates her. Oh and the king has his own plans. So yeah, things aren't exactly how she pictured it to be.
And just to make things even more fun, Clio gets to play pretend. Yup, she gets to be a fake mistress, just so she can stay safe and keep her powers a secret. Clio wasn't thrilled with that whole charade. It didn't help she was still trying to get Riece out of her mind and the visions she was getting were horrible.
But Clio can make it trough anything. She can team up with the one person she can't be with and figure out her origin. She beyond amazing and I just love Clio. I can't wait to see what goes down in the next book!
