~Book Review: Oracle-Sunken Earth by C.W. Trisef~

Oracle - Sunken Earth
Oracle-Sunken Earth (Book 1)

348 Pages
Published by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform (June 22, 2011)
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.
 4 out of 5 stars
First, I want to thank the author for supplying me with a copy of this book for a fair and honest review.  C.W. Trisef is a new an exciting author that has some wonderful and fresh ideas for a new series.  As this book opens, we are thrust into the depths of a hurricane.  A boat is sinking fast as the coat guard tries desperately to save it.
Ret doesn't remember anything before the hurricane.  All he knows is that he looks different than everyone else and has these strange scars on his hands.  What do they mean?  Where did they come from?  Trying to fit into normal high school life, he soon discovers that the adults in his life may not be who he thinks they are.  Why is the new principal suddenly so interested in him?  With the help of the mysterious and wealthy Mr. Coy, Ret is about to embark on the journey of a lifetime.  One that will answer many of his questions.
Some interesting points of this book is the setting.  It takes place on beautiful Tybee Island.  The water is a very important element in the telling of this story.  The characters are wonderfully written.  We learn so much about Ret and his past, but I feel there will be a lot more to come in the following books.  One character that I enjoyed was Ivan, the Russian servant of Mr. Coy.  His accent is hilarious.  It is hard to understand and see what he is trying to say.  The reason I am giving it 4 stars is because the ending dragged in some parts.  It is not necessarily a bad thing, I wish that it could have been wrapped up more quickly.
I would defiantly recommend this book to anyone from middle grade on up.  If you like fantasy you will love this book.  It kind of has a Percy Jackson feel to it.  I have always heard, write about what you love.  You can feel the author's passion for adventure while reading this book.  I am looking forward to reading the second book Oracle - Fire Island.

About the Author:
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.

C.W. Trisef's Oracle Series is an impressive hybrid of fact and fiction, based on real places and substantiated theories. He believes a great story not only entertains but also educates. To this end, C.W. is committed to maintaining a well-informed imagination. This is why, for example, he traveled to the island of Bimini in the Bahamas in April 2011. Since the lost city of Atlantis has yet to be found, he braved the Bermuda Triangle and scuba dove the site of the actual Bimini Road for himself . After his trip, he even adjusted portions of the manuscript to be more consistent with what he observed. The product is a compelling blend of reality and fantasy that, as he knows and his readers agree, is almost believable.

C.W. Trisef believes that everyone should be able to read and experience the extraordinary adventures of Ret Cooper and his fate with the Oracle. To that end, if you personally find the paperback amount too high at and would like a copy at a cheaper price, please email him directly at Likewise, if you are interested in an autographed copy, please feel free to email him at the same address. Happy reading, the adventure has only just begun…
