Oracle's Legacy Children of the Sun by R. B. Holbrook

Book Description:
The Structure is a secret civilization made up of seven houses that pursue enlightenment by attempting to understand the nature of energy. The structure of the Houses that insists upon learning and growing together is collapsing. In its place begins the seeds of infighting. Soon, without their notice, the people of the Houses begin losing their special powers. The Oracle, the leader of the Structure, hates to see what had become of her people. But she's dying and can do little to help them. Now, as the Structure begins tipping deeper into darkness, a new leader is needed to prevent conflict among the Houses from escalating into an all-out war. Ollie could be the key to finding the next leader, but she has her family to think of and a life to live. So she must remain unnoticed. As power hungry factions hunt for Ollie, however, she has no choice but to get involved. She'll do whatever's necessary to protect her loved ones.
My Thoughts:
Ollie is very sure of herself and her abilities. Her twin is much less sure of himself, but is more than willing to do what he can to keep her safe. When it becomes obvious that the Oracle is soon to need a replacement, Ollie's services become so in demand that she has to disappear in order to keep from being killed for working for the wrong side. Other complications make it even more imperative for no one to find her. When her family is threatened, Ollie is more than willing to sacrifice herself for their benefit. The first in the series, it leaves you on edge to see what is going to happen next. I rarely read this genre, but I found this book interesting. I would rate it a 4/5. It is well worth the read. I may have found a new genre to read to add to my others!
I want to thank the author for sending me this book to review. I received this book in exchange for an honest opinion and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
