I was given this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Prophecy of the Most Beautiful by Diantha Jones is a wonderful adventure story starring Chloe Clever, who discovers pretty quickly that she is different from other teenaged girls. She hears voices and sees things, and everyone thinks she has a mental disorder. She quickly realizes that she is the Oracle, a being can see and hear the future and has important ties to the Greek myths of old. She meets Stafford Law, who is a demigo

I received an e-copy of Prophecy of the Most Beautiful through the author Diantha Jones for review. (I love getting review requests of awesome sound books!) I decided to read it because:
1. It's based on Greek myth. ~ I simply cannot resist that!
2. From reading the synopsis there seemed to be lots of action in it. ~ I love that.
3. There's a mysterious demigod Prince in it. ~ I was already swooning.

I wasn't instantly hooked by Prophecy of the Most Beautiful. The beginning seemed a little slow to

First Thoughts:

It took me a little bit to get into the story…the beginning just lacked something…I just couldn’t connect with the characters or story but slowly it finally came and the rest of the book was a pleasant and fun experience. I loved the mythology involved, it had small similarities to the “Goddess Test” series when it came to the mythology part but there were definitely huge differences between the two series. This book had a lot of comedy scenes but also tons of serious scenes, it w

Greek mythology is universally loved. Myths of the gods and goddesses are extremely similar to the current celebrity gossip that is viral. The Percy Jackson & the Olympians is a prime example of Greek mythology's popularity. After all, it's almost impossible to go wrong with Greek mythology supporting the book. Hilarity is bound to ensue as long as a god or goddess is present to destroy something.

There are two things that I didn't like about the book. The romance was way over the top. I was pelted with both sides of the love sick coin with both Chloe and her love interest proclaiming in the narrative upon first sight how much they really wanted the other. If it was written only from Chloe's POV, then I probably wouldn't have minded as much. The mythology is borrowed directly from Greek legends, which I love, but I can't help but compare it to Percy Jackson. The Gods and demigods just wer ...more

Anything based on Greek mythology is usually something that is going to peak my interest and this book was no exception. This is the first book in a series following a not so normal girl Chloe, she has hallucinations and speaks to voices in her head, who is caught up in the world of Greek gods and demi gods. Cue love, immortality, epic fights and a destiny beyond anything she has ever imagined.

I have to say that at first this book was a little difficult to get into. I think this was because I di

First of all the cover of Prophecy of the Most Beautiful is stunning. It looks like the girl is from the seventies. Loving it. Second, after reading it I wanted more. This book is a must read.

I loved all of the characters. They were all awesome. The main character Chloe is likeable. At first I thought she was a bit strange and annoying, but after reading a couple of more pages she became more fun to be around with. The ‘team’ of Gods she hangs out with, or shall I say protect her, are awesome.

This book was a completely unexpected fun roller coaster ride that I just devoured in a few days and enjoyed immensely. I love Greek mythology so this book really stood out for me. It is amazingly detailed and just full to the brim with original ideas and completely modernises Greek mythology and the famous Gods of myth. The level of accuracy in regards to some of the tales from mythology in this book just amazed me and really showed me how much work went into the story. It totally reflects the ...more
Reviewed on Lili Lost in a Book

I have read A TON of Greek mythology books, but never one that focused on an Oracle, which I really liked about this book!

I think the author did a fantastic job throwing cool little things here and there, such as the Royalty, and all the cool weapons and equipment (Hermes mail!). It was just very clever!

However, there were other parts that made me go, "Hmmm, I don't know about that." You see, because I LOVE my Greek mythology, I am very picky and am always looking

4.5 on the Masq Scale

This book has it all! Think Greek mythology dressed up in today's clothes. You are reminded of Percy Jackson where there are Gods, Demigods, Nymphs and so forth but there in the similarities end. Chloe, the main character is a teenager that hears voices. She kept having these "hallucinations" and no one really understood them. They could only do the thing that made the most sense and that is to call her crazy. It is her coming of age story. Realizing a

(I gave it a 4.5 on my blog cause I did have a couple little issues, but I did think it was amazing so 5 stars here.)

