The Delphi Effect by Rysa Walker

30439157Spectacle, 2016.

Anna Morgan’s got voices in her head, but they’re not a sign of mental illness, they’re ghosts who take up residence. Anna doesn’t seem to have a choice about picking up these hitchhikers, and they’re darned persistent, expecting her to give last messages to their loved ones or finish business they didn’t complete.

Anna doesn’t love her special skill, but she’s used to it, and she’s learned how to achieve what she needs to to help her hitchhikers pass on. She thought she had, anyway, until a hitchhiker with a particularly gruesome death gets Anna wrapped up with other kids with super powers and a secret government operation.

Not simply a fast-paced, high stakes thriller, The Delphi Effect has strong, but sympathetic characters, a mystery larger than the first book, a huge helping of personal loyalty, and a sprinkle of romance — all the things that make for a satisfying read. These books are not for the violence adverse, but they’re a great read for anyone who likes an engaging read. I’m looking forward to books two and three in the series!

I read an electronic advance reader copy of The Delphi Effect courtesy of NetGalley and the author in exchange for an honest review.
