Oh how I loved Khalil's protective instinct. It absolutely melted me. I enjoyed that this wasn't instant love as Khalil actually unfairly judged Grace at first when he didn't understand all that she went through and did for her niece and nephew. The growth between them was related beautifully with distinct changes to both their dynamic as individuals and considering their ever growing powers as well as them as a couple and eventual family. Khalil was a trip with his formal, organized, and antiqu ...more

Grace has more responsibilities and struggles than any 23 year old should have to deal with. Her sister, Petra, and brother-in-law were killed in a car crash. She was also in the car and suffered extensive damage to her knee that is painful on a daily basis. She also became the guardian to her young niece and nephew. As if that wasn’t enough, the Power of the Oracle transferred from Petra to Grace and now she’s learning how to control th

If I won one of those multi-million dollar lotteries, after using a portion of my extensive wealth for good... and maintaining my harem of hot men... I would throw gobs and gobs of money at Thea Harrison until she agreed to come live next door and write me stories every day. This lady continues to completely knock my socks with her Elder Races series. And Oracle's Moon may be my favorite yet.

The super-sexy man at the center of this book is Khalil. As the last book ended, the djinn agreed to watc

Normally I don't like children predominantly featured in my paranormal books, they get in the way of fights, action, killing times. You get the picture. However, in this book they enhanced it and added to the hero's appeal and the heroine's life. The children weren't obtrusive, nor did they completely subsume the plot.

The story is about Grace, the newly me intend Oracle (of Delphi), located in KY. She became the Oracle when her sister and brother-in-law died in a car accident a few months ago a
Blacky *Romance Addict*

While the romance here is lovely and the main dude awesome, there is a surprising lack of action in this one, and I mean absolutely nothing happens through most of the book, one or two intense scenes being the exception. I guess I'm used to my PNR to be more dynamic and faster, not just centered on thoughts and conversations. Same as in the previous two books, the second half of it is unbelievably mushy, so that got me from 5 stars while reading the first half to 3 stars after finally finishing

Wow! It's been almost a full day and I'm still excited (that's sayin' something right there, folks). Ok, so the entire time I was reading this book, the song "A Whole New World" from Disney's ALADIN was playing in my head. Probably because that movie genie was my go to genie reference before now. Now, Khalil will always and forever be my number one Djinn. You can't call Khalil a genie, he's a Djinn Prince. Plus they aren't called genies in the book. And Genie- ALA

I loved the first book in the series and with the rest I had problems because I felt the other things, like politics over-shadowed the romance but this one wasn't like this. It was all romance and I loved it.

Grace was the new Oracle after her sister and her husband died. It was a role she never thought she would have to take and instead of dealing with the grief of losing her family, she has no time, she has her niece and nephew to take care of, a new role to play as well as deal with

"You’re perfectly safe. I’ve got you. I’ve always got you. You’re mine. I will never let go. I will always protect you. You are my life now. Do you understand anything I’m saying?”

Khalil, so sweet! *sigh*. Really, I admire Thea Harrison, she writes amazing, varied, fascinating characters. Especially the heroes. I liked this installment a lot, but maybe in part to my mood wasn't able to fully enjoy it. Still, another winner by TH. Not to mention-that excerpt from the next book... Wow!

I wasn't sure what to expect going into this novel. It picks up where Serpent's Kiss left off (I believe it's the morning after the events that transpired at the end of the book). Though this can probably stand alone, I recommend reading Serpent's Kiss first.

This novel is much more internally focused than the previous books were. While there is outside conflict, it doesn't come to play until later in the book. Mostly we got to see Grace and Kahlil interacting with each other on a daily basis, i

After the disappointment of Serpent's Kiss, Thea Harrison has completely redeemed herself with this book.
Kahlil & Grace's relationship was breathtakingly sweet. Watching it progress & grow from "protection" to love was a journey! I think my favorite part of romance books is experiencing new love with the characters. The butterflies in the stomach, the anticipation of the others arrival, the expectation of the first kiss.

I really liked this entry into the Elder Races series. Which is good - because I *hated* the last book.

Grace won me over from the moment I met her in the last book. She is warm-hearted and caring and fighting her own battles. Ultimately, what won me over was her relationship with the children. And, Khalil's love of her children. This was absolutely precious to me. She was snarky enough to hold my attention, but always caring and giving.

The mystery in this book was so limited as to almost be unne
4 to 4.5 stars!!

This was another wonderful book in the series. I really love the world Harrison has created.

The main couple in Oracle's Moon, Khalil and Grace, had a beautiful romance and love story. So far, Harrison's heroes are 3 for 3 in my eyes (I skipped book 3); each one is pure perfection! They are perfect alphas who are 100% protective, possessive, affectionate and loving to the heroines. The three I have read about (Dragos, Tiago and Khalil) are totally swoon-worthy. The heroines (Pia,
With any great series, it's hard for each news book to stand up to high expectations. Add to that a first book that has joined the ranks of "re-read favorites", and I was paralyzed with excitement and fear when I picked up ORACLE'S MOON. No one is more excited than I to find that no only did ORACLE'S MOON stand up to how much I enjoyed SERPENT'S KISS, it has joined DRAGON BOUND as a book that I know I'll be re-reading to enjoy again in the future.

