Book Review: The Jracon’s Oath

Title: The Jracon’s Oath (The Odonata Chronicles #2)

Author: Tom Simmons



When all seems lost, the strong do not give up hope.

The Hawker Clan have taken the Chama Fogo Enchiridion – a powerful book of elemental fire magic. Dax and his dragonfly companions are badly injured. If he has any chance of getting the Book back and protecting those he loves from certain danger then he must find the Book, carried off by the nightmarish creature known as the Jraconoid, before it reaches the Hawkers’ subterranean fortress, the Basilica.

But many perils await him on this desperate chase, and his resolve and magical powers are tested to their limits in this exciting sequel to “The Jracon’s Burden”.

My Review

5/5 Stars

After the adventures of book one, this book plunges us into action and suspense. The Enchiridion has been taken and Dax and his friends are in bad shape. In order to protect himself and those he loves, he must be the one to go and retrieve the book…no matter what the cost.

This book moved along faster than the first installment with action happening in just about every chapter. I felt as if we really got to know our characters in ways that we didn’t before. If you’re a fan of fast paced fantasy, this is definitely the series for you.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
