Before she changed my life forever, there was just me, Solar. Alone. Tortured. Defeated.

Wow. Just wow!
A novella about Strafford Law.
Be still, my beating fangirl heart!

I didn't expect to get this book for review this soon so I was more than excited to start it. Now that I have finished it, I'm kind of sad because I already miss Strafford and this world, if that makes sense.

A tiny warning; if you haven't read the Oracle of Delphi books yet you probably should read them first.

Solar, Defeated follo

I was the editor, so I'm not writing a review. Just marking it as read for my GR records. But I love this series, so obviously I loved this book.

I am so freaking excited for this! I need more Strafford!

Update: Finally got my bum in gear and read this! It was amazing insight into how Strafford's character changed and developed before he met Chloe and I loved reading about a young Ace too of course. I am now ready for Hero, Cursed!

Disclaimer: I received a review copy. This did not affect my review at all.

Strafford Law, the Solar Prince, Apollo's chosen son, growls through Prophecy of the Most Beautiful when we first meet him. He's angry and he doesn't trust his divine father any further than he could throw him. His father has assigned him to protect Chloe, the Oracle of Delphi, but Strafford knows that the person he really needs to protect her from is his father. Why so bitter, Solar?

This novella answers those questions,

From the moment Strafford Law saw Chloe Clever, he knew he was destined to love her forever.

OMG! As if the book cover didn't do the trick, I am officially head-over-heels in love with Strafford Law. I have developed an unhealthy addiction to the Oracle of Delphi series. Each book gets better and better. Ms. Jones has grown so much as a writer. It is clear in the beautiful cadence of her written works. I cannot wait to read more!

Solar, Defeated is book 2.5 of the Oracle of Delphi series. It is a

[Full disclosure: I received a free ebook copy from Diantha Jones as part of her blog tour in exchange for an honest review.]

Ooh, we finally get to learn more about our tortured, broody Sun Prince! I won’t call myself a fangirl, but the fact that Strafford has changed so much by being in love with Chloe makes him one of my favourite love interests ever. I mean, in pretty much every YA book out there the dark, tortured love interest is still a jerk by the end of the book/series. That’s definitely

I was so excited to read this book. I've read the blurb and it instantly pulled me in. I haven't read the other books yet but the author gives you enough insight that you aren't all confused but I suppose it would come in handy if you did. But now that I've finished it I will definitely read her other books. I couldn't get enough of Strafford! And now I want more. Definitely seems like a good series to read. If you love Greek mythology then you will love this seri

Wonderfully written book. I really appreciated the way the author titled each new chapter so that the reader was aware beforehand what time period they were reading from.

The story line of Gods and Demi Gods are fascinating. The author s style of writing, in the first person, was done well, clear and concise.
