Isadora’s family is seriously screwed up.

Of course, as the human daughter of Egyptian gods, that pretty much comes with the territory. She’s also stuck with parents who barely notice her, and a house full of relatives who can’t be bothered to remember her name. After all, they are going to be around forever—and she’s a mere mortal.

Isadora’s sick of living a life where she’s only worthy of a passing glance, and when she has the chance to move to San Diego with her brother, she jumps on it. But Isadora’s quickly finding that a “normal” life comes with plenty of its own epic complications—and that there’s no such thing as a clean break when it comes to family. Much as she wants to leave her past behind, she can’t shake the ominous dreams that foretell destruction for her entire family. When it turns out there may be truth in her nightmares, Isadora has to decide whether she can abandon her divine heritage after all.

Another element I love to read in book is mythology is God and Goddess. I think the whole theory is fascinating! When an author takes the books and throws a twist in there, I can’t wait to read it.

Plot: What would you do if your parents were Gods? I think that be pretty cool. I really enjoyed getting into this plot and learning everything about them.The main character, Isadora is quite the gal. She is strong yet wants to be independent. Be her own person instead of who she is called to be. The daughter of a god, destined to die mortal and worship her parents.  Each chapter lead up to growth of Isadore and her becoming who she wants to be. She learns more about herself and others around her. She begins to think differently.

Love: I think that this is the coolest part ever! It is so neat how well this author pieced the entire story together using stars. I loved watching this friendship grow into more. Watching these two characters let down their guard and trust on another is a bog step. I think they both have characteristics that each can learn from. Still, I think the way this particular element of stars is super cool.

Drama: Not only does this book have good use of stars but it also pertains lots of drama between the Gods. I mean, duh? How can you not. The struggle for power and worship is fierce in the book leading for some good action and plot twists.

Overall, I love this book! It was a quick, easy read that I divulge instantly.  The plot is simple yet contains so much in characters and plot. Held together with beautifully written tales of power and betrayal, The Chaos Of Star is awesome.

I give it 5 BITES!

    Maybe this’ll sound odd/cheesy/weird but I’ll always turn and give a book a second glance if it’s about mythology or gods or anything like that! I haven’t read anything by Kiersten White [BUT I KNOW I SHOULD], and this one sounds absolutely amazing!!

    Love stories + stars are such an extra, delightful bonus. I’ve read For Darkness Shows The Stars and everything in it seems so much more romantic with some cosmology involved! =D

    WILL NEED TO GET TO READING THIS ONE!! Awesome review!

      I do the same thing. Mythology always grabs me. Let me know what you think about it.

      Yay! Please read it 🙂

  3. So glad you loved this! I really really liked it too. I loved watching Isadora change and grow into her own.

  4. I’m glad you liked this book! I loved the humor that Isadora had. Her voice was really good, but I didn’t connect to the love story as much as you did. I kind of wish there was a sequel because I’d be willing to keep reading 😀
