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.
Grace Andreas’s world came crashing down around her when Petra and Niko, her sister and brother - in - law, died in a car accident, the same accident that she some how survived but has been left with an injury that will never fully heal. She has inherited the Oracle’s Power, something she never wanted, is now responsible for the care of her niece and nephew and not only has to figure out a way to survive it all on her own but has to figure out how to deal with a Djinn who has bonded himself to her little family. Khalil is a centuries old Djinn who finds himself inexplicably drawn to Grace, the human witch with the Oracle’s power, and can’t figure out why since from the moment they met they clashed. But the more time Khalil spends with Grace and her small family, the more he finds that fate has led him here for a reason.
I had mixed feelings about starting this book. The whole WTF issue from Serpent’s Kiss was still fresh in my mind and I didn’t know if I was up for another one, but finding out that Oracle’s Moon was about Grace and Khalil, whose brief interaction towards the end of Serpent’s Kiss intrigued me, I forged ahead and I absolutely ADORED this book. It doesn’t have the amount of action as the first three, but that didn’t bother me in the least because I thoroughly enjoyed watching Grace navigate her new life as the Oracle, mother to her niece and nephew, Chloe and Max who are absolutely adorable and help give the story more depth and many humorous moments, as well as her growing relationship with Khalil, who starts out as the Bane of her Existence. She epitomized grace under pressure while dealing with everything that had been thrown at her and I couldn’t help but admire her. Khalil was a bit overbearing, but he was only reacting to what he knew, which was a lot, but as he finally gets a better understanding of all that Grace is facing, he becomes not only the childrens protect, but Grace’s. What I loved about Grace and Khalil was that while they both grew and compromised with each other, they didn’t change who they were. They were both still strong and opinionated beings that had found a and once they both accepted it a whole new world opened up to them both.
I liked the pace of the book and really enjoyed learning about what made Djinn’s tick. How important honor and balance are to them as well as seeing how powerful they really are. And can I just say that the Djinn’s form of sex is hot. The history of the Oracle’s Power was very well thought out and I loved how Grace made it her own. This book may not have as much action or politics as the first three do, but it has just as much heart and is filled with many fun and poignant moments.
