Review: Forsworn by Emily Wibberley
Title: Forsworn (The Last Oracle #2)
Author: Emily Wibberley
Goodreads Summary: 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.
Rating: 5+ Stars
Review: ~I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review~
Wow. I loved Sacrificed, and I definitely loved Forsworn. At first, I was rather shocked by the Clio vs. Riece feud, but I got over it with them.
Emily Wibberley is a very skilled writer. She reveals so much more as Forsworn reaches it's ending, and I love all the revelations and secrets brought into light as well as the mystery that accompanies them.
I definitely admire Clio. She is stubborn, brave, and will do anything for the people's she loves. I can't wait for Book III, and I'm excited to see what comes with it.
