I’m happy to be part of the blog tour for the Oracle of Delphi series by Diantha Jones. I have information on the books, a character guest post from Chloe that will entice you to read these books, and a fabulous giveaway to share. Enjoy.
Constant hallucinations and the frequent conversations with the voices in her head, have earned eighteen-year-old Chloe Clever the not-so-coveted title of “Whack Job” in her home town of Adel, Georgia. With the onslaught of prescription medications and therapists threatening to push her over the edge, she wishes for a life far away from the one she has, a life where she is destined to be more than the butt of everyone’s jokes and mockery.
Be careful what you wish for has never rung more true.
After living through an attack from her worst nightmare, she awakens to find herself far from home, surrounded by glorious riches and servants…and a few demigods who enjoy killing things. Upon learning that her favorite rockstar is an Olympian god, she is thrust into her new life as the Oracle of Delphi, the prophesier of the future, and the great Pythia that the gods have been anxiously awaiting to arrive for centuries. Setting out to fulfill the prophecy she has been given and to keep her family safe from a demigod Princess that wants her dead, Chloe learns of how great she is to become, all the while fighting mythical monsters, evading divine assassins and trying to outwit the ever-cunning Greek gods who harbor secrets of their own. In the hopes of discovering the Most Beautiful and the truth of her destiny, she strives to uncover the mysteries of the demigod Prince who has sworn to protect her with his life…and threatens to win her heart in the process.
And it’s all Chloe Clever’s fault.
Still as whacked out as ever, Chloe is now faced with an even uglier truth: Not only is she the Pythia of the Great Unknown, but she is more powerful than she ever imagined and only the manifestations of her prophetic mind can save them all now.
With her Prince boyfriend, Strafford, and the Quad Fraternity always armed and ready to annihilate the opposition, she will embark on a mission to stop a great power that could consume every god in Myth…and everyone else she’s come to love.
But the worst is still to come.
Dark, painful secrets are revealed, threatening to tear Strafford from her arms, and just when she thinks the future could not look more grim, she is betrayed in the worst way.
With the heavens crumbling down around her, she must hurry to find a way to set things right. But will she be in time to save the one she loves most in the world from a fate that may be more dangerous than her own?
Hey, I’m Chloe, or Pythia, if that’s what you want to call me. I’m the Oracle of Delphi.
I don’t know much about these blog tour things Diantha’s always talking about, but she asked me to write this, so I did. I guess I’m supposed to tell you what it’s like being the Oracle, but honestly, I don’t know if I can. I’m not sure I can truly make you understand what it’s like being surrounded by prophecies, magic, and Greek gods every day of my life.
Well, my new life. My old one wasn’t like this at all. I was the “Whack Job” in Adel, Georgia, the crazy, psycho girl who hallucinated and talked to voices in her head. Ah, those voices in my head…they’re a handful, that’s for sure. The hallucinations haven’t stopped. They’re just more frightening now. And then there’s the prophecies. Those things are powerful. They consume me. They take over my mind. But I was born for this, the gods say. It’s only just begun.
My demigod boyfriend, Strafford Law, makes carrying this load so much easier. He’s an amazing hero…and a Prince. The Sun Prince, to be exact, and if it wasn’t for him, I might have cracked already. He loves me and I love him, and I know that we’ll get through this. We have each other and our friends, and together, I know we’ll save Myth.
Have I not told you about Myth yet? Yeah, it’s the kingdom of the Greek gods. I wish I could tell you to go to your window and look up, because that’s where Myth is. In the clouds. But you couldn’t see it. The gods don’t want you to. But let me tell you, Myth is like a poisonous flower. It may be beautiful, but it will kill you if you’re not careful.
The future is in my hands, I guess. I’m not too proud to admit I’m scared. I’m going to have to do some pretty crazy things to save this new world I’ve become such an important part of. But there really is no other way. This is my path. This is my future. This is my destiny.
