    1. In 1232 BC, Laodamia of Phoenicia, the Oracle of Delphi, is dying in Morocco. She gives her bronze cuffs to the Carthaginian General Adrastus because they activate the portal for the United. Laodamia is about to die, so makes the general her Secret Keeper and swears him to delivering boxes of secrets and marrying Adria. Fast forward to 1940, where the orphan Ian is mourning the death of the man with whom his mother left him before he ended up in the Delphi Keep orphanage. Ian has other worries-- [...]

    2. This series is positively epic. I can't believe the depth and complexity of the characters and storyline, yet it remains middle-grade friendly. For readers who love books like the Narnia series and Deltora Quest, this is a perfect fit. Quest for the Secret Keeper is the third book in the Delphi Keep series, and it moves the plot forward brilliantly. I continue to grow more and more attached to the characters and their efforts to fulfill the prophecies. I also appreciate the use of historical det [...]

    3. Ah, the bittersweet ending of the third -- and, apparently, the lats -- installment in the marvelous Oracles of Delphi series. It sorts of ties of some mysteries and loose ends, but it clearly was not supposed to be the end. Yet, we have learned, much to our sadness and regret, that there are to be no more books in the series. Even so, the three books that are available are well written and worth reading. A fantastic literary world, an exciting story line, and a number of endearing characters. W [...]

    4. MontanaLibrary2GoGood news and bad news. The third book in the series, and I've noticed that the series seems to be written with the intent that readers grow with the characters. This was a relatively new idea when the Harry Potter series did it, the first book being written for an 11 year old audience and the successive books getting both more challenging and more adult as the characters grew older. In this third book of the Oracles of Delphi Keep the story deals with Nazis, war, senseless and [...]

    5. This is an adventure book with lots and lots of amazing characters like Caphiera and Atroposa the evil twins who are looking for the Secret Keeper, their brother, and Ian, Carl and the rest of Delphi Keep Orphanage. Vocab. to understand.Sundial- The way people back in the day told time with or in this story a magical trinket.Jacks- it is a game played with little pointy things and a ball often not played in this time period.Trinket- It is a small item that can be used to help you find something [...]

    6. Ian Wigby is a Guardian, the “One”. The leader of a group of children, called the United, each with special abilities who are on a quest to find a number of prophecies in silver boxes hidden both in time and space by the Secret Keeper following the instructions of the Oracle of Delphi. Using portals to travel and a magical sundial to locate the lost objects, they retrieve the boxes. Each box has a prophecy with instructions on how to find the next box. If the United do not succeed, then the [...]

    7. After two excellent predecessors, the third book in the Oracles of Delphi Keep series was a disappointment. It seemed as if someone else were writing parts of the book in a totally different style. Some of the characters behaved in a contrived and totally nonsensical fashion, which is not Victoria Laurie's trademark.Despite that observation, the pace was quick and it was a page turner, and a definite cliff hanger for the fourth and presumably final book of the seriesEVER, the BIGGEST disappointm [...]

    8. Sfpl friends, owned,The writing is pretty good, but the author is falling into the trap of assuming a reader has read the entire series and not giving basic explanations of some things. For example, 100 pages in we have physical descriptions of exactly two characters - the protagonist (because another character mentioned some physical traits in dialogue) and a character that was first introduced in this book. It's very possible that the author just doesn't think about such descriptions in genera [...]

    9. I really liked this book, even more than its predecessors. By now I'm used to the over described elements, and the plot and characters are very appealing. There aren't a lot of books that show what it would have been like to be in Paris at the time of the amazing invasion, and it did this really well, I thought. Very upset to learn publisher Delacorte won't commit to finishing off the series. Only one more book left, but if they are unwilling, I don't know why agent Jim McCarthy and author Lauri [...]

    10. Oh my gosh, YES! Fans of Rick Riordan, you will not be disappointed in this series. I haven't been this reluctant to put a book down since forever! I can't wait for the next installment!Edit:I just learned the author is not planning on continuing this series. I'm really sad that I will not see any more of the Secret Keeper's adventures. I hope Laurie, in the future, finds it in her heart to continue the story for the many fans of this excellent series.

    11. This book was amazing! I absolutely loved it! I was so happy with the ending It was nice to finally know who Ian's parents were!It made it even better because I've been waiting for almost a year and a half!EDIT: I can't believe the fourth (and final I might add) will not be published! I am so upset!

    12. Third in the Oracles of Delphi Keep series. Ian, Theo, Carl and others continue to try to follow the scroll prophecies left for them by Laodamia. They visit Paris just as the German soldiers take the city. They visit Germany through the portal. They must find the Thinker.Ian wonders who his parents are and clarity comes by the end of the book.

    13. Good book, plenty of action and adventure. This is Book 3 in the Oracles of Delphi Keep series. I would have given it 4 stars but I got lost in places--I'd read Book 1 last year, hadn't read Book 2, and clearly missed large portions of the plot by not reading that one. Good for boys about 4th grade and up who are good readers, but I would recommend reading the series in order.

    14. Good bookI liked this book because it was very inspiring and it shows a different way to look at the world. I chose a 5/5 rating because it was a very good book. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves an adventure

    15. Really loving this series! I wasn't super sold after the first one due to the books foray into historical events because history isn't my thing but I have to say they have turned out to be delightful! I would absolutely recommend this series to anyone who likes a fun adventure.

    16. There will not be a 4th book, since the publisher nixed it. So this is it folks =(victorialaurie/newsletter.

    17. I keep reading this series to see if the author can keep to the main story line but so far she hasn't. Lots of adventure that doesn't help the main story move along.

    18. I loved this book. I've loved the series. I am SO disappointed that the publisher/author/whoever has decided not to do the last book in the series. I'll be left hanging forever.

    19. This book is amazing, at points I just wanted to huddle up and cry, but at others I wanted to shut out the rest of the world!

    20. Great series!I've very much enjoyed reading this series! It is very exciting and keeps me reading. I hope I don't have to wait very long for book 4!
