Marie She is 16. Fairly YA. Much the same formula as Divergent and the other series that prevail now. If you like those, you would !like this.

So excited to read this book! Sacrificed, the first book in the trilogy, has been one of my few five star reads this year, and I recommend it to all Fantasy lovers.

I was fortunate enough to read an ARC of Forsworn! From the characters to the settings to the deadly battles, everything readers loved about Sacrificed comes back in full force during this second book in The Last Oracle trilogy. Overall 5/5 stars; this series is a MUST-READ!!!

6. Jaw-dropping. Stars.
The first book in this series ended with a MASSIVE cliffhanger where I gave up my heart. I should've never gotten it back because this book destroyed me even more.
This started a year after the first one ended and we were introduced to new characters either threatening or fighting for Sheehan, Clio's city. This book had non-stop action and plot twists that had the air knocked out of me multiple times. Every page was even more

I loved the first book, Sacrificed, so I was really looking forward to the next book in the series. Let me tell you, I was blown away. The writing is like poetry and flows so effortlessly. The new characters are rich and have depth, bringing even more emotion to the story. The overall story line is exciting and it's a real page turner. I especially loved the tension between Clio and Riece, their tender contention toward each other is just perfection. The imagination and world building that goes ...more

"Do you have any idea what it feels like to try to hate someone you love? It's agony. Beyond agony. It's like there's something deep inside you, eating away at your insides. I couldn't do anything, I was so full of anger. Every day it got worse. Because it goes against my very nature to hate you. Hating you - it's like trying not to breathe."

There is no denying the fact that Emily Wibberley is taking the fantasy and action genre by storm with this thrilling, action packed series! This author is one you don't want to miss!

Due to this being the second book of the series and since I am not one for spoiling other readers, I have added two warnings to a large paragraph of my review to avoid spoiling you. Read at your own risk!

There’s so much that could go wrong with a sequel, particularly when the first installment sets up a wider world for the story and higher stakes the way Sacrificed did so compellingly. So the thrill of Forsworn is in part the deftness with which the author’s realized the promises she set up for us in the series opener.

What’s so special about Forsworn, though, is everything new. This installment handles magnificently the tricky balancing act that is the art of following up a strong, self-possesse

Forsworn, the second volume in The Last Oracle series (after Sacrificed), is another great, suspenseful, emotionally rich story centered on Clio—a powerful young woman with deeply felt loyalties who is gifted/burdened with visions of the future.

What makes Forsworn so great are many elements also present in Sacrificed: first and foremost Clio, simply an awesome female central character; distinct supporting characters with their own strengths, challenges, and charms; a distinctive Mesoamerican-esq

I liked this book as much as the first one, if not even more.
It starts a year after we last saw Clio in the last book. When we first see her again in this book she seems darker, even more serious than in the last book. Hardened by all she went through. Though she is not cowering in a corner not she is fighting. She is a warrior through and through in all aspects.

This cover looks better in person than it does online! I think it's one of the coolest book covers on my shelf!

I bought the book without reading the summary because I was just too excited about getting it. I read the summary when it came in and was shocked to find that the book is set a year after ending of the first book (Sacrificed). I immediately started panicking because that meant that Clio hadn't seen Riece in a year and that was not okay for me.

And, speaking of Riece, let's focus on him f

I adored Sacrificed when I read it earlier this year. I could hardly wait until Forsworn came out. Now, after reading Forsworn I really want the next book as well. This was such a good book!

Forsworn starts a year after Sacrificed ended. Clio and Derik are defending Sheehan from hordes of Untouched who have been at the gates for a year. Clio is no longer the scared girl pushing her visions away. Instead she is a hardened warrior using her visions to guide her city’s army.

I didn't have to read many pages before remembering why I adored book 1, Sacrificed. Wibberley does a fine job meriting her choice of heroine/protagonist, and making her part believable. Clio has grown between the end of the first book and the beginning of this one, obviously, since a year has passed, but still! She is accepting her duty, if not embracing it, *sigh*, and she is no crybaby either, having managed to prove herself worthy of her fellow warriors' acceptance.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is the second in a series, and it is essential that you begin with Sacrificed for this book to make sense. Sacrificed left me a little deflated and a lot expectant, so I was happy to finally get my hands on the sequel. I was a little surprised by Clio who seems battle hardened and calculating when this book opens. She isn't the girl who ran from her fate in the first book, and that seems to be one of the major internal and ext ...more

Forsworn!!! I got a chance to read an ARC of this book. It's will be released on july 21st and it's the second book in the The Last Oracle series. The first book is Sacrificed. It's an amazing fantasy ya series, with wonderful characters, especially the girls in the book are so bad-ass.

