Summary from Goodreads:

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.

I love anything to do with mythology, so when I heard this was about Egyptian mythology, I jumped at the chance to read it. More and more books are about Greek mythology, so this was a bit different and a very amazing book.

I was immediately pulled into Isadora's world, and the chaos that soon follows. She can't wait to leave home and get away from her mother and father, Isis and Osiris, and live on her own. She soon finds that moving in with her brother, Sirus, is her way out and makes it seem as if it's her mother's idea for her to go. She is soon making friends and a life away from home when chaos comes in the form of her half-brother which takes her back home.

I really enjoyed Kiersten White's Paranormalcy series, so I knew I would enjoy this. The characters are great, and there is even some eye candy in here with amazing blue eyes and dark hair. I would recommend this book to ages 13 and up.

Hi! I'm the New York Times best-selling author of Paranormalcy and Supernaturally. I also give the most awkward hugs in the world. You should probably opt for one of my books over one of my hugs, but then again, maybe you like awkward hugs.

As for me, I like writing flirting scenes, and fighting scenes, and sometimes I write scenes that fall somewhere in between the two, but only if I can't avoid it.
