Book Review: Oracle - Sunken Earth

Someone I know recently released a book that I was anxious to read and was so excited when he asked me to do a review.  The book is called "Oracle - Sunken Earth" and is the first book in a 7 book series.

C.W. Trisef has always been a dreamer with a passion for creative literature, especially fictional adventure.  He believes that any quest can be realized within the pages of a good book.  One brilliant day, during the Spring of 2004, C.W. envisioned the first adventure of Ret Cooper and his fate with the Oracle.  Seven years and hundreds of pages of manuscript later, Trisef Book was formed and the Oracle Series officially began.

The synopsis from the book:

Fall, current day, Atlantic Ocean. Another hurricane tears through the Bahamas, headed for Florida. Among the wreckage: a U.S. Coast Guard rescue boat, one survivor (Ret Cooper), and a spherical object of curious design (the Oracle).

Ret Cooper is a simple young man with mysterious origins, unique physical features, and no memory of his past. His new family and friends discover he is truly extraordinary, with supernatural powers and strange scars on the palms of his hands. But what is his destiny?

The Oracle is the key to Earth's unity and full potential, too perfect to be man-made. Legend claims it can unleash limitless power when filled with Mother Nature's six, pure, original elements. But where are these elements? And which of our planet's ancient secrets will be explained in the process of locating them?

The first book from new author C.W. Trisef will have you cheering for Ret as he travels a submerged road, discovers a lost city, climbs an electrifying mountain, and begins to unravel the mystery of the Oracle ... all during his first year of high school.

There have been many, many times that I have started a book and not finished it.  I am extremely picky when it comes to reading, and not just about the genre or plot, but also about the kind of writing the author uses. The writing in Oracle -Sunken Earth is very similar to that of the Percy Jackon's series in that it is easy to read and to the point.

I also really liked how the book starts out as a modern-day story about a boy in high school and evolves into a sci-fi with some mystery and action.  I also love that it is clean and great for all ages.  I would definitely recommend it to everyone that likes a fun action-adventure fiction.
