Also by this author: Daughter of Isis

“. . . the Sons would never just let him go—alive.”

Seth O’Keefe has broken the laws of his god. He never thought he would sacrifice his own future to protect a Daughter of Isis. But when the Sons of Set discovered Natti is the Secret Keeper, he had no choice. Now, Seth and Natti are on the run from his father, who wants nothing more than to see Seth dead. With no allies, Seth turns to the Daughters of Isis for help, hoping they would protect Natti. But when they meet the Daughters, he discovers a secret that puts both their lives in more danger. Low on options, Seth sees only one possibility for survival. He must help Natti solve an ancient puzzle and find the secret name of Ra.

Natara “Natti” Stone is having a hard time swallowing the truth. She can’t believe what she has learned in the past twenty-four hours: Seth is a Son of Set blessed with charm; she is a Daughter of Isis blessed with a sliver of Ma ‘at; the locket her grandmother gave her holds an ancient Egyptian secret linking to Osiris and Isis. That along with being tortured and brutalized by the Sons of Set, she can hardly hold herself together. Thank God for Seth’s touch! That warm, tingling sensation that drowns it all out. Yet her heart struggles to stay focused. She must quickly embrace her destiny before the secret name of Ra falls into the wrong hands.

bookreview

Son of Set picks up right where Daughter of Isis leaves off.  I have mixed feelings about some characters, but we get some awesome realizations in this book!

I still don’t know how I feel about Seth.  I think he’s admirable because he’s risked everything to help Natti, but he still uses his magic on her.  That bugs me.  If it’s something they both agreed on then I’m cool with it, but it seems like he does it to calm her down when she asks questions he doesn’t want to answer.  I still love Natti.  She’s a fighter.  She doesn’t back down even when she’s told she should.  She also continues to fight in what she believes in, part of that is Seth, and the other part is information.  I also never realized how demented Sean, Seth’s dad, was until this book. He’s downright scary.

There are so many awesome things that happen in Son of Set.  It’s like a game of cat and mouse between Sean and Seth & Natti.  Sean needs Natti back, and he doesn’t care what happens in order to get her.  A large part of the book is also how Seth and Natti feel for each other.  It doesn’t overshadow what’s actually happening too much. I did think that Natti needed to try to distance herself a little more to get a clear perspective.  I’m ready for the next book, and can’t wait to see where that leads us.

Son of Set is well written, full of angst, and action.

    That would be a conundrum! The feminist side of me might not like him using his magic on Natti, but I loved Seth even when he was a jerk LOL.

      I still have a love/hate relationship with that boy. But I guess it’s all a learning process for them since they are pretty much opposites in every way.
