Do you know Kelsey Ketch’s Seth O’Keefe from Descendants of Isis?

If you have read Daughter of Isis and Son of Set, you may have noticed a few things about Seth that make his life more challenging that the average teen. Seth Amahte’ O’Keefe is named after his god, Set and his gift, Amahte’ [Egyptian word meaning ‘to have the power over’]. He ‘rules’ his own world at his high school, but he faces serious ridicule at home from his cruel and overbearing father. Some things about Seth worth noting:
1. Seth has copper hair and turquoise eyes, unusual combination compared with many leading male characters.
2. Seth shows genuine concern for his mother, being fully aware that he is not supposed to care.
3. Seth is a bit less enthusiastic about creating total mayhem unlike his friends, Ky and Q.
4. Seth’s father has Seth’s life completely mapped out, including going to Yale and becoming the future Hem-netjer.
5. Seth wants to create his own path and is fed up with his father.
6. Seth’s friends are happy to capitalize on his abilities for their own advantage.
7. Seth has his demons and they can be overwhelming and extremely frightening.
8. Seth has weaknesses and tries to face them.
9. Seth is obviously attracted to Natti, but there seems to be something about her that makes him want to treat her differently than is current clan of ‘groupies.’
10. Seth is growing which makes him an interesting character to read.

If you have been waiting to read Daughter of Isis and Son of Set, maybe this insight into Seth will convince you to give them a try. Seth is a total hottie, check out the Son of Set cover!

Ten Things I like about Kelsey Ketch’s Natara Stone [Natti]

If you have read Daughter of Isis by Kelsey Ketch, you know that Kelsey puts a lot of thought into her characters. To begin with, the name Natara in Arabic means sacrifice. It also provides a great nickname, Natti, which sounds like the slang word, natty which is an adjective meaning smart and fashionable. For example, she wore a natty jacket and designer jeans.
So who is Natti?
Natti is from London, England where she lived a normal life. She went to school, she had a circle of friends, took tennis lessons at the Sutton Academy, and lived with her father, the world-renowned author Alexander Stone.
Then unexpectedly, Natti and her father moved from London to a small town in the California High Desert. Her new life presented some extraordinary challenges. Here is why I like her.
1. Natti is stunning, but she does not capitalize on that fact.
2. Natti is intelligent, but does not flaunt it.
3. Natti has a great deal of common sense.
4. Natti chooses her friends very carefully, and is very loyal.
5. Natti is nobody’s fool; she knows when someone is trying to take advantage.
6. Natti loves her family and respects her father.
7. Natti misses her home, but tries to adapt to her new world.
8. Natti likes to try new things.
9. Natti can sense that something is not quite right and heeds that feeling.
10. Natti has a great, subtle sense of humor.

If you read Daughter of Isis, what do you like about Natara Stone? If not, maybe you might find something to like if you do.

Burn Out by Kristi Helvig

To sum up how I felt about this book, I can only say – where’s the sequel, Kristi?
I am very impressed with the world that Kristi Helvig built, and all the devices that were required to maintain life. I fell in love with Tora’s backstory, and personally a well built back story truly is the core of a book. I felt like I knew her family and admired her father and his attempt to prevent his inventions from falling into the wrong hands.
The character development was amazing. Tora is kick butt and vulnerable. James is a man of mystery and a hunk, but I am not sure how I feel about him. Markus reminds me of Han Solo from Star Wars or Malcolm Reynolds from Fire Fly. I was nervous about the introduction of Alec so late in the book, but with Lucy tagging along – you just knew he was a sweet guy. That leaves Kale and he is seems to be shaping up into a perfect villain.
This is a great read. Thank you, Kristi Helvig
