Two thousand years ago and more, seekers came from far-off lands to hear the prophecies of the Delphi oracles. These priestesses, aided by their pythons, inhaled the vapors from Mother Gaia below their feet and saw great visions of things to come. Their sight foretold wars, warned of catastrophes, aided political marriages and village life, and planned for a brighter futur Two thousand years ago and more, seekers came from far-off lands to hear the prophecies of the Delphi oracles. These priestesses, aided by their pythons, inhaled the vapors from Mother Gaia below their feet and saw great visions of things to come. Their sight foretold wars, warned of catastrophes, aided political marriages and village life, and planned for a brighter future. Into the world, Daelia returns to Delphi with her daughter, a neophyte priestess. Though Daelia would be content studying the ancient writings and searching for herbs in the mountains, the Goddess has other plans for her. Not only is she meant to give oracles, but she is destined to become a powerful High Priestess. Doing the work of the Goddess is rewarding, but leading the most renowned collection of seers in history has its difficulties, too. Temple politics, the ever-present threat of barbarian hordes, and an unseen but ultimate betrayal leave Daelia with no choice but to invoke the terrifying Ring of Fire.

    The historical information is interesting, but the writing is not so great. You can tell the author is really informed, but the characters feel really flat and I found myself not caring about them very much. Again the setting is really interesting and I think that's why I finished the book. Hate to say it, but not really recommended.