I mean, this is a 3 1/2 for me overall, but I enjoyed the hero so much and his malapropisms, that I bumped it up, haha. This is a continuation of a series that I read the first one in (and enjoyed in a really tongue-in-cheek way). We picked this as an alt in my Vaginal Fantasy book because it was "Djinn" month, and I really enjoyed it!

I didn’t realize a formless Djinn could be so sexy, but now that I do, I want one for my very own!

I am truly a fan of this series. Ms. Harrison’s world building is so dynamic that I get caught up in it from the very first page. She also has a wonderful ability for writing such witty dialog that I can’t help but fall in love with the characters. The whole psychic connection between Khalil (sexy, arrogant Djinn hero) and Grace (sweet, smart, badass heroine) was fascinating to me. Their

My high school math teacher told me that the words "indeed" and "splendid" were disappearing from the English language. Not if Thea Harrison has anything to say about it! INDEED, this book is the most erotic Elder Races yet! Holy smokes, and I'm not just talking about Kahlil. After the measured pacing of Serpent's Kiss, Ms. Harrison comes back in a rush. This book is charming (hey, how can it not be with two small children in the mix?) and Kahlil is endearing - a fish out of water who falls in l ...more
4.5 stars. Grace struggles to raise her dead sister's children. A wickedly hot Djinn "helps" a little. Good thing he's on the scene when danger stalks, but Grace finds that she's no victim. Girl power is a Louisville oracle. Tender. Sexy. Suspenseful. Sometimes funny. Loved it! Loved the children, too.

She looked at him oddly. “You are still in contact with her? I—would not have expected that to go well.” “She is my friend.” Khalil crossed his arms. “We are going on a date tonight.” Silence filled the villa. Both Carling and Rune stood frozen. Khalil had nearly forgotten one detail. He added thoughtfully, “I am to dress casually.”

Let's give Thea Harrison a big round of applause!!! That book was amazing! It just knocked off Dragon Bound from the top of my favorite list, I kid you not.

OMG! Thea Harrison undid herself! She created such fun, well-written characters in this book(we have to have another one about them :D they have more to say). The great thing is that it didn't end as I feared, thank you gods! This will be one of the books that I'll love to re-read.

Favorite quotes(there were more but I was to absorbed in the book to write them down :D):

(April) - 4.5* - I loved this book! I've decided I'm not very deep- or maybe I'm not very smart! I read reviews for books and people get very into their reviews - talking about what they expected from certain characters or authors, or going on about things that just make me go "huh?" I read so many series that I get quite forgetful about the details of characters or worlds, etc. I think that makes it easy - I read most books w/little expectation other than a good story, good characters, lots of ...more

This is my favorite book in the series so far!

Wow. That was pretty-freakin-awesome. I could definitely see myself reading this again in the future.. it was that good!
The characters were kickass. The sex was (wow) out of this world. The storyline was great even though there wasn't all that much action, the parts that were.. woah. So cool and intense!
I love the Elder Race world. Its so incredibly intriguing.

Im seriously devouring this series.. Gawsh. So goooood!

5/5; 5 stars; A+

This book is a fantastic example of a paranormal romance, with emphasis on the romance. I really enjoyed the way Khalil and Grace's characters were developed and how the story unfolded. I like how Harrison is not afraid to make a female character who seems like she might be weak and not very kick ass, but deep inside there lurks a mighty heroine. Grace was that heroine. Awesome.

Khalil is my other book boyfriend in this series. I have no idea why I love arrogant men so much, but daaaammmn, he was awesome. And Grace, she was sassy, strong, flawed, and perfect. These two made me laugh.

I'd learned from Dragon Bound, though, and didn't stay up until 2 am reading although I wanted to. It was a freaken struggle to put the book down.

We met Djinn Khalil at the end of the last book, where he became fascinated with Grace and her two kids. He keeps hanging around, until he has to come to admit that it is more than the kids that keep drawing him back to the house.

What a great book to start my year of reading. Not only that Ms. Harrison did NOT DISAPPOINT, she EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS! I could not askfor anything more from this book.

Oracle's Moon can be a stand alone read as Ms. Harrison does well explaining the important point to the series. But because this is such awonderful world to follow, I strongly suggest reading in chronological order.

Grace's lovely, tired face wobbled with looked suspiciously like mirth, but she had been under so much stress he decided his first impression could not be correct.

"You'll achieve pancakes?"

"I do not see why not" he said

"Have you ever achieved them before?" she said

"That question is irrelevant," he told her, while his eyes narrowed in suspicion on her tired face. On a Djinn, her expression would definitely be laughter. "I will achieve pancakes now.”
