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 and owning what she is and what she can do. She is the Oracle of Delphi, a very powerful incarnation at that.
Strafford Law is her guardian. He is a dishonored demigod and there is a cute romance blossoming between Chloe and Stafford. The many worlds are interesting but definitely borrowed from cities well known to most readers. I do not necessarily understand the tattoos and how much the demigods seem to like them! This book was fast paced with a lot of twists and turns. It was a fun, entertaining read. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a very imaginative take on ancient Greece and their famous Gods.
One issue that I had with the book was the development of Chloe’s character. She inherently seems to get good at fighting and leaps before thinking. This seems to be a miss with an Oracle but perhaps we will understand this behavior in the other books. 4.5 stars! I will definitely watch for more books in this series and by Diantha!
