Meet Reunited!

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 now 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.

From Colleen Houck, New York Times bestselling author of The Tiger’s Curse, comes Recreated, the second book in the epic Egyptian-inspired Reawakened series, in which a seventeen-year-old must literally go to hell to save the love of her life. 


Lily Young thought traveling across the globe with a reawakened sun prince was a grand adventure. Now she’s about to embark on the journey of a lifetime. 


When Amon and Lily part tragically, he transports himself to the Netherworld—what mortals call hell. Tormented by the loss of his one true love, he’d rather suffer in agony during Lily’s mortal years than fulfill his duty to protect humanity. 


Heartbroken, Lily seeks refuge on her grandmother’s farm. Yet she can feel Amon’s pain, and she has been having dreams—dreams of Amon continually suffering. 


For before he departed, Amon gave Lily something very special, an item that connects them even though they are worlds apart. Now Lily must use this object to free him, and to free their realms from darkness and utter chaos. She will do whatever it takes.

YABC:   What gave you the inspiration to write this book?

I was inspired by my love for the Mummy movies. The mythology of Egypt has always fascinated me.

 

YABC:   Who is your favorite character in the book?

Tia. I loved getting into the head of a lioness.

 

 

YABC:    Which came first, the title or the novel?

The novel, definitely. We actually changed the title of the book. It was originally called The Eye of Vengeance and then it switched to Realigned and finally, Reunited.

 

 

YABC:   What scene in the book are you most proud of, and why?

I really like the spider scene and the web tapestry. I had really tap into my creativity to alter the original African myth.

 

 

YABC:   Thinking way back to the beginning, what’s the most important thing you've learned as a writer from then to now?

To trust myself and feel empowered enough to know when to keep something and when to let it go. I struggled with that a lot in the beginning. Now I can look back when I feel frustrated and give myself a pep talk.

 

 

 

YABC:   What do you like most about the cover of the book?

The color! Everyone is responding the pink really well. You don’t see a lot of pink YA books but this one is so pretty.

 

 

YABC:    What new release book are you looking most forward to in 2017-2018?

I have a slew of them. I’m really eager to begin Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman book and also Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones.

 

 

YABC:   What was your favorite book in 2016-2017?

I have a lot of favorites. So far I’ve really loved The Queen of Renthia series by Sarah Beth Durst, The Ravenspire series by C. J. Redwine, and Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon.

 

 

YABC:   What’s up next for you?

Next up is editing my top-secret project and then pitching some new ideas to my editor and seeing what direction she’d like to go.

 

 

YABC:   Is there anything that you would like to add?

More time in the year so I can take a real vacation.

 

 

YABC:   Which was the most difficult or emotional scene to narrate?

The ending was difficult. Endings always are for me. They’re not just emotional for the characters but for me to come to the end of the time I spend with them.

 

 

YABC:   Which character gave you the most trouble when writing your latest book?

An, as yet, nameless goddess. She was a toughie since she was very unhuman in the way she thought and acted.

 

 

YABC:   Which part of the writing process do you enjoy more: Drafting or Revising?

Drafting. I loathe revising.

 

 

YABC:   What would you say is your superpower?

Writing myself out of corners.

 

 

YABC:   Is there an organization or cause that is close to your heart?

I can’t stand to see animals in trouble so anything about saving animals is where I gravitate.
