The Prophecy of the Most Beautiful by Diantha Jones, the first book in The Oracle of Delphi Series, is an adventure-filled, Greek Mythology inspired young adult novel with a hint of romance. Self-published on March 1st, 2012, I received a copy of the ebook from the author in exchange for an honest review. I was also part of the book tour in 2012. Thank you Diantha for the free copy. I read it from November 21 to December 09, 2012.
Prophecy of the Most Beautiful (Oracle of Delphi #1)
by Diantha Jones
She has a destiny so great that even the gods fear her.
Constant hallucinations and the frequent conversations with the voices in her head, have earned eighteen-year-old Chloe Clever the not-so-coveted title of “Whack Job” in her home town of Adel, Georgia. Fed up with prescription meds and therapists, she wishes for a life where she is destined to be more than the butt of everyone’s jokes and mockery.
Be careful what you wish for has never rung more true.
After a vicious attack and learning that her favorite rockstar is an Olympian god, she is thrust into her new life as the Oracle of Delphi, the prophesier of the future. Setting out to fulfill the prophecy she has been given, Chloe learns of how great she is to become, all the while fighting mythical monsters and trying to outwit the ever-cunning Greek gods who harbor secrets of their own. While on a mission to discover the Most Beautiful, she strives to uncover the mysteries of the demigod Prince who has sworn to protect her with his life…and threatens to win her heart in the process.
Let’s start with the cover. It’s one of the most gorgeous things I’ve ever seen, and it’s super duper appropriate to the title. Although the cover girl is not the “most beautiful” mentioned in the title. This is the first Greek Mythology themed novel I’ve read, (Moonlight and Oranges does not count because it was inspired by a Greek Myth story), and I LOVED IT! Like what I mentioned in my Goodreads review, I’m not very familiar with Greek Myth as I didn’t have it during high school, and after reading this I want to know more about it. I loved the characters as well, especially Strafford. Ace is cool too, he’s the guy for me even if I fell in love with Strafford’s hunky features. Chloe was kind of annoying at times, but I guess everyone is, at one point of another. The mystery of who the most beautiful is was something I didn’t expect. Then again, I wasn’t familiar with the gods and goddesses. I like how it is full of adventure and even the fight scenes are clearly described. I want to learn more about their world, fortunately, I have a copy of the sequel too, which I will read some time soon.