Something you should know about me. When I was a teenager, I was obsessed with mythology. In Middle School, it was all about the Egyptians. In High School, it was the Greeks and the Norse. (I liked Norse better, but Greek was a close second.)

So, when Ms. Jones asked me to review this story and I saw that it was all about Greek mythology, I was like: yes, please!

I haven’t read a mythology-themed story about the Oracle of Delphi before now so this book is a first for me. The usual stuffs were retellings about gods and goddesses or adventures of demigods. I’m glad PROPHECY OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL offers something new. I’ve always thought the Oracle is an important and powerful character in the Geek myth but oftentimes she was downplayed as an ordinary seer, operating

[Full disclosure: I found Prophecy of the Most Beautiful on The Masquerade Crew and was so interested in it that Mark Lee put me in contact with Diantha Jones so I could request the book. Yes, I actually requested the book myself.]

Prophecy of the Most Beautiful is what fantasy should be: fast-paced, unique, well thought-out and unpredictable. It’s a book you won’t be able to put down, not only because of the awesome characters, but because the plot takes so many twists and turns you won’t have a

Chloe Clever has had it rough: her father left her family a few years ago, she's plagued with hallucinations of the scariest kind and she's her high school's resident freak.

By the second chapter we know why: Chloe is the Oracle of Delphi, and the voices she hears and visions she sees are real. She's saved in the nick of time from certain death at the hands of an evil Ker by the children of... Apollo. Turns out the god of prophecy has some very good reasons to want to protect the Oracle, but Chlo

This review is from The Book Lover's Report

So, this starts out with Chloe. She is called a 'freak' by everyone around her because she's just finished her fourth suspension(which is a school record), she sees things that nobody else does, she hears voice, and to top it all off, she talks to those voices.

A few pages in, Chloe sees another one of those people that nobody else sees. He's tuff-guy looking and holding a motorcycle helmet. He then threatens her and her family, to 'try' to make her coop

This book was recommended to me by fellow book blogger, Carrie Slager from The Mad Reviewer. After reading both the book and her review, I came away with a difference of opinion. I went back and forth with this book for the longest time. There were so many enjoyable elements that it was hard to put it down, but there were also some issues that had me struggling to get through certain sections.

I loved this book! It is simple as that. A clever, loyal heroine, Greek mythology, demigods, what's not to love? The beginning is a little slow but not to worry. The action picks up and quickly the book becomes a page turner.

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. :)

This book was a lot of fun, and I love the play on the Greek mythologies. There’s just so much to play with in that mythology, it’s great. It was fast-paced and an easy read.

I didn’t believe the romance. It felt rushed, but I can kinda see why. There wasn’t a lot of room for it. But I’m not a believer in love at first sight. There are some books that make me believe it. This wasn’t one of them. I think it was that it wasn’t shown. I didn’t feel it. I was told about the instant pudding love, whic

I love Greek mythology so I jumped at the chance to read this young adult book by Diantha Jones. It started off slower than I would have liked, but once it got moving, it took off. Initially, I wasn't sure what to make of Chloe Clever. Her use of the word "retard" repeatedly early on, turned me off to her immediately. For one, that word is loathsome, for another, her fear of being lumped in with kids in special education classes showed her ignorance. But her character growth was more profound as ...more

Prophecy of the Most Beautiful is a story that follows a girl named Chloe. Chloe knows she is not like other teenage girls and her difference gets her in trouble, big time. When pretty much forced to leave school, she experiences something very tragic. That tragedy has led her into a world she never thought existed.

By now you all know how much I enjoy mythology based books. I have read and reviewed a bunch of them in the Young Adult Genre and a couple in the New Adult genre, but I don't think I have ever read one from the perspective of the oracle. There have been books that deal with prophesies but none that deal with the person making the predictions. I thought that was a really interesting take on the subject.
