Reawakened (The Reawakened #1) by Colleen Houck
Release Date: August 11, 2015
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 really enjoy anything — fiction and nonfiction — about Ancient Egypt. Right now I’m extra hungry for more to read since I’ve been watching Spike’s Tut miniseries. I’ve had my eye on REAWAKENED for a while, but now seems like an apt time to feature it in a Waiting on Wednesday post. I like the summary for REAWAKENED – I’m curious to see what a reawakened Egyptian prince will think of the modern world.
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.
