Egypt, love, family, adventure, and a Princess Bride reference = My favorite book of all time

My 7-stars_logobook review of

“Son of War, Daughter of Chaos”

by Janette Rallison

SOWDOC

If I could extend the 5 star rating I’d give this book 7 stars. I might have to give it my favorite book of all time award. There are so many things I loved about this story. First, what caught my attention was the Egyptian aspect. Which this story does not disappoint. Not only do you get a great dose of Egyptian Myths and Legends but you go and explore the Great Pyramids, Cairo, Luxor, and The Valley of the Kings. It’s written with amazing details. I feel like I’ve been inside the pyramids and have gone places no tourist can go. Not only do you go on this thrilling adventure but the characters are deep and intelligent and real. I cried at times. I laughed out loud at humorous moments. I couldn’t put the book down with so many gripping life and death situations. I honestly didn’t know how the story was going to end. One of the things I love best about picking up a Janette Rallison book is I know it will have a happy ending. I seriously hope this will not be the end of the line for Aislynn’s story but it did leave me beyond satisfied.

I have to share a scene that clinched the deal of being my favorite story of all time:

“Just to be difficult, I asked for grapes then pretended to be an Egyptian goddess, with slaves fanning her with palm fronds while they fed her peeled grapes. Dane refused to peel my grapes or to fan me with palm fronds, but I still referred to him as “slave boy” anyway.
“Slave boy, can you get me a pillow for my feet?”
“Slave boy, I’d like some potato chips now.”
He smiled when I gave him these instructions and always said, “As you wish.”
