Synopsis: 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. 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 was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review. I can't say that I had huge expectations for Prophesy Of The Most Beautiful because I'm not all that familiar with this genre but if I had then I think it would have been better than them. I was surprised just how much I enjoyed the story really. The detail was rich and sucked you right in and there was some familiar characters including Apollo, Cupid and Aphrodite. I mean how awesome is that? Though it seemed you had to be careful of the Gods, they were not always to be trusted.
Chloe, the main character, had a very real personality and at the beginning struck me as kind of a rebel for being kicked out of school so many times but it turns out that it wasn't the case. I've got to say she was my least favorite character as she was quite annoying at some times but I loved the guys! My favorite had to be Ace, for one his name is awesome. He was just like the little brother that you never had but always wanted. I don't think there was one demigod prince that I disliked though.
Overall I really enjoyed this book and I look forward to the sequel to it Prophecy of the Setting Sunrise. Diantha Jones is a gifted author who has managed to craft a believable and creative world in which demigods prance around with swords and crossbows. I mean what more could you want? I would recommend this book to lovers of Greek Mythology or others like me who had yet to experience this beautiful genre.
