Review: Son of Set by Kelsey Ketch

Son of Set (Descendants of Isis, #2)

Son of Set (Descendants of Isis #2)

“. . . 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.

The second book of the Descendants of Isis series is as good as the first, if not better. It was more sensual, more fast paced than the first one. I absolutely could not put this book down. You cannot imagine how glad I am that I discovered this author. 

I must tell you that I keep forgetting that Natti is english. I dont know why, and it surprises me when she says very english things. Anywho, she seemed just as strong as ever, but the character I loved a lot more was Seth. Yea, I wanted to bash his face in while reading the first book, but I really grew to wanting to read his POV more and, well, I just love him.

The settings are amazing, and dont get me started on the mythology. Im starting to get really facinated with it, especially Set. This series is the second time I have come across his name, and Im very curious. 

There were some hints that a third book is due, and OMG I cant wait. I have a feeling that its going to get better! So Im waiting anxiously. 

If you have not checked out this series yet, I really suggest that you do! Its totally worth the read.
