    When I first started reading this book, I knew that I was in for something beyond anything I had read thus far. I have been pretty stuck on fantasy lately, and was expecting just another fantasy novel. What I got was so much more. Ms. Obodo has achieved something here I have not seen before. There is fantasy, yes, but it starts out reading more like a sci-fi novel and then blends into a combination of sci-fi and fantasy. It was such a perfect marriage of the two genres.

I have been pretty stuck on fantasy lately, and was expecting just another fantasy novel. What I got was so much more. Ms. Obodo has achieved something here I have not seen before. There is fantasy, yes, but it starts out reading more like a sci-fi novel and then blends into a combination of sci-fi and fantasy. It was such a perfect marriage of the two genres. When you meet Memphis, she strikes you as, different, but you just cannot put your finger on it. When she starts seeing the television show, you also get this vibe that something is not as it appears. I felt, as I kept reading the pages, that I was actually feeling and experiencing the strange events that seemed to happen in the book. The characters were odd, but believable. I will also say that something about Jonathan irritated me from the very beginning. He just struck me as the type of character that one would love to hate. I can't say any more about him without spoilers, but wow, was I not expecting the way things played out. The use of suspense in this novel was excellently played out and the writer kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I was not able to put this one down and read it in the course of less than 48 hours. You really do need to read this one. The only thing that kept me from giving a 5 star rating was the bit of a slow start and it took me a little bit to get the feel of it, but admittedly that may be for a lack of understanding of the very technical nature of the astronomy descriptions being beyond my knowledge level. However, this novel has inspired me to learn more about astronomy and astrology. It is a quick read once you get to the meat of the story. My reading app on my tablet pegged it at 147 pages, though the description lists it as a bit longer than that. More in the realm of a short novel than a full length, but I am left with a longing and a need to know how the story proceeds. Be warned, there are major cliffhangers and you will be left gasping for breath in frustration at what is to come next.

    First, I won this book in a goodreads giveaway. So, thank you to all parties involved in getting my free copy to me ;3 As for the book itself, I really did not like it at all. The plot line was... interesting. That much is true, but the path to getting there was rocky and rather boring. I wanted to put this book down several times and simply give up on it. From the long lectures about the stars and astronomy, to the overly detailed points of natal charts, I was severely lost. When reading, I want First, I won this book in a goodreads giveaway.

That much is true, but the path to getting there was rocky and rather boring. I wanted to put this book down several times and simply give up on it. From the long lectures about the stars and astronomy, to the overly detailed points of natal charts, I was severely lost. When reading, I want to hear about the story. A little bit of backing information is never a problem, but the fact that the majority of the book seemed to be a lecture was a turn off. Also, there was a point where there was an initial discussion about Memphis' nationality. It was described that many people thought that she was Hispanic, but when it came down to it, she was black. This strikes me as odd. If you're using proper terminology throughout the novel, and then use the word "black" to describe the African-American nationality, without even capitalizing the letter "b" to let the reader know that it was a reference to nationality, I think that's sort of a problem. It struck me as odd. The book, also seems to be all over the place with little additions here and there. It doesn't make much sense. First, Memphis is just a special girl born at a speical time, with powers and such. Then she's a star child with Star essence, and powers, and has to rise through the gates, and it's all just very daunting to keep tacking on things. If there are more books, I would hope that they focused more on the story of the descendants, rather then a lesson on terminology and the differences between astronomy, astrology, and astronography. I don't care about the stars or the houses. I wanted to know about Memphis' journey.

    This book fits snugly into the paranormal genre, but it has an essence of Sci-Fi to add a little character. I started reading this book a few months ago and gave up after a few chapters, because the sentences seemed a tad off. I came back to the book this week, started reading and was quite interested in some of the ideas the author came up with. Mixing horoscopes, chakras, the third eye, unknown galaxies and strange powers was indeed a whole new way to explore the genre.

Halfway through the book there were some formatting issues, which the author may be unaware of. I felt it could do with a little rein tightening, some of the ideas were all over the place and the scenes towards the end a little rushed. Saying all that I think this author has some great storylines, it could just do with a little more focus. Oh a lest I forget I loved the whole email subplot, that really amused me. In actual fact I could do with that happening to me. I received a free book for my review.

    This one was a mixed bag for me. I enjoyed the underlying story line and Memphis was a great character. We met some wonderful characters near the end but didn’t get to learn much about them. I was surprised by who a few of the characters actually turned out to be. There were many sections which felt like long lectures on astronomy, astrophysics, the stars and natal charts. This was a bit too much to take in. It was a very short story so some parts of the book felt rushed. The cliff hanger ending This one was a mixed bag for me.

Sure I understand it’s the beginning of a series but it just ended way to abruptly. I was unable to read the book on my kindle but could read it on my kindle app on my phone. This was annoying though as the phone is so tiny! I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my review.

    I enjoy Egyptian mythology and astrology, as well as a good romance and thriller, so theoretically I should have enjoyed this. But I didn't. There were so many great ideas and concepts, but the execution was terrible and the writing was so predictable, I couldn't be surprised at any of the twists when they came up. Not to mention there was too much scientific information presented that I ended up skimming a good portion of it, simply to continue with the plot.

This book feels very unrefined and unfinished, perhaps even rushed; and considering the shortness of it, I wonder if it was a National Novel Writing Month entry. There were parts I liked, but there's only so much disbelief I can suspend before my brain calls it quits.

    I have no comment about the story but do want to comment on the cover. The protagonist is black. Why is the lady on the cover white with red hair? Is it supposed to be her? Or just some lady? Who picked a white lady for the cover? I hope they just didn't read the book, not that they based their choice on something else, like that books with black people on the fronts are less appealing, or another dumb reason.

It makes me feel like I have my finger on the pulse of what cheap-minded people are reading. Ha.)

    I enjoyed the beginning of Rise of the Wadjet Witch. Main character Memphis has a mysterious past and her process of discovering it makes for good reading. I appreciated the background on chackras, astrology, etc., as much of it was new to me and the rest I needed a refresher. But the last part of the book switched from a tale of discovery to an action adventure. A lot of new characters were introduced, but I felt there was no chance to get to know them.

    I just saw there was a giveaway for this book! But it's fine it was only 4 bucks to download. It was a great read. I've always loved witches, but this was a different take. Egyptian mystical witches! And Isis is her grandmother. They go into astronomy, astronomy and alchemy. A lot of A's. But I like it. It's an adult read but not a romance novel more wordy. I'm in love with her love interest Luri he sounds adorable and can read minds. Over blood suckers. Kind of ended with a cliff hanger, I hope I just saw there was a giveaway for this book!

    I was drawn in by the cover. Very nice. So, this book is about a serial killer who kills by stabbing in the third eye. This has got to be one of the most unique ideas I have come across in a long time. Also, there is a girl handing out horoscopes that are freakishly accurate.

    To say the truth I was intrigued by the astronomy-witch plot of the book. It turned out more than I expected. Astronomy meets astrology in a quiet crescendo, that eventually mingles with Egyptian mythology and their modern protectors. Stars from afar walking modern Earth. An unexpected and unusual mix. A well-paced book. I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.

    I'm not really sure what to say about this one, it was interesting but rather bizarre. A little of the astrological talk was above my head but it was easier to follow when they explained it with the story of Ra and the creation of the eye. I really want to read the next one and see where it's headed. I'm not really sure what to say about this one, it was interesting but rather bizarre.

    It was kinda slow and boring during the beginning. But after I got in a couple chapters it was good. If a second book comes out, I will totally read it because I want to know what happens next.
