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.




The war began slowly. So slowly that Clio didn’t realize what was happening at the time. But then the seasons had changed, and the Untouched still remained outside Sheehan. And battle and death became routine, monotonous, daily. Defeat would have broken through the city walls long ago were it not for her.
           
  It should have been easy for the Untouched to take the city by surprise. They had all the strength. All that stood before Sheehan’s defeat was a crumbling wall and a young Oracle. But each morning, Clio had a Vision of where the Untouched would attack. She would tell Derik. Derik would send out his men, and they would have just enough to hold the siege back until the next day. It was the same every day. And today’s Vision would come soon, but Clio wanted to see them first.
             
The wind screamed as it came over the wall. She had to clutch her cloak tightly to her chest to keep it out of the gale’s greedy fingers. Ash already choked the ground, but each biting gust carried with it another swirling madness of dead flame and cinder. This was a good thing, Clio knew. It meant the Untouched had lost control of their fires once again. They’d come to this valley from jungles and caves and were unused to the punishing blasts that blew down from the mountains of Morek and swept over the dry brush ripe for kindling. And when just one starving, freezing man lit a fire in a desperate attempt to stave off the cold, their camps would erupt.
The fires did more to stem the tide of the Untouched’s siege than Sheehan’s own warriors. More than a year of defending the walled city had left Clio’s people quaking with hunger and fear and desolation. Even the remainder of Morek’s meager guard was beginning to look more and more like the drained and exhausted men of Sheehan. Each day Derik still believed the Emperor would send his full army and finally stamp out the barbarians that had suffocated the city for so long. But each day passed, and no one came, and Clio had long since abandoned that hope. 






Emily grew up in the South Bay where she spent her formative years battling zombies on her Xbox, watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and voraciously reading everything from The Hunger Games to Jane Austen, where her love for feisty young heroines was born.After graduating from Princeton University Magna Cum Laude in 2014, she began writing. 

Her debut novel, Sacrificed, was named a finalist in the Young Adult categoryof the 2015 International Book Awards, the Young Adult category of the 2015 Beverly Hills Book Awards, and in the Young Author category of the 2015 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. Since its release, Sacrificed has spent more than four months as a Kindle Top Ten Teen and Young Adult Bestseller.
