About the Author
Rysa Walker is the author of the bestselling CHRONOS Files series. Timebound, the first book in the series, was the Young Adult and Grand Prize winner of the 2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award.
Rysa grew up on a cattle ranch in the South, where she was a voracious reader. On the rare occasions when she gained control of the television, she watched Star Trek and imagined living in the future, on distant planets, or at least in a town big enough to have a stoplight.
She currently lives in North Carolina, where she is working on the next installment in The Delphi Trilogy. If you see her on social media, please tell her to get back to her Writing Cave.

[Full disclosure: I received an advanced reviewers copy from Netgalley for an honest review.]
The inevitable comparison to X-Men will come to mind. This is grittier, with no Professor Xavier or estate to save the day (at least, not yet). Their abilities are not writ large with any purely physical differences – this is a largely mental game with some physical consequences. So no bright spandex outfits or funky hairdos (OK, there’s Deo but he’s “normal”), but lots of inner turmoil.
I’ve previously reviewed Risa Walker’s Chronos Files series, and as you can see from my reviews, they were outstanding. I honestly think her writing has become even better. There’s a sense in which I feel enveloped in the story. I’m not outside of it, enjoying the story but as a spectator. Somehow, I feel like I’m a part of The Delphi Effect. It’s like Anna, if not a friend, is at least an acquaintance for whom I care.
In The Delphi Effect, we have a gripping story with an empathetic heroine, a well-done setting, with the compelling characters and powerful, wicked bad guys. We also have a well-completed phase of this series, but it’s definitely a series, which is to say there’s a bit of a cliffhanger at the ending. I highly recommend The Delphi Effect for your reading pleasure. It’s available tomorrow, October 11th! [A note about the audiobook version: while I haven’t heard the book yet, Kate Rudd is one of my favorite narrators, who always give an admirable performance. So, if audiobooks are your thing, I’m confidant in recommending this one despite not having heard it yet.]
Full review at Joe's Geekfest on Wordpress
After loving Rysa Walker's Chronos Files I was thrilled to read The Delphi Effect. I loved the paranormal aspects and Anna charmed me from the start.
Anna has an unusual gift (or gifts), which, whilst I found intruding, have landed her in all manner of trouble. She communicates with ghosts in a very unexpected way. These spirits take over her body to share their demands and memories with her. This is both dangerous and traumatic for Anna. She finds herself becoming more and more susceptible to the ghosts and their will. She battles losing herself whilst trying to help them.
I liked her friendship with Deo who was always fabulous. I also appreciated her determination to help Molly considering the big risks. Some of the truths she uncovers are very upsetting and may be a little too dark for younger readers.
There's nothing quite like some super sassy characters to bring out the charm in a big old YA mystery...
4 Stars in my Sky!

I'm glad that I requested this book to review, because this story is just so very easy to get lost in,even with the number of characters concerned (both alive and dead!)
All the characters have their own unique voice and quirks, and the interpersonal relationships which develop are dealt with in a touching, and at times, tentative way, which underscores the trust issues which Anna has with others.
This book is very fast paced,and the narrative never felt bogged down with unnecessary detail. I felt that really helped the reader to get caught up in the events unfolding in the story.
Would I read the next in the series? Definitely.
