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.
Who would have thought that I would get to read another Colleen Houck novel. I adored her when I was a little younger than my current age. Have you heard of her Tiger’s curse saga? I was totally on Team Kishan, but Colleen begged to differ. Anyways, when a review tour was open for signups, I jumped right in and requested for it. It’s another
Indian Egyptian mythology. I really enjoyed that Colleen included bits of historical background regarding Egypt, I had no clue what the hell these characters were talking about, so it was a good call to include extra details.
I might have found it a little awkward about how our two main characters met. It was a little too easy for me, it’s similar to what happened in the Tiger’s Curse saga. Like for example, the parents of the protagonist did not question the fact that she was missing for a very very very long time for a quest to save humanity. Colleen Houck needs to work on that. I had a feeling that she attempted to fix the crisis by writing that Amon (ah-moan) had the ability to bring Lily back to her original time when they haven’t met yet. Still, it felt a little awkward that Lily was able to absorb all this magic crap in a few days. She’s a New Yorker damn it!
Despite some of my dislike from major factors of the book. I loved that there were characters like Amon’s brothers who put a little light into the book. Scratch that- the book wasn’t at all heavy or full of action. That was one of its major flaws, Colleen ended the climax of the story with a soft blow. No detailed explanation, no major obstacles, no drastic changes, it was just one simple problem that was solved with one simple solution. Boring as hell!
Nothing much happened in the story but I enjoyed myself as I read. The new thing about this Colleen Houck novel is that there’s humor in it. Amon couldn’t handle the whole advanced technology thing. He called a taxi a golden chariot and from what I remember he thought phones were oracles. It was really fun reading Reawakened. This won’t be the last I read from this series. It ended with a very irksome cliffhanger. I’m going to die from waiting!!!
Check out my Novel Beauty post of this book. I took lots of pictures of its interior and exterior design.
Forgive me for being gone so long. I can’t promise you all that I’m going to be as active as I was before. I just don’t have the luxury anymore…I’ve got to be honest, I’ll most likely be back in shape on February of 2016, that’s the month where I’m going to be free. I’m so sorry for missing out so much, I miss blog hopping and chatting with you all, really. I’m not trying to sugarcoat that I’ll quit blogging anytime soon because I won’t be. Here are 4 Gones that’ll explain my situation.
My blog and internet social life has been quiet lately…I’ve got to admit that I didn’t expect to be so out of it. My college entrance exams are making me feel pressured because when I try to blog, my mind has a voice telling me to stop blogging and focus on college first. That’s my excuse that I haven’t been online much.
Twitter has been a little quiet for me since I don’t check for updates anymore. I’ve always been on and off about twitter. I rarely read tweets about the personal lives of other book bloggers. I’m also quite shy to tweet about my blog because my friends follow me on twitter and know quiet a lot about my blogging life. I just want to share that one of my friends went out of line and told me that I have horrible grammar on my blog, she told me to get a proof reader. In my head: Fuck you. Reality: Oh yeah, I know but I don’t give a shit.
I’ve taken a new interest. Reading books isn’t my norm anymore. I’ve been reading Manga recently, and they are very enjoyable. I’d recommend you try Horimiya & Ookami Shoujo To Kuro Ouji, they are both my favorites right now. Still, I hoard a lot of books from my local stores and they are currently in a state where they collect dust.
Depression wasn’t always a problem for me, but I was really upset that I lost so much weight. I lost my little angel, Poochie. If you follow me on instagram you’d know how adorable she was. She didn’t die…she was stolen from me. Right now, I just pray that she is safe with family who will love her as much as I did. I cried for days when I lost her, my parents were not emotionally supportive because we aren’t a cheezy family which I get why. But they loved me enough to buy me a new pet that’s a similar breed. I’m glad to have such good people in my life.
