The Delphi Deception based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I received a copy from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This started right where the first book left off, so there wasn't anything missing. Zach is struggling with what he should do. Disappear and come back for Ashley when the time is right, or stay and fight the league. His choice is nearly made for him when Katie decides she wants to know who's ranked ahead of her at any cost. This moved at a much quicker pace than the first book, so it was very hard to put down. I can't wait to see how it all works out in the third book!
Second in the Delphi Trilogy, Chris Everheart’s The Delphi Deception starts where book one left off, but includes just enough nicely woven backstory to make it perfectly readable on its own. Of course, the ending’s a serious cliff-hanger, but enough questions are answered and mysteries solved to make the story satisfying on its own. And book III is coming soon—I hope! The story’s told in a convincing teen voice as Zach struggles against the system, eager to save the girl he accidentally led into trouble, and reluctant to trust anyone. His mistrust is not unfounded. Ashley’s growing sicker in the hospital. Her treacherous sister’s growing more ambitious. And the mysterious Larry remains an enigmatic mix of helpful and weird. A boy seeking purpose, a girl speaking in riddles, hidden identity, and the historical oracles of Delphi all combine in a tale that blends modern science with ancient myth and leaves a seventeen-year-old to understand the poetry of a prophet. The Delphi Deception is a fast exciting tale with great characters, fascinating plot, and a beautifully imagined small-town, large-world location. Book one starts the story with a perfect sense of intrigue. This book continues it, bringing Zach closer to finding his purpose in life. And I can’t wait for book three. Disclosure: I was offered a free copy and I offer my honest review.
