I’m still trying to figure out how to write this without giving away any spoilers. The book opens with Aislynn starting at a new school, but this move is different than the rest. This time she finally starts to believe that her father’s paranoia over “the enemy” may actually be true. I liked Aislynn, she was easy to relate to and you could understand how she was so torn. I liked her perspective on things; she was literally right in the middle, which made her able to see the good and the bad from both sides. (I know, this is really vague, but its hard to go into specifics without giving away too much.) I like how she finally takes charge and thought she was brave for what she ends up having to do.
I loved the romance in this, there is a lot going on so it’s not really the main focus, but I loved it. I was worried there for awhile, but I loved how everything wrapped up.
I think this is my favorite of Rallisons paranormal series, it was original and fun. I liked the take on Horusians and Setites (especially the Setites, that mythology seemed so much more believable and I wish I could write more about it.) Overall, a really fun read. BUY a copy as soon as it’s released, you won’t be disappointed. There HAS to be a sequel, I want more of Aislynn and Dane!
*Pouts in corner*
I'd love for this to have a sequel, which she said she'd consider doing if this book sold enough copies, so here's my plug: BUY THIS BOOK! Because I need me some more Dane. It's only three bucks, and I'm sure you could do without your morning latte for one day. Just sayin'.
I loved seeing each "side" to the conflict and how they viewed their world. Of course, there was one side I agreed with more, so it'd be interesting to see where the author would take things. Because there's a lot of history in this book, I felt like there was more "info dump" and explanation than some of her other books. As I don't know a lot about Egyptians, it was necessary for me though. And some of the ... let's say "vampire-esque" ... parts of the book seemed a little overdone (in the genre as a whole). But as someone who doesn't always like Paranormal novels, this one actually felt fresh for me.
Of course, where this author always shines is in making the reader feel like the stakes always escalate. There's never really a good place to put down the book. And as always, the romance angle in her books are always swoon worthy.
Audience: Young Adult

Review: Okay. I admit, I had a really hard time deciding how to rate this. It was so fun. So Janette Rallison. So well written, witty, and a good book. So why only a 3+ instead of like a 4+ or 5 like it probably deserves? I had a serious, serious problem with one of the love interests for Aislynn. Going into my issues would produce major spoilers, so I won't. I just . . . disagreed. We'll leave it at that.
But, beyond that, it's a good book. It has some fun action and some unique plot twists and turns. It was well written and well thought out. I enjoyed it and to be honest, read it really quickly. I love Aislynn, and most of the characters (hahahaha). They were each pretty solid.
Sex - 1 (Some somewhat passionate kissing and hickies. Ha!)
Language - 0
Violence - 2 (It's an action book but nothing gory or graphic.)
Overall Rating - PG-12, just for themes, etc.
This story has enough of the well known supernatural elements in it that it seems familiar, yet the author's take on them is fresh and the new perspectives are compelling. I was afraid that I had stumbled on a sappy romance novel masquerading as a fantasy story, but thankfully that wasn't the case. The romantic elements of the story are well done and in the end are needed and fill their role nicely.
I'm looking forward to more from this author!
