Description
Delphi Keep is awash in activity, and for Ian, Theo, and Carl, their safe haven might be nearing its end. The Royal Navy has taken the keep to use as a hospital and the tunnels running under the keep and the castle are ideal to set up a central communications outpost for the approaching war. The earl is happy to help the effort, but now the keep is no longer safe for the orphans and they must be evacuated to his winter residence.
Ian, Theo, and Carl know that if they're sent away, they'll no longer be protected. But more important than their safety is deciphering the third prophecy. All clues point to a quest. The orphans don't know where they must go, but they know they must rescue the Secret Keeper.
To do that, however, they need to work out who this Secret Keeper is. And what, exactly are the secrets he's keeping?

        December 15, 2011
        The third episode in Laurie's muddled Oracles of Delphi Keep series adds two more children with super powers, bringing the total to five of the prophesied seven (plus One) who will save the world from the satanic Demogorgon. Following one of a series of obscure prophecies left by an ancient seer, Ian, with his fellow orphans of "the United" and adult chaperones, arrive in Paris on a rescue mission just as the invading Nazis do. There they hook up with more cast members--notably Adrastus the Secret Keeper, a Phoenician soldier charged with depositing the prophecies and various items of magical gear in hidden places for the United to seek out. The children survive bomb attacks, fend off Caphiera the Cold and Atroposa the Terrible (two of Demogorgon's four evil offspring) and return without much difficulty to England. Then it's off to Berchtesgaden to round up Wolfgang, an abused lad who can read and control people's thoughts (except when inconvenient to the plot), and battle Demogorgon's minions some more. The author fills in some background with flashbacks but mostly assumes that readers will have a general picture of the quest and characters from past volumes. As before, she relies heavily on oracular visions, overheard conversations and coincidental meetings to move events along, and she seldom strays far from conventional gender roles for her characters. A confusing tangle of myth and history, slow going to boot, despite corpses and bombs aplenty. (Fantasy. 10-14)

        July 1, 2012
        This third installment assumes readers' familiarity with the earlier volumes in this convoluted, confusing series. The combination of World War II history with ancient prophecy fails to gel, and the main characters continue to be defined by their superpowers rather than by any more-sophisticated character development.
