The Oracle of Stamboul

The Oracle of Stamboul - Michael David Lukas I received this book free through the Good Reads First Reads program.

I really enjoyed this lovely little story, and it's gotten me hooked on wanting to know more about the history of this region where the story takes place. Although I don't feel like it really wrapped up some of the loops of the story and I was still left with several questions at the end, I still feel like it was well worth the read and will probably read it again sometime. Plus, I would love to know what happened next in Eleanora's life even though I got the feeling that there won't be a second installment.

I liked most of the characters and thought they were fleshed out very well, considering this turned out to be such a quick read.

I would definitely keep my eye on this author, and look forward to future books from him.
