Oracle of Delphi Blog Tour ~ Book Review: Prophecy of the Setting Sunrise (Oracle of Delphi #2) by Diantha Jones

on Jul 22, 2013

 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?

Genre: Young Adult / Fantasy / Mythology / Romance

Review: Prophecy of the Setting Sunrise is a exciting blend of romance, adventure and enchanting mythology! 

Chloe Clever is back, with more prophecy, myth and sarcastic demigods. I love Chloe. I think she's a very relatable and down-to-earth character. 

Team Strafford! Oh, he is just too much, I love him (insert fangirl squeal here). In this installment more of Strafford's past is revealed to the reader. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what mysterious deed happened to disgrace the sun prince. 

*Mini spoiler-sort of* I'm really curious to see what part Torrent has to play in all of this. I can tell he is going to be one of those characters that I half love and half hate.  

This book was full of surprises as well, especially in the later chapters, some good, some not-so-good. This series is very rich in the actually Greek mythology, something some other popular series have lacked. I don't want to spoil anything but it was very enjoyable to read in depth about some myths and places I've only heard about. 

And the ending argghhh, I was so surprised! I just wanted to jump in and save everyone. There is also a certain God who is infuriating. 

Diantha Jones has once again taken us on a thrilling adventure through the land of the gods and kept us rooting for a red-headed mortal to save the world. 

Totally starting the third now!
