Spotlight is my new regular Saturday feature in which I highlight a book I really enjoyed or am eagerly waiting for. This week it’s a book I really enjoyed: Prophecy of the Most Beautiful by Diantha Jones. (Link leads to my full review.)
She has a destiny so great that even the gods fear her.
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.
That’s not the full blurb (it’s actually quite long), but you get the idea: girl who’s special is an outcast in a small town that thinks she’s crazy until something attacks her and she’s saved to be introduced into a completely different world. This all happens to Chloe, but that’s definitely where the clichés end because Diantha Jones has put her own unique twist on a typical YA premise. And oh boy, what a twist!
Prophecy of the Most Beautiful is very well written and Diantha Jones has done such a good job with the plot that she keeps you guessing until the end. If you’re looking for some unique fantasy to brighten your day, you’ll love this book. But be warned! Upon finishing it you will have no choice but to buy the second book not only because the first one was so good, but because there’s one heck of a cliffhanger at the end.
