Hello my favorite little munchkins. How are you all doing? I am doing pretty well. I am back to school which I am sad about. I mean learning is the best thing in the world except my school doesn’t necessarily have the best students in it and in some of the classes they make us memorize instead of teaching us. Anyways my rant is over.

by Kelsey Ketch
Age category: Young Adult
Release Date: 11 November, 2015
“Set has risen.”
After being on the run from a psychotic cult for a week, Natara “Natti” Stone has finally come to realize she and Seth are the only two people standing between the Sons of Set and the secret name of Ra. Holding a part of the key that unlocks Ra’s power, they relocate to a more isolated location in the California mountains. While laying low, Natti becomes even more determined to understand her mother’s bloodline and her blessing from the goddess, Isis. But when she starts seeing the truth behind her destiny, she begins to doubt her role in the events that are about to unfold.
Then the unthinkable happens . . .
All Seth O’Keefe wanted was to get Natti as far away from his father and the Sons of Set as possible. Unfortunately, after hearing of Natti’s destiny from Isis’s own lips, he realizes they have bigger issues to worry about. Especially when one stupid slip up leads the god of chaos himself straight to their doorstep. Now Natti is the god’s prisoner, and Set holds the key to unlocking the location of the secret name of Ra. Can Seth save Natti from her own destiny and thwart the demented god’s rise to power?

- The writing in this book was extremely well and as I had read the other two books previously I was able to have a better grasp into the story and enjoy it more.
- In the story we read from three different peoples point of views.
- Some of the P.O.Vs were enjoyable but some of the of the others kind of felt like a drag.
- The plot of the story was extremely enjoyable and it was a great continuation of the book trilogy.
- The book was set in a nice fast pace, or at least for me.
- Which was something that I personally enjoyed as it didn’t feel like there was anything dragging the book behind.
- There was twists and turns at every single page of the book which made the book more interesting.
- The characters were for a majority delighting.
- The main characters were all mature and not childlike when put into a difficult situation which allowed for the characters to be more enjoyable when reading.
- However there was a couple side characters that were not that pleasant.
- The ending was a delightful way to close out a trilogy.
- Also can I say that if you like the plot that you should just go ahead and read the book.
- In conclusion, this was a great book to end a good series.
I give this book 4/5 stars.
“Natti, you need to relax,” Seth finally said.
She froze in her place and looked at him. “Relax! Are you mental? My best friend was
Seth stood up from the long, ratty sofa, peeled apart her hands, and took them into his.
“You don’t know that for sure.” He brushed his thumbs over her skin in soft, smooth strokes.
“Just let the doctors worry about it.”
The calm, soft tingle of his touch seeped through her skin, coursing lightly over her
nerves and releasing their tension. Her mind and body began to calm down, making her
realize how badly every muscle had been physically shaking. Slowly, layer upon layer of fear
and stress simply vanished until she felt nothing at all. She looked up at Seth’s eyes, drawn to
their warmth and comfort.
“Okay . . .” Natti spoke, almost breathless. “How do you do that?”
“Do what?” Seth’s voice was seductive as he leaned his forehead against hers. His
scent of spice cologne, myrrh, and sandalwood consumed her senses, and his eyes captured
“This,” she pressed. “The sensations of your touch. I’ve been feeling it all night and
even before. Ever since we met. And don’t try to lie. I know you’re doing it, but how?”
Seth smirked at her question, his eyes turning their focus to her hands. “It’s nothing.”
Natti couldn’t help smile as more of the tingling sensation slipped over her skin. “Oh,
it’s something. What is it?”
His beautiful full lips tempted her with a smile. “You wouldn’t believe me if I told
Silence fell between them while he seemed to think it over, meanwhile massaging her
hands with his thumbs and fingers. The pressure, the release, each movement slowly pulling
her thoughts and focus onto his hands. “Touch is a magical thing, Natti,” he explained. “It can
comfort.” He raised one hand and stroked her cheek, soft and gentle. “It can entice.” His
thumb moved along her jaw and applied pressure as it traveled down her neck, causing her to
shiver with delight. “And it can hurt. Whatever the intensions, it brings two people together. It
makes a certain . . . connection.”
Though there was no heaviness of a lie, she chuckled at his response. “You’re right. I
don’t believe you. Touch is just a sense. A tool the human body uses.”
“Yes, and it’s a powerful tool when used the right way.” His honey voice teasing her,
tempting her. “Now come sit with me and relax. Wanda will be all right.”
