BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Daughter of the Sun (Cult of the Cat #1) by Zoe Kalo

Book details:

Daughter of the Sun by Zoe Kalo
(Cult of the Cat, #1)
Publication date: May 1st 2016
Genres: Fantasy, Mythology, Young Adult


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.

4 out of 5 (very good)

If you are looking for a Young Adult Fantasy book that is different from the norm, then look no further. Daughter of the Sun is full of Egyptian mythology, with layer upon layer of mystery just waiting to be uncovered. 

In a story that gently builds up to the climax, Trinity is the main female. She was left at a Catholic convent many years previously and has grown up there. Then one day, a visitor arrives to say that she has a family after all and takes her to them. Then the story really kicks off, with new powers showing up, intuition being something that you NEED to listen to, and people definitely not being as they appear.

This is very well-written and thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish. With no editing or grammatical errors that I could see, this is a book definitely recommended by me. Looking forward to continuing with Trinity's story!

A certified bookworm, Zoe Kalo has always been obsessed with books and reading. Reading led to writing—compulsively. No surprise that at 16, she wrote her first novel, which her classmates read and passed around secretly. The pleasure of writing and sharing her fantasy worlds has stayed with her, so now she wants to pass her stories to you with no secrecy—but with lots of mystery…

A daughter of adventurous expats, she’s had the good fortune of living on 3 continents, learning 4 languages, and experiencing a multicultural life. Currently, she’s working on a Master’s degree in Comparative Literature, which she balances between writing, taking care of her clowder of cats, and searching for the perfect bottle of pinot noir.
