Smashwords – The Delphic Oracles in Egypt and New York – a book by PanOrpheus
Still, I kept looking for some tension in the story and there really was none. The author was inventive and came up with the makings of a great story, but unfortunately it reads rather dry. Still, I was charmed, and yes, entertained. An interesting premise, mostly ancient history with mythology but there was also a smattering of magical objects and time travel.
The largely dialogue based prose, told rather than showed, failed to give a sense of the environment. I also found the c An interesting premise, mostly ancient history with mythology but there was also a smattering of magical objects and time travel. Certain stylistic choices of the author brought me out of the book, such as the constant use of — instead of commas and an over enthusiasm for exclamation marks, plus often failing to start a new line whenever a new person starts speaking. I'd advise reading the 'look inside' before buying to see if the style suits you.

It has as its main characters Pythagoras, who was a mathematician and philosopher, and Theoclea, the fictional Delphic Oracle. The book is a real page turner: mysterious, magical and mesmerising. It has been meticulously researched, the author is clearly very much at home in this time period. The ending is a surprise and left me wanting more.
