Goodreads Blurb:
Inspired by Slavic mythology, Damien’s Oracle is the entree into the ongoing 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.

My Review: 
This was a fast paced story with lots of action. I think I read the whole book in two sittings. Sofia, poor thing, gets her whole life turned into a nightmare overnight and is thrust into this whole new world but she has a gift like no other. She can see people's past and future. She needs the blood of Damian the god of all things good in order to survey and its almost impossible to deny the intense attraction between them. Damian must make her his mate but is worried about what that means. He literally carries the world on his shoulders keeping it from evil. Damian is super hot and the attraction between the two is also super hot throughout the book but there is no graphic sex scenes in this book so its also YA friendly. The world building flowed with the story line and was covered very well. There wasn't a big cliffhanger at the end of this book but it will for sure make you want to read the next book in the series which I plan to do in the very near future. I would recommend this book to paranormal romance, urban fantasy and YA fans.
