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.


Thank you Random House for sending me an arc of Recreated. This in no way affected my review.

Last year I fell in love with Reawakened and knew I needed Recreated to read. I have been waiting to share my thoughts with all of you closer to release since I finished reading the arc back in April. We start off this story with Lily and Amon and his brothers did not come into play for some time. I loved witnessing Lily's growth. 

Lily and Tia a lioness merge and become one to save Amon and his brothers. One will become more dominate and Lily must fight very hard for that to be her. Oh yes and that heart scarab Amon gave Lily will be his undoing and her ticket to saving him. 

While I love Amon I was definitely leaning more towards another brother towards the end. This book is slow at the beginning but builds the story to where it needs to be and then you have the action and swoon worthy brothers and banter in the second half. I chalk up any slow points to middle book syndrome. Still a fantastic read and I can not wait for this journey to continue in book 3!
