Review: Sacrificed: The Last Oracle by Emily Wibberley
Title: Sacrificed: The Last Oracle (The Last Oracle #1)
Author: Emily Wibberley
Goodreads Summary: Knowing the future can save her city – but not her heart.
Born to serve the merciless Oracle, Clio wants nothing more than to break free. But when her entire family is murdered by Mannix, the king's adviser, Clio inherits the Oracle’s power, a power she never wanted and doesn't understand.
Hunted by Mannix, Clio is forced to flee her home in Sheehan and seek refuge in a foreign city where oracles are 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 undeniable attraction between them, Clio knows that if he finds out who she really is, he won't hesitate to execute her.
Clio tries to hide her budding powers, but the Visions she keeps having of Mannix and his barbarian army slaughtering her people torture her conscience. She alone has the strength and foresight to stop him, but only if she can embrace her destiny and sacrifice everything.
Rating: 5 Stars
Review: ~Thank you to the author for providing a free copy in exchange for an honest review~
Sacrificed was an epic read, and I enjoyed every moment.
Clio and Riece were amazing characters. I loved their relationship, although I did feel that it was rather strange that it just started all of a sudden, and I didn't really feel a build up besides the synopsis. Besides that, I loved Sacrificed.
Sacrificed really developed, and during the book I got to see a lot of the characters, the plot, the storyline, and how it all fit together. I was quite surprised at the length of Sacrificed, and how much Emily Wibberley managed to cram into what I thought was quite a short book.
Overall, I definitely rate Sacrificed, and I recommend you reading it. I can't wait to continue the series and read Forsworn. I have high expectations, but I'm sure Emily Wibberley will fulfil them.
Recommended for: Fans of a great adventure and romance.
