A New York Times Bestseller! The first book in a new multi-book series from New York Times bestselling author of the Tiger's Curse series, COLLEEN HOUCK, about a teenage girl entangled in an epic Egyptian quest full of romance, adventure, and mythology! 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 cant imagine being chosen to aid him in an epic quest that will lead them across the globe. 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. Praise for Reawakened: "A sparkling new novel with a fully imagined world and mythos, and crackling romance! Egyptian mythology has never been this riveting! With sharp dialog and a fun heroine, Reawakened is precisely what you would expect from the author of the incredible Tiger Saga!"--Aprilynne Pike, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of the Wings Series. "The author weaves her story out of Egyptian lore, cinematic magic, selfless love, and . . . is clever enough to remain surprising even to the last sentence."--Kirkus Reviews "Rick Riordan fans who are looking for another series will delight in this fantasy. VERDICT: An incredibly well-researched novel with an air of mystery and romance."--SLJ "In this series opener, Houck (the Tigers Curse series) introduces a fantasy teeming with Egyptian characters and mythological stories come to life. . . Houcks moving depiction of the love between Lily and Amon is memorable."--Publisher's Weekly "Littered with Egyptian mythology and snappy dialogue, this romantic adventure is a good choice for graduates of Rick Riordan or fans of Houcks Tigers Curse series."--Booklist "Fans of paranormal romance will love the Egyptian spin on this story of devotion and sacrifice, and Lilys humor, combined with plentiful dangerous escapades, will keep readers engaged."--VOYA Praise for The Tigers Curse Series: Author Colleen Houck's first series, The Tigers Curse, was a New York Times Bestseller, a USA Today Bestseller, A Publisher's Weekly Bestseller, and A Parents' Choice Award Winner. The Tigers Curse series is also being made into a movie! Adapted by Julie Plec, creator of The Vampire Diaries, and directed by Shekhar Kapur, who directed the Academy-Award winning, Elizabeth. "A sweet romance and heart-pounding adventure . . . In short, Tiger's Curse is magical!"--Becca Fitzpatrick, New York Times bestselling author of Hush, Hush " The hot new romance-adventure series of 2011 . . ."--Teen Magazine Epic, grand adventure rolled into a sweeping love story . . . --Sophie Jordan, author of Firelight From the Hardcover edition.

I can not believe I almost forgot about the #YAScavengerHunt. It‘s this totally fun scavenger hunt where you could win books, discover new authors and new books.

It was started by a YA author (the tagged one I believe). It‘s great fun. Check it out at yash.rocks

You only have a few days for the hunt so don‘t wait.

Love Colleen's Tiger's Curse series, and thought I might try this.
Didn't find the main female as relatable as Kelsey in TC, but the main male characters had me invested.
The main female is a dramaticized uptown girl, and very hard to relate to.
Overall, I love the story elements and setting.

#👀 these are all shinny and textured and make me think they are looking at me. If you see a real one (not picture) the depth and the design of these covers are just sooo striking. Now to find time to read them.

I went into this with medium expectations and they were met -- but with a few surprises. I actually really dug with mythology and the main love interest. Worth a shot if you are into Egyptian mythology

Solid book. Lived the male main characters but hated the female main character. Absolutely adore anything to do with ancient Egypt!

While I enjoyed this, I wanted more from it. I think her other series is superior to this one, and the some of the characters seemed to lack a personality. I like the world building and the adventure, but some of the dialogue is just so silly. ☀️☀️☀️🌤

Kayla.Is.Reading Right!! I loved the Tiger's Curse series sooo much that I set a standard too high for Reawakened, and I got let down! I just don't feel Lilliana or Amun had great character development. 2y
cleoh @Kayla.Is.Reading exactly! Lilliana was so whiny and kind of a let down of a character next to Kelsey who is a badass 2y
Kayla.Is.Reading I know right!! Have you read all the Tiger's Curse books, because I really want to spoil something!!!! 2y

cleoh @Kayla.Is.Reading yes I've read them all! 2y
Kayla.Is.Reading Well, When they were going to defeat Mahishasur and Ren and Kelsey could read each other's minds and Ren told Kelsey everything and vice versa, I was totally fangirling!! I was just giggling while my sister looked at me like I was a maniac! And don't even get me started on their wedding!! Sooo cute!!!!! Now I really want to go to Japan because that's where their wedding was!! Also, their anniversary is on Monday!!! (I marked it on my calendar) 😍 2y

Kayla.Is.Reading Exactly!! I wish I could meet Colleen Houck in real life!!😍😍❤️❤️ 2y

Kayla.Is.Reading Did you know she's writing a book five??? 😱😱😱 2y
cleoh @Kayla.Is.Reading ahhh omg no! I'd heard rumours about it but those never really became anything! 2y
Kayla.Is.Reading Same!! But then I did some research on it and it turns out it's going to be named Tiger's Dream!!! 😍😍 2y
cleoh @Kayla.Is.Reading 😍😱😍 this is the best news I've heard all day 2y
Kayla.Is.Reading Lol! It's sorta weird that she's making a fifth book since she wrapped everything up during Tiger's Destiny but I'm not one to complain about another book coming out!! 😂😂 2y
cleoh @Kayla.Is.Reading yeah very true. Maybe it's 10 years in the future and the curse affects their kids or something like that? 2y
Kayla.Is.Reading Omg!!!!!!! That would be amazing!!! What if Colleen Houck decides to give their kids a whole different series?!? 😱😱😱😱 2y
cleoh @Kayla.Is.Reading I mean I'd read it 😉 2y
Kayla.Is.Reading Yeah, I would too... waits second...... Do you think their children would meet Kishan's children and go on adventures together??? *Squeals* 😝😝😝😝🤗🤗 2y

A terrible book, but still entertaining in how awful the characters and plot were. This had everything I hate in a book- racism, white savior syndrome, and a massive Mary Sue protagonist, but it reached the point where it was so bad it was good.

While I'm reviewing other iBooks, I might as well do this one too. I didn't even finish this one. Got half way through and just deleted it. I usually love things about Ancient Egypt but both the main characters seemed badly written and incredibly boring. Apparently it's part of a series. Not going to even bother with the next one.

annahenke Thanks for the heads up, this is on my TBR 3y
Tablet-and-Books @loveonlit It's a shame since it's a good idea but I thought it was just poorly executed. 🙁 3y

It took SO much effort not to bail on this one. Gah. I probably should have. I couldn't stand the protagonist, and everyone else is just as flat and uninteresting. The writing made me cringe. Stop comparing things to Godzilla already.

A story of Ancient Egyptian myth and legend, with a modern day twist, this book is exciting, entertaining, and a brilliant read. Thrilling, and with a wonderfully intricate plot from start to finish, 'Reawakened' has everything a young adult book could possibly need and more.

The protagonist is a spoiled, Mary Sue type named Lily who takes every opportunity to point out aspects of her "perfect" life. Worse is the lack of free will she is given before being forced to serve an Egyptian pharaoh lost in time. It reminded me too much of our society's rape culture. Unsettling.

While the main character can drive you somewhat crazy at the beginning, I actually grew to like this book. Mythology is not 100% accurate, but it still weaves a good story. Beware of the cheesiness at some points! This is a teen novel! Mostly enjoyed the bickering between Lily and Amon. 4 ⭐️'s
