When you absolutely have to know…

Grayson Muir is a know it all. No, seriously…he really does know it all. The strength of his abilities has him rumored to be the most powerful Oracle in the world. Gray couldn’t care less. All his life, Gray has played by his own rules. Whether through his own, private, clients or his work with the police, his only goal is to use his gift to help as many people and paras as he can. With abilities like Gray’s, he doesn’t have time for any distractions.

Unfortunately, that is exactly what he gets when Andreo Demos, a six hundred year old lust demon, pays him an unexpected visit. Dreo has been sent by the Demon Counsel with an appeal for assistance. The Lord of the Underworld has been murdered, the demon kingdom has been thrown into chaos, and Gray’s help is needed to identify the murderer.
Gray has his doubts. Demons don’t have the best reputations, after all. Still, despite his reservations, there is something about Dreo that calls to him. Whether it’s his dark good looks or the startling knowledge that Dreo believes they are destined mates, Gray can’t help but agree to offer his assistance.

Unfortunately, their road to happiness isn’t destined to be an easy one. Between court intrigue, their own unexpected mating, and a murderer still on the loose, they are definitely going to have their work cut out for them. What are the chances, they’ll get their happy ending? Ask the Oracle.

Reader Advisory: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series.

In book 1 of the Revelations series, we have Grayson Muir, who is known as the most powerful oracle alive. He doesn’t know who his real parents are and would have went crazy if not for the help of another psychic who helped him come into his powers. Now Gray runs his own small agency and that’s how he meets the lust demon Andreo.
I liked the two characters, but this story could have been way better. The story was cute, but too fast paste. Andreo and Gray needs another story because it feels like theirs is just starting. Not enough interaction between these two to make me believe that they’re in love, even if they are mates. Still, the imagination of the author had me reading book 2 and probably other books in this series.
