The Baron's Betrothal: An On-Again, Off-Again, On-Again Regency Romance (Horsemen of the Apocalypse #2)

Prophecy of the Most Beautiful (Oracle of Delphi, #1) - Diantha Jones 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 didn’t find Chloe very relatable. I didn’t dislike her, she just didn’t grab my attention. But as the story progressed and the other characters were introduced the book really came alive. There were so many fun, funny and interesting characters! I loved seeing familiar favorites from the Greek Pantheon and meeting new character who soon became favorites. And everyone of them had a vital role to play in the story line.I also enjoyed the way the mythology was woven so intricately throughout this story; it was one of my favorite aspects of this book! But I know quite a lot about Greek mythology and I had to wonder if a person who was reading about the subject for the first time wouldn’t feel a bit lost?The author also spent quite a bit of time describing the characters clothes and just how hot Chloe’s love interest was. But I do like that the author has steered clear of the YA clichés of love triangles and cliff hanger endings.Aside from these few flaws I thought this was a very original twist on the Greek mythology theme and I am looking forward to the next book in the series.3.5 stars
