on Sep 14, 2012
She has a destiny so great that even the gods fear her...

Constant hallucinations and the frequent conversations with voices in her head, have earned eaighteen-year-old Chloe Clever the not-so-coveted title of "Whack Job" in her home town of Adel, Georgia. few 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 viscious 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. 

Genre: Young Adult / Fantasy / Mythology / Romance

Review: Chloe is an eighteen year old girl who discovers she is an oracle wanted by the gods.

I really enjoyed this book! Chloe was an interesting main character to follow. People on her hometown assume that her she is crazy because of her visions. So she is odd and has very few friends, until she's discovered by the god, Apollo. The other characters were also interesting and very diverse. All of the guys that Chloe met were extremely attractive, which was cool. Still can't decide who my favorite is. :)

Everything was easy to picture and the pacing was very good. The Greek mythology is abundant and many of the Greek gods make appearances as well as other mythical figures.

I loved that every once and a while the story was shown from another characters point of view. We were able to receive needed updates and seeing inside Chloe's love interest was really interesting.

Though the first few pages were a little boring for me, the story really captures the reader as I'm sure the rest of the series will continue to do so. :)
