"Sisters of Isis" by Lynne Ewing

Meri, Sudi, and Dalila are three girls who live in Washington, D.C., but have little else in common. Or so they think. When an ancient magic is revealed, so are their true identities as Sisters of Isis. The Summoning After receiving an anonymous invitation to dinner at the Sky Terrace, Sudi meets a mysterious guy named Abdel, and two other girls, both strangers. Sudi doesn't know whether to laugh or run when Abdel claims that she and the other girls are the descendants of Egyptian pharaohs, powerful ancestors who have given them magical gifts and powers of transformation. But when evil forces begin to threaten her world, Sudi has no choice but to believe. Divine One It's bad enough that Meri had to leave her laid-back life in California for a snobby prep school in Washington, D.C. Now her mom, Senator Stark, has decided to run for her party's presidential nomination, and Meri is being forced into the spotlight more than ever. But while Meri dodges the paparazzi, the Sisters' newest enemy--Apep, the Egyptian god of darkness and chaos--is on the loose, devouring innocent people and bringing unnatural storms. Meri knows he must be stopped. But have things already spun too far out of her control?

If anyone knows me, I am in love with ancient Egypt. This book caught my eye at the bookstore and I snatched it  up. Finally getting to it, I read it in a day. I want the rest of the books right now. Wonderfully written, easy to read, great descriptions and incredibly awesome characters. I am dying to know what happens next. Lynne Ewing is an exceptional author and I am definately going to rate this as a MUST READ if you love YA with loads of fantasy and magic stuff...Loads of action, love and so on!!! Loved it and I am totally looking forward to the next addition!!!

  1. I agree about Lynne Ewing being an exceptional author. She's been my all-time favorite writer since 2001, back when I discovered her Daughters of the Moon series, which is similar to Sisters of Isis, but focuses on Greek mythology instead of Egyptian. You should check that out while waiting for a second Sisters of Isis omnibus to be released! (Or, you can track down the out-of-print releases of the next two books--they're pretty affordable online....)
