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.


This book was provided by the Author for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Any book with a mythology basis is usually a must-read for me. This book had plenty of action and adventure to keep me reading from start to finish. I’ve studied Greek mythology here and there for fun and found that this book, while sticking to the characters from the myths, also added a new edge that made the story unique. My only major complaint was the formatting, which may have been my eReader, but it made it harder to read at times.

For anyone not familiar with Greek mythology, all of the information that was thrown at me while reading may be a tad confusing. It didn’t affect the story flow, thankfully, and I had no trouble passing. The beginning dragged a bit but it wasn’t long before I was hooked in Chloe’s (the protagonist) world. And…no love triangles! It’s very refreshing reading a story where all the characters aren’t falling in love with the pathetic damsel in distress (not that Chloe fits that category, or course).

Prophecy of the Most Beautiful is a great book for fans of Greek mythology. I do think it’s better suited for YA readers as I found it like the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan and The Weight of Night by C.L. Stegall, but with a feminine twist. A delightful read and I look forward to the sequel.
