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.
I love reading, just like you all. Every once in a while you come across a book that reminds you why you fell in love with reading in the first place. A story that takes you on an epic adventure filled with love, friendship, betrayal, growth, discovery and heartbreak. Omega is that book.
I love Lizzy Ford. She writes great books. I own at least one book in every series she’s written. The Omega Beginnings is one of my favorites. I’ve read all 8 and I loved almost every character with the exception of 2. Two characters completely entwined in a way only a father and son could be. Only 1 character redeemed himself. But it seems 2 other beloved characters had to become monsters for him to become great.
I absolutely hated reading how far these characters had fallen in twelve years. I hated reading what monsters they had become. I felt sick. It felt like such a deep betrayal… And that made me love this book even more. It made me feel. I was invested in these characters and their story. I needed to know why they changed. I wanted to slap sense into them.
I loved reading how strong Alessandra had become and seeing that she didn’t lose her attitude. The interactions between her and Adonis made me swoon.
Greek mythology has always been a favorite of mine but this took if to a whole new level. I’m literally teaming with excitement, I need to read Theta, book 2 in the series, and I’m an impatient woman by nature lol so 2016 seems like too long a wait.
The characters in this tale are strong and very independent… both the good and the bad and the women are not only intriguing but very self-sufficient so that most definitely calls out to the tough girl in me.
An epic book with epic characters that I can’t compare to anything I’ve ever read. This is most definitely a series I’ll enjoy exploring.
