Blurb:

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.

Shani’s Review:

Sacrificed was epic ! The main character is a girl who doesn’t believe in her mothers work. She feels that its all a trick but when she turns out to have the same obligation as her mother, she sees its all real and has to use her gift of sight to help people. There’s some romance…two guys involved that she likes . This is only the first book but the second one is definitely on my TBR (to be read) list. I enjoyed it. Unfortunately there isn’t much that I can say without spoiling the story but I can say that it’s definitely worth the read, especially if you hold an interest in those who see the future.

Five Things about Me:

  1. I once stood in line to meet Joss Whedon at a comic book signing when I was in middle school and got him to autograph a Buffy the Vampire Slayer poster for me.

  2. I was the flute section leader in my high school’s marching band.

  3. Besides YA, some of my favorite reading material comes from Jane Austen and the Preacher comic book series. I also like to spend my free time playing video games like The Last of Us.

  4. I have two rescue German Shepherds. One is really sweet and the other thinks he’s a NAVY SEAL and that every cat, skateboarder and motorcyclist is a terrorist.

  5. L + R = J.
