My Review:

Having read Julie Anderson’s Plague, I was excited to catch up with Cassandra Fortune and see how she recovered from the traumatic ending of the story. In Oracle, we find her arriving at Delphi in Greece on a mission from the Prime Minster of England.  The setting is wonderfully described but I had to geek out and google the Temple of Apollo and surrounding countryside to get the full effect. Once again, Cassie is involved in solving a murder. The case is complex and slowly unwinds with lots of clues and questions. There are more twists, turns and unexpected revelations in this story than the path leading to the Corycian Cave and they will keep readers guessing until the unexpected end. The characters are all well drawn with loads of hidden agendas and personal secrets that keep Cassie guessing. The plot is tight, the pace is fast, the story well written and edited. I enjoyed the historical aspects of the story as well as the modern day geo-political concerns. I am sure this is not the last we’ve heard of Anderson’s Cassie Fortune and I look forward to more of her adventures.

My Rating: I give this book 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
