An orphan with a painful past. A wizard running out of time. Together, they’ll discover the most powerful magic is hidden within.
Orphaned at birth and bullied his whole life, Idi never thought he’d grow up to become anything other than the village idiot. When a washed-up wizard tells him he’s destined to become a legendary magician, he’s certain he’s got the wrong urchin. But that doesn’t stop Idi from tagging along on his quest to save the future king.
After seven decades spent puttering around with his magic, Marcus worries his time for heroics has come and gone. So when an oracle entrusts him to train the only boy capable of saving the entire kingdom from dark magic, he jumps at his final shot for glory.
As Idi studies magic under his new master, he struggles to push past the painful memories of abuse and self-doubt that block his powers. But with each step along their perilous quest to save the future king, Idi’s confidence grows along with his healing touch. As dark magic creatures join the race to sway the future king’s heart, Idi and Marcus must learn to believe in themselves to free the kingdom from the clutches of evil.
Idi and the Oracle’s Quest is the first book in the exciting Born to Be series of YA fantasy adventure novels. If you like magical creatures, action-packed quests, and journeys of self-discovery, then you’ll love Tracy Traynor’s heartfelt coming-of-age story.
Marcus is a seventy year old magician that has a reputation and is mentor of 12 brothers. He is appointed a quest by Oleanna, the Oracle of the kingdom, to locate a boy named Idi. Marcus is to mentor and tend to Idi and help him to find The One prophesied to be King. At first Marcus has trouble getting Idi to go along with him but eventually Idi does. As they journey along, Idi finds a baby that he feels drawn to and takes him to Marcus. Idi heals the baby’s broken arm, which is the first sign of his healing powers, and a show for what is to come.
What ensues is a magical adventure that will have readers rooting for Idi and turning the pages quickly. This book has it all. Magic, fairies and pixies, demons, humans, dwarves, witches and dragons. Idi’s name is short for idiot. Idi has low self-esteem and thinks he’s stupid. But as time progresses he grows into a capable man that does marvelous feet’s.
The premise of the story is mainly about how people that think they aren’t worth much, can overcome their difficulties and achieve success. Oracle’s Quest is a great book for teens and young adults, especially those that need encouragement in life and in their abilities. There is a lot going on in this story and I was captivated from the very beginning. It is well written and composed and easy to read. It is full of interest, mysticism and adventure. Readers will marvel in the adventure and be thrilled by the storyline as they forget about their own issues and escape into this wondrous, magical kingdom filled with creatures, and humans that do marvelous feet’s and all kinds of fantastical exploits.
In Oracle’s Quest, the characters are wonderful and full of personality and intrigue. They are well developed, fleshed out and multidimensional. They are realistic even though they are mythical creatures because they have true to life personalities, problems and abilities that show that they can do anything they put their minds to.
I loved Oracle’s Quest. It is one of the best fantasy books that I have read in a long time. The moral and premise of the story really hit home with me. The action and adventure is fantastical and magical. I applaud Ms T N Traynor for her writing skills and talent. She made up a fabulous fantasy tale that all will love. I’m looking forward to more books written by her.
