In Daughter of Isis, the town of Setemple holds an annual town festival in honor of their high school mascot on first weekend of October. And you’re invited to join Natti, Kevin, Jen, and Wanda as they wander the festival grounds. Eat at the ‘Festival Hall’ where you can experience Egyptian cuisine or enjoy traditional American treats. Shop the ‘Exhibits of Tomb Treasures’ and ‘Cleopatra’s Delights.’ Or play games at the ‘Sphinx’s Challenge.’ But be warned. There’s a dark side to this festival. One hidden from the public’s eyes.
The woman finally came to Natti. Her eyes narrow slits. “You are not a believer.”
“No, I am not,” Natti admitted.
“You’ve lost faith. You’ve lost faith in this world. Death has taken it from you. The death of a loved one, a parent?” Natti lowered her head. “Your mother! Oh, yes. It was your mother, wasn’t it?
“And now you see the world only with your eyes.” The woman shook her head slowly. “My dear, there are truths in this world your vision cannot detect. There are truths one cannot explain. I can help you take the first step. You just have to open your mind.”
The woman held out her hand. Natti eyed the woman, hesitantly placed her money on the table, and held out her palm. The woman took it. Her thin lips became a tight frown, her focus purely on studying the lines of Natti’s hand.
“Oh, dear. I’m afraid you are in grave danger even as we speak. The spider has built his web, weaving his sparking threads of false intensions. He looks to entice you with his charm and deception. To take you into his grasp, bleed you dry, and in the end, leave you withered and hollow. So do not allow yourself to be drawn into his trap, for it will surely be your doom.”

“Her mouth parted slightly, waiting for Seth to breathe life into her own body, just like in the story. She wanted him to awaken her senses.”
Their worlds collide in California’s high desert.
The last thing Natara “Natti” Stone wants to do is to start anew at Setemple High School. She wished she had never left London. Yet the brutal murder of her maternal grandmother has made her life very complicated. The only clue related to her murder is an ancient, encrypted necklace Natti discovered after her grandmother’s death. And if trying to adjust to American life is not enough, Natti is being stalked by a mysterious, charming high school senior, Seth O’Keefe, who is annoyingly persistent in his attempts at seduction.
Seth O’Keefe is secretly a member of the Sons of Set, an order that worships the Egyptian god of chaos. Seth’s blessing from Set, his “charm,” never failed, except with one person: Natti Stone. Her ability to elude him infatuates and infuriates him, and he becomes obsessed with the chase. But the closer he gets to her, the more his emotions take a dangerous turn, and he risks breaking one of the most valued covenants of his order. The punishment for which is a fate worse than death.
The adventure this unlikely couple becomes engulfed in could cost them their lives and their souls.
