The Oracle Betrayed: Book One of The Oracle Prophecies de Catherine Fisher (2003)

  1. 10
    The Blue Hawk de Peter Dickinson (Sakerfalcon)
    Sakerfalcon: Both books deal with corruptly-led religions in a desert setting, and follow the trials of a young protagonist who attempts to set things right. Excellent worldbuilding from both authors.

This fantasy book is about Mirany, who serves the High Priestess that claims to hear the god speak to her and must do as she wishes. But then Mirany hears the god speak to her and realizes the High Priestess is a powerful fraud. She must team up with Seth, a tomb-raider, to stop the High Priestess and free the land. Fantasy isn't my preferred genre, but I thought this book was well written and an entertaining read. This is the first book of a series, so it ended on a cliff hanger to carry over into the second book. I thought the characters were well developed and the plot wasn't too simple, yet not too convoluted. This book is one I would want in a classroom. There are a lot of references to Greek history, so maybe I could use this book during a lesson on ancient Greece or Greek mythology. The book could be suitable for 5th or 6th graders at a minimum.

I enjoyed this book. Shy mousey Mirany if chosen by the god to right what has gone wrong. The speaker uses her position for her own gain. Seth is a scribe caught up in things beyond his experience.

One chapter is titled: A God is Not Responsible for his Worshippers

That felt like a cop out to me. He should be. He needs to do something about the bad things that were done in his name. He needs to show he rejects those who misuse their position ( )

Fisher has created an intricate world in this book, which combines elements of Ancient Egypt and Greece and in which the readers can feel the parched lands which are central to the plot. Her characters are well developed and the plot is fast-paced and will keep readers turning pages to find out if Mirany will be able to outrun her enemies in her quest to find the true Archon and to give him his rightful place. The novel ends with the promise of a sequel, which will be much anticipated by its readers. ( )

Fantastic and gripping. In an Egyptian type setting a young priestess is told of a plot to ignore the gods and overtake the country. She must enlist the help of an ambitious scribe and a drunken musician to find the true host for the god and restore order to the temple and country in order to bring the rain back. ( )

This series is pretty good, it's been a while since I read this one though. It's about a young priestess who is trying to get the right person as head of the oracle or something like that. ( )
