    This review was written for Eye of the Oracle, Oracles of Fire Series #1.
    We read all four of Davis's books in the "Dragons in Our Midst" series—Raising Dragons, The Candlestone, Circles of Seven, and Tears of a Dragon, several years ago, and they have been reviewed here previously. Our older son Mark had them as part of his sophomore literature, but he said that he really didn't care for them. Our younger son Jeremy did try the first one just because he likes anything related to dragons but refused to read any more because he thought that it was really weird and he didn't like the killing of the father. I basically enjoyed them but admit that they are very fantastical and may not appeal to some people. This past year author Brian Davis, a homeschooling father, spoke and exhibited at our local homeschool conference, so I picked up a copy of the prequel, Eye of the Oracle, which is actually Book 1 in another related series, "Oracles of Fire."

    According to the chart in the book, the events in Eye of the Oracle precede those of the "Dragpns in Our Midst" series, then the next three books in "Oracles of Fire"--Enoch's Ghost, Last of the Nephilim, and The Bones of Makaidos, are sequels to Tears of a Dragon. Eye of the Oracle goes back in time to the flood of Noah's day and follows the activities of two sorceresses, Lilith, who becomes Morgan, and her sister Naamah, the opposing work of the underborn Mara, who becomes Sapphira, and Elam, a son of Seth, along with good and bad dragons, angels, demons, and other beings, through the time of Nimrod and the tower of Babel, and then the days of King Arthur and Merlin, down to where the story begins in Raising Dragons. How did dragons survive the flood? Who helped preserve an ancient evil force that led to the dragons' demise in the days of King Arthur? And what heroic sacrifices kept that evil from exterminating the dragon race forever? The book helps to explain some of the concepts found in the "Dragons in Our Midst" series such as the Candlestone and the Circles of Seven. The last chapter generally covers the events in the "Dragons in Our Midst" books to set the stage for Enoch's Ghost.

    There is little objectionable in the book. Many may not agree with how some of the Biblical references are handled. For example, I don't believe that there's any Biblical basis whatever to think that Ham was an immoral rebel before the flood (yes, he, along with Noah himself, made some mistakes after the flood) or that his wife was Naamah the sorceress who had worked as a harlot in a brothel. 1 Peter 3:20 says, "Eight souls [Noah, his wife, his three sons, and their wives] were saved by water." It is my firm conviction that this means not that they just had their lives preserved from the flood, but that they were spiritually saved, or in a righteous relationship with God. However, if one understands the basic plot of the book as fiction, with some action occurring in a Biblical and quasi-historical setting, and likes inventive fantasy with spawns being raised in the underworld after a Brave New World fashion and beings travelling through Star Trek transporter-like portals, all wrapped up in an exciting good versus evil narrative, he will likely find this book very interesting.

    I have two sons, ages 11 and 12. They both loved reading this book series! They read the Dragons in our Mist books first and then followed up with The Oracles of Fire series. These books have kept them reading throughout the summer months!

    What I enjoyed most about this book is how Bryan Davis took the true facts of history and wove his own story in with it, he managed to do it in a way that made since and seemed possible. In this book you learn the history of the dragons and the past of the characters from Dragons in Our Midst. Read together the two series make one epic adventure.

    This review was written for Eye of the Oracle, Oracles of Fire Series #1.
    The Eye of the Oracle has a complex plot and yet it all ties nicely together. Many authors have a hard time keeping the reader interest in such a web of time, place, and character but not Bryan Davis in this story. I was excited when I discovered that this series did not only have to do with King Arther and his descendants but Biblical characters too. The young life of the characters I had come to love and that of their ancestors gave me more to know and more to love about them. I came to really know the characters and their lives.
