5 Things to Expect in Name of Ra by Kelsey Ketch
Thanks, Liberty, for inviting me to take part in this guest post! 🙂
Nearly two years after Daughter of Isis first released, the conclusion of the Descendants of Isis series is quickly approaching. Up until now, high school students Seth O’Keefe and Natara Stone have discovered an ancient riddle, escaped a murderous cult, made a run for the California High Desert, and found a prophecy in an underground tomb hidden in Death Valley. Now it comes down to finding Ra’s secret name before the Sons of Set. But it’s not going to be easy.
Here are some things you can expect while reading the final novel.
1. Set has risen.
In book three, Sean O’Keefe, Seth’s father, is tired of this game of cat and mouse. He summons the god of chaos himself for help, which Set is not exactly pleased about. The god’s time is precious on earth, since the reincarnation spell that brought him back is only temporary. He can’t fully rise until he has Ra’s secret name in his possession. But that doesn’t stop him from enjoying his freedom. And if you thought Seth’s and Sean’s little hobbies were despicable, the god they worship is far worse.
2. Natara becomes better equipped.
Though doing her best to fight back, she was never a born fighter like Seth. He was trained by the Sons of Set to become a deadly weapon while Natara grew up in a normal, nurturing environment. She realizes that has to change. She can’t be the damsel-in-distress any longer. During the day, Seth trains her in the art of self-defense, and at night, Anubis teaches her to strengthen her gifts her goddess bless her with. Unfortunately, the intense training also takes its toll.
3. Learning about Mandy Brown’s past and a foreshadowing of her future.
Mandy was once Seth’s ‘number one’ girl in Setemple High. That was before Natara moved into Setemple, and his father took Mandy to be a slave of Set’s underground temple. But her part in the Descendants of Isis is hardly over. In fact, she continually haunts Seth and Natara. Her fate laying heavily on their minds.
4. Seth plays a larger role in Isis’s prophecy than first realized.
In the second book, Son of Set, Isis reveals a prophecy to Seth about Natara’s potential future. What the goddess did not specify was that his actions will play a major role in these events. Nor did she reveal that there is a part of the prophecy she hadn’t made clear. A portion that involves Seth himself.
5. The gods are more involved in the conclusion of the Descendants of Isis Series.
Whether directly or indirectly, there are more gods and goddess than just Isis and Set influencing the events that are about to unfold. Anubis, Set, and even Bastet make direct appearances in Name of Ra. However, you will discover one god/dess has betrayed Isis. The deal they struck sealing Natara’s mother’s destiny, and potentially Natara’s as well.
