“. . . 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.
Son of Set was a breathtaking, addicting sequel! I adored Kelsey Ketch’s first novel, Daughter of Isis, and I am extremely excited to report that I loved the second book just as much!
The characters are so likable and unique! In the beginning, Natti is shocked and scared after the terrible events in Daughter of Isis. However, she still keeps going and plans to side with the Daughters of Isis against the Sons. I admired her fierceness and determination.
I liked Seth a lot more in this novel. After a lifetime of being taught horrible ideas and lifestyles from his father, Seth is finally realizing how to be a better person. He and Natti made a delightful couple! Also, we make a startling revelation about Seth’s mother that I didn’t see coming!
Finally, I must mention Seth’s father and other villains. There are many chapters devoted to their POVs. Honestly, these chapters were horrifying, cold, and gave me a birds-eye view into our villains scary minds. I applaud the author for creating three dimensional characters.
Son of Set is a wild race infused with romance, well-researched Egyptian mythology, fast paced adventure, and awesome writing. I can’t recommend this series highly enough! I guarantee you will stay up until late at night to finish... Yes, I am speaking from experience.
