Prophecy of the Most Beautiful 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. With the onslaught of prescription medications and therapists threatening to push her over the edge, she wishes for a life far away from the one she has, 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 living through an attack from her worst nightmare, she awakens to find herself far from home, surrounded by glorious riches and servants…and a few demigods who enjoy killing things. Upon 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, and the great Pythia that the gods have been anxiously awaiting to arrive for centuries. Setting out to fulfill the prophecy she has been given and to keep her family safe from a demigod Princess that wants her dead, Chloe learns of how great she is to become, all the while fighting mythical monsters, evading divine assassins and trying to outwit the ever-cunning Greek gods who harbor secrets of their own. In the hopes of discovering the Most Beautiful and the truth of her destiny, 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.
This book is great for any lover of Greek mythology, whether or not they are new to the genre or not. Jones pushes readers new to Greek mythology to learn more and know more about Greek mythology. For seasoned readers, Jones also adds twists to Prophecy of the Most Beautiful and finds new things to introduce, as well as twisting up some Greek myths to add excitement.
Can I also cry over the cover? It's so pretty and striking! I don't usually like covers with people on it (it ruins my imagination), but this cover is just so ethereal and gripping, with the words "The Future is now" inscribed on it.
The plot was well-paced and interesting. The first few pages were difficult to get through though. This was mainly because I wanted to get to the Greek mythology parts. Thankfully, Jones does a fantastic job in setting the scene with the first few pages, as well as establishing Chloe's personality and her background.
Chloe was a rounded and interesting character. Unlike other books, Chloe was an individual character, and she didn't let anything sway her. She had a real background and she didn't drop everything to be part of this new world that she had never known all her life.
This book is worthy of a 4 stars out of 5. It captivated my attention, was really interesting and it was a whole new world for me to explore. It's perfect for any reader, be they new or seasoned towards Greek mythology!
Keep reading and loving books,
