Sheep Book Review: Oracle's Moon by Thea Harrison

Oracle's Moon, by Thea Harrison, is the fourth novel in the Elder Race Saga. Things get back on track after a little fumble from book 3, Serpent's Kiss, now THIS book showcases why I love the Elder Race so much!

Plot:
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.

Our latest addition to the saga brings everything that I've come to love about Thea's writing back to the series. This amazing author has the ability to create such authentic characters I'm somehow amazed these guys and gals can't just leap off the page. Although that would be pretty frighting really, but since they can't I don't have to worry about tracking down a witch to get the latest protective spell on my home.

Khalil, a Prince among the Demonkind, won me over from the start; this guy has it all and a backpack full of tricks he's glad to whip out at any time. He's the total package with the tortured hero past, "I don't really care, but please hold me! No wait don't!" attitude going on. When this guy falls in love he falls hard and with his soft spot for kids he's quickly become my new sex dream fantasy. Yeah, I said it and I won't apologize! (Sorry Dad lol) With the ability to turn into any shape/form and transport to any destination, which btw would save a ton of money on airfare, Khalil brings it all to the table in his pursuit of the human Oracle, Grace.

After losing her sister in a horrible car crash, Grace is now the sole guardian to her sister's two small children. At the age of 23 this gal not only has to take on the role of Mom but she's also the new Oracle for all of Demonkind. It's a hefty plate this young gal has to lug around but she doesn't complain, cry and whine about it, or give up and run away. Feisty, snarky and ready to kick butt! I loved Grace as our female lead, no other gal could have held a candle to our heroine standing side by side with Khalil. She may be a mortal human but don't let that fool you. I loved her so much I was actually sad this story ended at 313 pages. Easily this book could have been 100 pages longer and I probably still would have wanted more.

No grammar errors that I could catch which I can't say enough how much that means to a reader. A plot-line I could truly get behind and an entertaining book that left me laughing out loud and emotional the next. And romance! I won't say more on that subject because it'd be spoiler ridden. Everything you could want or need is right under your fingertips waiting to be read. If you've yet to start this saga get a move on it but start from book one and work your way up. This saga deserves that much and while you can pick up from here you won't have the same emotional investment.

  2. I love this series. Usually I tend to like one book over another in a series. Sometimes I can relate to certain chacters more or I just don't enjoy a certain story as much. Not the case here, they have all been great.

    Khalil melted my heart. I loved his interaction with the little ones. I liked Grace too. For me, her reaction in the moon scene was bit over the top. I hope that since we found out where her powers come from that she will be able to help Carling. It was great to see Rune again.

    1. Khalil was a fantastic front man for this book! I fell head forst for him. Loved his moments of not knowing what to do when dating someone and just all his antics of trying to be mr bossy pants. Truly was a fun read that kept me happy from bringing to end. Can not wait for the next edition! :)
