Blog Tour: Daughter of Isis by Kelsey Ketch

Daughter of Isis

ARC for Review

Summary 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.

The way I see it

Daughter of Isis was an interesting and CHARMING ;) read. I am a huge fan of Egypt culture so it was nice seeing names and bits of lore that I recognized. The book kept me engaged and it flowed nicely. I read Daughter of Isis really really quickly because I was dying to know what was going to happen.  

D-aring, a move or an escape? Natti and her father move away from London to stay safe.
A-rrangement, everyone at Setemple High has their place. Natti refuses to take hers beneath Seth.
U-rges, something dark and destructive pulls on Seth’s emotions. 
G-uilt, just when Natti feels she has Seth figured out he does something that is quite opposite.
H-elp, together Natti and her friends take a stand against the jerks of Setemple High.
T-emper, Ky one of Seths brothers seems to be more braun than anything else. 
E-yes, Seth is very hypnotizing and it seems no one else sees it but Natti.
R-esigned, surrounded by the oddities of Natti’s strange new town so consistantly it’s seemed to become her norm.

O-ffspring, Seth and his buddy’s are sweet innocent lambs compared to Sean the Son’s of Set Hem-netjer.
F-rustration, as much as Netti has fought her feelings she can’t deny that something is developing between her and Seth.

I-mages and dreams, Natti knows there is more but it remains slightly out of her reach.
S-eth, is faced with a difficult decission and realizes his heart. He will do something no one expects.
I-nstantly, things have come to a head nothing can ever remain the same, the town structure will shatter.
S-urprise, no one could see this coming Set seems to have won.

Now for the...

*Hard Facts*
All of the Sons of Set are A Holes.
I want to create chaos in the temple of the chaos god.
During 90% of the book I was yelling at either Natti or the SoS.
The ending is INTENSE(Amazing!!) BUT also a CLIFFHANGER!! Gah!
Insert red puffy tantrum face here____!!


The characters have some growing to do and I’m sure they will. Seth proves himself to me! He’s got some butt kissin to do but I’m all in! Now that Natti FINALLY KNOWS!! She’s gonna embrace who she is and GET-ER-DUN I enjoyed this book throughly and I have a feeling its only going to get better! 

My Rating

4.0 London, Bas, Cooper, Pyramid, Tennis, Charm, Truth, Feather, Kiss, Slave, Isis, Set, Priests, Daring to lose it all filled stars! For those that like fantasy and legends, Egypt and Cali collide to bring you a story full of frustration, angst, and mystery!
