Start your review of Son of Set (Descendants of Isis #2)
Oh the levels Kelsey Ketch takes us to on this adventure! This is the sequel to Descendant of Isis. It is packed with more drama, action, romance and intrigue than before.

Seth and Natti are on the run from Seth's father (Sean) and the other Sons of Set. Unable to trust anyone, they are completely on their own. Natti wants to solve the mystery of Ra's secret name while Seth wants nothing more than for her to be safe. These goals do not seem to hand in hand. Natti has to come to terms to what h
Now it has been a while since I read Descendants of Isis - so, it was really fun to dive into the second installment of this series over the weekend. There was so much happening in this book that I didn't even realize that it was over by the time I flipped to the last page. It sucked me in - especially when I wasn't out on winery fun, watching movies, or hanging out with the family.

Son of Set was jam-packed with action, drama, and romantic shit. Seth and Natti are on the run from Seth's crazy a

4.5 Stars
Brilliant and high dose mythology, hot pursuit, thrilling and tense story, unraveling secrets. Everything I wanted in was there in the book. Whatever complain I had for the first book just vanished in the air. This book was better than I expected. There were still no hieroglyphic drawing in this book, may be because I’m reading review copy or whatever reason, still this book

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?

*I should mention that I received the e-arc from the author in return for a fair review.*

I'm at a loss of words.

It's been a long time that I have thoroughly enjoyed a novel to this extent. I remember Daughter of Isis being amazing, but I think Son of Set brought the bar so much higher.

The fluidity that was displayed in this novel was perfect. I have a really visual imagination and there's at some points that I forgot that I was reading.

The sexual/romantic tension between Natti and Seth was super

Son of Set was a breathtaking, addicting sequel! I adored Kelsey Ketch’s first novel, Daughter of Isis, and I am extremely excited to report that I loved the second book just as much!

The characters are so likable and unique! In the beginning, Natti is shocked and scared after the terrible events in Daughter of Isis. However, she still keeps going and plans to side with the Daughters of Isis against the Sons. I admired her fierceness and determination.

I liked Seth a lot more in this novel. After

OMGee!! That ending! okay so it was and it wasn’t kind of cliffy. Netti doesn’t know who she can trust but she does know she has a strong battle ahead of her. Seth’s father is determined to bring his enemies down. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens with Netti and Seth. Netti is coming into her powers and I hope these two will find their way towards happiness. I hope to hear more about the Daughters of Isis. This was a fast paced intrig

Tiffany's Review:

Another great one! I loved the first book, Daughter of Isis and I could not wait to read Son of Set. It did not disappoint!!! This series is intense! Oh and not to mention the guy in the cover is HOTTTT!!!!

I love reading about secret lives that these characters are living. Sons and daughters of ancient Egyptian gods! In this second book Natti and Seth are trying to beat the evil sons to find the secret that keeps the world in balance. Seth and Natti grow closer...which I love!!

This book as good as the first in the series Daughter of Isis.

Natti and Seth have escaped Sean's clutches but are now on the run for their lives. The bond between them grows as they try and stay ones step ahead os Sean and his minions. More secrets are revealed on both sides of the battle for Ra's secret name.

I really enjoyed watch Seth growth in this book that he is not all darkness as his father taught him and how Natti helps show him the light with in himself.

Protagonists: Seth and Natti have escaped the Sons of Set and are now trying to escape and find some semblance of safety from those who threaten their lives. There was a bit of a regress in Natti's character when this book starts but soon she develops back into a strong willed character who won't let some charmer tell her what to do. The magic she possesses also grows in this book, though I have a feeling we haven't seen the full potential of her power yet. Then the

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.

Rating: 4 stars!

I received a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.

Seth O'Keefe is a Son of Set along with his father. Seth has always followed his father's rules always doing as he said. It didn't matter if he liked it or not. His father was the boss and was to be respected. Seth and his father worship the God of Set. Seth never expected to go against his own father much less the God of Set but he did when the Sons of Set kidnapped Natara "Natti" Stone when they found out that she was the

This book was AMAZING.... It was so good I have already tweeted to find out when the final book, The Name of RA, is going to be released. This book has everything in it: friendship, love, loyalty, heart-break, adventure, puzzles, challenges and so much more.

Wow! This escape tale is quite the fast-paced adventure, with a heaping helping of romance on the side. Natti is nearly killed by the Sons of Set, whose leader is none other than Seth’s father Sean. Seth brings Natti back from the brink–with no small help from healing powers he’s always had and never understood.

Natti struggles with the nightmares of her captivity–but also with the overwhelming influence of Seth’s Charm–see, as a Son of Set he has a gift to Charm any and all in his e

Ooooh… what a thrilling sequel in the Descendants of Isis series!! Son of Set continues immediately after the ending of the first book and I was quickly taken on a trip over the country as Nattie and Seth are trying to stay out of Sean’s evil hands!! It was exciting and I was quickly flicking the pages to see how things unfolded.

Throughout the journey Nattie and Seth both learn a lot more about each other: their secrets are revealed, their powers grow stronger and their feelings come to the surf

Thrilling, action-packed, and a wonderful sequel, Son of Set was a fantastic YA read. I really liked this book. It was a lovely read that was even better than the first book.

Natti was great in this book. Even on the run from the Sons of Set, she was determined not to take the easy way out and figure out how to end it once and for all. She was even stronger than she was in book 1 and I still liked her.

Seth was still a bit of a conundrum. In this book, his struggle to shed the dark influence of Se

I totally wanna kill Seth’s dad, in a horrible, very mean, absolutely evil way. :) Wow, the sequel is almost better than the first. There’s more action, and more scary moments, and more mysteries, and a little more Romance! And now, we are learning what Natti is and how she is to become that, and what’s Seth’s role to her. It’s definitely a thrill ride!

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

Spoiler Alert: If you haven't read Daughter of Isis, you might want to skip this review due to book 1 spoilers.

Son of Set is the second book in the Descendants of Isis series. It is not a standalone and I highly recommend reading Daughter of Isis first or you will be lost. The story picks up right where the last ended. Natti is seriously wounded magically, mentally, and physically. Seth is trying to heal her in addition to sta

This story line picks up rights where the first book leaves off, which is when Seth and Natti run from Sean, Seth's father, after he tries to imprison Natti's essence. From there, it just keeps getting better and better as Seth and Natti try to outrun Sean and try to stop his nefarious plan of trying to raise Set.
In this book Natti finally admits to herself that she has definite feelings for Seth, yet she still debates acting

In book two of this series Natti and Seth have escaped Sean and are trying to just stay alive. They are running from Sean's minions and getting closer. There are more secrets revealed and Natti help Sean find the good in hisself. I love how Sean is growing and becoming a better person thanks to the love he is starting to feel for Natti. I cant wait for the next book I really need to see where this is headed. I give it 4 fangs.

The Writing:
I really like the writing, I enjoy reading this and always want to know more. There are many POVs through this book, the times we read from Sean's POV I just wanted to go back to Seth and Natti but I understand that for the story is great to see Sean's POV but I still wanted to be all time with Seth and Natti.

“Seth let out a heavy sigh and ran his fingers through his hair. She had a point. Constant stops would put them at greater risk, especially when it came to Natti being seen. And obviously, it wasn’t likely she’d stay in the car, even if he did ask. Maybe if he tied her up in the backseat?” 1 likes
