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.

Review:

I bought this book with my own money in order to provide an honest review for our subscribers.

I was very excited for this book, I had previously read Colleen’s Tiger Saga (except for the last novel in the series, which  be sure to keep an eye out a review for the series will be out soon) and knew that I would fall in love with this book, I loved the plot and setting overall from the beginning of this series. Colleen has a way of creating a world that you can easily picture and become a part of, and each of the characters are not very hard to picture, including potential “book boyfriends”.

Now the only thing that I did notice, that unlike her previous series, I did find this one a bit easy to interpret, meaning, it seemed like I was able to figure out what was going to happen next almost instantly, which wasn’t necessarily a bad thing, but the ideas came to me easily also because it seemed somewhat similar to her previous series plot, aside from the setting, characters and names etc. Of course there were difference between the two, I just would have liked to have seen more differences, in reality it was similar but different enough that it was still enjoyable to the point where you couldn’t put the book down.

I would recommend this series to anyone, as Colleen is a talented author who has continued to capture her readers attentions.
