1 thought on “Oracles of Delphi”
Although the premise of this series seems great and exciting, I can’t bring myself to recommend these books to children. I agree with the article above in that the pacing of the books is pretty slow. I don’t think a lot of young readers would be captivated enough to read the whole thing.
The story seems to break halfway though the series, and the final book feels incomplete and kind of like a betrayal to the reader, who put a lot of time in to get to the end of the story.
