Son of War, Daughter of Chaos by Janette Rallison $25 Amazon or Paypal Cash giveaway & review
Son of War, Daughter of Chaos
Aislynn is accustomed to watching for the enemy. Her parents instructed her from the time she was young to look for the signs: people with greater than normal strength, eyes that can glow green, and have the ability to jump long distances. Over the years, Aislynn has come to view her parents’ fears as quirks—things that get in the way of having a normal high school life.
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, whether she’s prepared or not.
Janette Rallison is old. Don’t ask how old, because it isn’t polite. Let’s just say she’s older than she’d like to be and leave it at that.
Janette lives in Chandler, Arizona with her husband, five children and enough cats to classify her as “an eccentric cat lady.” She did not do this on purpose. (The cats, that is; she had the children on purpose.) Every single one of the felines showed up on its own and refuses to leave. Not even the family’s fearless little Westie dog can drive them off.
Since Janette has five children and deadlines to write books, she doesn’t have much time left over for hobbies. But since this is the internet and you can’t actually check up to see if anything on this site is true, let’s just say she enjoys dancing, scuba diving, horse back riding and long talks with Orlando Bloom. (Well, I never said he answers back.)
My review: Son of War, Daughter of Chaos by Janette Rallison
This would be a hard choice to make. I kept on thinking what would I really do in her place. Aislynn finds out about her family's past choices. She learned that everyone was keeping secrets from her.
This is a gripping tale of moral choices. What is right or wrong? What can she live with? It has lots of interesting characters. Lots of action, romance, drama, history and a parnormal element in it too.
Aislynn is in high school. She has a crush on one of her brother's new friend Dane. Her family is always moving changing names running from the enemies. Her mother has been dead for under a year.
Aislynn learns her fathers fears are a real concern as they have to run again and leave almost everything behind. She learns to not trust anyone or anything.
The setting for this book is all over the world. It starts with them living in Arizona, goes to the poles to Boston to Egypt and so on.
Aislynn learns she is not like anyone else. Her parents were on different sides of a war. She has half of her father and half of her mother in her.
I really like Aislynn and how she makes hard choices. She takes what she has learned and uses it to try and help her family but only if they make right choices too.
I enjoyed the ride of Son of War, Daughter of Chaos. It is a book I did not want to put down. I could not see a good choice to make for Aislynn. I loved the choices she did make.
I would love to read more books from Janette Rallison in the future.
I was given this ebook to read so I could honestly review it and be part of its blog tour.
An Egyptian tomb is only a good place to die if you happen to be the pharaoh for whom it was built. And maybe not even then. I didn’t intend to room with any of the deceased, which meant the sooner I got out of this place the better.
My flashlight swept over the figures on the mural in front of me. A feeling of danger and expectation clung to everything here, as thick as the dust. On the mural, a warrior with bright green eyes stared back at me. Horusian glowing eyes. I could almost see the smugness in his expression, an expression that said he was coming for me. Or at least his kind were.
Behind me, something creaked. Footsteps.
