A sibling rivalry.
A forbidden romance.
A spell that changes everything.
In Heliopolis secrets abound and passions ignite as chaos rises.
From the New York Times bestselling author of the Tiger’s Curse series and Reawakened comes a novella full of celestial marvel, passion, betrayal, and evil that will grow to reign over humanity forever.
Before Lily and Amon met, before the cosmos was in chaos and needed three brave brothers to fight off evil, there were four siblings who helped rule the earth.
Each sibling had a special gift. Osiris, the god of agriculture, helped mortals to grow and thrive in their natural environment. Isis, the goddess of creation, fostered health and wellness. Nephthys, the seer, was able to keep the balance between all living beings and the universe. But Seth, the youngest sibling, was left without any special powers. The Waters of Chaos, which granted each god’s talent, were running dry, and Seth was paying the price.
As time passed, however, Seth’s determination and willfulness resulted in a very special gift, one that should have granted him the ability to enact wondrous change. But Seth’s competitive childhood gave him a heart so cold and vacant that instead, his gift brought about great evil.
Seth was now the god of unmaking, the creator of disorder and destruction. And he was ready to seek his revenge, dominating all who got in his way.

"A sparkling new novel with a fully imagined world and mythos, and crackling romance! Egyptian mythology has never been this riveting!"—Aprilynne Pike, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Wings series, on Reawakened, book one in the series
Having not read the original trilogy, I was worried I might miss something. Instead, this novella has fueled my need to go and read that trilogy. This really is no surprise given how very much I enjoyed the Tiger's Curse series. I really do love the way this Author can take known things, whether that be places, cultures or myths, and twist them to fit her story, add her flare. The Egyptian mythology in this book was very appealing and engaging.
The various characters were three dimensional, not wooden, each flawed in some way which gave them depth. And the way their paths connect is interesting. The romance in the story is intense and, at times, heart breaking. It's difficult to say too much more without giving something away, it's a short story after all. I will say that Osiris and Isis will stick with me for a long time and I'm anxious to read the original trilogy to get to know more about their relationship.
If you are a fan of the Author or any of her works, you'll obviously love this as it has her trademark stamp on it. Romance, intrigue, suspense and a twist that only Colleen Houck can deliver.
