To save the people she loves, Erynn consented to carry within herself the soul of the cruel man who once enslaved them—Sebastian, London’s criminal mastermind and soul-dealing sorcerer. Day by day, she wonders whether she will become as evil as he was—and whether her friends will be forced to kill her to keep that evil from destroying them all.
Now, Sebastian’s restless soul wakes her in the darkest hours of night. He compels her to search the dungeons beneath her home to uncover a secret so explosive it may turn her against her friends.
Erynn’s discovery may leave her with no choice but to trust Sebastian with the shreds of her life and her clockwork heart. She and Sebastian both understand that the consequences of such trust could be deadly.
In fact, they’re counting on it.
Oracle is a standalone novella, and the third story in Leslie Claire Walker’s series, The Clockwork Heart Tales.
Sorcery. Alchemy. Necromancy. Friends and enemies who have lost everything but the fire of magic that burns within.
Join Erynn’s journey of courage, strength, and heart. Bewitching love awaits…
“There is a complexity to Leslie Claire Walker’s stories that invites the imagination to put away the worries of the day-to-day and abandon oneself in realms as fraught with danger as they are joy.” – Phaedra Weldon, National Bestselling Author
