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 loved this book for more than one reasons!
Right from the first page I loved they way the author wrote this novel!
It was captivating and so professional that it amazed me!
Zoe Kalo knew exactly how to emphasize all the right things, while at the same time bringing in all the action right from the beginning, and giving us a very good idea of the personality of the main heroine, Trinity.
And, I absolutely loved Trinity's character, too!
She was strong and independent, and ready to defend the weak, against the bullies.
When a mysterious woman, claiming to be a friend of her dying grandmother, shows up at the orphanage where Trinity has spent the first 16 years of her life, she is quite suspicious, especially after what the nun who runs the orphanage tells her, regarding the day they found her on their doorstep.
But, she still has to follow the woman, Dr. Nassri to her new home, an Island full of cats.
There, things get even more exciting and complicated.
This storyline is quite interesting, but what was also amazing for me and my thoughts of this book, was not only Trinity's personality, but a [articular similarity with me, too.
She was born on the same day as me (a fact that in this book is very important).
I loved reading about a girl who, not was born on the same date as me, but this exact date was also that important, and a crucial part of the plot.
And, another plus of the book? It was FULL of cats.
And, I adore cats!! (My name is Cat-erina, after all.)
All in all, 5 stars for an amazing read,
that is definitely going to my Favorites list, too!
