Daughter of the Sun by Zoe Kalo Review Blitz

Title: Daughter of the Sun (Cult of the Cat series, Book 1)
Author: Zoe Kalo
Genre: YA Mythological Fantasy
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
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.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book in the Cult of the Cat Series and I am now impatiently waiting for book two. 16-year old Trinity has lived her entire life within the confines of an orphanage run by nuns. As an infant, she was left on their doorstep with an envelope and a scrap of what could be papyrus.
Just before her birthday, a mysterious woman comes forward and says she was sent on behalf of Trinity’s Grandmother. Leaving England, and the only home she knows, Trinity sets out to go meet her only relative.
This book has so many twists and turns that you stayed glued, waiting to see what happens next. Then when you’re done, you realize that this book is written for preteens/teens. The character development, plot, and writing style is just so good. There’s action, adventure, and also the possible beginnings of a romance. The story line is so intriguing, is Trinity possibly the reincarnation of the Ancient Egyptian Goddess Bast? I really can’t wait for book two. Ms. Kalo, you have piqued my interest with a really intriguing story. Thank you!!

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.
