Getting started on the next book
The whole story focuses on the male MC "charming" girls in his school and having sex with them.Sometimes he also involves other male friends in his cult. He changes later, but not enough to change my feeling about him. The main thing that put me off the story was this concept of total mind control which made girls give in to all their sexual urges. According to me, this is rape. And worse, the poor girls did not even have the will/ right to fight back.
I'm not saying that this was a *bad* book. It was well written and it would have been a good read if I wasn't so strongly against the basic concept of the book. I will give other books from this author a try, just not this series. If you don't mind a premise of rape, then you might enjoy this.
As a YA, this is not appropriate for younger teens.
SPOILER ALERT (please don't read if you don't want to know the end)!!
I did not like what happened to the MC in the end. I know that she will get out of this in the next book. But it was a turn off to me and made me drop the series.
Natti moves from England to South California, USA. And she's not a very happy girl since she never wanted to make the move. But her father had no choice after Natti's grandmother passed away.
They end up in a town that ironically likes the Egyptian culture. There's even a pyramid. Egyptian stuff is what the father wanted to get away from, but somehow they can't avoid it. But it's too late, they have arrived and they can't do anything about it.
Natti has Egyptian roots even though she was from England. She doesn't know much about her background since her mother died when she was four years old. Her grandmother didn't tell her much. But she doesn't think much about it until strange things happens.
She meets a boy who is somehow able to charm girls, all girls, at her new school. But when he tries to charm her, she has an searing headache and he appears confused. It's obvious that he thought he could charm her, but couldn't. So she thinks that there's something wrong about him. But what is he?
As the book unfolds, you will see her Egyptian ancestry come through and explain everything. And it isn't good, especially when the boy's father is bent on possessing her and wanting to make her his wife.
You'll find out why as you read along. But I really loved this series. I couldn't get enough of it. The relationship between Natti and the boy, Seth, is incredibly hot and full of conflicts. I love that Natti tells him off. She's no weak female that's for sure.
