It’s official. Myth is doomed.
And it’s all Chloe Clever’s fault.
Still as whacked out as ever, Chloe is now faced with an even uglier truth: Not only is she the Pythia of the Great Unknown, but she is more powerful than she ever imagined and only the manifestations of her prophetic mind can save them all now.
With her Prince boyfriend, Strafford, and the Quad Fraternity always armed and ready to annihilate the opposition, she will embark on a mission to stop a great power that could consume every god in Myth...and everyone else she’s come to love.
But the worst is still to come.
Dark, painful secrets are revealed, threatening to tear Strafford from her arms, and just when she thinks the future could not look more grim, she is betrayed in the worst way.
With the heavens crumbling down around her, she must hurry to find a way to set things right. But will she be in time to save the one she loves most in the world from a fate that may be more dangerous than her own?
Take me to the Greek! I received an email from Diantha Jones requesting a review of her newest work, Prophecy of the Setting Sunrise, a while after I read and reviewed the first in the series, Prophecy of the Most Beautiful. I’m happy to report that Jones delivered with this fast-paced installment of the Oracle of Delphi series. If you’re into Greek mythology, you’re going to love both of these books. With a fantastic cast of characters and a strong leading lady, Prophecy of the Setting Sunrise has left it’s mark and I look forward to more works by Jones.
It’s hard to find a place in Prophecy of the Setting Sunrise where things aren’t moving. This book is jam-packed with action and adventure while remaining uncluttered of teenage drama like some YA novels are. I flew through the book in record time and enjoyed the tale as it slowly unraveled into the bigger picture. And if we could have the next book, that would be great? …Seriously…pretty please? Jones took Greek mythology, revamped it, and gave us a story for the ages. I could get my mythology, YA, and fantasy fix all in one novel — that’s pretty impressive in my books. After I pushed past the very beginning which read a little…off, I didn’t put the book down until it was down and I had a serious book hangover.
But hey, where would a good book be without a great character cast? Chloe wasn’t my favorite heroine in Prophecy of the Most Beautiful but she upped her game this novel. And I loved Stafford, though it’s a close call between who my heart belongs to between him and Ace. The cast has grown since the first book and my only complaint about Prophecy of the Setting Sunrise is that I wished I could’ve seen more from the minor characters. I loved the main cast but the rest of the characters could’ve held their own for a few scenes too, in my opinion. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the way Jones had it with Chloe as the main viewpoint.
If you haven’t read Prophecy of the Most Beautiful and you like Greek mythology, you need to get your hands on it. Prophecy of the Setting Sunrise was a stunning sequel and great addition to the Oracle of Delphi series, and I look forward to reading what’s in store for Chloe and the gang next. These books are great for fans of action and adventure, mythology of the Greek variety, a little mystery, and even some romance that won’t make you gag. If you don’t believe me, you’re just going to have to read it to find out.
