Daughter of the Sun, Book 1 – blurb
Sixteen-year-old Trinity was born during a solar eclipse and left at the doorsteps of a convent along with a torn piece of papyrus covered with ancient symbols. Raised by nuns in the English countryside, she leads a quiet life until she’s whisked away to the Island of Cats and a grandmother she never knew.
But before they can get to know each other, her grandmother dies. All that Trinity has left is a mysterious eye-shaped ring. And a thousand grieving cats. As Trinity tries to solve the enigma of the torn papyrus, she discovers a world of bloody sacrifices and evil curses, and a prophecy that points to her and her new feline abilities.
Unwilling to believe that any of the Egyptian gods could still be alive, Trinity turns to eighteen-year-old Seth and is instantly pulled into a vortex of sensations that forces her to confront her true self—and a horrifying destiny.

Wow…..just wow! I actually had a book hangover after this one. So many twists and turns, my head was spinning (but in a good way). Other than like 2 mysteries that I guessed correctly, almost every piece of the puzzle was a surprise. I absolutely love when that happens!! And the great news is that this isn’t a major cliffhanger but there are still so many questions that were left unanswered that a curious cat like me just has to know! The build-up to the end was masterful, to some it would seem slow until the end but with so many “hints” (that gave nothing away…argh) it was so easy to stay engaged in the story. There were some slow parts and teenage drama but for the most part it I was completely gripped by the story. I didn’t want to put it down (stupid work lol).I loved all the Egyptian Mythology and how it tied into the story. There aren’t that many UF stories out there that have Egyptian Mythology, most are Greek or Celtic. (No complaints, I love those too). The characters were so easy to relate to but it was hard to figure out whom to trust, well, other than Dr. Nassri, she always seemed untrustworthy. But her daughter, Ara, I felt so bad for her and totally understood why she had an attitude at times. Seth, just plain hot (even though he’s a little young for me lol), total sweetheart. I adored Trinity, she’s so utterly clueless since she grew up in a convent but she doesn’t let that stop her from seeking answers. Awesome story and I can’t wait to read the next book to find out what happens next!

Cute story, it was nice to get to know Trinity’s parents a little. There was also some interesting information about Dr. Nassri and the possible identity of Ara’s father which is very interesting. I really can’t wait for the next book knowing what I think I know lol.
