Anna Morgan has spent her life bouncing from home to home with some time out on the streets in between ever since she was abandoned as a toddler with a note claiming she was possessed. As Anna got older she has since learned she has an unusual ability to pick up ghostly hitchhikers. If she comes across a restless spirit and touches whatever object they are hanging onto she ends up with them inhabiting her body which can sometimes become a struggle for her to keep control herself.
When Anna picks up the spirit of Molly, a young girl that was brutally murdered, Molly does her best to convince Anna to contact her grandfather who had been a police man. Molly is tormented by the fact that her killer was involved in human trafficking and will most definitely be hurting other young women unless Molly can get Anna to help stop him.
The Delphi Effect is an extremely action packed adventure from start to finish with numerous paranormal elements along with some science fiction mixed into an intense thrill ride. This series is classified young adult but I would say with this one the characters and action seemed more on the mature side than a typical young adult read.
The story starts off with Anna’s ability to speak with ghosts but as the book goes on many many other things are added into the mix. There’s clairvoyance, psychic abilities, telekinesis and on and on. Along with moving from revenge for murder into a much bigger conspiracy involved. So much to keep one’s attention this one certainly broke the typical young adult mold.
Overall, a great start to this series with a bit of a cliffhanger ending to bring the excitement up for the next in the series.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
