As a second daughter, Grace Andreas never had to worry about the intrigues of the Elder Races. But when her sister, Petra, and Petra’s 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.
Yet, she is not alone. Khalil, Demonkind and Djinn prince of House Marid – driven by his genuine caring for the children – has decided to make himself a part of the household both as their guardian and as an exasperating counterpoint to Grace’s impudence toward the Elder Races.
But when an attempt is made on Grace’s life, she realizes that Khalil is the only one who can protect her – and offer her more than a mortal man…
I loved Grace in this book. She is a very strong individual. Even though she knew there was a possibility of her becoming the Oracle she definitely didn't expect it since her older sister wasn't much older that her and inherited those powers. But when her sister died become the Oracle she did and she also gladly took on the responsibility of raising her young niece and nephew without much support financial or otherwise. And when Khalil enters her live she is not overly impressed with him nor is he with her. But as these get to know each other and Khalil especially goes about figuring out how to interact with humans especially little manipulative ones like Grace's niece they finally come to an understanding. I love the way Khalil gets Grace the financial wherewithal to support herself and the kiddos that she needs all the while proving that she can depend on him.. what we learned about the Oracle's powers in the last book helps us understand how Grace takes the Oracle's power in a wholly different way and I suspect this will be useful to the Elder Races in the coming books more than we can tell right now. Her special twist on those powers was a little convenient to the story but loved it non the less. At least she didn't go around saying I see dead people lol.
I bought this book for my personal enjoyment and I give it a 4.5 stars. If you've not read this series what are you waiting on run to the nearest book store. These books are one the best series I discovered last year.
