Overview

". . . 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.*Note: Content for Upper YA*

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.*

This book was AMAZING.... This book has everything in it: friendship, love, loyalty, heart-break, adventure, puzzles, challenges and so much more. Characters & Storyline: 5/5 Son of Set picks up right where Daughter of Isis ended. You dive right into Seth and Natti being on the run - things are tense and there are so many unanswered questions floating around. Seth and Natti are stuck with each other. Seth realises over the course of the story exactly what he feels for Natti and Natti is trying to figure out what is going on, what she feels and if it is real or just Seth's charm swirling around in her head and heart. I really felt like we got a lot more from Natti this time round. Things are tense between her and Seth, which keeps it exciting! Kelsey tugs at your heart strings at every step of this journey and you cannot help but fall in love with these characters every step of the way. Seth is such an amazing swoon-worth character that he deserves his own little segment... He has grown so much and has sacrificed more than we realise initially! He stole my heart in this book and I think Kelsey has a few secrets and twists up her sleeve. Natti is an amazing character! I connected with her so easily and loved her from the beginning. She is reasonable, reliable and honest. Natti really starts coming into her 'role' from about half way through the book and I cannot wait to see where this goes in 'The Name of Ra'. Plot, Pace, Writing style: 5/5 The plot is intense and the pace is perfect. Kelsey has an easy writing style that just sucks you in at every turn. I can definitely see and appreciate how much hard work and research went into this series. Kelsey has such a beautiful way of weaving the Egyptian mythology theme with the modern day storyline. Kelsey throws in so many great twists that keep you on the edge of your seat! Final Thoughts: This is an awesome series and has definitely made my list of top reads for 2014 so far. If you love Egyptian Mythology and adventure.. Get this series now!!!

I really, really enjoyed this sequel! It was better than the first book, and I love where the story is heading. I love the Egyptian mythology, and I love the characters. In Son of Set, we get more of the mythology, and we also get a lot more character development. Son of Set is the second book in the Descendants of Isis series by Kelsey Ketch. I really enjoyed the first book, Daughter of Isis, but I wish there had been more emphasis on the Egyptian mythology. And in this book, we get a ton more of that! Not only are the main characters on the run, but they also need to figure out the riddle from the locket that Natti's grandmother gave her. It's a riddle to unlocking the location of the secret name of Ra. But they aren't the only ones looking for it.  Natti and Seth are on the run because the Sons of Set are looking for them. Natti escaped, and Seth betrayed them. They aren't going to let them go that easily, especially since they need Natti to find the secret name of Ra so they can resurrect Set and bring about the destruction of the world. But these two can't let that happen. I loved the development of Natti's and Seth's relationship. In the first book, it's really all about Natti trying to shake off Seth's charm. There are still secrets between them, things Natti doesn't know. And being in such close proximity (aka, hotel rooms), their chemistry is bound to explode. But it's hard for Natti to trust Seth after finding out he's a son of Set, especially since his father is the one who almost killed her. Not to mention, she doesn't know if her feelings for him are real, or the work of his charm. And Seth doesn't really know either. But as they run from his father, Seth and Natti have tons of time to sort out their feelings. It brings them closer together, and I loved their relationship.  As for the main characters, I like them both! Natti is a strong, likable heroine who is not afraid to stand up for herself and discover ancient secrets. After being brutalized in the Sons' temple, she's feeling the effects of what happened. But she never gives up. She has her moments of vulnerability, but she doesn't let herself be swept up in Seth's charm. And as for Seth, I really like his character! After growing up as a Son and being brought into that life, he's breaking away from it because of his feelings for Natti. He's protective, strong, and just wants to keep her safe. He's very complex. The only thing, really, that I disliked about this book was the story-line with the Daughters of Isis. I don't know why, but I guess I was just expecting more from that. Secrets were revealed and questions were (somewhat) answered, but I thought they'd be more helpful. I thought they'd be a secret society like the Sons of Set and that they would be able to protect Natti. As it were, we only spend a few chapters with them and that's it.  I really liked where this story headed, and I can't wait for the third (and probably) final book in this series. I'm loving this Egyptian mythology, and I'm hoping for more adventures in Name of Ra. I also can't wait for more development in Natti's and Seth's relationship, and I have a feeling more secrets are still left to be uncovered. Son of Set was like a fast rollercoaster, where our two main characters had to elude dangerous men to discover an ancient secret that has been kept hidden for thousands of years.

Son of Set (Descendants of Isis #2) by Kelsey Ketch Seth O’Keefe was raised as a son of Set, followers of the Egyptian god of disorder.  Their goal is to create chaos and discover the location of Ra’s secrete name from their rivals the Daughter of Isis.   Seth gave up everything by saving the life of the Secret Keeper for the Daughter of Isis, Natara Stone.  Now they are on the run together with the Sons of Set on their heels.   I enjoyed Seth’s character.  He struggles with his dark side, but he has a good heart, even if he doesn’t seem to recognize it.   I admire that he doesn’t conform to his father’s wishes and does what he feels is right.  He is smart and a good protector for Natara. I respect Natara.  She has a lot to process.  She recently discovered she was a Daughter of Isis (in book one).  She has to ascertain things on her own with no mentors.  Her life has been threatened, but she fights to endure.  She is cleaver, strong-willed, and very likable. The chemistry between the two characters is captivating.  Neither knowing if their feelings are real or part of Seth’s charm.  It made me sympathize for the characters and like them all the more. Kelsey Ketch did a great job blending Egyptian Mythology into a contemporary setting.  The plot is well done and original with tons of twist that kept me engrossed.  Son of Set is a well-written and entertaining novel.  I love the surprises that pop up throughout the book, particularly regarding Seth.  This book is definitely worth the read, especially if you enjoy mythology.  I’m really interested in seeing what happens next.

This is an AMAZING Book - Kelsey Ketch out did herself! I loved this book! Physically, mentally, and emotionally battered, a delirious Natara Stone finds herself in a hotel room with the boy she holds responsible for involving her with the Sons of Set and at the same time for saving her from becoming their sacrifice. Her world has been turned upside down overnight and the only person she can trust is Seth. But is he trustworthy? In less than 24 hours, Seth O’Keefe gave up the comforts of being the son of highest priest on the west coast for the Egyptian cult known as the Sons of Set. Marked as a traitor for saving Natti’s life, Seth is now a fugitive who the Sons want dead. He can hardly comprehend why one girl could be worth risking everything for. Was she? Son of Set, Kelsey Ketch’s second novel in the Descendants of Isis series follows the couple as they try to find a safe haven from Seth’s father and his cohorts who are hell bound and determined to recover Natti and bring their god Set back from the dead. The story abounds with intensity as the couple struggles to survive. A rollercoaster ride, this novel takes off where Daughter of Isis left off and exceeds expectations
