Publisher's Summary

Beneath the streets of Averalaan, capital city of the Essalieyan Empire, lie the three Princes of the firstborn, doomed to sleep until the end of days. When gods walked the world, they feared the Sleepers. They fear them even now. If the Sleepers wake, the city will not survive - and the Sleepers are waking.

House Terafin has already felt the consequences of their stirring. To save the city - and the House over which she rules - Jewel Markess ATerafin must go to face the Oracle. She leaves a House that is still divided and a city in which demons, in human guise, have begun to move. At no time in Terafin's history has it faced the dangers it now faces, and it will face them bereft of its leader. Jewel has always seen unpredictable glimpses of the future - images of death and destruction that she cannot control and cannot always understand. To master her birthright, she chooses to walk the path of the Oracle.

In her hands she carries the only hope of the Winter Queen. But the path she must travel was old when the gods ceased to walk the world. Ancient creatures stalk winter skies at the behest of the demons, who mean to ensure that she will never reach the Oracle's side. Secrets, long hidden from all but the first­born, will finally be brought to light. Choices will be made and paths chosen from which there will be no return....

Oracle is the intricate sixth novel in The House War series. Set in the same rich fantasy universe as Michelle West's Sacred Hunt duology and her six-book Sun Sword series, the House War novels recount the events leading to the momentous final confrontation between the demonic minions of the Lord of the Hells and the defenders of the Essalieyan Empire - a realm with a long and bloody history.

    "Book 6 Is NOT the Final Book"

    The 2nd "trilogy" of House War turns out to be incomplete. I'm now about 10 hours from end of Oracle and very little has happened in the book. Although there's no indication of another novel, I starting researching to see what I could learn from various sources and a Wiki reference indicates this "last" book was split into 2 novels... the 2nd of which could be called "War" - no hint of when it will be released. Given where book 5 ended and the fact that this book is nearly 30 hours, couldn't see how there would be more than this "final" 6th novel in a 6 book series. I can't find any reference on the authors website about another book.

    An additional book is accomplished by spending the start of Oracle with 6+ hours following the most minor of characters (Jester). Additional hours focus on other minor characters doing exciting stuff like having hours long discussions of hugely entertaining things like merchant corruption or alliances. The main character, Jewel, has been relegated to an occasional passage. It feels like non-events are getting strung out longer into narratives just for the sake of pushing a possible conclusion into another book. I say "possible" conclusion because at this rate, who knows if a book 7 would complete the series.

    "Love it!"

    This adds new depth to the characters and you understand much more of the forest, Jewell, finch, teller, and jester. I recommend. This series gets better and better with each book. I can't wait till the next book!
