“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.

During her high school years, Kelsey Ketch could always be found tucked away in a little corner of the hall or classroom, writing her fantasy worlds and creating illustrations and maps. Today is no different, except now she’s writing in the break room at her office building or at the tables of the Barnes and Noble Café in Cary, North Carolina. She is also an avid reader, a part-time book blogger at Ketch’s Book Nook, and lives with her two orange tabbies and awesome and humorous flat-mate. Daughter of Isis is her debut novel.

I've always been fascinated with ancient mythology, especially Egyptian.  The synopsis and idea for this story was completely fascinating- Ancient Egyptian mythology, in a modern day setting.  The "Sons of Set" sounded very interesting, along with the tension that seemed to be between Seth and Natti.  When the opportunity to read and review came up, I knew I had to see if the book was as amazing as it's cover.

Seth is a guy who is truly too-good-to-be-true.  He's gorgeous, alluring, confident, charming, and completely dangerous for a girl to be around.  Netti is the kind of girl most of us look up to (not the fake cheerleader, the other girl).  She's beautiful, honest, strong, yet laid back, holds tightly to her self-respect, and isn't afraid to call someone on their lies and wrong behavior.  Between the two, they create an interesting combination, and when you add in the Ancient Egyptian mysteries and secrets, their story is completely addicting.

The writing in this book was very good.  Kelsey Ketch smoothly goes between the two main characters' point-of-view, never missing a beat of the story.  She is also very fluid in her mixture of British terminology on Netti's part, with the American terminology of everyone else in the story.  Overall, this book was very entertaining, and is one I would recommend.
