10-27-2013 5-41-36 PMTitle: Daughter of Isis

Author: Kelsey Ketch

Genre: Older Young Adult

Release Date: October 26, 2013

Description (from Goodreads): 

“Her mouth parted slightly, waiting for Seth to breathe life into her own body, just like in the story. She wanted him to awaken her senses.”

 Their worlds collide in California’s high desert.

 The last thing Natara “Natti” Stone wants to do is to start anew at Setemple High School. She wished she had never left London. Yet the brutal murder of her maternal grandmother has made her life very complicated. The only clue related to her murder is an ancient, encrypted necklace Natti discovered after her grandmother’s death. And if trying to adjust to American life is not enough, Natti is being stalked by a mysterious, charming high school senior, Seth O’Keefe, who is annoyingly persistent in his attempts at seduction.

 Seth O’Keefe is secretly a member of the Sons of Set, an order that worships the Egyptian god of chaos. Seth’s blessing from Set, his “charm,” never failed, except with one person: Natti Stone. Her ability to elude him infatuates and infuriates him, and he becomes obsessed with the chase. But the closer he gets to her, the more his emotions take a dangerous turn, and he risks breaking one of the most valued covenants of his order. The punishment for which is a fate worse than death.

 The adventure this unlikely couple becomes engulfed in could cost them their lives and their souls.

Review:

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

Daughter of Isis has a good concept and is full of Egyptian mythology. The fight between good and evil and the power of love over evil played a big part in this book. Kelsey Ketch’s writing flows well and is easy to read. There was a bit more detailed description than I like but that is a personal preference.

The characters take a little while to get to know but I’m sure that’s intentional because their characters are revealed as the story requires. Nattie is a strong girl who has had to deal with the deaths of her mother and grandmother. Her dad is a great guy but the rest of the men in the book, except for a teacher, are evil.

The power that Seth and his dad have is hard to believe. The way they’re able to get away with anything and have no one question what is going on in the town didn’t set well with me.

The end was full of action and suspense. And it leaves you wanting, or rather needing, to know what’s going to happen next…

I believe Daughter of Isis would be worth your time. You can purchase it at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Kobo.
