Review of Phiobe by Lizzy Ford

****  Review Time  ****
Phoibe (Omega Beginnings Miniseries Book 3)
By Lizzy Ford

~ Synopsis ~

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.
~Review ~
This is the 3rd book in Lizzy Ford's OMEGA Beginnings Miniseries. Alessandra is the first book, and Mismatch is the second. I have thoroughly enjoyed each of them.
This book focuses on a sweet little girl that's facing some really big issues. Phoibe is being groomed  her for her role as the Crown Princess of Greece. She longs to become as incredible as the woman her mother was, but because of her speech impediment, the High Priestess has been mistreating an abusing her. She has found a comfort in a ghostly creature name Lantos. He is her only true friend until Mismatch shows up. He makes a promise to return for her and bring her to safety. He also bring a warning: Do not speak until he returns for her, or she something terrible will come to pass. But trouble abounds, and something must be done. When Mismatch doesn't come back as promised, she's faced with a life altering decision. Does she speak and seal her fate as the others before her have done, or will she put her trust in her shadow friend Lantos?
Each book in this series bring more action than the last. The characters really pull at your heart strings. I can't wait to see what happens in book 4 of this miniseries!
