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.
I love any type of book about mythology, and this one is about Egyptian Mythology no less! I don’t know much about Egyptian mythology but it seems very intriguing to learn more about. And seriously, who wouldn’t want to go an adventure with an Egyptian god come to life to save man kind?! Plus the cover is to die for! Everything about it looks so beautiful and magical. This one is definitely my kind of book, and I cannot wait to read this one.
