“Your name is seared into my soul. I will always return to you.”
In a modern world ruled by territorial Greek gods, the human race has been oppressed, exploited and now, nearly destroyed by the constant infighting of gods.
However, a human girl with the power of a goddess is coming of age. Alessandra is the Oracle of Delphi – the last prophesized – and bears the mark of the double omega. Soon after she turns eighteen, Alessandra is told her destiny: to step between the warring gods and the human race and save her world from certain ruin.
For the gods, her appearance marks the beginning of the end – their end. They and the Triumvirate – leaders of the human elite – who serve them will stop at nothing to preserve their power.
Alessandra emerges from the forest where she spent her life hidden from gods and men and immediately plummets into a race against time, gods, and herself to discover who and what she is in a world where everyone she meets has a hidden agenda, and those pulling the strings remain in the shadows.
Before she can determine exactly what kind of savior her world needs, she must first master her power by completing three trials devised by the Triumvirate to enslave her.
One lone girl stands between warring gods and the people she’s destined to protect, but it’s the battle to understand who she is that she must win first.
I always love to read greek mythology books. When I received this copy, I was so excited to read it.
Alessandra has her work cut out for her in becoming an oracle and finding out who she is supposed to trust. I was taken on her journey with a lot of twists, turns and surprises. This is one of those books that when you read it, you feel like you are there with them. There is some romance which is completely sweet and I enjoyed how it’s being played out. *calling Adonis*
There are so many people in this book that may seem trustworthy but are just liars and only want what’s best. The characters were great. I loved some of them, but there are these characters that you will just hate. I love how Lizzy give equal amount of attention to her characters, not just to the main character.
I heard there were miniseries before this book about the story of each characters. I hope I read the miniseries first before reading this book so that I have a background story for each. To make the long story short, this book was a great read. I can’t wait to read the second book in the series which I heard to be released on 2016.
Remember to add this on your TBR shelf! 🙂 BUT I suggest you read the Miniseries first.
