MP!er Sharon shares her thoughts on Mario Routi’s ‘Rebecca Newton and the Last Oracle’ the second in the series of mythical epic fantasy awesomeness.
Describe the plot of ‘Rebecca Newton and the Last Oracle’’ in a tweet – less than 140 characters please!
Quite action packed, lots of things happening at some great characters.
Have you read the first book in the ‘Rebecca Newton’ series?
I had not read the first book in this series so did not know what to expect.
Without giving anything away, does the ending make you want to read the next in the series?
In the book,We meet Princess Leylah who after her 16th Birthday she starts to have visions and turns out to be the Oracle. She is able to let her people the Orizons, know of the Sartani and the Titans plan to steal the Sacred Flame, which helps her people not only Heal themselves but also to be Emortal. We also meet the gods from Greek Mythology, and Minotaurs, Cyclops. Can They over come the very dangerous Cronus, who has no face of his own but can take on any face he likes!! Can Leylah and her friend Alexander servive Cronus deceipt?? They also have to try and save our Earth from General Varta and his Demons.
At the end, there was a slight twist to the story!! I am interested to see what happens next.
What genre would you class the book as?
I would say this book is a Fantasy/Adventure
What was the best bit?
I really enjoyed the ending!! Cant say anymore without ruining the book!!
Anything you didn’t like?
The only problem that I had with the book, is that it jumped around a lot. I enjoyed the book but did get confused in places.
Would you recommend ‘Rebecca Newton and the Last Oracle’ series to your friends?
I have already passed the book on to Harvey who is 11, so hopefully he will enjoy the book too. I have also tweeted the book and the author, just to make sure there is another book coming soon. Yes, there is, so thats good news.
Do you think it would appeal to girls or boys more? Or both?
I think the book could appeal to both boys and girls, Its got blood and fighting but also has a softer side.
Anything else you’d like to tell us about the book?
I will be looking out for the third book in the series but will also be reading the first book.
