In the first book of the SISTERS OF ISIS series, THE SUMMONING, we were introduced to Sudi, Dalila, and Meri, who had all discovered that they are descendants of the Egyptian Pharaohs and that each of them possess their own power. Sudi was trying to let the news sink in while also attempting to maintain the same life, getting a date with her crush, Scott, and trying to defeat the Cult of Anubis. Well, accomplishing one out of those three things isn't so bad.
Now it's time for Meri to tell her story. Meri's life was never that simple, what with having a mother who is a very respected politician and the press always following her every move. And discovering that she has special powers just makes things worse. At least she has Dalila and Sudi to keep her on her feet.
But Meri's life is just prone to problems. Turns out Sudi's crush, Scott, is beginning to be interested in Meri. Yet Meri isn't at all interested in Scott, since she can't get Abdel out of her mind. If only she didn't act like such a dork and mess things up whenever Abdel is around. Aside from that, Michelle, one of the popular girls at Meri's private school, has decided to make Meri her next target. And the newspapers are starting to catch Meri at her worst moments.
While trying to find solutions to these problems, it's up to Meri, Sudi, and Dalila to defeat Apep, their newest enemy. But is this just too much for Meri to handle?
As the second novel in the SISTERS OF ISIS series, Lynne Ewing takes readers deeper into this new world. Meri helps us understand that being well known has more disadvantages then advantages and having friends that can help and understands you will make it easy to resolve any problems. Fans of this series will be satisfied with DIVINE ONE and all that is has to offer.
