The epic Egyptian quest full of romance, adventure, and mythology that began in REAWAKENED continues in RECREATED!
If Lily thought traveling across the globe with a reawakened sun-prince was an adventure, she is now in for the journey of a lifetime. Amon has left his sacred duty to the gods and transported himself to the Netherworld, what we know as hell, to live out the rest of his years in agony. He is tormented by the loss of his love, Lily, and wishes to relinquish his obligation to the gods until they can reunite again.
Lily has sought refuge on her grandmother’s farm until she must attend the college of her parents’ choice, and it is there that she is visited by Anubis, the Egyptian god of mummification, who fills her in on Amon’s choice and that she is the only one who can save him.
What Lily doesn’t tell Anubis is that since she’s left Amon she has known something went wrong. Lily can feel Amon’s pain and she's been having dreams, dreams filled with Amon fighting awful beasts and crying out in agony. She will do whatever it takes to save him. For his life means more to her than anything in the world, which may not exist if she doesn’t bring him back home.
Colleen Houck’s first series, Tiger’s Curse, was a New York Times bestseller, a USA Today bestseller, a Publishers Weekly bestseller, and a Parents’ Choice Recommended Award Winner. The Tiger’s Curse series is also being made into a movie adapted by Julie Plec, creator of The Vampire Diaries, and directed by Shekhar Kapur, who directed the Academy Award–winning Elizabeth.
