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 he demigod Prince who has sworn to protect her with his life…and threatens to win her heart in the process.
I was given an ecopy of this book in turn for an honest review. Let me start this review off by stating how much I love the new Greek Mythology trend and am so glad to see it res-surging. When I was first given this book I was a little hesitant to get started, since sometime the genre can be a little kitschy. I will say that this took me a few chapters to really get into, but once the plot picked up I was hooked.
What I liked: The demi-god characters. They were hysterical and hot. I loved the romantic lead in this, maybe because he was a rockstar, or maybe because Jones just wrote him with so much swagger. Not only was the boy amazing, but I found the plot to be very interesting. It had just enough intrigue that it kept me enraptured, but I didn’t find it overloaded to the point where I was super confused or where it meant the book was dragging.
What I meh-ed on: So, I didn’t outright dislike anything, but like I mentioned before I did find it hard to get into initially. The beginning of the book lags a little, and is a little confusing. Luckily, I was on a plane so I didn’t have much else to do other than power through. Don’t give up! It picks up and does so amazingly. Not only did I find the beginning a little slower but Chloe was hard to root for in those first few chapters. I didn’t get her deal and I wasn’t really invested in her as a character until the middle of the book.
Overall, after a bumpy take off I found the book to be really enjoyed able. Make sure to stick it out, you’ll really find something special in it.
