Grace Andreas comes from a long line of Oracles, women descended from the original Oracle of Delphi, but she never expected to have the Power fall to her. After all, Grace's sister, Petra, was the one who inherited it from their Grandmother. But when Petra and her husband are killed in an accident that left Grace badly injured, the Power and obligations of the Oracle are not the only burdens that fall on her doorstep, as Grace is given guardianship of Petra's two small children.

Khalil is a Djinn Prince of the House of Marid -- the oldest and most powerful of Djinn Houses. In repayment of a debt owed to the powerful vampiress, Carling, Khalil soon comes face to face with the new Oracle, and is completely taken aback by her lack of deference towards beings of great Power.

Overwhelmed by grief, debt, and the sudden and unexpected role of parenthood, Grace is struggling to balance family life with her newly acquired burden of Power. The last thing she needs, or wants, is a cocky Djinn meddling in her affairs.

But when it becomes apparent that Grace and the children are in danger, it isn't long before it becomes apparent that Khalil is exactly the sort of protector that her family needs -- and perhaps even the type of man that she wants...

I've had a bit of a crush on Khalil ever since he first appeared in the last book, Serpent's Kiss, and had been desperately hoping that he and Grace would get a book together. Sexy, incredibly powerful, a bit of a mystery (especially since he's the first "non-wyr" hero to feature in the series), he's also got the whole "tortured hero" thing in regards to his daughter.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Grace Andreas has never wanted to get mixed up with the happenings or creatures of the Elder Races. When her older sister is killed, Grace not only is given the responsibility of taking care of her two small children but also the Power that has now made her the Oracle. But Grace has received some unexpected, and unwanted, help from a Djinn. Khalil is one of the most powerful beings of the Demonkind and he has made it his business to protect the children and Grace from an unknown threat that's after her whether she likes the idea or not.

I found Grace to be a fantastic heroine. Despite being young herself and suffering from physical pain that she received in the car crashed that killed her sister, Grace treats Chloe and Max like they're her own. Even with her financial problems, she's able to make ends meet while trying to figure out how to also be the Oracle she's expected to be. There's a lot of unwanted responsibilities placed on her shoulders and I think a lesser person would have crumbled under the pressure. I loved that she was resourceful and strong and I was impressed that despite how independent she is, she knew when it was time to accept help from Khalil.

Khalil has no secret agenda when it comes to Grace and the kids. He has a fondness for children and just wants to make sure they're safe. He's somewhat taken back that Grace does not willingly accept his assistance right away and learns even with someone as powerful as himself, he needs to follow rules and negotiate if there's something he doesn't like. Khalil is everything there is to like in a hero. Handsome, strong, honorable and has a presence that comes off of the pages and like Grace, he knew when it was time to stand his ground and when it was time to be flexible. Nothing not to like about the male.

Absolutely my favorite of the series so far. There was no "OMG, your my mate" in this one, which I appreciated. Though the courtship was fast between them, I got more of a sense of "I love you" between them, not just a need to claim their mate. It developed and their eyes were opened to each other and their affection grew along with the desire.

I really loved the parts where Khalil called in all the favors of the other Djinn to do some rather crazy stuff for him. And his gentleness with the kids was amazing. He's a great father for them! He's also probably my favorite guy so far in the series, too.

I also see that this book is probably the turning point of the series as a whole with the big revelation that is made in it and I also see that there will probably be more concerning Grace and Khalil - which I seriously look forward to! I can't wait for the next book to find out where this awesome series goes! November needs to get here already so I can get my hands on "Lord's Fall"!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Fourth in the Elder Races paranormal romance series. This one only peripherally involves Dragos Cuelebre. The couple focus is on Grace Andreas, the Oracle, and Prince Khalil, a Djinn of the House Marid. This particular story is based in Louisville.

My Take
In terms of a deserving person getting what they deserve, this story does abound in them. However, there were too many quirks to make this as enjoyable as the earlier stories (the first one, Dragon Bound (Elder Races, #1), still holds the record for best and most interesting). Harrison's obsession with the Oracle's moon would have been of greater interest if we'd ever learned just why it was so important. Instead, there are tiny hints and implications and my best guess is that it's sort of like a full moon for shifters. At one point, Harrison says it's a Powerful time for prophecies. Anybody got any better ideas??

I can't believe the witches in Louisville are so self-centered and short-sighted! I do not blame Grace for her later actions one tiny bit. Louisville doesn't deserve her.

Ohhh, I just love how Khalil thinks of the kids as baby birds. Trusting, singing, chirping. How he reconsiders the Djinn belief about tiny human
lives.

And this is just too romantic...
"I started counting time for you.
I want to change who I am for you. ...
I did not know I needed grace until I met you"

It was interesting how Harrison created the interaction between Grace and Khalil. On his side, life is all about the bargain and keeping one's word and he's not one bit torn about the advantages Grace is giving him with her lack of bargaining skills.
