The Delphi Revolution by Rysa Walker is the third and final installment of the young adult science fiction fantasy The Delphi Trilogy series. This series involves many different elements in the story such as clairvoyance, psychic abilities, telekinesis and on and on. In the first book of the series readers were introduced to Anna Morgan who had 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 ...more

It is with great reluctance that I say goodbye to Anna, Deo, Aaron, Taylor, and Daniel as The Delphi Trilogy wraps up with this final book in the series. Rysa Walker really knocked my socks off a few times with some mind boggling twists and turns... Again! She's really really good at that, by the way!!

In The Delphi Revolution, we meet back up with Anna and the Scooby Do gang several months after the end of book 2. The gang now lives at the beach along with a group of adepts rescued during the la

Solid conclusion, but I wanted more. It seemed like there was a lot of telling rather than showing, a lot of explanation and history given when I wanted more from the characters and more action. And then the final battle/showdown...uh, anticlimactic, to say the least? I still recommend this series and the author is an auto-buy for me.

Anna.. Anna... freaking Anna!

The Delphi Revolution is the third, and last, installment of The Delphi Trilogy. Anna kind of frustrated me a bit here and there.. but overall the pace of this book just through me off. It felt like a never-ending story and I just wanted it to end.

Anna helping out her friendly ghost encounter Molly was interesting. Mostly because of what happened to Molly. However, I just feel like something was missing in this book. The action was okay but did nothing for me. The wh

This was the conclusion to the Delphi trilogy and I remembered that I had previously enjoyed the two previous books. I will admit though, that it took me a while to remember exactly what the previous two books were about. Once I remembered the previous two books, the beginning of this book was a bit confusing. It wasn't really clear what was happening to Anna and we are in the same boat as the MC because the book is written from her POV. This was a bit frustrating to me because previously Anna h ...more

The final installment of Rysa Walker’s Delphi Trilogy was a satisfying, fast-paced sprint across states and days to answer lingering questions and tie up all lose ends. The 528 pages passed by like a snap of the fingers, leaving me without the all-too-familiar book hangover associated with unaddressed issues or unresolved relationship quandaries. In short, it was the perfect end to a trilogy.

This book is quite a bit darker than the other two in the trilogy, mainly because Anna must confront the

This is the exciting conclusion of an interesting story. There is mystery, murder, government corruption and conspiracy but also psychic powers and ghosts. The government has been experimenting with trying to enhance brain activity to produce extraordinary psychic powers in humans. They are successful in some cases but in others the results are catastrophic. Some of the children of the first generation test subjects, called adepts, are developing unusually strong powers and some powers are uncon ...more

A solid ending for the Delphi Trilogy!


I've been with Rysa Walker throughout the Chronos series and now the Delphi Trilogy. A lot of times my review on a book is based in part on when I read it and if it was the right book at the right time. Rysa Walker's books are based on constant action and activity, and with an assumption the reader is very familiar with prior books. I did find myself a bit scatterbrained during this reading so all of the adepts and the layers of characters were a bi

A solid but flawed end to the trilogy

I’d give this book 3.5 stars, but am rounding it up for the series as a whole.

I love Rysa’s world building and find myself very engaged with her characters. Maybe it was because a fair amount of time passed between my reading the second book and this one, but I had trouble connecting to the characters. I think this is in part because of what Anna is going through (trying to keep this spoiler free). I didn’t feel as close to her in this book and therefore felt

I received a free ARC from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Overall this was an amazing ending to an amazing series. The characters, the conflicts, the emotions all meshed very well. Anna gets thrown some major loops and manages them really well, when most people would probably fall and never get up. Aaron, Deo, Taylor, Daniel and the rest of the Wabbits are all back. Maria throws in her thoughts....literally into their minds. You get to meet some new wabbits. You le ...more

This book is the concluding volume to the Delphi Trilogy, and it is a big departure from the prior volumes. It takes place several months after the events of the Delphi Resistance, and Anna has become an unreliable narrator.

I usually adore unreliable narrators, but this one didn't sit well with me. It's partially because Anna's been a pretty straight relater of information so far, with the exception of withholding info about Myron. It's also because, since the book starts months after the prior

This is the third book in the series. Unlike the first two books this book possibly could be read as a stand alone. She repeats a lot of the story covered in the first two books. That makes the book a little slower than the first two.

These books have the story line of a group of kids with psychic abilities. The politicians want to use these young people to control the government. The kids just want to be left alone.

