Synopsis: In a modern world ruled by territorial Greek gods, the human race has been oppressed, exploited and now, nearly destroyed by the constant infighting of gods.
However, a human girl with the power of a goddess is coming of age. Alessandra is the Oracle of Delphi – the last prophesized – and bears the mark of the double omega. Soon after she turns eighteen, Alessandra is told her destiny: to step between the warring gods and the human race and save her world from certain ruin.
For the gods, her appearance marks the beginning of the end – their end. They and the Triumvirate – leaders of the human elite – who serve them will stop at nothing to preserve their power.
Alessandra emerges from the forest where she spent her life hidden from gods and men and immediately plummets into a race against time, gods, and herself to discover who and what she is in a world where everyone she meets has a hidden agenda, and those pulling the strings remain in the shadows.
Before she can determine exactly what kind of savior her world needs, she must first master her power by completing three trials devised by the Triumvirate to enslave her.
One lone girl stands between warring gods and the people she’s destined to protect, but it’s the battle to understand who she is that she must win first.
This author has loads of books out, and I've read a few of them and loved them! I'm head over heels in love with the cover of this book, so I knew I had to read the story behind it! I've also read a couple of books that centre around Greek gods before, so I was looking forward to reading this one, and it sounded amazing! I also received a proof ARC from the author before I was accepted on this Blog Tour, so I had started to read it! I enjoyed this book! It was a brilliant fantasy book and had such an interesting plot! Like the other books from this author that I've read, I also had to read every word in this book to understand the plot lol! I tend to sometimes skim a page if there's a lot of unnecessary description, but I felt like I missed a lot if I did that with this book! I also haven't read the Omega Beginnings Miniseries, so it did take me a few chapters to full understand what was going on in the plot lol! I loved the plot though, and it developed so well! There was romance, mystery and a bit of action! This book also took me like a week to get through lol! I enjoyed it though, and it was very unique! The characters were also awesome! Alessandra 'Lyssa' was the main character, and she was someone that had a lot of responsibility on her shoulders, but wasn't aware of just how much responsibility! I loved Alessandra! She stood up for herself and she wanted to restore peace and freedom in the world! I had so much respect for Alessandra and she came a long way in this book! She was quite naïve at the start, as she didn't really know anything about her power, but as the book progressed she learned who she was and she learned about the amount of power she had! There were also quite a few secondary characters in this book, and they all added a lot to the plot! Some characters where good and some were bad! There were also a few that I wasn't sure what to think about lol! I would say that the main secondary characters were Niko, Dosy, Herakles and Adonis, and each one added something different to the plot! Niko was the bad guy, Dosy was Alessandra's friend (I think lol), Herakles was the father figure in Alessandra's life, and I would say that Adonis was Alessandra's love interest! This book was mainly written from Alessandra's point of view, but there were a few more different point of views in it too! The different point of views added a lot to the plot and they let you find out more about what was going on in the plot! I can't wait to read the next book in this series! I enjoyed this book, even if I did have to read every sentence to understand it all lol, and I can't wait to see where it's going to go next! The ending was also left at a really good and satisfying place! It wasn't a big cliff-hanger, but it wasn't resolved or anything! I would also recommend reading the Omega Beginnings Miniseries, before this book! The cover for this book is absolutely stunning! I loved it as soon as I saw it and it suits the book so well! Big thank you to Lizzy for an ARC of Omega and to Xpresso Book Tours for having me on the Blog Tour!
