Daughter of Isis (Descendants of Isis, #1)
by Kelsey Ketch
Release Date: 10/26/13

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.

My Review:

The following review is my opinion and not a paid review. I received a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.

Natarra Stone or Natti as she prefers to be called lived in London and she loved living there. But her family ran into a little trouble so her Dad and some other people thought it would be a good idea if they moved. So Natti and her Dad move to America. On her first day at her new school in America there was some strange things going on that she couldn't quite put her finger on. She didn't know what was going on if anything but she was having some weird feelings or some strange things that she couldn't place.

Seth had any girl he wanted in school. All of the girls would just swoon whenever he was around. All of them wanted to be with him. Every one of the girls knew about the other and had no problem with him being with all the others. When Natti showed up on the scene Seth wanted her as well. But Natti was immune to his power and could not be charmed by him. She knew BS when she heard it. She knew he was shooting her a line of crap and didn't fall for it although her body was telling her a different story. But even though her body wanted him it did confuse her because she didn't know if she really wanted him or if he was just putting some kind of spell on her like he did all the other girls.

Seth couldn't figure out what was happening to him. Why could or was Natti resisting him when all the other girls just fell at his feet and was always doing his bidding? How could Natti just refuse him like that? Seth couldn't understand it but all he could think about was Natti. He was beginning to have a heart. He didn't want to hurt all of the girls anymore. I think he was good along he was just raised to take any girl he wanted just because he could and that was the thing to do. It was all he knew. It was what his father had taught him. Girls/women's feelings didn't matter. All that matter was if they followed their god Set and did as they were told. The god Set is all that matters.

Natti has a secret that she knows nothing about. A secret someone else wants and will kill her for. Natti's "boyfriend" Seth knows she is in danger even if she does not. Once he realizes that he has fallen in love with her then he is willing to do whatever it takes to keep her alive even if it means that he will have to die. Seth has been taught all his life that falling in love with a woman makes a man weak and it must never happen. A man can take any and as many women as he wants as long as he does not fall in love. That is the ultimate sin in his religion. But once the old love bug bites him he will fight until the death to save the woman he loves.

Daughter of Isis is filled with so many twist and turns that you don't know which way is up and which way is down. I loved all the mystery that is contains. I would be reading along and fall right into Natti and Seth's world no longer knowing that mine existed. I had to keep reading to find out what happened next. The ending will blow you away and have you turning around in circles like a dog chasing its tail. At first I was like what? No way man. I need the next book now, please. There will be a next book right? At least I hope so. The ending may blow you away but it will definitely keep you hanging on for the next book in the series.
