His books are great for young adults! Worth the read!
I read Tersias in hopes that several questions left unanswered in Wormwood would be settled. Unfortunately, at least for those questions, Tersias the Oracle is almost completely its own book. It starts near the end of Wormwood, with the comet crashing into the moon, therefore tying it in with its prequel, but the book continues on its own way for the next 250 some odd pages. I was rather disappointed when Abram Rickards (Raphael the angel) didn't show up, but surprisingly another very, very, very minor character from Wormwood (Campion the human bear. He smashed a door once and that's all) did come back with a larger part. All in all, Tersias is a good read, but realise that it has little in common with its predecessors.
I really enjoyed reading this book, but not as much as I enjoyed Shadowmancer and Wormwood. The characters were believable, the villains were frightening, and the plot was great. But after reading the other two, I couldn't enjoy this as much--in part because I waited the entire book for Raphael to show up, and he never did. Still, I do recommend this book.
