Daughter of the Sun 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.
This book is an amazing introduction to the writing style of Zoe Kalo.  Having never really read about reincarnation, this story took me by surprise. The characters are amazing!  Trinity is a strong person to begin with; especially with her background. Fast forward and here she is going to somewhere where someone claims to be related to her. One of the things I love most about this story is the location. Based off an actual island with cats, being able to picture the scene is an amazing feat in which Ms. Kalo does not disappoint.  The element of instalove is not there which is a good thing in my opinion. Even with the new found family, there isn't rainbows and smiley faces everywhere. There are so many unanswered questions  that I have but am hopeful that Book 2 will reveal some of the answers I am hoping to find.

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.
