This book mostly centers in Olympus when Chloe goes there for the Solstice Olympic Games as Zeus' guest. Yes, it's just as exciting as it sounds and Olympus is just as amazing as I thought it would be. While Chloe gets preoccupied with her role as the Oracle and starts to really grasp what it means, Strafford is on his own quest, participating in the dangerous Twelve Labors. Between all of this, the Quad is falling apart, everyone is devided and Chloe learns more about herself.
Prophecy of Solstice End definitely felt more different than the other books. I don't mean that in a bad way at all because I loved this book. I couldn't get enough of it. It was so exciting with a lot of unexpected twists that gave me mini heart attacks and left me shocked, not knowing what to do with myself. That ending... damn, Diantha, why do you keep torturing us like this? And yet I devoured and loved every plot twists like they were chocolate cookies. Can't help but be amazing at how Diantha can still shock us with these unexpected events and her amazing writing after two books. But, yes, it felt very different. Things are absolutely kicked up a notch.
I love the gods, did I mention that before? Well, they are seriously awesome though some of them have evil plans. They are definitely entertaining to read about. And since this book is set in Olympus they are ALL there. Zeus, Hera, Apollo, Hermes, Aphrodite, and so on and on... Gotta love it.
All the other characters are more on their own in PoSE. The Quad is kind of falling apart and it doesn't help that Chloe is growing really close to someone that is not Strafford. Dum, dum, duuuum... Who, you ask? Read the book and you'll know! ;)
I still love Chloe though. She's never been more badass (I think it's Strafford's influence. lol). She's also getting more into her role as Oracle, giving Kismet to Heroes and even getting a philosopher of her very own!
Strafford as always was swoon-worthy and amazing. Especially in his Quest of the Twelve Labours. I really enjoyed reading those scenes. Diantha kicks ass at writing action scenes and they're still my favorite together will the romantic scenes which are also amazing I might add. Chloe and Strafford's connection gives off fireworks even when they're fighting and things definitely get a little steamy every now and then.
As for the rest of the Quad. I was so sad a lot of times for how they weren't all as close as they were, though in the end it's definitely better. Thank goodness...
Still, a lot of stuff happens and not always good things. Be prepared, people!
Overall, Prophecy of Solstice's End by Diantha Jones was another sensational book in my favorite Greek Mythology series. Full of intrigue, unexpected twists, shocking events and a gasp-for-breath ending, it's the most exciting Oracle of Delphi book so far. And I can't wait to find out what else is in store for our heroes and the Oracle of Delphi!
Another disclaimer: this is a long book. My copy came in at 408 pages, and I might have waited a few extra days to get into it because of that.
No worries: I more than made up for it when I found myself unable to put it down and staying up way past my bedtime to read just a little bit more. I read this on my laptop- on the train. When I say I couldn't put it down, I meant it.
Why? Because things come to a head when Chloe and her team answer Zeus' summons to attend the Olympic Games- the games her true love Strafford aka Solar aka The Sun Prince just happens to be competing in. Did you have some huge questions after the first two installments? Jones delivers on a lot of the answers, particularly those concerning Hermes' son Swindle, the all-seeing Thetans, that devilishly charming son of Zeus Torrent and- oh yeah- Chloe's father. (You'll want to say "apples don't fall far from trees"- but then you're going to start wondering which tree we're concerned with.)
Wouldn't it be nice if Chloe and her demigod friends could work out their family dramas in relative peace? Sadly, no. They still have the little matter of constellations falling out of the sky- and wait until you see the ones that fall out in this book- and Apollo and Zeus circling each other to see which one is going to throw down the gauntlet first. We learned in the last book that Apollo has help; don't worry- so does Zeus. No surprise that there are several attempted murders. What's more surprising is that not all of them are successful...yet another mystery for us to solve.
In the last book we saw Chloe come to accept her role as the Oracle; in this book we get to see her exercise her power, and it's awesome. It's about damn time someone reminded these obnoxious gods that they're not in charge, and she is just Oracle to do it. But maybe- just maybe- not all of the gods are as terrible as they seem.
Highly recommended for YA and mythology fans. Now if only Jones would hurry up and get Book Four out, we'd be all set!
