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.
When i first read the description of this book i wasn't sure if it will be a story i will like,especially because i don't usually read books about Egypt and all the things that are related to it,but i have to admit that this book surprised me.It was a good story and it had amazing characters.And i just loved the way things turned up.I admit that i really want to read the next book.
Trinity never knew who her parents were or if she had any relatives,being left on the steps of an covenant,until something happened and she finds out she had a grandmother who was looking for her.But Trinity knew something strange was happening to her,yet she never imagined that the day when she moved on the Island Of Cats everything will change for her.
I admit that i don't know a lot about Egyptian Mythology stories and things that happened in the past,but i enjoyed reading this book.It was full of surprises and i liked the way things turned up,especially how the characters evolved step by step.And..i do have to admit that it was strange the fact that there were a lot of cats in this book..But i know why and it was perfect.
Yes,i was surprised by what was happening and i admit that once i started reading i couldn't stop!It was fun how everything transformed,twisting and turning until everything changed and i loved how the story ended up,even if it left me a little shocked and too damn curious to know more.
Trinity,the main female character of this story was fun to read about.I really liked her and the way she was handling everything.Strong,determined and stubborn she was exactly the kind of heroine this kind of stories need.From the beginning i knew her destiny was huge and that everything about her was special,but heck if i expected this.
I hated Dr. Nassri,even if didn't know her evil plans.She was a strange character and i didn't trust her from the beginning.And it seems that i wasn't wrong.
Ara-being Dr. Nassri's daughter didn't mean anything to me,but i have to admit that i liked her more than her mother.She was fun to read about,but there were moments when i wanted to shake some sense into her.
And here comes the one who i really liked :Seth.Sweet,charming and a real gentleman.I hope that in the next book i will get the chance to read more about him.He is the type of character you fall in love at first sight-at first read.
This story was full of surprises and i liked every chapter.What i liked the most?All those cats!Well,i imagined everything,so the idea of living on an island full of cats sounds pretty damn amazing.
Amazing story and i can't wait to read the next book!
