      The Oracle Betrayed sat in my tbr pile for about three years Finally, last weekend, I brushed the dust from it note to self dust tbr pile often , and actually read it.And it was really, really good.It takes place in an ancient Greek kind of place, where a young girl, Mirany, is one of chosen Nine who serve the Oracle Her land is dying from droughtbut though the Archon, the god king, gives his life as a sacrifice, the drought continues.Mirany can hear the god speaking through the Oracle He has b [...]

      So this was an awesome book I didn t think it would be so great I mean, check out the cover But it exceeded my expectations I ve noticed that about books I read if I expect less of it initially, but it turns out to be better, I give it a high rating Likewise, if I thought the book would be awesome but it sucks, I give it a low rating I don t think I ll change that if you re supposed to be good and aren t, that s your problem and if you don t seem to be good but really are kudos for you Throughou [...]

    3. Nora on said:

      So I ve tried Catherine Fisher s Incarceron before this book, and it didn t impress me all that much This one was better, though it still didn t blow me away.SummaryMirany is one of the sacred nine priestesses that serve the scorpion god he s never explicitly named She serves as Bearer, meaning that she carries a bronze bowl containing the god in scorpion form during holy processions and rituals The High Priestess, Hermia, hears the god s word through the oracle and interprets it However, moment [...]

      I decided to read this after I read Incarceron I enjoyed this book , but I have to admit that it has some of the same problems that Incarceron had First, the setting I do not usually like long winded, overly descriptive novels that tell you what city is north of what body of water, but the setting seemed almost nonexistent in The Oracle Betrayed From what I understood it is an ancient Egyptian or ancient Greek type of setting It is certainly set in a desert environment, but I would have liked to [...]

      Not my favorite Catherine Fisher novel but definitely a good book.

      THE ORACLE BETRAYED originally known as THE ORACLE by Catherine Fisher is a wonderful book for Middle grade kids, about an unknown place set in the ancient past where Greek religious rites are blended with Egyptian ritual There s been a drought and the Archon is being sacrificed to make rain But who is to be the next Archon And has the process of choosing him been corrupted by some ruthless individuals who are in power What struck me about this book, which was shortlisted for the Whitbread Chidr [...]

    7. Emily B. on said:

      This book reminds me of another Catherine Fisher book, Incarceron Both stories involve political intrigue, such as false rulers and assassination attempts I liked this book much than Incarceron because I felt like thought was put into creating the setting and characters The society in the Oracle series was created with a great attention to detail The reader gets to hear about local customs and mythology With Incarceron, we didn t get much insight into the characters rituals or beliefs Also, I [...]

    8. Melissa McShane on said:

      One of the things I like about Catherine Fisher s work is that it uses familiar stories or locations, but comes at them kind of sideways Here, the culture is a hybrid of Greek and Egyptian the setting, the people and the economy resemble those of ancient Greece, while the religion, with its elaborate death rituals and taboos, comes straight out of our stories of ancient Egypt I like that Mirany, most timid of the God s priestesses, has to learn to believe in her God, while Seth, self sufficient [...]

    9. Rachel on said:

      I first read this book when I was 10 or so Now almost a decade later, it s still really really good.The world building is impeccable and is probably one of the best I ve read so far Catherine Fisher is not an extraneous writer, which I have a great appreciation for since adjectives and lengthy description irk me greatly.Her writing actually reminds me somewhat of Suzanne Collin s, in that they re both really, really good at moving plot There s just something about this book that is relentlessly [...]

    10. Jess on said:

      The Speaker is corrupt, the Oracle has been betrayedd I need to get my hands on the sequel Slightly reminiscent of Megan Whalen Turner s The Thief in terms of alternate mythology, gods who speak to the characters, and intrigue Hard to put down, and it will make you grateful for every drop of water you have access to.

    11. Sarah Freeman on said:

      A beautiful, unique read that tackles a question like godliness with wit and grace.

