Title: Reawakened
   Author: Colleen Houck
   Format: Hardcover
   Release Date: August 11th, 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.

My Stance:

     Reawakened was brought to my attention through, well Goodreads and their lovely explore function. I haven't read anything from Colleen Houck, and I've heard some decent reviews and whatnot, from some of her past works and I wanted to give her a chance. I have always been a fan of Greek and Egyptian mythology. While I don't know much about egyptian mythology, I have always been looking to learn and see what others think about their culture and lifestyle.

     What took me back though is the idea that you have an ancient Egyptian god that is thrust into modern world centuries older and more advanced than what he or she is used to. I like the idea and the concept, I just hope the follow through is good and manages to capitalize on the work that Houck has put into it. The plot seems so one dimensional though, I just hope there's a bit more involvement and twists that come with the book than what is being lead on. I hope.
