Sacrificed (The Last Oracle Book 1) by Emily Wibberley is the story of Clio, who used to believe that her mother's powers as a mystical oracle were nothing but make-believe. Until she unexpectedly becomes the oracle herself, and learns that the things she believed to be wrong are actually right. Unfortunately, she also has to deal with the loss of people important to her, and falling in love with somebody who would like to see every single oracle dead. How will he react when he finds out that his new friend is an oracle? And how will Clio get out of the situation that brought her into a city that would also like to see every oracle killed in a rather violent manner?
I am usually a bit cautious when starting a series these days as many are just quite bad. Sacrificed (The Last Oracle Book 1) by Emily Wibberley, however, turned out to be a pleasant surprise. It was not one of those short first books of a series that just wants to make you buy the next one. The book is a whole story in itself, but also makes you want to read more, and learn more about the world you have been introduced to. The characters quickly grow close to your heart (or far apart from it), and it's not possible to say "just one more chapter." This is a very well written fantasy novel in an interesting world that promises quite a few conflicts in the books to come (at least I can imagine a few of the conflicts already). It's definitely a series you should have a look at if you like strong female lead characters in a fantasy setting.
