The globe in search of answers one step ahead of ruthless killers determined to reclaim the priceless artifact Suddenly the future of all things is balanced on the brink between heaven and hell and salvation or destruction rests in the hands of remarkable childrenWill the past be enough to save the futu. The Last Oracle was an excellent addition to the SIGMA Force series with an engaging plot that wraps up a thread left hanging in The Judas StrainOutside of SIGMA headuarters Commander Gray Pierce is caught in a firefight that leaves a man dead with an ancient coin clutched in his hand After the coin leads SIGMA to a relic traced back to the Oracle of Delphi the race is on to solve the artifact’s mysteries while keeping it out of the hands of the unrelenting killers on their trail At the same time half a world away a man awakens with no memory of who he is accompanied by two extraordinary children who are in a mad dash to stop mankind’s destruction before it’s too lateBoth plotlines in this book are action packed with intriguing mysteries for the characters to solve Ultimately I enjoyed both plotlines but for different reasons The plot following Gray has action and I felt like the stakes were higher which kept me invested I also thought the pacing in Gray’s plot was better and the story moved forward at a good rate which kept things from stagnating The plot with the man with amnesia however I loved because of the characters involved I won’t give spoilers relating to the man’s identity but his appearance made me genuinely excited and I was interested to learn how he ended up where he did When the two plots ultimately merge it was fantastically done and I thought the author did a great job blending the two character groups togetherThe characters in this series continue to be one of the best aspects of the books In this book we got to see of characters who previously had smaller roles in the series I was particularly happy to get of Kowalski as he’s an excellent character and the most relatable of the bunch Kat continues to be a favorite as well and I enjoyed that she had a bigger role this time around We are also introduced to some new characters in this installment and of those Marta was definitely my favoriteOverall The Last Oracle was a fast paced thrilling read and I really enjoyed it I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series The Doomsday Key soon
