The Delphi Effect (The Delphi Trilogy)
By Rysa Walker
Rating: 4/5 Stairs
I read The Chronos Files trilogy by Rysa Walker this year (hoping to get a review up in the next few days – spoiler it’s time travel and I loved it!), so picking up her new Delphi Trilogy was a no-brainer for me.
The Delphi Effect is the first book in this new trilogy, which starts out as a bit of a ghost story. Seventeen year old Anna is an orphan, and has an unusual ability. She picks up hitchhiking ghosts. Sometimes when she touches an object, she will unknowingly pick up a ghost, which hangs around in her body until it gets it’s unfinished business completed. Once the ghost moves on, Anna keeps their knowledge behind as part of herself, including reliving how they died.
When we meet Anna, she’s sharing space with Molly – a girl close to Anna’s age, who was murdered. Attempting to contact Molly’s grandfather to give him a message, Anna unknowingly sets off a chain of events that will put her life and those she loves most in danger. You know I like to keep things spoiler-free, so that’s all I’ll say about that.
The Delphi Effect is a fun read. The characters are interesting, and the story a page turner. There’s something for everyone – sci-fi, mystery, romance, supernatural. Ms. Walker has once again set up an engaging trilogy and I look forward to seeing what is next for Anna and company.
Many thanks to NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
