Synopsis: 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.
OUR THOUGHTS: First off, how much does this cover INSTANTLY remind you of the book the witches in the movie Hocus Pocus use?! We TOTES latched onto this book as soon as we saw the cover because it reminded us of Winifred's precious book of dark spells *wink*. Secondly, this book is set in Egyptian folklore which makes us all grabby hands and gimme gimme RIGHT NOW! We've been wanting to read different myths and folklore from different cultures so we're excited to find a book that has that wrapped in a plot that piques our interests. Thirdly, an Egyptian prince with godlike powers, HEX YEAH! We are so in with Lily stalking . . . we mean helping him in his quest to save mankind *hehe*. Fourthly, there's a shape-shifting god who wants to commit all kinds of evil which sounds totally awesome! Fifthly, I mean come on, do we really have to give you anymore reasons to add this to your TBR-MUST-HAVE pile?? *grins*
