Omega by Lizzy Ford book review!
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 saviour 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 absolutely loved this book! I’m not usually the one to enjoy books about Gods and Mythology but this book really surprised me and even made me see a whole new genre I may like!
The main protagonist Alessandra was a very enjoyable, funny and kick ass character. I couldn’t stop myself to take a break from reading. Lizzy did an awesome job creating a character that was so easy to love and feel as though you were her in her body going through the things she did.
One of the things I really liked was having the Gods as the rulers of the world and seeing it in a different perspective to usual books was really intriguing and unique.
Omega was a face paced, funny and adventure packed booked filled with Greek Gods, action and mystery. Must read for all the lovers of Mythology and Greek Gods!
