Book Review: The Delphi Effect by Rysa Walker

Publish Date: October 11, 2016
379 Pages [Kindle edition]
Published by Skyscape


It’s never wise to talk to strangers…and that goes double when they’re dead. Unfortunately, seventeen-year-old Anna Morgan has no choice. Resting on a park bench, touching the turnstile at the Metro station—she never knows where she’ll encounter a ghost. These mental hitchhikers are the reason Anna has been tossed from one foster home and psychiatric institution to the next for most of her life.

When a chance touch leads her to pick up the insistent spirit of a girl who was brutally murdered, Anna is pulled headlong into a deadly conspiracy that extends to the highest levels of government. Facing the forces behind her new hitcher’s death will challenge the barriers, both good and bad, that Anna has erected over the years and shed light on her power’s origins. And when the covert organization seeking to recruit her crosses the line by kidnapping her friend, it will discover just how far Anna is willing to go to bring it down.

My Thoughts:
I was gifted an ebook via Netgalley.
I read part of this and listened to part of it on audiobook. From the switch from my old Kindle to the new one, this Netgalley book got lost in the mix, so I borrowed via Kindle Unlimited. The audio narrator was wonderful and I just got so sucked into this book that I couldn't read/listen fast enough.

The Delphi Effect follows an orphan named Anna who has the ability to pick up spirits with unfinished business. Her newest spirit is Molly, who wants to help her Pa find her killer. Along the way, Anna realizes that this goes much further than a simple homicide.

Like I said, I got sucked in. This is such a well-written novel. The premise is super interesting and I love how Anna's paranormal ability was done. The intricacies of it are just so fascinating. I cannot wait to read or listen to the second book in preparation for the final book to be released this fall.
