“. . . 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.

Okay, so Son of Set was a good time! Just the right amount of everything. Not too rushed and the romance wasn’t overbearing! Better than the first one in my opinion, which is what I was hoping!
I still don’t really like Seth. I think he’s great because he’s risked everything to help Natti, but he still uses his magic on her. That really irritates me, I mean if they had talked about it and It had been okay with Natti then maybe it wouldn’t be so bad. BUT he seems to be doing it so that he can avoid answering her questions, which is just wrong.
I still love Natti. She’s a fighter. She doesn’t back down even when she’s told she should. She also continues to fight in what she believes in. OH and I also never realized how demented Sean, Seth’s dad, was until this book. He’s downright scary. There are so many awesome things that happen in Son of Set and I’m ready for the next book! I can’t wait to see where that leads us.
*I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.*
