Ended too soon!
The visit to Rune and Carling and Rune's dating advice......all the moments with Max and Chloe.
Sophie Eastlake has such a comfortable rhythm in her beautiful voice. Thea Harrison's fantastic characters become even more vivid as I listen to Sophie's narration of the books in this series. Terrific narrator!
Grace's journey as she evolves into the "True Oracle" and her enlightenment of her personal magical abilities is very compelling. I think she and Pia are my favorite kick-ass Elder Races heroines.
The story line is weak. Grace and Khalil character weak.
the only one I liked was dragon bound. After this book I will give up on this author.
The narrator in Dragon bound was good but in this one sucked pretty bad
Grace and Khalil
Please keep the story short and action pack with teasing sexy bits and one errotic action
Love to read and I am really enjoying audible. Fantasy and sci fi are my faves but I also enjoy period novels and historical fiction.
I was hesitant to read this one but it was my fave of the series I loved it!!
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
Oh so good.....I haven't listened to a bad Elder Races. Again this couple comes a very close second to Pia and Dragos and I would love to know more. The story, a little confusing at times so listen closely but very interesting and suspenseful. This is the first Gin and Oracle I have encountered and their story and talents are magical. I love Sophie in this series and would recognize every character she has performed!
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
Yes, this author is one of the top 10 in my list
When the house blew up.
I can't get over how she flexes her voice to give the characters different bodies.
I'm semi-retired at 67 and a recent Cancer survivor.
If I could give 10 stars to this book, I would. Of all The Elder Race books I’ve listened to so far, this one has my heart. AND I have loved all of them. I cannot say enough about the mind, brain, creative energy, unfathomable imagination and ability to turn a phrase that thrives in Thea Harrison. Oracle’s Moon may just be her best work (well, that I’ve read so far). The characters of Grace and Khalil are sheer perfection…Grace, an Oracle ‘don’t wannabe but hastobe’, is a steel magnolia from KY who by virtue of tragedy becomes the single parent of two orphaned kids as well as the recipient of powers she doesn’t particularly want. She struggles to make ends meet, to love and provide for her sister’s kids, and to adapt herself to a ‘gift’ that is both challenging and enormously draining.
Khalil, Djinn of great power and mystery, has no idea what he’s in for when he encounters Grace. He cannot understand her humanity as he is far from human and immortal. He IS however, enchanted with the kids, having lost his own daughter to a vile mother many years prior. And by lost, we mean changed from a powerful force for good to a damaged and permanently impaired being who needs to be kept away from the world.
As usual, there are reviews that give much better detail of the story and plotline…I give visceral reactivity and knee-jerk. This is the story of the Djinn and the Oracle—how they met, learned from each other, and fell in love. THAT story is priceless…Khalil’s efforts to control Grace, his desire to help her, his adaptation to human ‘skin’, his bumbling attempts to ‘date’ (the conversation between Rune and Khalil in which Rune gives Khalil dating advice is PRICELESS), his trips to the moon, his ability to ‘achieve pancakes’, his thoughts of falling into flesh (shades of City of Angels here), his growing respect for Grace, his protectiveness of her and need to be in her life, and ultimately, the return of Phaedra (Khalil’s daughter) and her triumph over the darkness (with Grace’s help) are all unrelentingly beautiful, funny, powerful, touching and downright amazing. Damn, I want a Djinn of my very own.
As for the performance of Sophie Eastlake, she is flawless. She captures Grace’s strength, her accent (beautifully done when SO MANY FAIL at being southern), her passion, her misgivings about ‘Oracleness’ AND Khalil and her strength…in short, when you listen to her be Grace…she IS Grace. And then she turns right around and does the SAME THING being Khalil…his arrogance, his need to control, his passion for the kids and for Grace, his bumbling efforts at understanding how to be in a relationship, his humor, his sensuality and his capacity for caring are all part of her depiction of Khalil.
I cannot erupt enough superlatives about how I felt about this book but I hope I’ve tried. It is nothing short of SPECTACULAR. Thanks, Teddy and thanks, Sophie and thank, audible.com.
This is book 4 in the series and it is great, but you should read the first 3 books in the series before you read this one. The story was so much better knowing the background of the characters. Thea Harrison does a great job linking her stories and the characters, so I'm hooked on this series! Thea also makes each male lead character in the series hot, interesting and unique. You will never feel bored or that the story line is "cookie cutter."
In this book, Khalil, a Demonkind Gin, and Grace, the Oracle, are both really good, kind, strong and interesting characters. The passion was hot! The book has some twists, and the ending is not what I expected (which was great). Thea leaves the story a bit open-ended, so we will see these characters again in another story. I can't wait to read the next book!
The narrator, Sophie Eastlake, is awesome!
A very clear description that allowee an easy grasp of those fantastic people and powers that I had not heard about before
it made me giggle out loud and smmile a lot
It was great
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I actually avoided this book. I cannot believe I did...but yes...I really did. Once I got to this book in the series I skipped it. I thought it would be horrible b/c of Khalil being a Djinn. I mean throughout the series Khalil has been sooo anal. But WOW. Grace is so down to earth that it isn't funny. She reminds me of truly southern woman. Khalil is explain so much better in this book, so are the Djinn. Khalil and Grace story is soo good, I keep re listening.
