BLURB from Goodreads
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.



Riece’s mouth was hot against her neck. He was whispering words to her, but Clio couldn’t hear anything beyond the roaring in her veins. Something wasn’t right, Clio knew that. Her chest blazed as Riece’s hands traveled over her breasts to cup her face.
              “I’m sorry, Riece, I never meant—” Her voice was thin, fragile like so many of her promises.
              He cut her off with a kiss that stoked the fire in her chest until she felt it choking and clawing at the back of her throat.
              “I don’t care about that. This—you—that is all I want,” he whispered.
              Beckoned by his words, burning tears slid down her cheeks. She could taste the salt of her own scalding attrition.
              The pain was made blissfully worse with every touch of his calloused hands, but Clio suffered it happily. His lips could only temper the agony for so long before the two of them fell into sublime ruin.
              And as the waves of betrayal, pain, rapture and love crashed over them, Clio woke.
             Just a dream.

BLURB from Goodreads
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
