The most evocative, engaging, and visually arresting characters I have ever encountered." Al Hatman, Author

"This superbly written story seems to get better with each turn of the page. The amount of emotion converted into written word leaves a person begging for more even after the last page is turned. On to book three with very high expectations."  Amazon Review

Symbolon: Noun [sim-boh-luhn] 1)  Soul mates. 

The name "Symbolon" came from a discussion in Plato's Symposium about a play by Aristophanes and refers to soul mates.

The actual interpretation has to do with two-headed, eight-limbed creatures that were cut in half and cursed to roam the world alone, never feeling complete. Did I mention that Aristophanes was a comic playwright?

The Symbolon refers to Alex and Valeria as soul mates and is really the love story of the trilogy. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Ms. Colvin does it again! From start to finish, I was moved by the emotionally charged story that unfolds. As book 2 of a trilogy, the author did an artistic job of taking you deeper into the world of the immortals where I found myself falling more in love with Alex and Valeria as well as cheering on new character who unseemingly vies for the reader's affection. Throughout the book, Ms. Colvin planted well-placed seeds of intrigue keeping me curious to find answers/explanations in book 3 without detracting from the beautiful story of book 2. This book doesn't stand alone like book 1 does, but by this point, the release of book 3 is eagerly anticipated by oracle fans who want to see love conquer and the rearing head of jealousy, greed, and evil beheaded with justice.

If you read book one of Delia's The Sibylline Trilogy, The Sibylline Oracle, and loved it, you will not be disappointed with The Symbolon. It's hard, because I hate when reviewers spoil it for readers and give the main plot away, but there are just some things that must be mentioned. And The Symbolon is all about finally *trying* to get these two soul mates (Alex & Valeria), the symbolons, together -- this time, forever. And they are so close. The only thing that stands in their way is approval from a council of immortals for an immortal marriage, and a pesky former marriage of Alex's, which proves to be more of a nuisance than he could ever have imagined. The roller coaster adventure that takes off after an explosive and heart-wrenching council meeting sets the tone for the book - which is unfulfilled love, frustration, hope, and life-endangering plotting. These two lovers still yearn for their other half and will do ANYTHING to have a chance to come together, forever, once and for all. In this second novel, we become better acquainted with new characters and more answers are revealed about Alex's history, immortals, oracles, and as always, with the flair of Greek Mythology plus modern day romance. I love how well Delia can build out a scene and really make you feel like you are right there, holding your breath, waiting for the outcome. These are characters you will get emotionally attached to and will yearn to read their conclusion in her upcoming debut of The Last oracle. An excellent trilogy that is so unique and for the die hard romantic at heart.

*Disclaimer: I am Delia's copy editor, however, I am first and foremost a reader. I am not paid by Delia to review her books, my job does not depend on it, and nor has she ever asked me to review one of her books. I am reviewing this book as a reader ONLY and these opinions are my own. Thank you kindly for understanding!*

I couldn't wait to start book 2 of the trilogy. You do think to yourself just how will the author continue the story from the first book......oh boy she does a great job!!

The book started with a bit of a shock, especially knowing about Alex's undying love for Cassandra, it did surprise me but then you learn it was in the past.

So the moment has finally come for the soul mates Alex and Cassandra to marry but before they do they have to meet in front of the council of immortals for permission. This means they have to prove that Cassandra is now immortal which thankfully they do but things do not go plan, evil selfish forces are against their marriage.

What will happen? Who can they trust? Not everything is as it seems......

I'm not going to give any more away, you will have to enjoy reading the twists and turns throughout the story yourself just like I did and it will keep you hooked. When you think that they have finally reached the light at the end of the desperate tunnel the author weaves her magic again and your left holding your breath for the next installment!!

Where the first book, the Sibylline, started off painfully slow, it ended wanting me to eagerly read the next book, The Symbolon. The Symbolon did not disappoint!! All three books are lovely written with very believable characters. Well done, Ms. Colvin!!!

I was absorbed in the on going development of star crossed lovers, but antagonized by Valeria.s manipulation and her acceptance of it. I really dislike the idea that a woman would accept a man who had torn her world apart. The author keeps your attention all the way through and hopefully will answer unresolved issues in the next volume.

The Symbolon, Book 2, was a much better book than Book 1. The story line wasn't choppy and the characters were well developed. The only complaint I have is the use of any profanity. The profanity seems added as if to get an "adult" rating for her book which stands just fine on its own. The books opens with Alex and Valeria planning their wedding, and Ms. Colvin is excellent in pulling the reader into the beautiful, romantic Italian countryside, and expressing the depth of love between the main characters. At the same time she keeps the story well paced so that it doesn't become dull. However, Alex and Valeria's relationship is greatly stained in this book when they are denied their marriage request. Not only are they denied, but the immortal council charges they should be separated forever. We see an all too human Valeria at her lowest, suffering grief being separated from her Symbolon, nearly to the point of death. She manages great strength, courage, and faith in her love for Alex by the end of the book which enhances her character. If I were Valeria, and knew I was once someone else (Cassandra), and not certain if my enemy (Aegemon) was still alive or not, I would have been learning everything I could about my past, the Greek gods, their laws, and Alex's past as soon as I had the strength after leaving the hospital. Her experience from the first book should have given her a desire to be more "prepared." Still this was an engaging story and I look forward to reading Book 3 soon.
