Synopsis from Goodreads:
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
*Got an ARC in exchange for my honest review*
I was so super excited for this book. And I enjoy almost all books Lizzy Ford writes so I might be a wee bit biased on my review.
Anyway, I loved this book. Alessandra is awesome yet a little naive seeing how she was raised it was kind of expected. The action satisfied my action craving for the week. Reading about the characters background in the miniseries ( which I still have to finish, It didn’t take from the story but there was some spoilers I guess you could say.). Seeing how everyone plays into Alessandra’s life as she’s older and how she goes about discovering who she is and what her future could hold. There is some romance which is completely sweet and I enjoyed how its being played out.
Like I said I LOVED this book. I think everything is coming together wonderfully from the miniseries. All the characters are entertaining wether they be “bad” or “ good”. I stayed up all night reading it and was extremely upset when I got to the end. Its an awesome cliffhanger! When I hit the last page I kept turning the pages looking for more. ( There is a part of the miniseries in the back) Super Excited for the next in the series.
Action packed, Wonderful characters, great story, I love the take on the greek gods and the human world.
