Phoibe (Omega Beginnings Miniseries Book 3)

With a speech impediment and learning disability, the frail six-year-old Crown Princess of Greece is constantly being told she’ll never live up to the woman her mother was. She’s the only descendent of the sacred Bloodline, the royal family touched by the Greek Gods ten thousand years before, and protected by international law.

But Phoibe doesn’t care about any of that. She wants to be loved by someone, and that someone is a mysterious shadow named Lantos who talks to her when no one else will.

Before leaving, the gargoyle Mismatch made her promise never to speak aloud again, or she’ll seal her fate, and the family curse will claim her. She obeys him – and faces the wrath of cruel caretakers sworn to ensure the curse comes to pass.

When Mismatch doesn’t return to save her, young Phoibe must make her first grown-up decision: accept the curse or trust the shadowy creature who tries to help her.

Not as great as Mismatch
By Honeybun's (4.0 out of 5 stars) on July 9, 2016
Although Mismatch is still my favorite this was pretty good too. This one was definitely more heart breaking though but worth the read. Especially if your keeping up with all of them

Five Stars

Refusing The Curse
By Nocturnus (5.0 out of 5 stars) on May 1, 2016
This series must be read in order. The first book is Alessandra. The second book is Mismatch. This is the third book. I can't wait to read Lantos!Phoibe is trying her best to he patient while she awaits rescue from her cloistered life by Mismatch. She has to tell her shadow friend Lantos about Mismatch, the Curse, and his plan to save her from it... Then she will keep her promise to never speak again. What can it hurt to tell her only friend the secrets she just learned? Will he be happy for her? Is Lantos really just a shadow? Will she be able to keep silent long enough to be rescued? Or will the High Priestess' cruelty break her? Is her mother truly a grotesque now? Can she find and free her?***This series is suitable for young adult through adult readers who enjoy paranormal in their modern fantasy suspense thrillers filled with the Old Gods and a bit of scifi 🙂

Highly recommend

I am a huge Lizzy Ford fan, I highly recommend this series and anything else that Lizzy has written, this is very imaginative. This is a short story part of larger series of short stories that lead up to a larger book. Great way to learn about the principle characters and their backgrounds. Highly recommend the whole Omega series.

This is Awesome. But Don't Cheat.
By Lizzie Malone (4.0 out of 5 stars) on December 27, 2015
My daughter and I have a long standing saying. It is " we don't cheat of a book." We don't sneak a peek at the end of a book. And we don't sneak a peek at the next book, especially while reading the one before. But This Book Right Here, it almost made me break my promise. Sneaky sneaky Lizzy, you almost got me.

Wonderful
By Marsha Jeanne Thalleen (5.0 out of 5 stars) on December 2, 2015
Phoibe by Lizzy Ford is the third segment in the Omega Beginnings Miniseries. It is the best so far. This one runs a bit deeper into the story line and this particular set of characters, yet leaves plenty to mystery. The characters and creatures are very descriptively visual that this segment came alive for me. Very well done.

Loving these miniseries books!

I am loving these short books. Can't wait to get to Omega.

The Flawed Little Princess
By Rae Sontheyon (@Hey, It Was Free!) (5.0 out of 5 stars) on October 5, 2015
For the third book readers are introduced to the young heir of Greece, the princess Phoibe. Tucked away from society, taught and raised by the priestesses Phoibe has only felt alone and fear. Her mother was the only kind person to her, but after her mother died and left her in the hands of the temple, Phoibe has known nothing but shame for her shortcomings. Phoibe prayed for a savior and Mismatch came promising to not only take her away but save her from the same fate he had fallen to and those in their bloodline. Knowing her mother is not dead but semi-alive in the grotesque state Phoibe is ready to venture out beyond the High Priestesses reach and search for her mother. If only she could outlast the Priestess while awaiting Mismatch return, her only friend and sense of strength is found in a shadow named Lantos. In the end he may just be her last hope of deliverance. Overall, heartbreaking story, Poor Phoibe is only 6 years old and has so much thrust upon her with responsibilities and politics that it's unimaginable to believe she is only a child. That High Priestess is pure evil and the things she does to innocent Phoibe makes you want to cry for the young girl. Seeing how strong Phoibe is now definitely shows she will only become a stronger character in the books to come.------Read more of my reviews at: http://heyitwasfree.blogspot.com/------
