Describe the plot of ‘Rebecca Newton and the Last Oracle’’ in a tweet – less than 140 characters please!
Princess Leylah is really caught in a situation in this book; trying to deal with the fact she’s the last oracle, boy troubles and a war on the horizon, Leylah must figure out how to get through it all, while trying not to end up dead. All the while Rebecca has a fight of her own on her hands, and a whole different kind of ugly is planning on invading earth.
Have you read the first book in the ‘Rebecca Newton’ series?
No, but I feel the need to read this, to truly understand the back story of the book.
Without giving anything away, does the ending make you want to read the next in the series?
Oh my god yes! I want the next book right now!
What genre would you class the book as?
Fantasy –the best kind!
What was the best bit?
The whole ‘off the wall’ era that the book is set in. it is both literally and figuratively out of this world. Routi transports the reader millions of miles away in this cleverly written book.
Anything you didn’t like?
The suspense, and my word was there a lot of suspense in this book! It had me sitting on the edge of my seat the whole time.
Would you recommend ‘Rebecca Newton and the Last Oracle’ series to your friends?
Oh yes, I’ve already let one of my friends borrow it!
Do you think it would appeal to girls or boys more? Or both?
Both, mainly because of all the different character plots that run through the book simultaneously. The reader gets the best of everything; love, war, deception.
Anything else you’d like to tell us about the book?
Well I’ve just bought the first book, so I think that’s enough really. I’m reading the series backwards, but I don’t really think it matters too much as I read the second book fine without having read the first book!
