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.

I totally loved this book! Sophie does a wonderful job with the narrations and the story is terrific. I so enjoyed Dragon Bound but was very disappointing with Thea's next 2 books then she did this one and it's super. Takes place right after Serpent's Kiss
I loved the characters! I can see the attraction in both directions and the growth and learning of each. I would absolutely recommend this - I've listened to it several times and enjoy it each time.
The First and fourth book in this series are, in my opinion, the best. I have enjoyed all the books and love Sophie's voice.
Another great story in the Elder Races Series. If you liked the last three books, you won't be disapointed. In my opinion, body sex is still better than mind sex but hey, whos complaining as long as its good, right? :)
I'm a relationship coach (QueenBeesCoaching), survived raising my children and have a loving relationship. Life is good!
Don't get me wrong. I like sex! Really! But I do find that reading a book in my hand is very different than listening to a book. When I'm listening to it, I find myself getting irritated with the long sex scenes, where she's so perfect and he's all that and more.. I keep finding myself fast forwarding through them. Which was a bit dangerous once when driving, so I rapidly returned my focus to the road and not on the iPad screen. The darn screen had turned off, so I couldn't just push forward on the Audible app... anyway, back to the review.
This story was enjoyable and kept me well entertained. But when she kept talking about 'saving her niece from the power', that just seemed like an excuse to take it for herself. Yeah, she was the good person in the story, but still, it just caught my attention.
I did like how the demon 'thinned his essence and drifted down' in an effort to avoid the wards on the bad guys house. The way Thea Harrison's mind works is really interesting in how she can picture all the different skills and abilities. Bringing the Oracle in as a person to potentially help heal demons was also an interesting twist to the story - don't worry, I'm not giving much away in that statement.
The stories are good and great escapism, but not with kids in listening distance during the sex scenes.
Books are better than TV -- Except for Outlander. That rocks!
I love this series, but book 4 is my favorite paranormal romance of all time. I won't give anything away. Just know that this book is NOT to be missed!
I read so I can write
I really enjoyed the first two books in this series and found this one a little disappointing. Although the story refers to things that happened in the first books, it does not actually include any of those important characters in this story. That and too much sex in a weak story ruined it for me.
