Daughter of the Sun by Zoe Kalo COVER REVEAL

Daughter of the Sun by Zoe Kalo
(Cult of the Cat, #1)
Publication date: May 1st 2016
Genres: Fantasy, Mythology, Young Adult

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.

I was given a book in exchange for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with this book.

Trinity is born during an eclipse.  She was dropped off at a convent and raised by nuns.  Her closest friend Beth was dropped off at the convent the day after she was, which was very unusual.  She and Beth got into a fight over Beth's cruelty to a cat. When teenager Trinity is summoned by the nuns, she assumes she will be punished.  Instead Trinity's life is about to change forever.  She is told that she has a living grandmother.  Her life will never be the same and thus her journey begins.

This is a very entertaining Ya book.  It contains mystery, adventure and other elements that kept me hooked until the end.  I will definitely continue reading this series.  It is well written and fast paced.  I really liked Trinity and how her character developed.   It is a great start to a new series.
