Save Me, Pythia
Résumé des tomes
Tome 1 : Pythia lives in Delphi, in Ancient Greece, and between her classes at high school and her part-time job at the temple of Apollo, she leads quite a normal, boring life... until the day that she refuses Apollo's advances and he places upon her a terrible curse. She is now able to predict the future, but whenever she sees a catastrophic event on the horizon, no one believes her warnings and she is helpless to stop it from taking place. However, her new skills draw the interest some of the highest authorities: Zeus, the king of the Gods, entrusts her with a mission. Zeus has fathered yet another bastard child, a boy named Xanthos, and his wife Hera is on the war path. Wherever Xanthos goes, she rains down misfortunes and disasters, but maybe Pythia's prophecies could help the arrogant young Xanthos to survive the wrath of Hera.
Tome 2 : So our motley crew continues on its path to glory (or destruction), as Xanthos, Zeus' bastard son pursues his quest to become a hero, while Pythia tries desperately to keep him out of harm's way with her prophesies. But now they've got company: Elecantha, a nymph from the underworld hired by Acacia to capture Pythia. Somehow they end up partaking in the renowned TV show 'Antiquity's Got Talent', have a run in with a giant fox and a few minor disagreements with a group of centaurs. And that's just the half of it. Never a dull moment where Pythia and Xanthos are concerned.
Tome 3 : In the previous book, Cassandra announced to Xanthos that three unbeatable winged creatures would attack him. Not long after, Pythia a Elecantha lose all trace of Xanthos. Who are these creatures chasing Xanthos? What exactly do they want?
Tome 4 : Pythia and the other residents of Delphi try their best to clear out their city. Meanwhile, Dionysis attempts to reinvent himself as a wine-taster. Completely drunk, Dionysis chugs down the city's entire stock of wine. Apparently the gods can't live together with mortals without causing trouble.
Tome 5 : Back in Ancient Greece, not only have the Gods lost their powers, but the Titans—their vengeful ancestors—have escaped from prison. It's all Xanthos's fault. He may be Zeus's son, but he has a knack for doing the wrong thing—despite warnings from Pythia, the beautiful young oracle who can predict only disaster. So now, the Titans' ruthless leader, Cronus, who devoured his own children to stop them usurping him, is threatening to take over the world. Pythia and Xanthos have finally gotten their act together, but can they defeat Cronus or will he turn them into scroll-ends?
