Review is posted on my blog Ja čitam, a ti?
as a part of blog tour for TWCS.
I've read first book in The Gateway Chronicles two moths ago - The Six took me by suprise. I felt like a child again. And then TWCS asked me if I wanted to review second book in the series. My answer - "YES!" Cindy, you rock!:)
The Oracle is set a year after everything that happened in the the first novel. It did started a bit slow, although that first scene with Darcy's dream was really good start. I don't want to spoil this book too much for you, so I will not tell anything about the plot - and what amazing plot it is. If you love books about magic, summer trips and everything Narnia alike - this is right choice for you.
But I have to put one character on the first place - Yahto Veli. Actually, from all of the supernatural creatures in K.B. Hoyle's books, narks are the most intriguing. Being one person by the day and completely other by the night... Oh, my wickedness! And Darcy... She might be fourteen but she is kick-ass heroine, my favorite kind.
I'm well known by my girl crushes issues, but I can't help myself - some girls are that good. K. B. Hoyle is that good! Why I like her? (Other than because of her books, of course.) She is mother of three little boys, she's a teacher and that's the job that follows you home even when you sleep - trust me, I know! But this woman still menages to finish her writing and I've read somewhere that there will be six books in The Gateway Chronicles.
