THE LAST ORACLE
This third addition to Simpson’s Forbidden Tarot series is a wonderfully entertaining story of gods and aliens. Plenty of action, suspense, good characterization and fine romance keep the reader’s attention to the last page and beyond.
The chance viewing of a tarot card from the Forbidden Tarot of the Oracle of Avaris sets Maxwell Griffin — widower, scientist, inventor — on a path that will have him rescuing Amara. As the Oracle, she seeks to save a baby boy from Simeon Avara, aka Set, her vicious master throughout many thousands of years, and return him to his guardian. Max is soon drawn into the world of the supernatural and falling in love with a woman he isn’t even sure is real. (LUCKY, Aug., 232 pp., $9.99)
