Review: Oracles, Demons, and a quest for the silver treasure boxes! This is what Oracles of Delphi Keep; book two, The Curse of Dead Man's Forest by Victoria Laurie is all about.
In this book 13 year-old orphan Ian Wigby and his fellow orphans, Carl and Theo, must enter a magical portal that sends them to who-knows-where to find the next oracle that has magical healing powers. But an ancient prophecy warns that if the three friends enter the portal, Ian will meet his impending doom! But when a great evil enters the keep, the three friends must figure out if risking Ian's life is worth finding the third oracle and healing all the children in the keep.
This is a great novel full of face-paced action, well-developed characters, and never-ending suspense. This book is very interesting, and very exiting. I just couldn't put it down! After I read the ending I turned the page expecting to find the next chapter waiting for me. I rate this book a five out of five. I rate the book this because I love anything having to do with mythology and this book is full of it! I love how right in the beginning it starts out with action. For example: "Something large and cone-like was zigzagging back and forth across the horizon." And "It's a cyclone!"
