Description from Goodreads

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

Why I'm excited

I love anything that has to do with Ancient Egypt, so how could I not be excited about this book? A godlike Egyptian prince, exciting adventure, star-crossed love, ancient evil...what more could you possibly ask for in a book? 

August is pretty far away, but I guess I can wait...

Also, it makes me laugh that the evil, shape-shifting god is named Seth. That's my son's name and since he's three, he definitely has his evil, shape-shifting moments, but he spends most of his time just being cute!

What book are you waiting to read?
