Quest for the Secret Keeper by Victoria Laurie
This is the third in the Oracles of Delphi Keep series. I've read all three and they are all good reads.
Delacorte Press sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you). It was published in February, so you can find a copy at your local bookstore. If you haven't heard about this series before, I'd suggest getting all the books for your young reader. This is a series that grabs your attention and makes you want to see how things are going to work out. There's plenty of excitement in each book.
In this story Ian, Theo and Carl find they can no longer remain in the keep. Soldiers have taken it over for the injured who need medical attention. This means that they will have to move to the winter house, which is not as safe as the keep.
Ian gets accused of being a spy, they end with gods walking the earth with them, and the danger is always present. The ones from the past have knowledge they can't share. The children are trying to follow the prophecy but aren't sure how to interpret it. Time is running out; will they complete their quest?