    12. Mie on said:

      I like this trilogy about Mirany I have always had an eye for fictional stories about Ancient Egypt

    13. Savanna on said:

      The ancient greek ancient egyptian motifs drew me in, and the story solidified it The setting and imagery of this book is phenomenal, the characters are interesting and believable, and the story is intriguing 5 5

    14. Sarah P on said:

      Fischer did a great job It seemed to have elements of both Greek and Egyptian mythology a very pleasant and exciting read

    15. Elizabeth on said:

      So fun The main character has the reputation of a mouse but she just needed the right incentive to become rather kick ass The world building is interesting, the characters are varied and the story fun.

    16. Miranda on said:

      I read and loved Fisher s book Incarceron, which I found to be a very smart fantasy book, so I was interested in reading what else she d written Mostly so I could fill the gap between Incarceron and Sapphique This one caught my eye due to the unique mix of Greek and Egyptian cultures Plus, working to overthrow a conspiracy Sign me right up I was entertained by The Oracle Betrayed, but it didn t quite blow me away That s not to say it was horrible or mediocre, but it definitely didn t draw me com [...]

    17. Robin on said:

      I picked this novel up because of the author, Catherine Fisher This series preceded her popular Incarceron Sapphique series by a couple of years, but I had never heard of it at all IMHO it is FAR superior material I was delighted with the intensity of the plot, with its many threads, the development and growth of the characters, the ordinariness of our motley crew of heroes, and the writing itself I swear her descriptions of the drought made me thirsty Mirany is a shy and somewhat awkward girl f [...]

    19. Antonia on said:

      In my oppinion, The Oracle Betrayed it s a great book it has action, the characters are well defined, funny and really interesting It s like you always say, there I know what s going to happen, but the BAM Something incredibly amazing happens, and you say you must read just one chapter, one chapter, and then you reach the last page when did that happen.The Oracle Betrayed is the first of the Oracle Prophecies Trilogy It s about this shy girl, called Mirany awesome name, if you ask me She is on [...]

    20. Sofia on said:

      A light, entertaining read, good for spending a quiet afternoon or two.There is a conspiracy for power in the Temple of course and the only ones who can put a stop to it are Mirany, the quiet, shy girl who never wanted that life of course , Seth, the roguish young boy who is reluctant to help but does anyway because of his good heart of course and the drunken musician with a mild disposition towards violence of course However, despite the parade of tropes, the characters are compelling enough no [...]

      POPSUGAR 2017 Reading Challenge prompt A book recommended by a librarian I originally read this series in highschool It was the first book series I d read that had anything that could be described as political intrigue, and I really enjoyed those aspects of the book Mirany s struggle echoed mine as a teen, and watching her be successful through the course of this book was wonderful I hated Seth, and the tiny hints of pairing Mirany and Seth up were irritating.

    22. Kaito Aileen on said:

      This series is a great choice if you re looking for some beautiful world building and properly fleshed out characters Bonus points if you like a deserts in need of rain b temples and tombs c blend between Greek and Egyptian mythology d conspiraciesMirany, is a shy but courageous priestess that was just recently promoted Just before the current Archon vessel of the god dies, he tells her the current Oracle doesn t hear the god s voice at all and has been faking it Guided by the god s voice, she m [...]

      A dying God, a twisted priestess and a general wanting control of an empire Catherine Fisher has created an amazing world which seems to blend elements of Ancient Egypt, Classical Greece and her own imagination The Two Lands are ruled by the Priestesses who live on the Island They serve the Archon who embodies the God and there are only nine One of the youngest is appointed to the role of Bearer of the God which carries with it many dangers as the God appears as a scorpion or a snake However Mir [...]

    24. Marilag on said:

      Wow This book was surprisingly good I enjoyed The Oracle Betrayed much than I did Incarceron, which was also written by the same author.I hadn t realized Fisher had been the same author, but I mostly picked this story up because it was a different historical time period than what I ve been reading lately It was an ancient Egyptian teen fantasy, and it was greatly crafted, illustrating so many aspects of the ancient world The pacing was fast but easy to follow, and the story was enjoyable.Above [...]

    25. Lady on said:

      This was a nice little book I d read Catherine Fisher before and enjoyed Incarceron so when I learned it wasn t her first novel I was curious about her other books Turns out this was her first book published in the US.The story is pretty simple But the characters are interesting if not entirely deep they re well developed enough to support the story The mythology of the world is interesting, something a little like The Thief but somehow both involved and less profound.The allusions to the seque [...]
