Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Harrison’s fourth Elder Races paranormal (after Serpent’s Kiss) is set in an intriguing world where human society knowingly intermixes, sometimes uncomfortably, with seven otherworldly groups. At age 23, college student Grace Andreas inherits the Power of the Oracle upon the death of her sister, Petra. She also gets custody of Petra’s two children, four-year old Chloe and nine-month-old Max, and a pile of debt. Dealing with an all-powerful djinn is low on her list of priorities, but Grace has to admit she could use the protection offered by Khalil, Djinn Prince of House Marid, after a deadly argument erupts on her land. Besides, who wouldn’t want a babysitter who can shape-shift into the world’s most tolerant doggie-cat? Grace’s human limitations are pushed to the edge as she learns to wield her new powers. Series fans and new readers alike will cheer her on. Agent: Amy Boggs, Donald Maass Literary Agency. (Mar.)

    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

    Thea Delivers...Again!

    Oracle's Moon was released today. I took a vacation day to read it, and it was well worth it. Thea writes some of my favorite books and this one is no exception. She has a unique talent for developing likeable characters and infusing her books with heart, intelligence, creativity, and sizzle. Thank you, Thea, for the wonderful company your books give to hot chocolate and a cozy fleece blanket.

    Loved it!

    This whole series is terrific. Good characters and storylines. For people new to this series, you can pick up any title and the storyline and main characters stand on their own. For people who follow the series, it is wonderful how the titles unfold as though it is one long story. It was especially fun to get to know about both Oracles and the Djinn in this title.

    Loved how the relationship unfolded

    Loved this story! The development of the relationship was far more realistic than a lot of romance novels. It developed slowly and didn't hint to any attraction until after they became friends. Loved how the plot unfolded. Liked the characters and everything else about the book. Definitely one of my favorites.

    Its an okay read...

    This one is my least favorite of the Edler series. I'm not really sure why it I think it was the characters that did not appeal to me. I normally like the Elder series more this one just missed for me.

    Let me begin by saying, WOW! Thea Harrison does it again. Put a warning label on this bad boy because you will not want to put this book down. What a great read. Harrison has created such vivid and strong characters, not just this book, but for the entire series.

    The story continues in the Elder Races with Grace and Khalil. We met these two characters in ‘Elder Races Series #3 – Serpent’s Kiss. Grace is the newly appointed Oracle of Louisville. She did not come by this appointment willingly. Her sister, Petra, was the current Oracle until her and her husband’s untimely death in a gruesome car crash. Grace was also involved in the crash but by some miracle survived. With the passing of Petra, Grace also inherits the guardianship of her niece and nephew, four year old Chloe and nine month old Max. With the added stress of mounting hospital bills and a crumbling house, Grace is having a hard time making ends meet.

    Khalil is an arrogant Djinn Prince who has taken it upon himself to protect children Chloe and Max. He feels it is necessary to watch the children, since he believes Grace isn’t doing that great of a job. Grace and Khalil fight and bump heads; she even calls him “the bane of her existence”. Grace soon realizes maybe being “the bane of her existence” isn’t such a bad thing after all. Can their new found bond last through the Oracles Moon, with demands for Grace’s help coming from all Elder Races and a threat to her family coming from someone she thought loyal? You will have to read and find out.

    Grace was the bomb I loved that she had a potty mouth and an edge about her that despite her injury let folks know immediately... SHE WAS NOT TO BE MESSED WITH. In this entire series Khalil and the Dragon are my FAVES! Sooo good!

    Not so great!

    Thea Harrison still writes a good story, but this book, #4 in the Elder Races series, just isn't near as good as the first three. I would rate each of the first three book with a solid 5 stars. This one just didn't have the punch that the others did, but still a decent book.
