An Epic Conclusion

Oracle's Legacy: Dawn of Illumination
R. B. Holbrook
Lulu.com (2010),
Paperback, 458 pages
Rated 4 stars of 5 possible


Oracle's Legacy: Dawn of Illumination is the thrilling conclusion to the author's debut series, which began with Oracle's Legacy: Children of Sun. Since the Oracle's Legacy series is one massive story broken up into three books, the best way to read the series is to begin with Oracle's Legacy: Children of Sun and read the books in order. In this way, the reader does not miss character background or important story issues by starting in the middle or at the end.

As with Shadows of Fate, this third volume builds on the story thus far, beginning where the previous volume ended. Whether you borrow or buy these books, try to get them all at once, so you can rapidly move from one to the next without much delay. When you do this, you will get the most seamless transition from one book to the next, and the story will have a greater impact. 

Taken as one long epic, Oracle's Legacy is a fascinating story... however, if you like short stories or even average-length novels, you probably won't like this, because the three books are one large story, of which the three parts should be read in sequence, and for best effect should be read together, as opposed to reading one book and then something else before continuing with the saga.

Recommended to adults who love epic fantasy and science fiction. Oracle's Legacy: Dawn of Illumination was provided to me free by the author in exchange for this review. This review will be posted on LibraryThing, Dragon Views, Amazon.com and wherever else deemed appropriate by this reviewer.

Host Bio
Castle Lake

Well, let's face it folks... Lady Dragoness is a forum addict. She can be found daily at one of her own forums, the one and only Tube Trading Post, and at a friend's forum, YABooks Central, both on Delphi Forums. The Dragoness is also a rookie webmaster and an amateur photographer as well as a wannabe graphic artist whose friends encourage her to continue learning new things as well as expanding her knowledge of things she already knows a little something about.


She likes reading science fiction and fantasy best, but has been known to read most anything she gets her hands ...er... claws... on.  A few of her favorite authors, in no particular order: Anne McCaffrey, Robert Heinlein, Douglas Adams, Gloria Hartman, and Piers Anthony.


How to sum up the Dragoness in a few words?  I am a dragon at heart and by temperment... but I am a friendly dragon.
