"Damian's Oracle" ( An Ashley Review)

Welcome to the world of an awesome war story!!!! "Damian's Oracle" by Lizzy Ford, is the first of the War of God's series. This book follows Damian and his Oracle, Sofia, who helps him in more ways than one. I liked it because it kind of has a Greek feel to it, but is also a dark thrill ride. This book also has a beautiful cover and I downloaded it to my Kindle but kind of wish I had it in paperback, but anyways this book is so worth the money I might just have to try to find it in paperback.




Here is the books summary taken from Goodreads....
  "Inspired by Slavic mythology, Damien’s Oracle is the entry into the on-going battle between good and evil over the fate of humanity. The White God, Damian, and his Guardians protect the world from the Black God and his monsters while rescuing Naturals – humans with extraordinary paranormal gifts - from the Black God, who would kill or convert them.  Caught in the middle is cool-headed Sofia, a Natural whose gift will tip the scales in the war. Sofia begins her transformation from human into oracle, the first in thousands of years. Damian rescues her from the Black God in time to complete a ceremony that will bind her to him for eternity. Sofia struggles with her new world and her role as an oracle and Damian’s mate while haunted by a mysterious man from Damian’s past who’s supposed to be dead. Unbeknownst to her, her link to the dead man may be all that saves Damian, his Guardians, and the fate of humanity.While he wants nothing more than for the petite beauty to take her place at his side like the oracles of legend did his White God forefathers, Damian can’t quite rationalize having to win her over instead of command her. Further complicating his life is the sobering realization that there are spies in his organization who are helping the Black God take out his Guardians. Damian must help Sofia reach her potential fast, especially when a threat from his past returns."

Sofia doesn't know what is happening to her, all she knows is that anytime she touches a person, she sees how they are going to die. With this curse, as she sees it, she is unable to form any romantic connections that last, until she meets Damian. Every time Damian touches her he takes the images away from her and she sees nothing. When she finds out that she is a powerful oracle, she doesn't want to believe it, all she wants to do is return home and try to resume her life. When worse comes to worse she finds herself struggling with adapting to a world she knows nothing about and has to teach herself how to use her powers, so she can see more than people's death. This book shows the struggles of a young woman and the fight she has against her feelings from the man who saved her life, who also is over baring, and will give as much back as she gives him. Can she learn to control her powers and accept her fate or will she fail and lose everything she has come to hold dear.

Happy Reading!!!!
