4.5 STARS
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 oracle and more, much more.

THE PLOT
To be able to fall in love with a presumptuous and conceited demon, you have to be a very interesting heroine. Grace (the Oracle) was definitely that. 23-year-old Gracie lost her sister in a terrible car crash that left her legs all scarred and barely working. She also ended with 2 young babies at her care and nobody to help her financially or give her any support. And if that hadn't been enough, she also had to become the Oracle, the only being on Earth capable of seeing past, perfect and future.

While she was trying to find a way to cope with all this, she meets this arrogant, self-assured Djinn. Khalil is a Prince of House Marid, the most powerful Demon house. Lucky for her he has a HUGE soft spot for young kids and once he comes across those 2 beautiful and defenseless babies he will promise to take care of them. And once a Djinn makes a promise he has no other option that to fulfill it.

And of course, once we get to know both characters better we see how non of them was what we thought. Our alluring Khalil wasn't an egocentric and uncaring demon, but a powerful and considerate man. And Grace isn't defenseless at all, she has a strong spirit and will do ANYTHING for those she loves.

Jasmin I know it's a character in Storm's Heart, but I still don't know who.


valee I hate all the suspense... Can't wait to find out.


message 3: by Aly is so frigging bored (last edited Aug 12, 2011 04:11PM) (new) - rated it 5 stars

Aly is so frigging bored She said somewhere... Let me try and find out...

I remember she said it's about that prince of the Genies Khallil or smth... The female I don't remember the name, but she was a character in book 2 and will be a character in 3...



EDITFrom a Q&A: "Oracle’s Moon is the first story with two main characters outside of the Wyr demesne, Grace and Khalil. The reader gets a first glimpse of Khalil in a cameo appearance in Storm’s Heart, and both Grace and Khalil are in Serpent’s Kiss. A teaser for their story is scheduled for the back of Serpent’s Kiss in October."


Jasmin oh, yes I remember now. Khalik is the Djin that helps Carling kidnap/transfer Tricks to the upper suits to talk to her. Grace is one of Carlin assistants.


Aly is so frigging bored Really? Wow :D That will be great!


Steph No, Grace is the new Oracle after her older sister is killed in a car crash. She helps Carling and Rune contact the weird creature Python in Serpent's Kiss, and also meets Khalil when he babysits her niece and nephew.


Aly is so frigging bored He doesn't babysit :)) He sits on them :D


valee I loved that part! Got me laughing so bad...


Mariya glad you loved it! ;))


valee I really did, I just couldn't put it down once I started it. It was not one of my favorite reads but a really, really GOOD one.
