Publisher's Summary

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.

Love, Love, Love

I think this book and book #1 are my favorite in this series. I liked this book for many reasons. I like the fact that the characters were likeable and interesting. Another thing that I enjoyed a lot was that the author gave you glimpses on the direction she is going to take the series. Through out the whole story their were hints of possible future book. Which involved my mind even more.

Their were a lot of unanswered question that will be answered in other books in series. If you are not patience to wait for the answers...this might not be the book for you. I don't think this book could be taken as a stand a lone. So I recommend that you start in the beginning.

They are sexy men...(of course there is its Thea Harrison Book). There is a lot Fantasy taken in different point view. ( I have read other books with Djinn and they were never portrayed like this. They are always unfeeling spirit creatures with no forms. Not at all lip biting sexy Kid loving males.)

I also love the female heroine struggles with being Oracle. The author give the character just enough whin but she did not make her a whinier. Some author over do in that area.

I hope you enjoy and agree :)

- Just so you know "I am Who I am; and you are Who you are...so lets leave it at that."

Enjoyed every moment

I was waiting for this book to come out - I enjoyed every minute of it.

Narrator - Wonderful job as always. Sophie Eastlake is one of those narrators that I will always enjoy listening to. She does an amazing job.

Story - I still enjoy Dragon Bound the most. Oracle's Moon is the second best in this series. Followed by Storm's Heart and than Serpent's Kiss.

The story starts directly after the meeting with the Oracle in Serpent's Kiss. I mean the morning after and goes from there. There are a lot of things going on this book and oddly enough I think the book should have been longer, flushed out a bit more in certain areas. The book is witty, the chars both interesting and well thought out. We see more about why both Grace and Khalil are the way they are. We learn a bit more about factions in the world. And a bit more about the root of the Oracle's power.

The counterpoint of Grace and Khalil is interesting and Thea does a great job showing each of them coming to terms with the attraction, their lives, etc.

Now, keep in mind I really enjoyed this book and plan to relisten to it this weekend when reading the following.

I only gave the story 4 stars because I think Thea Harrison has some great ideas for some epic fantasy in here but she is working perhaps against the story in trying to keep these in the fantasy romance realm. I would be very interested in seeing more, more about these different groups, their goals, their reasons, etc. I want to say more about certain parts of the book but don't wish to spoil things either. There are a couple places in the story where if felt like there should have been more. What was there was enough for a simple romance fantasy, but if there had been more,more.. just more! (yea maybe I"m just becoming more demanding in my reads/listens)
