Wow what an ending. My only hope is every once in a while we will see a story on how Natti and Seth are doing. Their adventures and lives. A novella or something because these are two characters who defied the odds and went against everyone and fought their way to where they are and fought for their love for one another.
Seth especially fought his way to Natti and what she offered him. She offered him hope, warmth, understanding and love. She was what kept him going and wanting to change. He walked away from the Sons of Set to keep Natti safe. He fought his inner beast for her. He protected her, sometimes overprotected, so she could change her fate and end the Sons of Set.
Out of the two Seth is my favorite. He may be overprotective but he was also dealing with alot. He knew his father and what the sons were capable of and was afraid for Natti. Not only that he also knew the fate of Natti and what could happen based on what choices she makes along the way. He struggles with himself to fight the beast and keep the Sons of Set from his mind. Although he does make a mistake in a weak moment and it is a big one it wasn’t done maliciously. He is mischievous, sexy, fun, sweet and willling to sacrifice to keep Natti safe and end the Sons of Set from obtaining what they want.
Natti is strong and stubborn. She also at times you can see her age. She is frustrated and lost. All of this is new and what got to me was no matter what she saw or learned she was still trying to not believe in it. Girl it was glaring at you so you can’t deny any longer. That was what kept her from being my favorite. She sometimes acted like it was all not happening and not wanting to believe. She tried to deny her new fate because it took her away from her life. Once she accepted it, she fought against the evil more. She had Seth by her side offering support and strength and that helped. She also learned to get Seth to tell her everything. Even when Seth was trying not to because he wanted her to be ready before he did or he was protecting her you saw her want his knowledge. Which is good but if your not ready even when you claim you are it’s bad. Sometimes she wasn’t ready because of her denial of what was happening and her desire for normalcy.
There adventure was taut with danger, intrigue and love. You saw them fight against those who wanted them to fail, Set himself, and fight for each other. You can see why Seth was chosen by Isis to protect Natti. He would give up everything including his life for her. Natti would do the same. They fought for one another but also to keep Set from becoming all powerful.
This tale is one you learn mythology from but also see characters grow and love grow as well. You see tough decisions made and love never die only be delayed. Natti and Seth bring us on an adventure of danger and a journey of love that draws you in from the beginning and has you rooting for them to the end. It is well written and in both Natti’s and Set’s view with occasionally a look at Seth’s thoughts. It is Set that creeped me out. Man was that dude dark and just ech. Our story never wanes in excitement and keeping you wanting more. the writing and characters lure you in and never let you go in this wonderful ending that has so many reveals and twists and turns with lots of danger and plenty of love and seeing love sacrifice and win. Just hope we see more of them and this series.
Highly recommended these series to everyone.
Last book of the series and I was so excited to see what happens in the book. How the prophecy was going to work and what Seth and Natti will do. It was the puzzle that I could not put together with Natti’s constant whim as nonbeliever and Seth’s overprotective nature and firm decision of not solving the puzzle. Rise of Set, Natti prisoner of Set and Seth on his constant effort of protecting Natti, but of course cannot change the destiny. With all that finding Name of Ra looked even more impossible.
Seth was overprotective, arrogant, and egoistic, even hid things from Natti that he should not. Because of his overprotective nature lead him to do stupid things and gave Set a clue to how to find them. Till this point I was little disappointed by his actions. I don’t understood how Natti was cooperating his dominant nature which was opposite herself. But after that point I so liked him.
Natti– I’m not happy with heroine. She is main reason I have cut the stars. How much proof a person needs to start believing the things going on around her and take it seriously! All she was whiny emotional teenage girl, that worked in wrong way except the end or during her visits in Duat. I just can’t believe she was letting a God of chaos control over few things and even believing his lies. Uh, I don’t like her. All I wanted for her was to fight even though he was a God and she couldn’t possibly win against him but I wanted her to at least use her little bit of power or whatever it takes to fight.
The only person I liked most in the book except Seth, was Anubis. I won’t say more about him but he is the only underworld God whom I like in mythologies.
Set– most terrifying antagonist I have read in any book. This dude will achieve higher rank among villains. He made my blood boiling whenever I was reading chapters including this character.
What I liked-
Book was narrated from the perspective of Seth, Natti, and Set alternatively. Again, like second book, the narration from antagonist’s POV gave the idea about his mindset and also gave hints on what will happen next. I liked writing in whole series, it’s captivating that I somehow forgot mention before.
Connection between Seth and Natti and their love for each other was indefinable, specifically Seth’s devotion for Natti was so adorable. When Seth said he was loyal to no God but only Natti, that dude just won my heart right there and then.
Mythology, of course was best in the book. Loved the tales told by Anubis, about Isis, his birth, his real father, and issues between Ma’at and Isis. That whole part I honestly didn’t know. It was new to me and so damn interesting. Other fact about Set before he actually turned toward darkness, the information Set gave to Natti, and Ma’at’s promise was shocking. The whole tale by leader of scorpion was awesome. I could see author’s full on research for this book. Such interesting tales makes me read this genre more and more. In short, there was good amount of mythology.
Their journey toward the Name of Ra, around last 40% of the book and the worldbuilding in that part, the way story was going, and twists in this portion was mind blowing. If the whole book would be like that I would have given full stars for sure. One thing I learned that God surely works in mysterious ways and I can’t believe how much family dramas Gods have themselves. Humans are exactly like them only we lack is immortality and gifts. 😉
There was so much mystery in the book- The nightmare, Flail and Crook, prophecy, Gods, Name of Ra. Character’s emotional status made it so unpredictable. But the end of the book, I guess that I predicted very early, may be in second book or before, I knew this was going to happen in the end but little differently. Even though I enjoyed reading it. And that little twist about Ra and myth at the end, just loved it.
why not 5 stars- As I said heroine were disappointing. I expected heroine stronger at least in this final book but she was not. And Epilogue- I wanted to read more in that like what happened to Mandy and in temple of Setemple.
Overall, fast paced, interesting mythology. Could be more good if heroine was strong and smart. Even though, I enjoyed reading most of part of the book. I definitely like to read more from this author.
