SACRIFICED (The Last Oracle, Book I)
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.

“A subtle but deep moral theme tracks Clio’s growth through the novel, ensuring this YA fantasy, which is the first book in The Last Oracle series, will earn a following eager for the next book in the series.”
★★★★★ “This book can easily be a top favorite for many fantasy/young adult readers! Fast paced read, it took me a day to finish, keeping the interest as a reader. Packed with battles, action, slavery, sacrifices, LOVE, and coming to age!”
★★★★1/2 “…the world built here is really quite something. It’s intricate and planned, and with all the pyramids and different gods speaking through people, and emperors, I just kept picturing ancient Egypt in my mind…”
★★★★★ “The story is fast paced but knows when to offer up some light and shade, and is filled with unexpected twists and turns that keep you guessing the whole way through.”
★★★★★ “What I loved about ‘Sacrificed’ – Clio! Don’t let her fool you in the beginning. She becomes a spunk of fire through out the book and does not disappoint being a strong female lead with a clever mind.”
★★★★★ “I’m the type of person, who, after finishing a great book, I’m looking for the next great thing to read. After finishing The Hunger Games trilogy, I tried filling the YA void with the Divergent trilogy, but was left far from satisfied. With Sacrificed, I’ve found a trilogy I can dig my teeth into with relish.”
