At first I was a little apprehensive that the series was going to be simplistic and juvenille, but how wrong I was. Eye of the Oracle was very well written with good character development and an absolutely vast scope. The reader has a rich voice which really added a lot of feeling to the book. My only issue is that the ending was extremely compressed which felt forced (I think it is actually expanded on in the rest of the series). Overall a very worthwhile read, I can't wait for the rest of the series.
