Review: Son of Set (Giveaway Included!!!)

Book Description Provided by Goodreads: “. . . 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.

Story Line: This story line picks up rights where the first book leaves off, which is when Seth and Natti run from Sean, Seth's father, after he tries to imprison Natti's essence. From there, it just keeps getting better and better as Seth and Natti try to outrun Sean and try to stop his nefarious plan of trying to raise Set.

Relationship: It was fun to read about Natti and Seth's new relationship in this book compared to the one they had in the first book, Daughter of Isis. In this book Natti finally admits to herself that she has definite feelings for Seth, yet she still debates acting on them. I also enjoyed reading about Seth admitting his feelings for her as he's constantly showing Natti how much he cares for her by protecting her from his father!

Natti: Natti, even while under a spell by Sean, continuous to be strong, which is one of the qualities that I really enjoyed reading about in her character. I loved that she was a witty, strong, stubborn, and smart heroine. She quickly has to adapt to new challenges in this book and get past pride and prejudice (lol!) to overcome them.

Seth: I fell in love with Seth's character even more in this book!!! Compared to the first book, Seth has grown so much as a character!! Now in this second book, Seth doesn't just think about himself but he's constantly trying to protect Natti (when he doesn't want to kill her for being so stubborn lol!!!). Plus I loved that more of Seth's good side is revealed in this book compared to his dark side in the first book!!

Overall: I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and couldn't seem to want to put it down! The characters, their romance, their struggles, and even the villain make this book completely awesome!! 

Rating: I would give this book a 9 out of 10!!!
