Welcome to my post for the Son of Set book tour! I have a review coming up, as well as a giveaway for a pendant, a tote, and a Son of Set journal. But, first, allow me to introduce the book:
Release date: May 2, 2014
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Series: 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 oewww f 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.
My Rating: 4 Roses
Natti was great in this book. Even on the run from the Sons of Set, she was determined not to take the easy way out and figure out how to end it once and for all. She was even stronger than she was in book 1 and I still liked her.
Seth was still a bit of a conundrum. In this book, his struggle to shed the dark influence of Set was clear. He fought between what he knew was right and what his instincts told him to do. And I revelation about his heritage made his struggles even more precarious. I went back and forth between liking him for how hard he tried to do what was right and protect Natti and being frustrated with him when he regressed. But, overall, he was a delightfully complex character that I liked.
The romance was good. It grew, while, at the same time, questions were raised about its validity. Natti and Seth grew closer while they were on the run, but this book didn't shy away from asking if their relationship was real, or founded on Seth's influence. Regardless, I thought they were sweet together, doubts and all.
The plot was well paced and I was hooked then entire way through. There were tons of thrills along the way, plus some secrets that I never saw coming. I really enjoyed the story and the ending has me curious about what will happen next. Can't wait to read book 3!
Son of Set was a wonderful YA read. It was a fantastic sequel, full of romance, secrets, and thrills, and I really enjoyed reading it. Fans of book 1, you won't be disappointed. And, YA lovers, this is a series worth checking out.
