Read full description of the books:



Catherine Fisher baseou-se nas tradições da Grécia Antiga e na cosmogonia da civilização egípcia para criar um mundo com reminiscências de algo que nos é familiar mas que, no entanto, é totalmente novo. Numa terra onde não cai uma gota de água há quatro meses, todos acreditam que o velho Arconte, o Deus-no-Mundo, tem de ser sacrificado para trazer a chuva. Mas, no momento da sua morte, este lança Mirany, a nova Portadora, para uma espiral de conspirações, dúvidas e traições. Mirany, uma rapariga tímida e desajeitada, tem apenas como aliados Oblek, um músico insensato, e Seth, um escriba que é também assaltante de túmulos. Num ápice, somos envolvidos com estas três personagens numa demanda que se desenrola vertiginosamente ao longo dos nove dias em que decorrem as cerimónias fúnebres do velho Arconte. O engenho do enredo e da construção das personagens faz com que a história nunca se torne previsível. Uma aventura emocionante onde a tensão se mantém viva até à última página, O Oráculo é uma obra notável por colocar igualmente questões bastante pertinentes sobre a morte, a ambição e a natureza da fé.
