)-- New Novel Offers Intense Storyline of Politics, Power and Family
Thousands of years after the most advanced civilization lived openly together, its members have dispersed throughout society, playing out political struggles while living among a human population that is not aware of their presence. The bitter fight for ascension to power creates a gripping plot in a new novel by Rosa Holbrook, Oracle’s Legacy: Children of Sun.
This ancient group, known as the Structure, is facing a great dilemma: their leader, the Oracle, is nearing the end of her life. Her approaching death has stirred up a battle over who will replace her. Although the most enlightened one among the Structure should be the next Oracle, several greedy people will do anything it takes to gain control. Holbrook’s heroine, Olivia “Ollie” Mason, is thrust into the middle of the controversy and finds herself running from these power-hungry people to protect her family.
Ollie is a coveted hired hand for the elite in the Structure. She’s an expert at covert activity. This, combined with her family ties, is what makes her a target for those seeking to find clandestine ways to get information on choosing a new Oracle. Ollie’s adoptive mother is the Oracle, which forces her to go into hiding from the likes of Mary Alexander and Arthur Clifton, who are eager to take the Oracle’s place. Augustus Granger, the one truly deserving of the role, plays a vital part in Ollie’s situation as well.
Ollie also has a secret link with a dark sect of the Structure called Moon, which is known for its suspicious energy and dark intentions. She has developed her dark powers, passed down to her through her birth mother, who was killed because of her link with the shadowy group. When Ollie’s secret comes to light, the one thing most precious to her – her family – is threatened.
Holbrook’s new novel, Oracle’s Legacy: Children of Sun, is an intense page-turner that weaves the intrigue of politics with the life story of a heroine who is forced to battle her own past while trying to do what is best for her family and the ancient civilization she serves.
