"Sixteen-year-old Isadora's relationship with her parents is more strained than most, which is understandable, given that she's the human child of Egyptian gods Isis and Osiris. Still, at least they let their daughter leave their desert stronghold for modern day California, where Isadora works on a museum exhibit, hones her interior design skills, resists the charms of Greek poet Ry, and is targeted by dangerous mystical forces. Romantic and angsty but not too heavy, The Chaos of Stars "brings an irreverent sense of humor to Egyptian myth" (Publishers Weekly)."

Read it in a day!

Love the surreal yet completely realistic story. Characters are easy to connect too. While sometime predictable, that is part of it's charm.

I liked this book a lot. I was concerned about the portrayal of the egyptian gods and goddesses, but I think Ms White did a great job in that reguard. I love how she combined teenage angst and having parents who are also gods. the twist at the end was great. I made me want to learn more about Egyptian dieties.

The characters are well written especially the main who is (thankfully) different than typically ones as long as you're not taking the the predictable 'falling for that perfect guy' thing into account. Her mysterious dreams were a great lead up full of mystery and intrigue and wondering if it's a monster that will bring ill will etc. and then...what actually happens is so dull. It's a great lead up filled with interesting characters, a cute peculiar friendship/romance, and then when you get to the climax and the character has to engage in it you're left thinking 'that's it..?'. But it's an enjoyable story nevertheless. Though the incorporation of the Egyptian mythology was nicely done, a better climax/problem would've been great. Oh well.

A great twist on Egyptian mythology. I liked the concept but the story was very predictable.

This book is kind of hilarious in it's own way. The set up is so perfectly templated that you can basically predict the ending one or two chapters in - and then the fun is watching everything happen like you think it's going to. As usual, Kiersten writes some engaging characters, and that's the only thing saving this story from complete mediocrity.

A unique take on the modern mythology take. A quick, breezy read with a fast plot that you won't want to put down. Funny, romantic and realistic. Loved it.

For the record, there is also an ebook edition.
