Rating: 4/5 

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.

** I received a free copy of this book. This is not affected my review in any way**

Magic. Oracles. Romance. What more would you except from a YA fantasy novel? The synopsis sounded promising! So I ultimately dove through this book. The beginning, I have to admit, was a bit slow. Some of the characters, like Chloe for example, really bothered and irritated me at the beginning. But then we get to the climax of the story and... BOOM! The author totally creates this sudden development where all the characters become more bad ass and the action is constantly there. The Greek Myths tied in beautifully with the story line of this book. Of course, I'm a sucker for anything with Greek Myths.

What Diantha Jones did best was portraying her world. The world that she created was unique and unlike anything I'd ever read before. I was surprised by how much I liked it! The romance was a bit over the top, although nothing I didn't like.

This series vaguely reminded me of The Percy Jackson series, which I absolutely loved. However, I believe the Percy Jackson had a bit more action-packed scenes considering it was filled with Greek Myths and etc. I really think I hit it off with this book. There was a connection in there somewhere, and I just felt really relaxed while reading this book. Like all the books I fall madly in love with, I recommend this book to anyone and everyone out there. You don't have to be a Greek Mythology lover! You just have to be into action and romance! Trust me because you won't be sorry.
