Oracles of Delphi Keep The Curse of Deadman's Forest, by Victoria Laurie, ISBN978-0-385-73573-5, Delacorte Press, review by ellen george

 

 

 

Yes, I am a huge fan of Victoria Laurie's. She has shown her versatility by writing three series that in themselves are interesting and entertaining, and that, I can tell you, as a fledgling writer myself, is no small feat. 

Ms. Laurie's second offering in her Oracles of Delphi Keep - The Curse of Deadman's Forest continues where its debut stopped.

In ancient Phoenicia, a talented and good prophetess writes of young people in our current time to help them from dark forces taking over the world. Those children are Ian Wigby and Theodosia in England. Through finding magical portals in Dover, prophecies that fortell of dangerous and wondrous things. It is up to the group to help deter the bad from happening.

With the help of gentry in an estate nearby, they start their destiny.

This second entry continues the magic, and the chemistry of all the characters. Although there is a shadow that Ian's life is in peril, how can the children and their adult friends not go on with their quest to help the world?

Ms. Laurie writes with such ease that kids of all ages enjoy and cannot stop turning pages to see what will happen next.

Then comes the end of the book and you cannot believe you have to wait until the next entry! Aarg!

If you haven't jumped on board with this series, do yourself a favor and read this series. It is based on stories told by Victoria Laurie's grandfather, and as I said in the first novel's review, he is mighty proud of her.

Well done!
