Hey there! Today is the fourth day in the Blog Tour for Emily Wibberley’s latest book Forsworn and I’m so excited that I had the opportunity to participate in it.
In this post you will find all the infos to Forsworn, which is the second book of the Last Oracle series, but also all infos about the first book Sacrificed.
Also down below you can find an Excerpt and a giveaway for a paperpack of Forsworn and Forsworn Swag.
Then before you can actually go on to read all the deeds about the books, I apologize up ahead, but I went a little colour-crazy. Whoops, my bad. Sorry, not sorry.
About The Book: Forsworn – The Last Oracle II
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.

Excerpt of Forsworn
“Open the doors,” Derik commanded, and the halls rang with the grinding of stone sliding against stone.
Cold air swept through the room, chilling Clio through the meager protection of her cloak. In the distance, the three torches were steadily growing, and time crawled. Clio’s knuckles whitened against the hilt of her hidden blade.
After eternities passed, a dozen men filed into the throne room. Each bore a great shield covered in the plumage of his rank. Most wore blue, but a couple wore the red of the second rank. Clio sat, poised for the attack, but the men formed into two rows just before the throne and stood with their shields held against their chests.
Clio looked to Derik, confused. The Morek warriors stood silent and unmoving. Finally, another set of footsteps sounded from across the room. Clio had to twist her neck to catch a glimpse of who approached, terrified that the Emperor himself had decided to lead this attack.
But the man who strolled past the warriors was someone much more dangerous.
About The Book: Sacrificed – The Last Oracle Book I
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.
