Ask The Oracle by JJ Black

This is book one in the Revelations series

When you absolutely have to know…

Grayson Muir is a know it all. No, seriously…he really does know it all. The strength of his abilities has him rumored to be the most powerful Oracle in the world. Gray couldn’t care less. All his life, Gray has played by his own rules. Whether through his own, private, clients or his work with the police, his only goal is to use his gift to help as many people and paras as he can. With abilities like Gray’s, he doesn’t have time for any distractions.

Unfortunately, that is exactly what he gets when Andreo Demos, a six hundred year old lust demon, pays him an unexpected visit. Dreo has been sent by the Demon Counsel with an appeal for assistance. The Lord of the Underworld has been murdered, the demon kingdom has been thrown into chaos, and Gray’s help is needed to identify the murderer.
Gray has his doubts. Demons don’t have the best reputations, after all. Still, despite his reservations, there is something about Dreo that calls to him. Whether it’s his dark good looks or the startling knowledge that Dreo believes they are destined mates, Gray can’t help but agree to offer his assistance.

Unfortunately, their road to happiness isn’t destined to be an easy one. Between court intrigue, their own unexpected mating, and a murderer still on the loose, they are definitely going to have their work cut out for them. What are the chances, they’ll get their happy ending? Ask the Oracle.

Reader Advisory: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series.

I’m so glad that I took a chance on this book! I was really worried because in all the books that I have read in the past, I haven’t read one about an Oracle per say. But after reading the book, I’m left wondering why there aren’t more books out there about Oracles!  This author did an amazing job with a supernatural creature that isn’t talked about a lot and was able to make an awesome story about it.
Grayson was just an amazing character. Even though he was the Oracle, there was still a lot of information given about him that wasn’t just about his powers. The author wrote his character in a way that you were able to get to know him for him, not just what he can do. I really enjoyed him quite a bit during the course of the story. I can say that he’s one of the few main characters that I have read about that haven’t made me upset with them during the course of the book.
Andreo was just WOW. The author was able to bring forth the fact that he was a lust demon off the pages and just made me fall in lust with him myself. The battle that he was facing in the underworld was a great addition because it added more to the story itself.
The story overall was one that I did completely enjoy. There were plenty of twists and turns throughout it all that kept me on the edge of my seat, waiting to find out what was going to happen next. There were a lot of characters introduced during the course of this book, and I would say that was the one main downfall of the story. It was difficult at times to keep track of who was who, and what they were in relation to the main characters.
The author has a great start to a new series and I really can’t wait to see what happens in the next book!
