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
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
Rating 4.5

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. A talented author will enable you to feel these emo
02/09/15 reread: Next to Dragon Bound, this is my other comfort read in this series. Something about how Grace's plight makes Khalil reexamine everything he thinks he knows gets to me. HARD. Yep, I still love this one like mad.

Standard disclaimer: I love this series. Seriously, I'm stupidly in love with every little piece of this world. I plan on fangirling so hard that I'm going to need oxygen before I get to the end of this review.

Yeah. So. This book blew me away. I mean, for the love of
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. Grace and Khalil's relationship, as well as the ...more
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

Oracle's Moon renewed my faith in this series. While the second two books in the series weren't bad, they also weren't what I was expecting after reading Dragon Bound. So I wasn't sure how this one would turn out. Thankfully, it was awesome. Khalil is definitely my favorite male from this series so far and for me he totally made this book.

We met Grace and Khalil in the last book, Serpent's Kiss. Grace, as the Oracle, helps Carling and Rune with the problem they're having. But Grace has been push
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
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! The practical problems of an Oracle who's a single mother of two small children and has real financial problems could have been a bit lame, but I really bought in ...more

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.
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.
3 1/2 stars for me. Now having said that, that doesn't mean that I didn't like the book as much as the others...I did. 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. For Grace's part, she will admit that she is attracted to the big hunk of energy, but with taken the kids after her sister and brother in law was kill ...more
Terrific read. I will admit I wasn't much into the last 2 books. Loved the first one but that was about it. I'm glad to see the series is coming back to what it used to be.

There's nothing more lovely than creativity...
This was seriously an original and distinctive read, one very different from all of those out there on the pnr-romance genre. That was what I loved the most about it. This is not a book about the usual vampire or werewolf. Be ready for weird demon species, witches, an or

My first read of 2012

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.

Loved. It.

There's just something about the way Thea Harrison writes that's so compelling you just can't help but get sucked into her 'Elder Races' stories. While I've enjoyed them all immensely and would say this is one of my favorite paranormal series, there was something so magical about that first book, 'Dragon Bound', it was cemented as my top pick... but 'Oracle's Moon' was so good it rivals DB and I'd be hard-pressed to pick one over the other.

"Khalil's presence eased into the living room before his physical form appeared. Intense, male, sensual, he curled around her with lazy intent. The tiny hairs along the back of her neck and arms rose.

Invisible arms came around Grace. Her mouth fell open, and her thoughts stuttered. Large, unseen hands stroked up her arms, along her shoulders, and trailed up the back of her neck. Long, strong finge
A pretty awesome addition to the series! The best thing about it is that as the Oracle to the Elder races, Gracie is a mere human and a young one at that! The strength of character she showed by taking on the burden of her orphaned niece and nephew whilst still recovering from the horrific injuries she herself sustained from the car accident that killed her older sister and husband. And the courage it takes when there's no money as well! And her kick-ass attitude! She's definitely my kind of her ...more
What I love about Thea Harrison's Elder Races series is that it surprises me each time. I loved Serpent's Kiss, but was not initially sold on Khalil as the male lead. I am so glad to be wrong, it was a story that took it's time, which gave ME time to warm up (heat up!) towards Khalil.

Grace started out a bit whiny for me, but grew a backbone demonstrating the strength of her love for Chloe and Max - strange how kids will suck you in, just ask Khalil...

Very enjoyable read!
Saying that I can't really get into this series would be the understatement of the year. Strike one, Strike two, and Strike three and now I'm out! The first book in the Elder Races Series, Dragon Bound was truly amazing, but the fact remains that it took me awhile to get into the book, maybe at least half the book it took me to really get interested. Don't even talk to me about the other books, because those were duds. But what I'm saying is I'm done. This is the third chance I"ve gave this seri ...more
Second read July 2014...I am not much of a re-reader, but my plans to savor this in audio fell prey to my greed - I was just going to read a few pages on my Kindle and before I knew it I'd gobbled the whole thing down. This may be my favorite Elder Races book. Oh well, maybe the third time will be the charm...

Mandi Schreiner
In this installment of Thea Harrison’s Elder Races series, we dive into the world of Djinn and oracles. This book starts right where Serpent’s Kiss ends, but can be read as a stand alone.

Khalil was called to Grace’s house as a payment of a debt he owed to the vampire Carling at the end of Serpent’s Kiss. He was sent to keep Grace’s niece and nephew safe, as she dealt with a barrage of wyr and vampires and other supernatural creatures on her property. Grace has recently inherited the power of an
After careful consideration I have decided it is time for me to end my relationship with the Elder Races series.

I really liked the first book (Dragos and Pia), the second book (Tiago and Trix, or whatever her name was changed to), was the beginning of the end for us, the third (Rune and Carling) really turned me off and at that point I was ready to give up. But wait, NO!!! The only part of Serpent's Kiss that I DID enjoy was the banter between Grace and the Djinn, so I was willing to give it on

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.”
