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.
We are back again with Seth and Natti who are on the run and are hiding out from Seth’s father. His father wants Natti for his own. The only reason he wants her is because she is the secret keeper and is the only one who can get him want he truly wants which is the Name of Ra. He wants to raise their God Set from the dead. He wants to have more power than anyone and he also wants control of the whole world but he just might be in for a rude awakening.
Seth has been raised to believe in the God of Set and that he is to obey him no matter what. He has also been taught that he is not to have anything to do with the Daughters of Isis. He is ok with this until one of the daughters moves to his town and starts going to the same school that he does. Seth doesn’t know that she is a Daughter of Isis in the beginning but he does find out before she does so herself. Seth is a very strong and talented young man. He is a very strong charmer. He can make anyone or almost anyone do his will if he so desires. Well with the exception of Natti that is.
Natti doesn’t know anything about being a Daughter of Isis or the Sons of Set. Her family has kept all of that hidden from her, her whole life. When Natti first laid eyes on Seth she was very attractive to him. She did not know that he had any special abilities and that he could literally have any girl he wanted and did well that is except her of course. But it didn’t take her long to figure out what was going on. She found out about his powers and that was why every girl in school hung out with him. Even though she liked Seth she didn’t want anything to do with him because she wasn’t sure if she actually felt want she did or if Seth was using his powers on her like he did with all of the other girls.
When Seth found out what his father had in plan for Natti he took her and left town with her. Seth and Natti both figured out that she was immune to his powers and that he couldn’t make her like him or that she could fight off his powers. Seth gave up everything thing in his life for instance like becoming the leader of the Sons of Set after his father’s reign to keep Natti safe. Seth and Natti fell so hard and deeply in love with each so much so that they would each give their own lives for the other. They would both fight tooth and nail for the other. If they had to die and give up their life to keep the other alive then they would. Seth would do anything for Natti and Natti would do anything for Seth and the world at large. Natti had one great big heart and didn’t have a selfish bone in her body. Natti would never let Seth’s father have his way with her and she would never let him take Seth from her no matter what it cost her.
I have enjoyed reading the Descendants of Isis and I am sad to be leaving Seth and Natti behind. I am going to miss them so much. You know you have read a good book when you start missing the characters long before you get through reading the last book. I am going to miss the love that they both had for each other and the way that they interacted with each other as well. I loved their playfulness. They are two of the best characters that I have read. I hope that we get to see more of Natti and Seth in the future. But if not I hope that Kelsey has more books and stories that is just waiting to be told. I can’t wait to read more of her work and I recommend the Descendants of Isis to anyone who just loves a good book. As the saying goes it is “off the chain.” I loved the world of the Descendants of Isis and want more of it.