This book was wonderful (although not quite as great as the first one) but I found myself confused for the firs 75 pages wondering why Riece and her were at odds.

Like the jealousy part I get...

jealousy

But the hatred...seems...forced really.

And poor Prince Derik - he loves her so but he just never measures up. We love you but we love Riece more. And so does Clio.

This book takes us much closer to the truth though and we leave the book with a better sense of closure than we had in book one.

Forsworn is the second book in "The Last Oracle" series by Emily Wibberley and readers who liked the first book will also like the second one. I loved the first book, because it was well written and has a different setting than other books. The second book is just as well written as the first, but I did not like it as much. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I was never hooked to the story as with the first one. The pacing is fast and the reader learns more about the history of the oracles ...more

This is a show stopping book. I loved the sequel even more than the first book which is really rare for me. Clio is almost like a new character. She has embraced her destiny and willing to try it a new way. It was a great change of pace. It was interesting to see the Clio develop but I missed her from the first book. You do get to see glimpses of the old Clio. I was pretty much on the fence after the first book whether I was team Derik or Riece. I have decided I am totally team Riece. I love how ...more

Wow. I loved Sacrificed, and I definitely loved Forsworn. At first, I was rather shocked by the Clio vs. Riece feud, but I got over it with them.

Emily Wibberley is a very skilled writer. She reveals so much more as Forsworn reaches it's ending, and I love all the revelations and secrets brought into light as well as the mystery that accompanies them.

I definitely admire Clio. She is stubborn, brave, and will do anything for the people's sh

I so did not see any of that coming! I loved Sacrificed and to return to this world just made be really happy. From the characters to the setting to the plot, every page kept me hooked throughout the story. I wasn't sure how this was going to top Sacrificed in any way but it did and I loved every single minute of it! Emily Wibberley is an amazing author who gave us such an amazing series!

Definitely an improvement from the previous book which I read 2 years ago and completely forgotten.

Fortunately this was filled with enough action and adventure that I managed to pick up the story again without the need to re-read the 'The Last Oracle' (though I needed to read a few reviews with spoilers to recap what happened). The ending is much more satisfying and I'm inspired to continue on with the next book.

No matter how frustrated I got with Clio (she really drove me nuts with so many of her decisions) or with what was going on between her and Riece, the story was great enough to hold me and wanting more. Something was always happening plus we learn a lot more about the history of the Oracles and their deities. And at the end we get a pretty interesting surprise about Clio's mother.

Much like the first book though, I still had a hard time remembering how young Clio is sometimes. She has changed a l

Lets take a moment to appreciate that cover!!! Love the badass chic warrior on it and it sure does represent Clio, our leading lady to the fullest in this story!

"Bravery is looking at the world around you, and seeing each moment for what it is- a choice."

Just like the original book, I should have read this much sooner than I actually got around to it. I had already bought the last book in the series (Divined) before I even started this. But after reading the first one I knew I'd have to know how this story finishes out. My plan is to read Divined next on my kindle. Now I can't tak

Recently, I was able to read an advanced copy of Forsworn, the sequel to Emily Wibberley’s book, Sacrificed. Often times, the second book in a series doesn’t live up to the first. But I would say in the case of Forsworn, it far exceeds the original.

The story takes place a year later from the end of Sacrificed. The main character, Clio, has fought in many battles and is now a seasoned warrior. She is also (secretly) the Oracle. Using visions of the future provided by the Deities, Clio fights to

Forsworn was a delight to read. As someone who's been struggling to find a plot that captivates me long enough recently, Wibberley provided me with the perfect place to dive back into books.

Clio, continuing from Sacrificed, is still the strong, spitfire, headstrong girl she was. I loved seeing how accepting the mantle of the Oracle changed her, and it was great to see her relationship with Derik evolve and change.
Most important to me, though, was see Clio flourish on her own. Yes, she is pining

Even better than the first one. Extremely better, aside from the bickering couple.

Forsworn brought up front and center to what exactly the Oracle is, and what being one meant. It brought a challenge to Clio’s identity, and some clarity on her family. Her character development fascinates me, but it doesn’t come as close to how excited I get when a fight scene starts up. It’s ruthless, brutal, and always has been holding my breath.

If it isn’t that, I’m gasping from all the twist and turns Wibberl
