What a great book to start my year of reading. Not only that Ms. Harrison did NOT DISAPPOINT, she EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS! I could not ask for anything more from this book.Oracle’s Moon can be a stand alone read as Ms. Harrison does well explaining the important point to the series. But because this is such a wonderful world to follow, I strongly suggest reading in chronological order.

This book takes off shortly after Serpent’s Kiss (Rune and Carling’s story). After helping Rune and Carling, Khalil had decided to stick around The Oracle’s (Grace) house for her protection. It was intrigue and concern at first sight. Khalil, Demonkind and Djinn Prince of the House Marid had promised that no harm was to come to Grace and her kids. And what a great promise INDEED as it leads to the long overdue HEA they both deserve.

Khalil had stayed due to his commitment at first but his obligation to protect Grace comes from his past. His daughter was taken from him in a vengeful act of his bitch of an exwife. After seeing Grace with her kids, he automatically was drawn to them all. It was really sweet to see an overbearing, overprotective, alpha male, powerful Dijin bow down for his new found love. This is hard for me to say as I am loyally in love with Dragos from Dragon Bound, But Khalil is just as Alpha as he is. I am now torn. *clutches fist in chest*

And as far as Grace, wow, she is one tough cookie. Her sister and brother-in-law were killed in a car accident which led her to the responsibility to take care of her niece and nephew. And worse, to become the Oracle which she dreaded. But man, how she manned up to all responsibilities. I bow down to any single parents, fictional or otherwise.

I love how our H/h had time to “hang out” and get to know each other, love was not rushed at all. And be forewarned, it includes several hot scenes. My fave and this maybe spoiler-ish but must be said. Khalil has magic that can enhance the use of his hands and mouth to be in different places at the same time. Confused? Oh, you will see what I mean when you get to that scene. *fanning self*

The secondary characters were also great to read about. Max and Chloe were a great part in molding Khalil into their lives. We get a glimpse of Rune and Carling. Rune is as funny as ever. Last and most intriguing are Dragos and Pia’s cameo. There’s definitely something brewing there. I sense war or a takeover.

Ms. Harrison is on a roll. As her writing gets better, her plot becomes more complex and intriguing. Bravo to job well done!!!

About Thea Harrison

I write paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and other stuff. I taught myself to read when I was four. That was around the time I tried to ride my tricycle to work. I wasn't sure where work was, but I knew it had to be interesting if people went there every day. Now I combine my love of books with work, and I don't have to ride my tricycle to get there. My Elder Races series began May, 2011. You can also find me on Twitter and Facebook!

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
