“. . . 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.

Ooooh… what a thrilling sequel in the Descendants of Isis series!! Son of Set continues immediately after the ending of the first book and I was quickly taken on a trip over the country as Nattie and Seth are trying to stay out of Sean’s evil hands!! It was exciting and I was quickly flicking the pages to see how things unfolded.

Throughout the journey Nattie and Seth both learn a lot more about each other: their secrets are revealed, their powers grow stronger and their feelings come to the surface. They become closer, but are they are not sure whether their powers are influencing their feelings. There was constant danger for them and they were looking over their shoulders at every turn. I loved watching them grow and learn more about everything; the whole situation comes into focus for them both. They struggle but know they can rely on one another in the end.

I love a good villain in a story and Sean continuously sends tingles down my spine! He is evil and will do anything in his power to get what he wants. He will murder anyone, erase minds and take more women in his cause to raise his God, Set. He is the type of character that sticks in your mind and hope that you never cross paths with.

Nattie and Seth need to unravel some riddles on this journey and I loved the little Egyptian translations thrown into the story. Getting more insight into the Egyptian Gods and the prophecies that Kelsey is building up is intriguing too. I am captivated by the plot that Kelsey has created and I’m really eager to see how Seth and Nattie will go in the next book. I can feel the storyline building and I’m expecting plenty of twists to come out of this modern day tale of Mythology!
