Reawakened by Colleen Houck Review

Reawakened (Reawakened, #1)
Reading Level: Young Adult
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Source: Conference
First book in The Reawakened series
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.

Review
I'm a huge fan of this author so I had way high expectations. This easily met my expectations. I thought it was incredibly creative and exciting. 

This tells the story of Lily. One day while visiting museums, she awakens a prince. Now that he's awake, she must help him find his brothers. The fate of the world rests in her hands. 

I really enjoyed Lily. I loved getting to see her grow as a person. I loved her strength and sense of adventure. I loved that she kept those boys in their place. Amok is a pretty complex character. I thought he was a great character but we didn't really get to see him on a deep level. He masked a lot of his feelings. I can't wait to see more of him and his brothers. 

This book has a very impressive storyline. It's action packed and exciting. It was packed with Egyptian facts and culture which I really loved. It was crazy unpredictable. I loved the saving the world good vs. bad vibe. I couldn't put this one down! I thought everything was very well done. I can't wait to continue this story!
