BLOG TOUR: ARC Review--Reunited by Colleen Houck + CONTEST!

After surviving her otherworldly adventure, Lily wakes up on her nana’s farm having forgotten everything. Her sun prince, her travels to Egypt, and her journey to the Afterlife are all distant memories.

But Lily is not the girl she once was. Her body is now part human, part lion, and part fairy. And if that isn’t bad enough, she must now harness this power of three and become Wasret: a goddess destined to defeat the evil god Seth once and for all.

With the help of her old friend Dr. Hassan, Lily departs on her final voyage through the cosmos and across the plains of Egypt. On the journey, she will transform into the being she is destined to become.

Reunited is the heart-pounding conclusion to the Reawakened series.

It is time for Lily to find her sunset.

I received this ARC in a fair trade with a fellow blogger. This review is completely voluntary and honest. I was not compensated for this review.

Reunited is the final book in Colleen Houck’s Reawakened series! With every book I read by Colleen, I am constantly amazed by how wonderful the world and writing is! As I might have mentioned before, I don’t know my mythology outside Greek, but I always enjoy learning more through Colleen’s books!

We rejoin Lily as she awakes on her grandmother’s farm. Only thing is, Lily has no memory of the past few weeks. It was actually rather nice too, since I couldn’t remember everything that happened in Recreated either! Lol! So Lily has to get caught up on all that’s happened and what needs to happen. Honestly, Colleen couldn’t have done this better! My little reader heart and mind were so thrilled with this because. Seriously, I can never remember what happened in the previous book a year later! I’m in serious trouble with other series that I am in the middle of!

Dr. Haasan comes back to Lily to tell her all the details, that she basically needs to wake the brothers once again, that she will need to become Warset, and with the help of the brothers they will need to defeat Seth. No problem really, just saving the world like it ain’t no thing! Hee hee. As you can imagine, it’s not as easy as all that.

There are many tasks ahead of Lily on her journey. She does eventually get her memory back and soon finds herself working with Ahmose, one of Amon’s brothers, as they work to find Amon and Asten’s bodies so that they can be raised! Colleen’s books are always filed with a great journey filled with perils and other dangers! There’s never a dull moment!

This book also expands on what is likely the most complicated love confliction ever! As you might recall, Lily possesses the souls of a lioness named Tia and a fairy named Ashleigh. Tia has feelings for Asten. Soon Ashleigh develops feelings for Ahmose. And then of course, Lily loves Amon. So what happens when we have three souls in one body loving three different guys? A complicated mess! But ironically, the brothers handle this all so well! It’s odd, but I can live with it I guess! I’m not touching on its outcome either, because, you know, spoilers!

This book wasn’t without its feels either! There was a lot of unexpected occurrences that really tugged at my heartstrings, and yet it always felt right. It’s a terrible feeling almost, to be accepting of sadness because you know it was the right course, because omg, it was heartrending! Not giving exact details, but we can say this was one emotional read and I honestly didn’t know how things would turn out in the end.

Reunited was a most wonderful read! It was rich with its mythology and culture that I’ve pretty much come to expect with a Colleen Houck book! She’s never let me down before! It was filled with action and so many wonderful character building moments! I always love reading Colleen’s books because they are truly an adventure just waiting to happen! This is a series not to be missed or passed by!
