Son of Set (Descendants of Isis #2)
by Kelsey Ketch
Release Date: 05/02/14
“. . . the Sons would never just let him go—alive.”
Seth O’Keefe has broken the laws of his god. He never thought he would sacrifice his own future to protect a Daughter of Isis. But when the Sons of Set discovered Natti is the Secret Keeper, he had no choice. Now, Seth and Natti are on the run from his father, who wants nothing more than to see Seth dead. With no allies, Seth turns to the Daughters of Isis for help, hoping they would protect Natti. But when they meet the Daughters, he discovers a secret that puts both their lives in more danger. Low on options, Seth sees only one possibility for survival. He must help Natti solve an ancient puzzle and find the secret name of Ra.
Natara “Natti” Stone is having a hard time swallowing the truth. She can’t believe what she has learned in the past twenty-four hours: Seth is a Son of Set blessed with charm; she is a Daughter of Isis blessed with a sliver of Ma ‘at; the locket her grandmother gave her holds an ancient Egyptian secret linking to Osiris and Isis. That along with being tortured and brutalized by the Sons of Set, she can hardly hold herself together. Thank God for Seth’s touch! That warm, tingling sensation that drowns it all out. Yet her heart struggles to stay focused. She must quickly embrace her destiny before the secret name of Ra falls into the wrong hands.

On with my update:
WHAT I’M READING
I finished Between Us by Jen McLaughlin, then I read the 3rd one of this novella trilogy: Beyond Me by Jennifer Probst. I also read Girl with Guitar by Caise Quinn, and now I’m reading the sequel Girl On Tour.
WHAT I’M WRITING
Last week, I wrote 17558 words on Breaking Fences. This Monday, I wrote 3104 words and on Tuesday (yesterday) I wrote 1555 words – I had to stop and rework my outline. It was running away from me and usually I let it wander a little, but the way it was going, things were a mess … I’m gonna be working on my outline this afternoon, but I hope to get a bit of writing done this evening.
Even with that set back, I hope to hit above the 15k words mark this week again, especially since I have an extra day of writing this week – going to meet my girls for our monthly write-in this coming Sunday! :)
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
Nothing in specific. Life? Love? Family? Writing? The many stories swirling in my head and making me crazy? All of it.
WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO
Don’t forget that the cover reveal of Breaking Fences is set for March 2oth. If you want to help me out with it, you can sign up here!
I mentioned the write-in the next Sunday, right? I’m very excited about that! I love meeting with my girls :)
Oh, and I scheduled an appointment to get my next tattoo! But the tattoo shop I want to go to is very popular here (the owner is the head judge of a reality show about tattoos, so …), I was only able to scheduled my appointment for the end of May! Alas, I’m been saying I’m gonna get this tattoo for over 2 years. Two more months of wait won’t be that bad ;)
Now tell me, WHAT’S UP WITH YOU?
As the Governor’s daughter, Charlotte McClain is an expert in playing pretend. High society, the men her mother shoves in her direction and a Pre-Law major are all a part of her perfect pretense. But when she pretends to be a nobody during Spring Break, she meets someone who rocks her world.
Mason Rowell knows heartbreak and Spring Break don’t mesh well, so he allows the mysterious Charlotte to seduce him. What should have been a fling, results in something deeper. After Spring Break has long since passed, he moves to Washington to pursue his graduate degree, but what he never expected to find living among the rich and pompous, was the girl who gave him the strength to change and the desire to start anew.
When the guy Charlotte can’t forget goes from a sensual memory to temptation in the flesh, her facade is put to the test. If she surrenders to his charms, she risks ruining her mother’s perfect career and master plan. Playing pretend is what Charlotte does best, but how long can she pretend she doesn’t love the man who made her proud of her true self?
