First, I won this book in a goodreads giveaway. So, thank you to all parties involved in getting my free copy to me ;3

As for the book itself, I really did not like it at all. The plot line was... interesting. That much is true, but the path to getting there was rocky and rather boring. I wanted to put this book down several times and simply give up on it. From the long lectures about the stars and astronomy, to the overly detailed points of natal charts, I was severely lost. When reading, I want

When I first started reading this book, I knew that I was in for something beyond anything I had read thus far. I have been pretty stuck on fantasy lately, and was expecting just another fantasy novel. What I got was so much more. Ms. Obodo has achieved something here I have not seen before. There is fantasy, yes, but it starts out reading more like a sci-fi novel and then blends into a combination of sci-fi and fantasy. It was such a perfect marriage of the two genres.

When you meet Memphis, she

This book fits snugly into the paranormal genre, but it has an essence of Sci-Fi to add a little character.
I started reading this book a few months ago and gave up after a few chapters, because the sentences seemed a tad off. I came back to the book this week, started reading and was quite interested in some of the ideas the author came up with.
Mixing horoscopes, chakras, the third eye, unknown galaxies and strange powers was indeed a whole new way to explore the genre.
Halfway through the book t

This one was a mixed bag for me. I enjoyed the underlying story line and Memphis was a great character. We met some wonderful characters near the end but didn’t get to learn much about them. I was surprised by who a few of the characters actually turned out to be. There were many sections which felt like long lectures on astronomy, astrophysics, the stars and natal charts. This was a bit too much to take in. It was a very short story so some parts of the book felt rushed. The cliff hanger ending ...more

I enjoy Egyptian mythology and astrology, as well as a good romance and thriller, so theoretically I should have enjoyed this. But I didn't. There were so many great ideas and concepts, but the execution was terrible and the writing was so predictable, I couldn't be surprised at any of the twists when they came up. Not to mention there was too much scientific information presented that I ended up skimming a good portion of it, simply to continue with the plot. This book feels very unrefined and ...more

I have no comment about the story but do want to comment on the cover. The protagonist is black. Why is the lady on the cover white with red hair? Is it supposed to be her? Or just some lady? Who picked a white lady for the cover? I hope they just didn't read the book, not that they based their choice on something else, like that books with black people on the fronts are less appealing, or another dumb reason.

I enjoyed the beginning of Rise of the Wadjet Witch. Main character Memphis has a mysterious past and her process of discovering it makes for good reading. I appreciated the background on chackras, astrology, etc., as much of it was new to me and the rest I needed a refresher. But the last part of the book switched from a tale of discovery to an action adventure. A lot of new characters were introduced, but I felt there was no chance to get to know them. I would have enjoyed the story more if th ...more

I just saw there was a giveaway for this book! But it's fine it was only 4 bucks to download. It was a great read. I've always loved witches, but this was a different take. Egyptian mystical witches! And Isis is her grandmother. They go into astronomy, astronomy and alchemy. A lot of A's. But I like it. It's an adult read but not a romance novel more wordy. I'm in love with her love interest Luri he sounds adorable and can read minds. Over blood suckers. Kind of ended with a cliff hanger, I hope ...more

To say the truth I was intrigued by the astronomy-witch plot of the book. It turned out more than I expected.
Astronomy meets astrology in a quiet crescendo, that eventually mingles with Egyptian mythology and their modern protectors. Stars from afar walking modern Earth.
An unexpected and unusual mix. A well-paced book.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.

I was drawn in by the cover. Very nice. So, this book is about a serial killer who kills by stabbing in the third eye. This has got to be one of the most unique ideas I have come across in a long time. Also, there is a girl handing out horoscopes that are freakishly accurate. I don't want to give too much away but this is a good one

I'm not really sure what to say about this one, it was interesting but rather bizarre. A little of the astrological talk was above my head but it was easier to follow when they explained it with the story of Ra and the creation of the eye. I really want to read the next one and see where it's headed.

It was kinda slow and boring during the beginning. But after I got in a couple chapters it was good. If a second book comes out, I will totally read it because I want to know what happens next.
