Son of War, Daughter of Chaos

Son of War, Daughter of Chaos by [Rallison, Janette]

I have yet to read a book by Janette Rallison that I don't love. For me, this writer only gets better with every book.

This book was SO good! A whole new take on vampires, Egyptian history, good guys versus bad guys. 

The big conflict: What happens when two opposing races spawn kids? Which side do they belong on? Or do they become a new race that can be greater than the originals?

So much drama, action, and heartfelt writing. 

Loved the heroine. And the hero was pretty awesome too. Flaws, confusion, pulled apart and put back together. Every sense was given fodder to bathe in. Fast paced, global trotting, introspection. And most importantly it's relationship driven! A clean read that's based on hearts, not chemistry. Can you tell I loved it? 

I totally want the sequel!!!

Aislynn is accustomed to watching for the enemy. Her parents have instructed her from the time she was young to look for people with the signs: greater than normal strength, eyes that sometimes glow green, and the ability to jump long distances. Over the years, Aislynn has come to view her parents' fears as quirks and unfounded paranoia. They think life is like a horror novel with dangerous things lurking in shadows. But Aislynn just wants a normal high school life--maybe even one with a little romance. 

When Aislynn's mother dies under suspicious conditions, her father doubles his restrictions. But all his precautions can't stop the boy with glowing green eyes from finding Aislynn. She realizes too late she's been drafted into an ancient Egyptian war, one where Horus and Set still struggle for control and people aren't who or what they seem to be. Danger will find her, whether she's prepared or not. 

This urban fantasy takes you around the world: from Arizona to Oxford, England, with stops on the snowy peaks of the Arctic and the ancient ruins of Egypt. 

Son of War, Daughter of Chaos is a teen paranormal romance so chock-full of action and suspense, young adults will have to fight their parents to read it!
