After reading Oracle's Legacy: Children of Sun and Oracle's Legacy: Shadows of Fatethe first two books in this trilogy I was well educated in the fantasy world that Holbrook has created. However for those that haven't read either one I would suggest that the author add a prologue and perhaps even glossary of words or definitions. Because this book may seem confusing without any prior history or knowledge of the story, especially as it is quite complex. It is a trilogy I think both epic fantasy and sci-fi readers will appreciate, because of its intricate ideas. I enjoyed it, as I did the other two and will certainly be looking out for more by this author.
