Summary from Goodreads
Seth O’Keefe has broken the laws of his god. He never thought he would sacrifice his own future to protect a Daughter of Isis. But when the Sons of Set discovered Natti is the Secret Keeper, he had no choice. Now, Seth and Natti are on the run from his father, who wants nothing more than to see Seth dead. With no allies, Seth turns to the Daughters of Isis for help, hoping they would protect Natti. But when they meet the Daughters, he discovers a secret that puts both their lives in more danger. Low on options, Seth sees only one possibility for survival. He must help Natti solve an ancient puzzle and find the secret name of Ra.
Natara “Natti” Stone is having a hard time swallowing the truth. She can’t believe what she has learned in the past twenty-four hours: Seth is a Son of Set blessed with charm; she is a Daughter of Isis blessed with a sliver of Ma ‘at; the locket her grandmother gave her holds an ancient Egyptian secret linking to Osiris and Isis. That along with being tortured and brutalized by the Sons of Set, she can hardly hold herself together. Thank God for Seth’s touch! That warm, tingling sensation that drowns it all out. Yet her heart struggles to stay focused. She must quickly embrace her destiny before the secret name of Ra falls into the wrong hands.

Son of Set picks up where Daughter of Isis left off and that's with Natara and Seth on the run from Sean, Seth's father and the Son of Sets. Sean is determined to get Natti and find out Ra's name and no matter where they go, he will find them but the time has come for Natti to accept who she is and embrace the full length of her legacy and her power.
Even if in Son of Set Natara's story continues, the title gives us a hint that it's time we got to know Seth a little bit better. Seth is an essential part of the Descendants of Isis series but he's also essential in Natti's life as well. For Seth, there is no doubt that he would die in order to protect Natti and that means how much he truly loves her because since he turned his back and he's considered a traitor to Set, he's lost his immortality and once he dies, there's no afterlife for him.
There's no way anybody could deny the attraction between Natti and Seth. Seth is well...Seth but Natti loves him for who he is and she doesn't care if he was a Son of Set. The thing about her feelings is that they are part genuine because Seth has charmed her a lot of times and she's become "addicted" in a way. But she's started to control her powers and that means that she can resist his charm and the result is that she still loves him!
We also get to read more about his family. What a manipulative and arrogant monster he's father is, how loving and caring her mother was and the secret she cared with her all these years, a secret that makes Seth an abomination. We finally meet more Daughters of Isis who help Natti understand her history a little bit better but Sean is determined to vanish them from the face of the earth once and for all.
When you read a series, the first book seems very good to you and when you read the sequel you end up being disappointed but that's not the issue with Son of Set. The story is well written and action packed, Kelsey Ketch has done a very impressive research on Egyptian mythology and anybody can verify that when they read the series and then there's this love story that it was doomed before it even started but Natti and Seth are willing to experience for as long as they can!
