Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of Paranormalcy, is back with The Chaos of Stars—an enchanting novel set in Egypt and San Diego that captures the magic of first love and the eternally complicated truth about family.

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.

Blending Ally Carter's humor and the romance of Cynthia Hand'sUnearthly, The Chaos of Stars takes readers on an unforgettable journey halfway across the world and back, and proves there's no place like home.

Okay, I am going to tell you all about a secret now. I have a heavy obsession with mythology.

Isadora is not your regular Egyptian. She is the daughter of the famous Egyptian God and Goddess, Osiris and Isis. To think that things would go well as a daughter of Gods, you're wrong. Isadora's family is seriously screwed up. Isadora just didn't understand why would her parents made her mortal when they are not? but she's passed that anger for her parents now (almost) but she's still sick of her family. When the offer to move away to California turns up, she didn't hesitate to grab it. But again (as the blurb says) there is no such thing as a clean break from family.

I fall in love with this book at first sight, well, after I read the blurb. It's about Egyptian mythology for God's sake! I learned quite a lot from these 288 pages. Isadora, our heroine is art on two legs. She's an Egyptian and the daughter of Osiris and Isis, the God of the afterlife and the Goddess of motherhood (and magic and fertility). I adore Isadora even from the start, and I definitely admire her interior designing skills. And then there is Ry. I don't think revealing his full name would be a good decision, it would be a spoiler so lets just stop right there about his background. All you need to know is that
You guys who subscribed or followed this blog intently would probably be bored of me yelling "cute" or "hot" or "sweet" about male characters. I said it a lot but that doesn't mean I didn't mean it okay, because I love Ry. He's the type of character who supports the main character no matter what the conflict is, Ry is always there to help Isadora and it was really sweet. Love.

Other thing that I love about this book is that it was written in first person. I should warn you though, if you don't like first person POVs that is too teenage-girly than you won't like this book. And if you're as obsessed as I do with mythology but doesn't appreciate fictional retellings and a bit twist in history, then you definitely won't appreciate this book, I didn't recommend you to try it out. But I love those things I mentioned above, the teenage-girly narrator and the retellings, so this book is definitely for me. Overall? LOVE in caps.
