Thea Harrison - Oracle's Moon

When Grace Andreas's sister, Petra, and her husband are both killed, Grace inherits the Power and responsibilities of the Oracle of Louisville, as well as her sister's two young children--neither of which she is prepared for. Then Khalil, Demonkind and Djinn Prince of House Marid, decides to make himself a part of the household both as guardian and counterpoint to Grace's impudence towards the Elder Races.

Comment: Some books just leave me wondering how authors can be so bipolar in their work?? How is it possible for them to write things so extreme in its differences that one is left thinking, is this by the same person?
Well, this author does that. She wrote one of the most boring books I've read (Storm's Heart) and now, in the same series, she writes this Oracle's Moon that was one of the most beautifully written romances ever! How can this be? Thoughts for later.

This is the story of Grace, the newest Oracle, left with the Power after her sister died. Then there's Kahlil, the Djinn that vows to protect Grace's nephew and niece. Kahlil and Grace don't get along that well at first but when Grace's feels threatened by all the Elder Races unknowns she still hadn't time to find out about, she kind of requests Kahlil's help with the children and this is something he won't refuse.
I loved that they didn't get along in the beginning and! lol
The story starts right after the end of Serpent's Kiss and we're left wondering how Grace and Kahlil might fall in love because they really don't like each other but then one thing after another they realize the other is so much more than they thought and with trust and respect comes love.
I loved it! A classical romance, beautiful to watch and to go along. The storyline makes sense and it's appealing, interesting, moves along nicely and offers very god scenes.
The romance is obviously perfect (in my opinion) and doesn't happen right away, it's something believable, how I loved watching this!
The plot of full of twists about Grace's power and she does some things that endeared her to me and to Kahlil and it was great. I felt that everything fit perfectly in this story, there wasn't left any piece to complete the picture, it still amazes me how everything felt, sounded and was perfect!
I finished the book last week but I just can't avoid looking at my favorite scenes, I just get so happy over some things...this books is great! Truly, it is. This is why I feel so bad because of book just seems so unlikely that this is the same author...
Oh well, I'm basking in the glow of the wonder that is Oracle's is worth all and every penny. I don't even know what to say about it that would make it justice, just...go get it.


  1. You're not the first person to think this way about this series... and Book#2 in particular. Interesting. I've read Dragon Bound and LOVED it. Oddly enough, I haven't been dying to read more in this world.. I don't know why.

  2. Well, the thing about series is that we want to know more about some characters, we hope to see loved ones in following books, otherwise I'd simply suggest that you skipped books #2 and #3 and jump right to this one...but I like to respect a series order so I get if others do this too. But book#2 is really boring. Book #3 is much better and this 4th one is perfect!

  3. I just saw the cover art for book #5 which is back to Dragos and Pia. Interesting..

  4. Yes, I just hope she won't mess up with their relationship..they were good, why complicate? ...
