The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White
Published: September 10, 2013
Isadora is the daughter or the Egyptian gods Isis and Osiris, but she is a human. She is tired of feeling unimportant and so she goes to San Diego to live with her brother. Her stay is not without its problems and she learns that you can’t always escape family drama.
I loved this book! I’ve read Kiersten’s And I Darken book and I enjoyed that writing; and while it’s different to Chaos, I find myself hooked on her writing. And I Darken is definitely much darker than this book, which has a lighter feel to it. I am a huge fan of mythology and I love reading books based on gods and goddesses like this. I haven’t read a Rick Riordan yet but I hope to eventually since I know his books are all about mythology like this.
As the story went on, you got to meet interesting characters. I personally really liked Isadora as a main character, as well as Ry, and Tyler! I personally felt bad for Isadora because she so badly wanted to matter to her family and she really just felt like she didn’t. And they really didn’t go out of their way to make her feel better, which was sad. Ry was interesting, especially with his Greek background, and I enjoyed Tyler’s personality. She was really sweet and lively and it brought up the feeling of the book.
I think I worded that wrong.
I’m trying to say Tyler brought a livelier atmosphere to the story which I loved.
Overall the mystery of the story was fun, the dream moments were cool, the characters were different, and the plot was something I haven’t read much of personally. I definitely would recommend this. It’s a cute story and a quick read by an amazing author!
I hope to read more of Kiersten’s writing in the future. I’m torn on which one I want to read next from her. Let me know in the comments your suggestions!
Also let me know in the comments your thoughts on this novel, as I would love to know!
