Blurb:

 

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.

Review:

 

 

Please don’t go into this expecting a tale of epic proportions. You will be sorely disappointed. While this is not a bad book, this is not the epic tale I was expecting. Once I accepted this and moved on I found myself enjoying it.

 

I relate this to a cute fluffy contemporary read about family and first love, only there’s Egyptian Gods. The plot is a little predictable and that let me down a little but I liked the idea of where this book was going.

 

This is not going to be the next big heart stopping read but I enjoyed it for what it was. The gods themselves were flawed beings that were very relatable to a typical dysfunctional family. I really appreciated that as I could relate with these characters and they weren’t almighty  pure beings.

 

If your expectations for this book are right going in I see no reason why you cannot find something to enjoy about it. I am giving this book a 3.5/5.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2

Keep Calm and Read On,

Kati
