Blog Tour: Prophecy of Solstice's End

Today is my stop on the blog tour for Prophecy of Solstice's End which is book 3 in the Oracle of Delphi series by Diantha Jones, one of the nicest authors ever. I will be sharing my review and then you should check out the book links and find the giveaways at the bottom of the post.

 The Book 
Summer Solstice is here. Let the games begin.

Nothing but lies (some of them her own) and deceit have brought Chloe to Olympus for the Solstice Olympic Games. As the Oracle and the special guest of the King of Myth, Chloe becomes immersed in a life of unfathomable luxury, taunting history, and overwhelming excitement. Though scheming and untrustworthy, the gods remain on their best behavior as the tension and anticipation builds around the outcome of the Quest of the Twelve Labors, the deadliest competition of the Games. All seems well on the celestial front...until athletes start turning up dead and a philosopher missing for months returns with a most terrifying story...

But that’s not all.

As Strafford confronts his troubled past and more is learned about the Great Unknown Prophecy, Chloe grows close to another, setting off a chain of events that will bring her face-to-face with a truth that will rock both of her worlds to their core.

And it’ll all happen before Solstice’s end...

 My Thoughts 
The day I started Prophecy of Solstice's End...was one of the best days ever!
Excited to finally find out what happens after Prophecy of the Setting Sunrise I jumped into this a few days after receiving it. The book starts off three weeks after the ending of Prophecy of the Setting Sunrise as Chloe Clever and friends travel to Olympus at the request/order of Zeus. During their stay, demigods are being murdered, the war of the gods is coming to a head and Chloe is stuck in the middle of it, trying to save them all. Complete with her usual action, romance and the Greek mythology that I love, Ms. Jones kept me glued to my Kindle. With rich detail and fun characters, there is never a dull moment. I can't really say much about the story without giving away the first two books but the mystery continues from book to book as Chloe works to solve the Great Unknown Prophecy and save the ones she loves.
Even though I love all of the Oracle of Delphi characters I must mention my favorite first, Ace Remedy. To me, Ace Remedy is one of the best characters in the history of book boyfriends and he really got to take a lead in Prophecy of Solstice's End. Issues with his brother Strafford cause him to act out a bit and in the end I got to see how strong their relationship really is which made me love the Irish boys even more. Then there's Swindle, aka Lenka Tahile. DUDE. What I learned of Swindle's history completely blew my mind and some of his actions have me wondering what the heck is up with him lately but he's pretty kick-butt with his new attitude. In Prophecy of Solstice's End we're finally introduced to the well-known gods of Greek Mythology. Zeus, Hera and Poseidon make first appearances and Apollo, Hermes and Athena are back keeping things interesting.
I pretty much love every single one of Diantha's characters whether they're nice or evil and you can't help but find something to love about them.

Prophecy of Solstice's End deserves
I absolutely loved this book and it's the highest I've rated one in the Oracle of Delphi series. With a fun and adventurous plot, characters you root for and a brilliant world to disappear to, Prophecy of Solstice's End does not disappoint.

Diantha Jones was born the day thousands of turkeys sacrificed their lives to fill millions of American bellies on November 22 which also happened to be Thanksgiving Day (Her mother says she owes her a turkey). She is a Journalism graduate who wants to be a career novelist (of books, not Facebook posts). When not writing or working, she is reading on her Nook, being hypnotized by Netflix or on a mission to procure french fries. 

The Oracle of Delphi fantasy series is her first series. She is also the author of Mythos: Stories from Olympus, a companion series, and there is another fantasy trilogy in the works. She also writes (new) adult fantasy/paranormal romance under the name A. Star. Invasion (An Alien Romance) is her first title released under this name. Future releases under A. Star include, the Love & Steampunk series, the Purr, Inc. stories, and more.
