"Acacia is the Oracle of Delphi. She should be revered, protected, maybe even worshiped, but instead, she is held captive by Apollo’s priests and forced to breathe fumes that induce her naturally occurring visions. When a warlord comes to her for counsel, freedom seems to be within her grasp, provided she can convince him release her and risk the wrath of the gods."
This story was full of Greek mythology, gods and history. The scene was set masterfully and the characters were well defined and easy to see as the story unfolded.
There was action, excitement and a love story to boot!
Acacia is a strong character and it is a shame we only get a short time with her! She is chained in place over the fumes to increase visions and to prevent her from leaving. Acacia is often left overnight hanging in her chains as the priests whose job it is to care for her ... just don't! She is a tool that brings them what they want ... payment & tributes. One of those times she is visited by Apollo in a vision; where he tells her that her fate is not yet sealed. Does she change her fate? Read it to see!
This was a fun introduction to the Sirens we will meet in the next (at least) 3 books ... we also get to know why they are the way they are by reading this short novella!
Give it a try, it was worth it!
In this retelling of the Oracle at Delphi's story, the oracles are mostly ordinary women, imprisoned annually by the priests for their own pleasure. One, Acacia, has a true gift for speaking with the god Apollo and receiving visions. She is chained in place over the fumes to prevent her from leaving, and sometimes the priests forget to return her to her cell overnight and leave her hanging in her chains. One day, Apollo tells her that if she leaves, she will remain connected to Apollo. Soon afterward, a petitioner, Orestes, arrives and sees the hidden chains. He is incensed and determines to free her.
Apollo gives her a vision about Orestes and two possible futures -- death or long-lasting love.
A captivating read that flows perfectly. The characters are well rounded and the story is written flawlessly.
This is the first book I have read from this Author and am excited to move on to the next.
