Son of War, Daughter of Chaos by Janette Rallison: 4 of 5 STARS YA Review

Son of War, Daughter of Chaos by Janette Rallison. July 2014. Goodreads.

Aislynn is accustomed to watching for the enemy. Her parents instructed her from the time she was young to look for the signs: people with greater than normal strength, eyes that can glow green, and have the ability to jump long distances. Over the years, Aislynn has come to view her parents’ fears as quirks—things that get in the way of having a normal high school life.

When Aislynn’s mother dies under suspicious conditions, her father doubles his restrictions. But all his precautions can’t stop the boy with glowing green eyes from finding Aislynn. She realizes too late she’s been drafted into an ancient Egyptian war, whether she’s prepared or not.


I have read all of Janette Rallison’s books! She is one of my all time favorite authors. This was a really fun read with entertainment, Egyptian history, and some great romance.

Aislynn thought she lived a normal human teenage life, but she felt her Dad was a little crazy. For some reason he didn’t keep her informed about their unique life. She learned soon enough that her life was extremely abnormal.

Aislynn got to know a boy named Dane in her high school. He was someone she really fell for. Dane was super strong and the sweetest guy. After a little while, her relationship with him got very interesting. I don’t want to give anything else away. Just know that this book was really fun to read and learn about Aislynn and her unique family. It got more into Egyptian history than I prefer, but I think most of you would enjoy that.

Son of War, Daughter of Chaos was such a fun read with a little romance and lots of excitement. I really look forward to reading the next book in this series. Of course, I love reading every single book by Janette Rallison.
