The Basics: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 do I want to read it?Wow. To think that by the time this comes out i'm going to be in my senior year of high school, is really crazy. Anyway, I've been reading a lot of contemporary and I miss fantasy YA. I miss reading about fantastical crazy things that con't happen in this world. Plus I love this author, I love the Tiger's Curse series, it's amazing. This sounds vaguely like a remake of the Tiger's curse because of the whole finding someone who needs help and going across the globe on a mission. But I hope Houck can pull it off and make this book stand out from her other books.
