Kelsey Ketch’s Descendant’s of Isis Series

doiDaughter of Isis (Descendants of Isis #1) By Kelsey Ketch Release Date: October 26nd, 2013 Upper Young Adult Fantasy

Summary from Goodreads:

“Her mouth parted slightly, waiting for Seth to breathe life into her own body, just like in the story. She wanted him to awaken her senses.” Their worlds collide in California’s high desert. The last thing Natara “Natti” Stone wants to do is to start anew at Setemple High School. She wished she had never left London. Yet the brutal murder of her maternal grandmother has made her life very complicated. The only clue related to her murder is an ancient, encrypted necklace Natti discovered after her grandmother’s death. And if trying to adjust to American life is not enough, Natti is being stalked by a mysterious, charming high school senior, Seth O’Keefe, who is annoyingly persistent in his attempts at seduction. Seth O’Keefe is secretly a member of the Sons of Set, an order that worships the Egyptian god of chaos. Seth’s blessing from Set, his “charm,” never failed, except with one person: Natti Stone. Her ability to elude him infatuates and infuriates him, and he becomes obsessed with the chase. But the closer he gets to her, the more his emotions take a dangerous turn, and he risks breaking one of the most valued covenants of his order. The punishment for which is a fate worse than death. The adventure this unlikely couple becomes engulfed in could cost them their lives and their souls. *Note: Content for Upper YA*

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.
