I think that the oracle's journal is a really good book to read if you're interested in fiction and all that magical world. I find that the story is really well written and the events are perfectly linked to each other which makes it easier to understand what is going on from the beginning.
Also, I agree that there are few words which are a bit difficult to understand for people who aren't English native speakers but this isn't really a bad thing, it really helps to improve their vocabulary and

Four teenagers live a very normal life until they find amulets in which the power of the sixteen gods are contained. They become The Guardians, are trained in magic and have to protect the earth against a queen, her knights, a whole variety of monsters and many demons.

My expectations for The Oracle's Journal were high and it didn’t disappoint. There are a few downsides but they are outweighted by the good parts of the book.
First of all, the worldbuilding in the book is huge. Dimitri didn’t just

Before getting into this, I'd like to thank BookTasters on twitter for this opportunity.

The Oracle's Journal is one that takes time to get through. It isn't going to be read in one sitting. There were multiple times when I had to go back and reread paragraphs and pages because of what happened. So much information is getting thrown at you that it is hard to keep track at some points. There are twists and turns from the moment the action starts till the last page.

While there are 50 chapters, the

The Oracle's Journal is a fantastic, sit-on-the-edge-of-your-seat book. All the events are so brilliantly linked to one another even when it seems like they might not be. The author has truly thought every plot point through and this is something I highly, highly appreciate. The writing is not perfect but I have to say that that is what makes it beautiful sometimes. You learn to love each character for their strengths and flaws alike. The magic is simply amazing and there is not enough that I ca ...more

A long read that took me some time to revisit some pages to make sure I got the correct context. But even though it is a long read I really enjoy the plot and so much twist that I want to read more.

A fantastic book to read! Absolutely loved it and I can't wait for the second one! The author made an excellent job balancing the description level with the fast-pace fighting parts. It is a long book, but worth every page and hour invested in it. I guarantee you won't want to stop reading for a second and will even devour the epilogues! ...more

The Oracle's Journal was a longer read than I expected. I must first appreciate the efforts that Dimitri has put into this wonderful piece.
It had all the fantasy elements knitted well but I felt the story execution is slightly a miss. I found few chapters a little distracting and the characters were too many to catch-up. I revisited some chapters to ensure that I actually got the complete context.

Coming to the story,
The plot and the overall storyline is great, kept me wanting to read more. Sp

I absolutely adored this book. It was really well-put and I adored the characters. I loved how they felt real, that they weren't a Mary-Sue or something that felt distant to the reader. I could actually live through them. It IS a long book, something I can have problems with, but this really made me invested and kept my attention to the last second. I actually also really liked the writing-style. It really helped with forming a beautiful world. I really enjoyed this book. I do need to say (just ...more

Let me start by saying that this is a really really long book. Most fantasy books are usually on the longer side of the spectrum so that's not such a big issue here. The biggest struggle for me was the pace of the book. It's way too long and way too slow. After a point it was actually painful to finish reading it.

The plot itself is interesting and has a lot going on. There are a lot of characters and you can see how they evolve with the story. The suspense around magical aspects builds over the

It was a massive read with elegant and intricate words perfectly describing the adversity in the story. I felt restive at first due to suspense cause in the middle. After all, it was a good read. I always thought a good book is with a strong adversity and twisted plots. When I read Oracle's journal, it proved to be a kind of book where you get to fantasize the different world and come across the things I love like portal, magic and adventure.
