Son of Set by Kelsey Ketch
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
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.
