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 perfect for those who like young adult mythology. For those who like books like the Percy Jackson series, this one would work wonders. The story line is intricately woven with an equal amount of mystery and mythology. As a kid, I used to be fascinated with Egyptian mythology, so this book was quite interesting to me.
The writing style is quite simple, but then if you look at the age of the target audience, it is perfect.
Initially, the story takes a while for the story to hook the reader, but when the main protagonist, Trinity finds the mysterious ring and the torn papyrus, that is when the story starts building up and sort of draws the reader in. You start becoming invested in it and start wondering how and what will happen next.
The characterization and the character development was quite strong so it became fun to read.
Overall, a good book for the new young adults.
