Kids at The Shelf Review: Oracles of Delphi Keep by Victoria Laurie


Title: Oracles of Delphi Keep
Author: Victoria Laurie
Reading level: 9-12 young adult
Rating: 4/5

Ian Wigby is about to find out that he is a very special boy.

Along the southern coast of England, atop the White Cliffs of Dover, stands a castle. And at that castle’s old keep is an orphanage. Delphi Keep has seen many youngsters come and go through its gates, and Ian Wigby and his sister, Theodosia, are happy to call it home. Life has always been simple at the Keep, and the orphanage safe, until one day, Ian and Theo find a silver treasure box. And within the box, a prophesy. Three thousand years ago a great Greek oracle wrote of a quest. A quest on which the fate of the world depends. A quest that names two children—Ian and Theodosia. Suddenly Delphi Keep is no longer safe. And Ian and Theo, along with a very special group of friends, realize they must unravel the meaning behind the scroll of Dover cavern before darkness falls on the world. And before an unfathomable evil catches up with them.

Grace's Review:
I loved this book (well I like anything that’s young adult and has to do with ancient Greek, Roman, or Egypt myths or history), but anyway this book is amazing. There are three books. I want to share this book with you it has evil sorcerers, oracles, friendship, magic, and prophecies. This is a book that is great for trips (as long as you bring the second and third book as well). I read this book in one day I got it from my local library and read it. I couldn’t put it down until I found out what happened then I grabbed the second book and started reading it to. It is great if you need a book to read. Also it is an AR book for those who need to read those books for school. So, all I’m saying is you should read this book.
