Chronicles of Myriad: Quest for the Oracle by James Nicholas Adams [Review]



Chronicles of Myriad: Quest for the Oracle by James Nicholas Adams
★★★★☆

Eight years after watching his best friend Kristine disappear, Jason embarks on a journey to find her. While exploring the Keash caves he frequented as a child, he falls and hits his head, rendered unconscious. He awakens to find himself chained up in a cage on a world unlike anything he has ever known and only an arm's length away from Kristine.The reunion is short lived as a sudden dragon attack on their captors causes them to once again become separated. Shortly after, he meets the Prophet Tanas who takes him to meet Jerech, an Elvish king and Jason's birth father. Here, he learns Kristine is in the hands of a nameless tyrant and embarks on a quest to free her. Along the way he discovers there is far more to the reason he is here than he thought, and he has a destiny beyond anything he ever imagined. (Goodreads)



Jason’s best friend Kristine disappeared when they were children. People tried to convince him that she had not been real, just an imaginary friend... but he knew she was real. Eight years later, he left his home behind to find Kristine and ended up on a journey he never expected to be on. He discovered a world very different from his own, where magic is real and dragons roam. He soon found out his destiny was a lot greater than finding his childhood best friend.

I really enjoyed The Quest for the Oracle. The story was well developed and kept me interested until the end.  I liked seeing how Jason developed as a character while he learned about himself. The fantasy and action scenes were done nicely, giving me the excitement I like in this type of book.

I’m impressed by this first-time author’s book and his writing. I thought the story was well-written, and I enjoyed his writing style. I can tell he put a lot of time, care, and effort into this book.

I look forward to reading more of the author's work - especially the next book in the series. I hope I don’t have to wait too long to find out what happens next in this world with the awesome characters that I got to know.

I received this book from the author for review.
