Clara | 3 comments Okay, so this contains spoilers:

the book focuses on a prehistoric priestess/shaman lady. I believe there is a series of books, these details may span the series.

The things I remember are:
-a mosaic of a snake in her village center is referred to often
-the mention of sacred poppy/opium honey
-at one point she ingests the honey and has a vision
-her people are enslaved by an incoming warlike group of people at some point in the series (who might be vaguely viking-ish, although I think this book is meant to take place much earlier than that
-she comes up with the idea to overthrow these people by making a stew feeding them off-season (toxic) shellfish
-horses MIGHT show up at some point in this series?

Thank you thank you for your help!

The Oracle Betrayed by Catherine Fisher?

Clara, around what year did you read this book? This will help narrow down the search.

Can you describe where she lives - e.g., jungle, mountains, Britain, Europe, etc.?
