I had a bit of trouble when I first started reading Oracles of Delphi by Marie Savage. I've read historical fiction before, but I struggled with pronunciation and several unfamiliar words/spellings that I had to look up early on in the story. That being said, this book held my attention with its high level of suspense and rich details. I really loved the character of Althaia. She was smart, head-strong and well ahead of her time. She is sassy and not afraid to say what is on her mind, even if that is going to garner her some strange looks or comments. The murder mystery unfolds very early in the story and pulls you right into the story. Overall, I enjoyed the book, though it took me longer to read than other books. I would read another book by this author. I received a book for an honest review. My opinion was not influenced by this.
