Talk about an epic read. I knew when I saw the description for this story that I would enjoy the adventure, but I had no idea I was going to be sucked into a whole new epic tale! The story of Clara is engaging and riveting. Taken as a young girl into slavery and enduring the atrocities of being a slave, she’s raised with a thick collar around her neck and doing what others tell her to do. But little did anyone know that she is quite the specialty. Known as a Seer, she has visions of the future and can see various outcomes to situations or clear answers as to things that are going to happen.
The kingdom is in chaos as the Wizards have taken over the role of King when they usurped his position many years ago. The Captain of the Rebel army is also someone Clara met a very long time ago and all of their stories interweave in such a way that you can feel the crumbling of everyone’s world as this story unfolds.
Absolutely magnificent story that has me clutching for the next installment in this series. Thankfully I have them all and can keep going without stopping because I’d be an absolute mess if I couldn’t keep finding out what was happening.
One of the things I am loving most about this story is how strong and brave Clara is. Even after everything she’s endured, she stays strong for herself. Slavery took her voice, but it will not take her soul and she will continue to fight for herself, her freedom and those that are treated horrendously by those that are in power. A force to be reckoned with, Clara will warm your heart and feed that need for an epic tale that we readers all love and enjoy to ends of the earth!

About The Book
Join an amazing adventure about love, loss, and the fate of kingdoms.
As a slave, Clara’s life extends no further than the castle kitchens and their garden. However, she carries within herself a precious gift: the ability to see the future.
When a vision prompts her to prevent a murder, Clara is shoved not only into the intrigues of the nobility but also into a civil war. As events unfold, she begins to unearth chilling secrets about the war and her supposed friends.
Driven to learn the truth, Clara embarks on a journey that takes her from her beloved mountains to the very Capital itself, Bertrand. There, she is confronted by an evil as old as the mountains–and it’s using her anger and prejudices against her. If she is not careful, not only will the entire nation be lost, but Clara’s own soul as well.
