Meet Reunited!

From Colleen Houck, New York Times bestselling author of The Tiger’s Curse, comes the third and final book in the Reawakened series in which Lily will train to defeat evil once and for all and find a way to her everlasting love.  

   After surviving her otherworldly adventure, Lily wakes up on her nana’s farm having forgotten everything. Her sun prince, her travels to Egypt, and her journey to the Afterlife are all distant memories.


   But Lily is not the girl she once was. Her body is now part human, part lion, and part fairy. And if that isn’t bad enough, she must harness this power of three and become Wasret: a goddess destined to defeat the evil god Seth once and for all. 


   With the help of her old friend Dr. Hassan, Lily departs on her final voyage through the cosmos and across the plains of Egypt. On the journey, she will transform into the being she is destined to become. 
   Reunited is the heart-pounding conclusion to the Reawakened series. It is time for Lily to find her sunset.

~ Excerpt ~

 

Without waiting for Dr. Hassan to remove the lid, I shifted over to the third sarcophagus. Gripping the Feather of Justice in my hand, I locked my mind with Ashleigh and Tia and with the voice of a cyclone, cried, “Pathfinder, with the Feather of Justice I summon your heart and command you. Return to your mortal form!”

The feather gleamed as if lit from within and the light moved down my arm. It filled my body until the glow became so bright that Nana and Hassan had to shield their eyes. A gust of wind whipped my hair straight up and Hassan dove for the hidden cupboard, pulling out the canopic jars and opening them in quick succession.

Silver particles burst from the top of each jar like four moonbeams. They coalesced into balls of light except for one that became a long-necked bird. One by one, they sunk into the still closed sarcophagus and disappeared.

When my power dimmed, Tia, Ashleigh, and I broke apart. Hassan, Nana, and I all stood there looking at each other wondering what to do next.

Then we heard a boom and I leapt back, drawing my knives from the harness. Another boom sounded and Hassan ran to Nana holding her against him as she gasped in fear. Dust rained down from overhead and I narrowed my eyes and cocked my ears listening for the source of the threat.

When the third boom came, the lid of the sarcophagus exploded upward like a bomb had gone off beneath it. I twirled my knives, shifting my weight to attack, when a wrapped figure suddenly sat up.

I swallowed as the mummy tore the wrappings from its face and arms. Then it turned to look at me. Taking a moment to clear its throat. Its voice was dry and raspy. “Do you think I could get a little help, Lily?” the mummy asked.

I like the cover, it goes well with the others in the series and it sounds like an interesting novel.

The cover is more violet than purple, I'd say. The Egyptian them intrigues!

Together, the cover and synopsis make me want to add this to my classroom bookshelf. My students love mythology, and would be drawn to the eye. They'd love reading about this fantasy (which ties in well with the ancient history in the social studies curriculum.)

I've not read any books in this series but I've heard such amazing things! And I love how all the covers are consistent. It's been on my TBR for a while and I have no idea how I keep skipping over it but that needs to stop! It really sounds like this series has everything I look for in a mythological fantasy and I simply can't believe I've put it off this long.
