The Oracle Series By Alayna Williams

This was one of the Authors we had during Authors Month in May. Alayna Williams. As A thank you for working with her I recieved a signed set of The Oracle Series. I thought I might review BOTH of them since I have not done so already.

Dark Oracle (Oracle #1)
by Alayna Williams

As a criminal profiler, Tara used science and her intuitive skill at Tarot card divination to track down the dangerous and depraved, including the serial killer who left her scarred from head to toe. Since that savage attack, Tara has been a recluse. But now an ancient secret society known as Delphi’s Daughters has asked for her help in locating missing scientist Lowell Magnusson. And Tara, armed with her Tarot deck, her .38, and a stack of misgivings, agrees to try.

Tara immediately senses there is far more at stake than one man’s life. At his government lab in the New Mexico desert, Magnusson had developed groundbreaking technology with terrifying potential. Working alongside the brusque but charismatic agent Harry Li, Tara discovers that Magnusson’s daughter, Cassie, has knowledge that makes her a target too. The more Tara sees into the future, the more there is to fear. She knows she has to protect Cassie. But there may be no way to protect herself—from the enemies circling around her, or from the long-buried powers stirring to life within. . . .

My Review:

This book is a total recommend! I loved it! The character were very well built, with a very strong female protagonist and allows character growth. The plot and world in which the story was written was brilliantly done. the pace was very pleasing. the only thing I wish there was more of was romance. But over all this is a great start to the series!
My Rating 4 Stars!

Rogue Oracle (Oracle #2)
by Alayna Williams


Tara Sheridan is the best criminal profiler around—and the most unconventional. Trained as a forensic psychologist, Tara also specializes in Tarot card reading. But she doesn’t need her divination skills to realize that the new assignment from her friend and sometime lover, Agent Harry Li, is a dangerous proposition in every way.

Former Cold War operatives, all linked to a top-secret operation tracking the disposal of nuclear weapons in Russia, are disappearing. There are no bodies, and no clues to their whereabouts. Harry suspects a conspiracy to sell arms to the highest bidder. The cards—and Tara’s increasingly ominous dreams—suggest something darker. Even as Tara sorts through her feelings for Harry and her fractured relationship with the mysterious order known as Delphi’s Daughters, a killer is growing more ruthless by the day. And a nightmare that began decades ago in Chernobyl will reach a terrifying endgame that not even Tara could have foreseen. . .

My Review:

A great read. I found it very thrilling, suspenseful and a little creepy. I loved the way this book was set up as a stand alone, also the amount of twist and turns thrown into it. I found this book to well built in every part. I loved the characters, the storyline, and the world building. The pace moved very well through this. Overall a total recommend! I did give it this rating be cause I felt a few chapters did get a little side tracked.

My Rating 4 stars!
