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.


Why am I waiting?This is going to be epic. The blurb alone shows us a glimpse of an adventure unlike any others. I like the sound of an “Egyptian prince with godlike powers“. Not to mention the mummies and an evil shape-shifting god named Seth. Seth for God sake! Can’t help thinking of Seth from the Covenant series and The Return by Jennifer Armentrout. Lol! Sounds really awesome right? The book cover is so amazing too! I’m so excited and of course, it’s Colleen Houck. I guess there’s nothing much to say. 😀

Anyway, let’s just get to your favorite part. Giveaways!
I’m not sure if this is for International though, but I guess it is.

Book GiveawayAll you need to do is to pick a song that you want to be included on the Reawakened’s official playlist. You have until May 28th to enter.  The winner will be announced in early June.



He ignored me and after a brief perusal of the box’s contents, rose with a grunt of frustration. “They are not here.”
“The death jars?” I asked.
“Yes. These are replicas. They do not hold my life force.”
“Life force, right.” Definitely crazy.
Mumbling a few excuses, I stood and began my retreat, but he immediately followed me.
“Without my life force, I am merely a walking shadow on borrowed time,” he stated gravely.
His hazel eyes locked with mine in a disturbingly determined way as I backed away nervously. “I need sustenance, Young Lily,” he said while advancing.
“Sustenance, okay.” Please don’t let hot foreign model guy turn into Hannibal Lecter. “Well, there are a lot of places where you can get something to eat. May I recommend the Roof Garden Café on the fifth floor?” I backed around a stack of crates as I gave him directions, but he pressed forward.
“Do not run away, Young Lily.”
“Run?” I tittered anxiously. “I’m not running. But speaking of running, if the Roof Garden is too far, there’s always the American Wing Café. It’s right next to the Egyptian exhibit. You can’t miss it. Well, I’ve got a meeting to get to. I’ve really got to go.”
“You do not understand. Without my jars I must share your life force.”
“Share my . . . Well, see, that’s the thing, I’m using mine just now, thank you. Really wish I could help you, I do,” I said, realizing he’d backed me up against a wall of crates. When my backside hit the barrier, he smiled. Without a second thought, I blasted him in the face with the pepper spray. Howling, he doubled over. At the same time a wind began to swirl around him, lifting little pieces of dust and construction material into the air.

Anyway, no book or blog tours scheduled yet so I think I’ve covered everything. I’ll update this whenever I’ll find something new until this will be released. So always check back when you’re free. Okay? By the way, care to share the books you’re dying to read? Comment and I’ll check on it.
