Oracle's Moon - Book Review by Voodoo Bride

Oracle's Moon (Elder Races #4)
by Thea Harrison

What is it about:
When Grace Andreas's sister, Petra, and her husband are both killed, Grace inherits the Power and responsibilities of the Oracle of Louisville, as well as her sister's two young children--neither of which she is prepared for. Then Khalil, Demonkind and Djinn Prince of House Marid, decides to make himself a part of the household both as guardian and counterpoint to Grace's impudence towards the Elder Races.

What did Voodoo Bride think of it:
I had some misgivings about this book I will confess.

I really enjoyed the first three books in this series and I was intrigued by Khalil from the first time he made an appearance, no problems there. It was the two children I worried about.

I usually don't like romances where there's kids involved. Often they take away from the romantic tension.

I shouldn't have feared though. Harrison knows exactly what she's doing and managed to balance the family stuff and the romance in a way that had me totally engrossed in both the romance and the relationship Khalil forges with the children.

I really loved Khalil: he's sexy, dangerous, all powerful and still caring and human when it counts. Grace was a bit too hard on him at times in my opinion, but all in all the romance between them was very satisfying to read.

Although this story is mostly a story about family and love Harrison also managed to put in a suspenseful action storyline that had me invested as well.

So in the end I enjoyed this book much more than I expected and while 'Storm's Heart' is still my favorite book in this series, 'Oracle's Moon' is an unexpected second.

Why should you read it:
It's a fun paranormal romance with a sexy Djinn

Great review, and I really agree with you. I really don't understand why people love the first book best, and think the rest is less good. I think the series get better with each book.
