The Oracle Series
by Catherine Fisher (Author)
Initially unsuspecting, Mirany begins to receive direction from the scorpion god himself, soon teaming up with a scribe called Seth, a tomb thief known as The Jackal - and Oblek, a drunken and sometimes violent musician. The four devise a high-risk plan and work together in order to find and protect the new Archon.
A compelling trilogy, full of action, betrayals and mystery, and drawing on the rituals of the ancient Greeks and Egyptians. This fantasy world is richly-detailed and the adventure set against a backdrop that explores themes of ambition, motive and the implications of divinity.
