Audible Editor Reviews

"The author weaves her story out of Egyptian lore, cinematic magic, selfless love, and...is clever enough to remain surprising even to the last sentence." (Kirkus Reviews)

Publisher's Summary

The first book in a new multibook series from New York Times best-selling author Colleen Houck about a teenage girl entangled in an epic Egyptian quest full of romance, adventure, and mythology!

When 17-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 1,000 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. 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 best-selling 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.

What the Critics Say

"In this series opener, Houck...introduces a fantasy teeming with Egyptian characters and mythological stories come to life.... Houck's moving depiction of the love between Lily and Amon is memorable." (Publisher's Weekly)

"Littered with Egyptian mythology and snappy dialogue, this romantic adventure is a good choice for graduates of Rick Riordan or fans of Houck's Tiger's Curse series." (Booklist)

    "I so wanted to like this book."

    I felt like I was rereading g 'Tiger's Curse" (which I loved, but not enough to read it again) only set in Egypt. I didn't like the main characters, and that makes or breaks a story for me.

    "Incredible plot, unique and captivating."

    Very enjoyable story line with characters that tantalize your imagination. I flew through this book, picking it up every spare moment I had till it was over and now I'm craving more. Thankfully for me the next one comes out in a few days. The narration is totally entertaining as well. All around, this is a great book and worth every second.

    "Romance story masquerading as an adventure story"
    What disappointed you about Reawakened?

    Think of this book as an Egyptian version of Twilight. Like Bella, Lillie gushes about how hot the Egyptian god is, and discusses her feeling at length. Hardly any action during the first half. If you liked Twilight, this may be for you. If you like adventure, look elsewhere.

    "Amazing"

    I wish the reader did better at betraying each character as the reader for tigers curse did.
    The book was amazing. Can't wait till next one.

    "too sappy"

    overall I enjoyed the book but I felt that there's too much love and it distracted from the story. Love the Egyptian history and delving into the gods background

    Story
    "Almost There"
    Where does Reawakened rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would place "Reawakened" somewhere towards the middle. I'm glad I bought the audiobook, and I might relisten to it before the next of the series comes out, but it wasn't a narration or plot I was completely enamored with.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Reawakened?

    I enjoyed when Lily finally understands what Amon is so the plot could continue forwards. Don't get me wrong, I love the tiny miscommunications between Lily and Amon, but it got to a point where myself as the reader knew more than Lily and I was practically shouting at her in my car "He's an immortal mummy! It says so in the synopsis! Let's move on!"


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I adore all the feasting scenes. It seems that this is when they have time to communicate and understand each other.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nothing so extreme. I became concerned at the end, believing that this was only a one book deal until I realized, nope, there will be more.


    Any additional comments?

    Unfortunately, I compared this novel's reading to Colleen Houk's "Tiger's Curse" series. Annika Boris spoiled me with deep, masculine voices and beautiful accents. Though Phoebe Strole did fine with her narration, no weird quirks or stumbles, she missed the mark with masculine and accents. Normally, I would be alright with a missed accent here or there, but seeing as this is a novel full of 'em, it was like a chunk of magic was missing and left Amon was a severe monotone. Again, Strole did alright, but it would be an improvement if she were to attempt an accent in book 2.

    Story
    "Sadly, disappointing"
    What would have made Reawakened better?

    More likable main characters. Lily was a really annoying main character to me. I remember being frustrated with the main character in her other series from time to time, but I just didn't like the main character in this series. I found her unrelateable and pushy with her feelings. Amon wasn't really the greatest either, he was just sort of okay. I liked Amon's "brothers" a lot better than him.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Colleen Houck again?

    Yes, I read/listened to the "Tiger's Curse" series and was a big fan, so I'd definitely try more that she comes out with, just not any more in this series.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I think the narrator was fine, I didn't love her, but I didn't dislike her either.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment is probably my biggest reaction, but I have to say annoyance as well. I was really annoyed with Lilly most of the time.


    Any additional comments?

    If you were excited about the book because you're a fan of the "Tiger's Curse" series, don't be. It's not nearly as good, but I say that as thirty-something reading a young adult book. I found this book pretty immature, so maybe those actually in the young adult audience would like it. I couldn't wait for it to get over!
