Pages: 288
Release Date: September 10, 2013

Isadora's family is seriously screwed up—which comes with the territory when you're the human daughter of the ancient Egyptian gods Isis and Osiris. Isadora is tired of living with crazy relatives who think she's only worthy of a passing glance—so when she gets the chance to move to California with her brother, she jumps on it. But her new life comes with plenty of its own dramatic—and dangerous—complications . . . and Isadora quickly learns there's no such thing as a clean break from family.

Rating: 5

Review: First can we just take a moment and enjoy the cover, it is beautiful!

Now on to the details of the book. It's a coming of age story for Isadora who comes to San Diego to live with her brother. She is the daughter of Isis, the Egyptian goddess of motherhood, and growing up in Egypt she never traveled, had not been on a plane, did not know how to ride a bike or drive a car, and Isadora is very opposed to the idea of love. Throughout the book she experiences new places and emotions she didn't even realize she had.

She is required to work on an exhibit at a museum for her mothers art and while there she becomes friends with Tyler, Scott, and Ry. With them she learns to live and be free while learning to appreciate her parents. She learns to take risks and live for what she has now instead of concerning herself with the pain that may come later.

I was excited to read this book because I have read the Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan and I loved the Egyptian mythology. Obviously this book is very different but it is wonderful to see how Tyler, Scott, Ry, and Isadora all evolve throughout the book.

When it ended I just wanted more I grew to love all the characters and I didn't want this to be my last time with them, but alas it is a standalone novel (well it is right now). It is a good ending but you just don't want to leave them behind you want to hold onto them.

I would definitely recommend this book!



  1. It's so amazing when you love a book so much, you love the characters so much that you don't want to leave them and finishing that book will mean the end of the world and you want another book but if there is going to be another book it will probably ruin it for you.

    I feel like White's concept of books have grown more interesting these past few years. I read her Paranormalcy series and it was okay but this concept and story line sounds much more interesting. ^^

    1. I also read Mind Games by her, right before I read this one and I loved it. The characters were complex which made them feel more real. There are books where the characters are dull and you think wow no one is like this they have no life to them. That's sad to here that the paranormal series isn't as good.
