    One of the very best things about Thea Harrison’s Novels

    One of the very best things about Thea Harrison’s Novels of the Elder Races Series is the fact that each book is totally and completely different. Dragon Bound was a story of action and discovery. Pia and Cuelebre were combustible.. High octave. Storm’s heart was about Revenge and political intrigue. Tricks and Tiago had known each other for ages and yet barely knew each other. Serpent’s Kiss was about survival and redemption. The characters were at first Campy and then slowly evolved into individuals that pulled at you. But Oracle’s Moon... Yes Oracle’s Moon was a love story...

    We first met Khalil in Serpent’s Kiss.. He was Djinn and owed Carling a favor. He was intriguing and yet still lacking form. We met him again in Serpent’s Kiss a bit more explosive... but in Oracle’s Moon, we meet the man, well the Djinn. He is opinionated, arrogant, obnoxious and protective. He is sure he knows what is best. He made a promise to protect Grace’s niece and nephew.. two small innocent children. A Prince in the House of Marid, one of the most powerful Djinn he feels dealing with humans is beneath him. And yet slowly he discovers that Grace there is much more to Grace than he first realized.

    Grace Andreas, the current Oracle of Delphi, albeit a reluctant one just has too much on her plate. She is the sole provider for her niece and nephew left orphaned in the same accident that almost took Grace’s life. At 23, she is worn out from trying to make ends meet in a world that no longer appreciates the Oracles. When she discovers that Khalil has taken an interest in her children she attempts to ban him from the house. *grins* That doesn’t work so well. He leaves but Grace discovers that she can feel his connection even when he isn’t there. She knows he left something behind. Grace, having spent an entire life making what she calls poor choices decided to twist the tiger’s tail.

    Together Kahlil and Grace traverse a road of discovery.. he learns how to feel, how to truly love and she learns that there is someone that she can depend upon, lean upon and grow with. While the entire secondary storyline helps the book flow, it is the connection between Grace and Kahlil that makes this book work. Once boiled down to it, this book truly is character driven. The romance between Kahlil and Grace is what speaks to the reader. They connect with us. You feel the depth of their emotions and their concerns for each other. You see what a person in love is willing to do for the ones they love and you rejoice in it. While it is understood that both characters are powerful entities you almost forget that you discover that it is their united strength that truly matters.

    Ms Harrison snuck an honest to goodness romance in her PNR story. It is funny because just the other day I was part of a Twitter conversation with Ms Harrison and several others about crossing genres.. and here she is showing me exactly what she meant. If you are expecting a fantasy novel, a PNR delight you will be surprised.. Because it is all of that, Oracle’s Moon is so much more.

    I am not sure that this is my favorite book in the series.. but I do know that I like the softer, gentler flow at least for this book. Read it, enjoy it and tell me what you think
