Description-

  • A New York Times Bestseller! 
     
    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, about a seventeen-year-old girl 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.

    And don't miss new adventures with Lily in the rest of the Reawakened series: Reawakened and Reunited!

    "Rick Riordan fans who are looking for another series will delight in this fantasy."—SLJ

    "Wonderfully written and…the heart-pounding adventures are topped only by the heart-melting romance."—The Deseret News

    Reprieve

     

     

    “Amon!” I jerked awake, my pulse racing as the nightmare slowly ebbed. I’d taken to keeping a night-light on near my bed ever since the horrors that took over my dreams still haunted my dark room when I woke. Some terrible creature had cornered him. It had screeched in a satisfied way, its putrid breath stinging my nose as its tongue darted out to lick the blood from a gash on Amon’s shoulder. It all felt so real.

     

    Shivering, I wrapped my arms around my body and slid from the bed as I headed to my favorite spot on the balcony overlooking Central Park. Once there, I rubbed my hand over the head of the falcon statue perched on the railing.

     

    The bird reminded me of Amon’s golden falcon form, and when the sun warmed it, the heat stored in the metal carving seemed to linger, even in the late hours of the evening when I paced my room unable to sleep. It soothed me when I touched it and I could picture Amon as I’d last left him and not as the bruised and pain-filled man he was in my dreams.

     

    He was lost to me. I knew that. I acknowledged that I should try to move on, maybe try to date someone else, but the memory of my Egyptian sun prince come to life was a hard one to beat. Amon wasn’t perfect, but he was pretty darn close. Even now I could easily picture him standing near me—his golden skin warmed by the sun, the glint in his hazel eyes, and that secretive smile hiding behind his defined and very kissable lips.

     

    Sighing, I leaned on the railing and looked out at the park. I was in love with a guy who was centuries old and currently moldering away in an elaborately decorated sarcophagus fashioned by Anubis himself. His spirit half, the half that was supposed to be in paradise while he waited for the next time he was needed, haunted my dreams.

     

    Either he was in grave trouble or something was seriously wrong with me since I’d returned from Egypt. Still, the creatures I saw in my dreams were much more horrifying than any I could have made up. I wasn’t that creative. Even worse than my suspicions that Amon was in danger was the problem that I couldn’t tell anyone about it. Nobody even knew he’d existed.

     

    Well, that wasn’t exactly true. Dr. Hassan knew, but he lived on the other side of the world. I’d written to him when I got home, and his elated response made me smile even though I’m sure he’d figured it out when he couldn’t find my body on the pyramid after Amon and his brothers had saved the world. I was more than a little proud to be a part of the whole thing, even though fooling Amon into siphoning off my energy had nearly killed me.

     

    It took a month to get a reply from Dr. Hassan, though I’d fanatically checked the PO box I’d leased for our secret correspondence every day. He’d told me not to worry, that Amon had the protection of the gods, that he’d hidden the brothers well, and that I should be proud of the sacrifices I’d made to keep the world safe.

     

    That was pretty much the extent of his letters. They got progressively shorter as time went on. It was as if he, too, wanted me to just forget everything that had happened and move on with my life. But how could I? Amon haunted my dreams. Not that I wasn’t happy to see him. I was. But the horrors he faced were enough to send any girl, even one who had seen the things I’d seen, running for the nearest mental institution.

     

    My parents were worried. My lack of...

    May 15, 2016
    The romance between an immortal Egyptian and a modern 17-year-old now ventures into the underworld.In series opener Reawakened (2015), Lily, a white, privileged high schooler, found her life and heart taken over by a reanimated Egyptian mummy, Amon. To save him, Lily must now travel to the mythical netherworld where Amon has hidden himself. It turns out not to be so easy, as she has first to become a sphinx. In order to do this she melds both mind and body with a lioness named Tia. Like legions of protagonists before her, Lily faces countless trials before actually reaching Amon, notably the Cosmic River, where cranky Cherty the ferryman resists carrying her because she's a living soul. Throughout the journey, Lily experiences dream communications with Amon, so she is fully aware that he is being hunted and tortured in the netherworld. Despite her determination to save Amon, Lily finds herself with a libidinous spilt personality, at least partly courtesy of Tia, as she keeps getting distracted by handsome gods and Amon's own brother (in a particularly lubricious interlude). The quest unfolds in Lily's frequently melodramatic voice. Overstuffed ad nauseam with tribulations, the journey is nevertheless anecdotally imaginative, with wonderfully awful creatures such as giant grubs and wasp-esque reapers, and the final battle with the demon Devourer is thrilling.An overlong ramble through Egyptian lore--and it ain't over yet. (Paranormal romance. 14-18)
