Recreated Review...

From Colleen Houck, New York Times bestselling author of The Tiger’s Curse, comes Recreated, the second book in the epic Egyptian-inspired Reawakened series, in which a seventeen-year-old must literally go to hell to save the love of her life. 

Lily Young thought traveling across the globe with a reawakened sun prince was a grand adventure. Now she’s about to embark on the journey of a lifetime. 

When Amon and Lily part tragically, he transports himself to the Netherworld—what mortals call hell. Tormented by the loss of his one true love, he’d rather suffer in agony during Lily’s mortal years than fulfill his duty to protect humanity. 

Heartbroken, Lily seeks refuge on her grandmother’s farm. Yet she can feel Amon’s pain, and she has been having dreams—dreams of Amon continually suffering. 

For before he departed, Amon gave Lily something very special, an item that connects them even though they are worlds apart. Now Lily must use this object to free him, and to free their realms from darkness and utter chaos. She will do whatever it takes.



While this was a good book it wasn't great.  I truly loved the Tiger's Curse Saga and the mythology involved in it.  However with this series I find it very, very hard to follow and get through.  I almost gave up on this book but I kept going.

I think my biggest struggle with this book is the fact that all of the "brothers" names start with an A.  It can be very confusing trying to figure out who is talking or dreaming about who.  Then there is the fact that Lily is now two people (kind of).  This makes for a very confusing story.  I did like the general story line and I do plan to read the last book but it may take a short break from them before moving on.

Needless to say, despite the confusion, the book was still good.  I look forward to seeing how Lily and Amon's story ends and if the brothers are finally freed from the life they currently lead.  I even loved the mythology included in the book.  The book just needed to move a little faster.
