Synopsis: When seventeen-year-old Lilliana Young enters the Metropolitan Museum of Art one morning during spring break, the last thing she expects to find is a live Egyptian prince with godlike powers, who has been reawakened after a thousand years of mummification.
And she really can't imagine being chosen to aid him in an epic quest that will lead them across the globe to find his brothers and complete a grand ceremony that will save mankind.
But fate has taken hold of Lily, and she, along with her sun prince, Amon, must travel to the Valley of the Kings, raise his brothers, and stop an evil, shape-shifting god named Seth from taking over the world.
From New York Times bestselling author Colleen Houck comes an epic adventure about two star-crossed teens who must battle mythical forces and ancient curses on a journey with more twists and turns than the Nile itself.
My Thoughts: I honestly loved every minute of this story!! I have always loved Egyptian mythology and this book does a great job delving into stories of Egypt. This book renewed my love of Egyptian mythology. The characters are easy to love and connect with and Amon and Lily together are Amon-azing. The way the author describes every little details makes it easy to forget you're reading a book, I was pulled right into the story line and felt every emotion the characters were feeling. I was continuously left on the edge on my seat cushion while reading all the different obstacles the group overcomes.
The author does a great job tying up all the ends that I have a hard time imagining where the story will go next, but as long as Amon and Lily are together I'll be happy!! I loved reading the Egyptian stories Amon and the other characters tell along their journey and watching Lily grow in into the powerful women she never realized she wanted to be. I was left with a feeling of euphoria after finishing the story and can't wait to read more when the second book, Recreated, is released this August.
