 Son of Set




Son of Set

(Descendants of Isis #2
Published: May 2nd, 2014
Genres: YA,  Fantasy, Mythology



“. . . 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.

 Daughter Of Isis




Daughter Of Isis

Genres: YA,  Fantasy, Mythology

“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.


 

CHARACTER PROFILE:






 NAME: Alison Sanchez
AGE: nearly 19
HAIR COLOR: Dark brown
EYE COLOR: Sapphire
BLESSING: Healing
CLOSEST FRIENDS: Sally Parker
BOYFRIEND: None currently



LIKES: 



The Desert Rat Diner. It’s the place her mother and father started when they settled in Nevada. She loves being surrounded by the things her mother and father love. The movies they would enjoy. The scenery from the places they visited. Even cleaning the plexiglass of the tables is like going through a memory book.

Ramesses. She received Ramesses about two years ago, on her seventeenth birthday, as part of her full indoctrination into the Daughters of Isis. Ever since, he’s been more like a friend than a guide. She could tell him anything, and he wouldn’t judge—much.

Seth. Despite the fact that a) he has the features of the man who ruined her mother’s family; b) he’s a Son of Set and a Charmer; and c) he used his power to manipulate her, she can’t help like Seth. There’s just something about him and what he’s doing for the Secret Keeper that just seems so romantic. Wrong on so many levels, but still romantic.



DISLIKES: 



Turquoise eyes and fair hair men. Ever since her mother told her of her aunt’s strange dreams of a man with extraordinary turquoise eyes and fair hair, Alison tries to stay away from anyone remotely matching the description. She knows it’s silly, but whoever the man was, he basically ruined her mother’s family, and she’ll never forgive him for that.

People missing the obvious. Honestly, how blind can some people be? Even the Daughters’ precious Secret Keeper—a person blessed to seek the truth—is blind to the fact that Seth really and truly loves her and the sacrifice he has made by saving her life. Does she have to start Gibbs-slapping people?

Duty. Alison has already lost her aunt to the pressures of duty as well as her father when he died in the line of duty for his country. She’s sick of it ruining her life, and no matter what the Daughters of Isis or her mother say, she’ll never completely agree that her duty to the gods comes first.


Quote: “My mother,” Alison nodded. “She’s not going to be happy about this. I was instructed to bring you here, not him.” She jerked her thumb at Seth before turning to him. “But you’re a pretty sweet talker, aren’t you?”

One lucky winner will get a was scepter pendant (created specially by SilverspotStudio), a hieroglyphic tote bag, and a Son of Set journal (INT)




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.
