  Prophecy Of The 


Most Beautiful






Prophecy of the Most Beautiful 
Diantha Jones
(Oracle of Delphi #1)
Published: March 1st, 2012 
Genres: YA, Paranormal, Fantasy


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. Fed up with prescription meds and therapists, she wishes for 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.

After a vicious attack and learning that her favorite rockstar is an Olympian god, she is thrust into her new life as the Oracle of Delphi, the prophesier of the future. Setting out to fulfill the prophecy she has been given, Chloe learns of how great she is to become, all the while fighting mythical monsters and trying to outwit the ever-cunning Greek gods who harbor secrets of their own. While on a mission to discover the Most Beautiful, she strives to uncover the mysteries of the demigod Prince who has sworn to protect her with his life…and threatens to win her heart in the process.

Diantha Interviews L.A., the lead singer of Divinity…and Apollo, god of the Sun  


His arms slide around my waist and his lips are at my ear before my brain can even register surprise. He pulls me back into him.

L.A: Miss me?

DJ: (I turn in his tattooed arms)(I smile sweetly) Not in the slightest.

L.A: (Returning the smile, he kisses my hand) Still beautiful, I see.

DJ: Laying the flattery on thick kind of early, yeah?

L.A: Yes. Is it working?

DJ: Of course, it is.

With a grin, L.A. leaves me by the window and makes his beautiful self comfortable on my red suede sofa. Leaning his guitar (which is always with him) against one arm of the couch, he props his combat boots up on the other. He settles back, folds his hands behind his head of jet black dreadlocks, and looks at me expectantly.

DJ: (I sit down across from him) I didn’t prepare any questions for you.

L.A: I know.

DJ: (smiling) So is it cool if we just chat it up a little then?

L.A: (corner of his mouth creeps up) I wouldn’t mind it.

DJ: So, how is life on the road Mr. Famous-Rockstar-Who-Is-Also-a-Greek-god?

L.A: Life is grand. Have you been to any of my shows?

DJ: (shrugs) I might have.

L.A: (flashes a naughty grin) So those were your undergarments that were thrown on stage. Thought I recognized them.

DJ: (flicks him off) You have never seen my undergarments, and you never will.

L.A: So says you.

DJ: (rolls eyes) So there’s a new Oracle, huh?

L.A: Yes. And it’s about time too. I was getting impatient.

DJ: Were you? Why?

L.A: You know why. Chloe Clever knows things. Fate has chosen her.

DJ: I thought you chose her.

L.A: Only because Fate dictated it. It’s all about Fate, Miss Jones.

DJ: What is?

L.A: Everything.

DJ: What does Chloe know?

L.A: She knows all that she needs to. It’s just going to take a while for her to realize it.

DJ: (I narrow my eyes) I think you know a lot more than you’re telling me.

L.A: (chuckles) I won’t bother denying it. I do.

Annoyed, I point to the window.

DJ: I can see the black castle.

He doesn’t look surprised.

L.A: I knew you would eventually. This is good though. For you, that is.

DJ: What do you mean?

L.A: (smiles) You’ll figure that out soon enough. (yawns) Oh my, look at the time. (He hasn’t even glanced at the clock.) I really should be going. I have a show later.

In an instant, we are standing by the window again and I’m wrapped in his arms.

L.A: Want to come with me? I promise to give you the VIP treatment (winks)

DJ: You’re such a perv.

L.A: You enjoy every second of it.

I don’t argue. I do.

L.A: Fame calls, beautiful. When will I see you again?

DJ: I don’t know. Probably sooner than you think. I plan on beating everything you didn’t tell me this round, out of you the next time.

L.A: (laughs) I look forward to it.

He kisses my hand again, then vanishes in a brilliant flash of light.

I’m blinded for a second, but it doesn’t last. I stare out of the window up at the black castle wondering what L.A. could have meant about it being a good thing that I could actually see the stuff I wrote about. I mean, I talked to the characters, saw castles in the sky and was pretty sure if I kept this up, I’d be seeing the inside of a looney bin next.

Suddenly, a presence fills the space behind me.

“Is it my turn to be interviewed yet?” A voice says. “I just have so much to tell you.”

I turn around.

And scream.








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 series in the works. She also writes (new) adult fantasy/paranormal romance under the name A. Star.
