Book Description

The gripping Delphi Trilogy continues with Book II, The Delphi Deception, plunging readers deeper into a dark world of conspiracy and danger.
A desperate teen, a dangerous alliance, an ancient foe. After ten years in hiding 17-year-old Zach made the mistake of returning to his wealthy hometown. He slammed head-on into the conspiracy that killed his parents, drove a childhood friend to suicide, and exploits teens to fulfill an ancient agenda of greed. Zach should have run. But he stayed, and now the consequences are burying him.
His blind pursuit of the town’s deepest secrets has left him injured and terrified. The answers he’s gotten about his true identity are more disturbing than he could have imagined. And his first love, Ashley, is in more danger than ever.
Zach’s desperate plan to save his crumbling world is derailed by the mysterious man he thought was his ally. Forced to team with Ashley’s ambitious sister who’ll help—for a price—he enters an alliance fraught with deception and betrayal.
As the League of Delphi’s vicious new security chief closes in on him, Zach is propelled back into the jaws of danger by a cryptic command from beyond this world. Will his misguided mission save Ashley? Or will it get them both killed?

5.0 out of 5 stars Edge of your seat thriller! October 3, 2013
By shelli
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The second book did not disappoint! It was an action packed story that had me on the edge of my chair. The story is so well written that I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to find out what happens next. It has twists and turns that you don't see coming. I can't wait to see what happens next to Zach and Ashley. If you haven't tried the first book The League of Delphi, go get it so you can get started on this journey into this secret society that has this town locked up tight, supposedly.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Second Helping of Everything June 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the second of the Delphi books and starts up immediately where the first one ended at a semi-cliffhanger. You don't have to have read the first volume to read this one, but it sure helps on a lot of levels. The author takes great pains here in the first few chapters to summarize the earlier action and to bring the reader up to speed. This is great for someone who has read the first book because it very effectively reminds the reader of everything that happened in the first book. It would be possible to get enough from the recap if you hadn't read the first book, but it's just cryptic and bare bones enough that that would be a challenge. Perhaps more importantly, the first book was devoted heavily to establishing Arcanville, the main characters, and the mounting sense of dread and danger surrounding the heroes. That was a lot of the fun, and that scary thrilling mood is what helped readers overlook some awfully bumpy plotting. Without that background this second book could come across as pretty flat.

As it is, this second book goes back over a lot of familiar ground. Lots of places are revisited and lots of old characters are reintroduced. For a vast conspiracy we sure spend a great deal of time in a physically and emotionally and dramatically confined space. That said, a new untrustworthy, smart and devious major played is introduced in this book and she introduces new energy and unexpected complications that do move the story in some new directions. We also get a new bad guy, some unexpected twists and turns, and a number of surprises.

The upshot for me is that the book is sort of a classic middle-of-three. Everything is moved along and the final act is set up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pulse Pounding YA Fun! January 28, 2014
By Wendell
Format:Kindle Edition
This second installment of the Delphi Trilogy picks up right where The League of Delphi ended. For those who have not read the first novel, here is a brief synopsis of what you missed.

Zach White is your average 16-year-old kid. Just a normal teenager really. He loves his laptop, really digs girls, and has several close friends he adores - even if they are computer hackers. Unfortunately, Zach’s life is not normal, and it has not been normal in a long while.

It didn’t start off this way, you see. As a child, Zach’s life was very normal: mom, dad, school, and friends. He lived in a small town called Arcanville. A town of tidy neatness and polite people. A place with seemingly no crime, filled with homes surrounded by uniform walls and gardens. A hamlet that was more likely to have been the subject of one of Norman Rockwell’s paintings than to be a place he would have to flee from. But once his father died in an airplane crash, Zach and his mother did indeed leave this idyllic local, vanishing into the night, and once they arrived in Europe, his mother had immediately enrolled Zach in a French boarding school under a false name and disappeared, only visiting him sporadically and for short periods of time. Her reason for all this that she was protecting him from the people who were looking for him. People that she could not let find him. These people are why they had left Arcanville. These people were why they had to each live a false life and do without any family. And these people were why he must never ever return to Arcanville no matter what!

Like any good teenager, Zach didn’t understand what was going on with his mother. Oh, she said all this cloak and dagger stuff was for his own protection, but how did he know that was true?

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast Paced Read! October 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The League of Delphi was a really fast paced read that had me quickly turning pages to see what happened next! The chapters were short, which really helped set the pace properly. The story is told in one of my favorite ways -- you just leap right into the story and get the character history when you need it. This book also had the bonus of being set after a major event happened, which only grabbed my attention even more! Love it!

This second installment of the Delphi Trilogy follows "Zach" around as he tries to get a grip on the life that has begun spiraling out of control. There's a good dose of secrets, betrayal, and oracles to keep him on his toes. I was a little worried that a book lacking the usual players in the YA paranormal romance game (i.e. shifters, vampires, etc + some "girl moving to a new town") wouldn't keep my interest, but I was pleasantly surprised by this unique tale.

I can't wait to see what happens in the rest of the trilogy, especially considering where this book left us!

More About the Author

A recovering reluctant reader turned award-winning author, I try to infuse every book - for young readers and adults alike - with a visual storytelling style that keeps the reader on the edge of their seats and turning pages.

Fifty percent of my childhood was spent staring out a classroom window, wondering what was going on "out there." I daydreamed about interesting places, fascinating people and exciting adventures.

As a reluctant and struggling young reader, my hunger for stories was fed mostly by TV and movies. I still haven't read all the classics (I promise I will eventually). PRIDE AND PREJUDICE wasn't on my reading list as a kid. But I distinctly remember going to the drive-in movies with my dad and little brother and seeing SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT for the first time! I wanted to LIVE in a world where a Trans Am really could jump a creek from a collapsed bridge and keep tooling down a dirt road away from the county mounties.

In high school, though, I was lucky enough to be inspired by a dedicated teacher to read and connect to the arts and humanities. It opened up a world that I might otherwise never have known. I went on to study art and anthropology/archaeology in New Mexico and Minnesota and traveled throughout the lower-48, Western Canada and Alaska. My jobs have included: archaeological illustrator; art gallery manager; motion picture/TV/indy film crew, writer, director and actor; waiter; maitre d; pool boy; slime line worker (people who've worked in an Alaskan fishery know what this is).

While working at an ad agency, I started writing my first book - a political thriller - because I needed to express my passion for stories but couldn't afford to go to film school. It stuck. I found that story is always lurking just below the surface of my conscious mind, so writing fiction comes very naturally to me. I got a contract to write action/adventure books for young readers and found it so easy and fun to write to my 12-year-old self (ref: "reluctant and struggling reader" above).

So I write for young readers and grown ups alike - short stories, novels, chapter books, graphic novels. I still love daydreaming about interesting places, fascinating people and exciting adventures. But window gazing has gotten even better - because today I get to share my daydreams with you. Enjoy!

Some of my past endeavors that prove how easily distracted I am: Award winning writer (Moonbeam, 2009); award-winning filmmaker (Shamrock Film Festival, 2008; Secret City Film Festival 2010); actor (various independent productions); former archaeological illustrator (Maxwell Museum of Anthropology), exhibits specialist and art gallery manager; continental traveler.