The locations of this book were in West Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina and

I enjoyed the series, good plot, good characters, however, in this last book of the series the author has decided to use her talent to push political views. For this reason, I gave one star to a book I would usually give 3 stars. When I read fiction, I do so for entertainment, not to be pushed toward anyones ideas about political issues. Rysa Walker has been removed from my list of authors to read. I have read and enjoyed the first book of her CHRONOS series, but will not read the others. Unfort ...more

I loved this trilogy! Anna Morgan has grown up in the foster care system, and she picks up ghost hitchhikers. The trilogy begins with her latest hitcher getting her to contact her grandfather to tell him what happened. This gets Anna and her friend Deo get pulled into a plot to take over the government that goes all the way to the top. Along the way, they discover who murdered Molly, infiltrate a secret government facility with other gifted teens, Anna gains more ghosts, some are kidnapped, and ...more

I thought this was a really great conclusion to an awesome trilogy. I'm incredibly sad to say goodbye to this world and the characters, but I'm so happy with the ending they all got. I definitely cried at the ending but I'm glad to know that these characters, especially Anna, are finally at peace. I loved the inclusion of Scott and Leah - I did not see their situation coming at all, but I loved it - and also of the Cregg family. I had thought that Graham was going to be more present in the book, ...more

A satisfying end to the Delphi trilogy. Walker picks up pretty much right where the previous book leaves us, but also gives some good reminders of where we've been for those who, like me, hadn't read them too recently. There are some good twists and turns in the story but also a few places where she goes sideways a bit unnecessarily, in my opinion. None of it is too distracting from the main thread, though, so a nice and solid 4 stars.

Thanks to the publisher for providing this ARC through Net Ga

I really love this series and was so happy to get it early from Netgalley. Once again, Anna, Aaron, Deo, Taylor and the rest of the gang fight for their freedom to live their lives in peace. There is a lot packed into this finale, some happy bits and a lot of sad. I'm not sure I liked the ending though. It was too much of a cliff hanger and left me wanting more. I have been an avid fan of dystopian fiction for a while now, and have loved reading the books by Rysa Walker. I highly recommend this ...more

Rysa Walker's The Delphi Revolution is the final book in this series. I tried to read with an open mind in so far as could it be a stand alone story. I think probably the reader would catch on to everything, but please don't. This story is so much richer having read The Delphi Effect and The Delphi Resistance. In her acknowledgments Ms Walker said coming to the end of the trilogy is "bittersweet" and I have to agree. The characters in these books now seem like personal friends and I will miss th ...more

Parting is such sweet sorrow

Ok, as much as I loathed Cregg, I couldn’t help but quote Shakespeare. Parting really is such sweet sorrow, so it is fitting. I absolutely loved this entire series and waiting for the final book was torture. (Luckily the Chronos series helped keep me occupied while waiting.) Although I am devastated that it’s over, Rysa Walker did such a wonderful job developing these characters. I will keep all of them in neat filing cabinets tucked away in my mind, but I think I can

I'm ambivalent about this series conclusion. It's more of a 3.5 star. It moved better than Book 2, but holy exposition, Batman. Between every chapter there was a news article, and unlike the previous books, the characters did not keep up with the news, talk about the news, or have respond to the news in any way.

The actions were dictated entirely by Anna's future premonitions, in a way that negated sanity. Knowing they couldn't change the future, they proceeded to do dumb things (like tote an en

Great ending!

So, I choose to read to take my mind off politics because I am a Deplorable, and though there are more people who approve of our current administration than the media wants to report, we all need an escape. The ratlike spider creature reminds me of Clinton, Obama, and Soros. As for the actual story and characters in this book, they are an exceptional duo. Loved this trilogy.

What a fitting ending to an amazing trilogy this was. I loved everything about this book. And just like the other books in this series the writing was great and intense, the characters well written and the pace was keeping me on edge the whole time. The Delphi Trilogy is high up on the list of books I highly recommend!
I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. Thanks to NetGalley and Skyscape!

I received this book through the Goodreads Giveaway contest. The Delphi Revolution was a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. And while I didn't love this series the same way I loved the Chronos Files series, I consider Rysa Walker one of my go-to YA authors. I did find the ending a tad weak. I just can't imagine the government keeping up their end (although that may have more to do with the current administration then the book) and I felt it was it was a bit glossed over. ...more

This was a really enjoyable, fun series. However this last book was about 100 pages too long. I'm glad I liked Anna and the gang as much as I did because a LOT of this book was them talking about their plans and going over every possible scenario and consequence. It was like 10 pages of chatting about doing something to every 1 page of actually doing something.

I liked the conclusion. At lot happens at once and it was a little hard to keep up, but I think it made sense in the end. It's a hard wo

Sad that it's over

This was a really great series and I enjoyed each book very much. I think the second is still my favorite, but this one gave the Trilogy a satisfying end. It took me a while to read though, I think because I knew it was the last book and I wanted to make it last. I was also worried for the characters and how things would end for them. I was definitely saddened by the end, but mostly happy. I still would like more, so maybe there will be some more novellas.
