The Light of the Oracle

Summary ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Victoria Hanley The Light of the Oracle Read & download ↠ 2 Bryn is the daughter of a humble stone cutter So no one is surprised than she when the Master Priest seeks her out to become a student at the famous Temple of. Well I have to say that this was a VAST improvement from Hanley s second book in this trilogy Healer s Keep While distantly set in the same universe as Seer and the Sword and Healer s Keep The Light of the Oracle is very distinctive in its world building While I don t think the country was as fleshed out as it could have been it isn t ultimatelyof much conseuence This story solidly takes place in the Temple of the Oracle rarely extending beyond its walls We get hints of it here and there with mentions of Uste Tunise and the desert somewhere amidst it all but it s hard for the reader to get a firm grip of the exterior environment Even within the Temple of the Oracle you don t get a ton of physical description but it didn t bother me that much This was a very character driven plot and most of the details were pumped into societal aspects of the Temple as well as the characters themselves I just ADORED the idea of the birds choosing their prophets and phropetesses and the idea of receiving a feather from them It was tremendously uniue and something I haven t come across in the fantasy genre before While most of the school scenes are reminiscent of other YA Fantasy novels Hanley distinguished herself with lovely oddities Also I appreciate that Hanley honed her focus in this novel Instead of leaping from character to character and from place to place as in Healer s Keepshe stuck to the Temple setting for the most part and made sensible timely departures at critical moments I liked that we got to see the inner workings of the school this time around As for the character I really think that they were fairly well developed for this genre I do understand you can only take so deep a dive into character in a pseudo stand alone novel of this length I felt like there was definitely character development in this book Kiran Brynn and Dawn all grew over time It didn t feel forced It felt pretty natural for the most part Brock wasn t as fleshed out in my opinion but since he was ancillary I wasn t really bothered by thisSo Clea Oh sweet sweet sweeeeet jerkface Clea What a freaking nightmare When I first started the book I had false hopes that Clea would be humbled and learn to relate to her peasant compatriot Brynn It would have been the perfect set up really and a much complex problem to tackle Snobby rich girl leaves home and learns the world isn t as black and white and classist as it once seemed Or rather she would be challenged to break down those barriers from a position of privelege learning to relate to her peers and respect them as euals I imagined Clea and Brynn striking up a friendship fighting the ills of the world together Instead she really is as petty selfish and cruel as she appears on the surface Clea s character doesn t develop She basically gets everything she wants up until the last moment where she is suddenly nullified I won t say howSome problems with the way they characterized Clea and the other Feathers It was very obviously a classist issue at its heart which I can respect as a valid social criticism however Hanley took the trope of the mean girl and just pounded it into you with no new filters or takes Clea was a vindictive cliche through and through As she was one of the main villains throughout I had hoped for a bit than that but was dissappointed So back to the core of my dissappointment here Hanley not only takes the mean girl cliche but also the stereotype of girls as inherently mean and vindictive than boys At one point Kiran and the prissy mean boy cliue whatever their names were they were only mentioned a couple timesget into a physical brawl and fight it out like men After the fight is over they still don t like each other but they respect each other Okay gag whatever Meanwhile Clea and Brynn and their respective crews fight throughout the entire novel and just meanly tear each other down never making amends I guess I found it to be a little sexist in that regardI ll go further to say that jealousy and spite were Clea s driving forces to be mean against Brynn She couldn t stand the idea of a peasant being better than her in any manner So she focused on tearing her down Then she romantically pursues Kiran throughout depsite his street urchin upbringing and that somehow doesn t bother her Like she hates Clea for being from the lower class but doesn t care that Kiran is as well Kiran who she sees as a prospective husband which is arguably important than any rival she could have with some other classmate at the Temple It just doesn t add up Also I don t know what it is with Hanley in her books that all the adults in her books are either blazing idiotshopelessly incompetent at their roles or a villain There is literally no inbetween There appear to be no decentcompetent human beings over the age of 20 Like come on Ilanna you are the most powerful priestess in the land and wise and what not but you can stand and speak up when you KNOW something is afoot And as for Renchald he was just confusing Was anyone else confused by his character motivation in this book Other than thwarting Selid and BrynnOverall I m teetering between a 3 and a 4 here I suppose for the YA genre it s a 4 but for uality it s a 3 It was very entertaining and an easy read I found it hard to put down I read it in about a day AAAANNDDD it was written by Victoria Hanley whom I unfalteringly love And it was a million times better than Healer s Keep I would definitely recommend as a light read to a friend who enjoys YA Fantasy
