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.

    " This is another fantasy series that will remind the reader a bit of the Percy Jackson series. Two orphans living in an orphanage near the Cliffs of Dover find they are to fulfill prophesies that were written long ago in ancient Greece. The book starts off with a bang and lots of action. There were some sections of the book that seemed to drag a bit, but overall I found it to be very imaginative and a fast, fun read. "

    " Definitely better than Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Not sure if I can identify it as better than all other Harry Potter books. However, this is the beginning of a series and time will tell. "

    " "Oracles of Delphi Keep" was a particularly frustrating read because, while an interesting concept, most of the first 200 pages were pure infodumping on the author's part and the characters weren't engaging enough to keep my attention from wandering during the first half of the book. I'm usually a fairly fast reader, but "Oracles" took me ages to finish because I had to keep putting it down because it was terribly boring. The book does pick up quite a bit in the back half and I really got into the storyline within the last 100 pages. It ends on an fairly intriguing cliffhanger, so hopefully the author will be able to keep the momentum going with the sequel. "

    " right from the beginning I was kept on edge and in suspense. "
