Daughter of The Sun by Zoe Kalo Review

 

 28934536Title: Daughter of The Sun
Author: Zoe Kalo
Blurb (GR): 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.

The characters were well thought o

Trinity was a really great character. She was the type of girl who will do anything to bring justice, to those who deserve it. She is also not a girl to mess with. I loved how the author crafted her. Zoe Kalo made Trinity strong, but breakable. Trinity was fragile, although it takes time.

Brianna is showed up in the beginning and end of the novel, but is mentioned in the middle. Still, she is very important to Trinity. She was Trinity’s best friend Yet, I felt like Brianna was a very confusing. She was sent by Bast to protect Trinity. I felt like Brianna should’ve showed up more.

Ara is a little annoying. The mother who never cared for her is a demon, yet she’s sad because Trinity is more populaur than her. Quit being a baby, that’s all I have to say.  I felt like she was very irrelevant to the story. She was only used to help break into her mother’s library.

The plot was really interesting. Trinity lives in a convent. She doesn’t know who her parents were, or if she has any other family relations.  Her only worries is getting food and getting revenge Beth Thompson. Life was regular, until Dr.Nassri came over with shocking news.  Trinity has a grandma, a very rich grandma who lives in the Island of Cats. Which is filled with cats. Cats are respected there. Suddenly, Trinity’s grandma dies (emphasis on suddenly), and Trinity is left with a lot of cat’s, an island to take care of, and a lot of money.

Just when life couldn’t get weirder, Trinity can jump from really high heights, her pupils can change shape, and she can heal people very fast. She realizes that she is a witch. Part of The Cult of the Cat. Dr.Nassri is part of it too. Trinity realizes (after a fight, and break in) that Dr.Nassri is actually a demon. She fights Dr.Nassri. And she realizes that she is Bast (Egyptian cat god) incarnate. LIKE WOAH!!

 

The story totally blew my mind! It was so interesting. I loved the Egyptian twist.

For a debut, this really surprised me. The flow and structure were smooth. The voice invoked you in. And you never want to get out.
