Blurb: At just eighteen years of age, Keir became the leader of the army fighting against the usurper king while Princes Edan and Egan led the navy. At his side, willing to help from time to time, was Sprite.
A friendly ghost, Sprite likes to keep Keir company and occasionally play tricks on Keir’s sister. When the Oracle demands Keir’s presence, he expects Sprite to travel with him.
He doesn’t expect the gale that knocks him overboard and into an adventure that might just kill him.
Keir’s been the leader of an army since he turned into a man and since then, he’s had a friendly little ‘sprite’ to keep him company along the way. When the Oracle requests Keir’s presence, he doesn’t quite know the reason for it but on his way there, one thing after another gets in the way of making it to the Oracle. Thankfully, his little sprite is there to save him and he finds out just who Sprite really is.
This was suuuuuuuuch a cute little story! Possibly my favorite so far (although The Oracle’s Golem may still be it!) because I just loved the premise that Keir fell in love with a ‘ghost’ and Sprite fell in love with someone he thought he could never have. It was adorable seeing the way they both relied on each other and I really loved seeing their journey to visit the Oracle… because it was definitely suspenseful!
I enjoyed this one but my issue is the same as it’s been for all the books in this series – I WISH IT WERE LONGER! I just wanted more, more, more of Keir and Sprite. I want to know where things go from here for them!
All in all, this was still a great addition to The Oracle series. I just adored the characters and getting to know them. I wish it had been longer but I still enjoyed it, especially since we got to see some of the characters from previous books (I ❤ Golem!). If you’ve enjoyed The Oracle series so far, definitely give this one a go 🙂
Overall Impression: I really liked it!
