Review: The Elder Races Series Book 4 & 5 by Thea Harrison

This is my series review for books 4 & 5 of The Elder Races by Thea Harrison!  So glad to finally catch up!  I love this world.

Review: The Elder Races Series Book 4 & 5 by Thea HarrisonOracle’s Moon by Thea Harrison

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Read for Fun (Paperbook)
Overall Rating: 4.00
Character Rating: 4.25
Story Rating: 3.75

First thought when finished: Not my favorite in the series but still pretty darn entertaining!

Story Talk

“Screw pretty. I’d rather be strong. Pretty fades over time. Strength gets you through the bad shit.”― Thea Harrison, Oracle’s Moon

I went back and forth on how I felt about this book the entire time I was reading it. I felt that the journey of the Oracle was great but the romance didn’t catch with me till half way through. I do like that this was a strong woman becoming stronger as she accepted her new place in life. This was a story of gumption, perseverance, and love of family. In other words, I still recommend Oracle’s Moon even it wasn’t my favorite in the series.

Character Talk

“I did not know I needed grace until I met you.”― Thea Harrison, Oracle’s Moon

Even though I didn’t fall in love with the romance till halfway through–I did like both leads very much. I thought Grace was the woman I always hope to be. She was willing to do whatever it took to take care of her niece/nephew, fulfill her family obligations, and deal with her injuries from a family tragedy. She just was the epitome of a strong woman. I thought Khalil was a wonderful protector and how he was with the kids melted my heart. When I finally started falling in love with their love story, I was really happy with the way it went.

Final Thought: I loved the end of the book Khalil made me giggle!

Review: The Elder Races Series Book 4 & 5 by Thea HarrisonLord’s Fall by Thea Harrison

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Read for fun (Paperbook)
Overall Rating: 4.50
Story Rating: 4.25
Character Rating: 4.75

First Thought When Finished: As much as I love Dragos and Pia can I just say that it was Eva and Pia that totally cracked me up in Lord’s Fall! Girl Power!

Story Talk

“Graydon—” His gold eyes danced suddenly. “You know what a big motherfucker Graydon is. He turned into a gryphon, and then he just sat down and looked at his opponent, who forfeited. It was the fastest bout of the day.”― Thea Harrison, Lord’s Fall

Lord’s Fall basically sent Pia and Dragos on two different quests and I think proved how much they needed each other for balance. I love revisiting old couples especially when we are going for the big HEA. I think Pia/Dragos story needed to be told and I enjoyed it. I loved that most of the characters from the series so far were in this edition and I think it brought us full circle. I am really excited to see where the story goes from here. For fans of the series, this kind of felt like a love letter to all of us.

Character Talk

“She was his beacon to what others called decency, not because she told him how to act but because she made him want to try.”― Thea Harrison, Lord’s Fall

I could wax poetic about Thea’s characters but I will sum it up this way: They Rock! Oh and I still claim Graydon! 🙂

Final Thought: I am glad I caught up with the series and can’t wait to see where it goes from here!

  1. I’m going to work hard this year to get caught up on all the UF that is sitting on my shelves. It always makes me so happy. Yes Thea! I’m gunning for you.

  2. LOVELOVELOVE this series. LOVE! Eva and Pia were hilarious in this story — girl power is right! Can’t wait for the next book!

  3. Oracle’s Moon (along with Dragon Bound) is one of my total comfort reads. I’m happy you ended up liking it even if the beginning wasn’t quite up to snuff for you. I just love how Grace blossoms in it. From weary and struggling to make it through every day to a strong, confident woman. Added bonus, Khalil appears to be very good with his hands. *waggles brows*

    Oh, heck, I love this whole series. Now I want to get back to my reread of it.

    • Oh I loved Grace! She is probably one of my favorite female leads in the series. I had a hard time with Khalil but I think I would like him more on the reread. I didn’t read the last chapter before beginning the book(I normally do in romance) and I think that just threw me off LOL

      That being said—holy smoking smexy times. Vapor hands–who knew? 🙂

  4. I wanted more about Peanut in Lord’s Fall. I liked the book but that ending was too rushed for me. I’m holding our hope that they’ll get a novella or something in the future
