Waiting on Wednesday [#53]

I have a very exciting book to share with you today. You may be aware of my complete and utter addiction  to a certain author called Colleen Houck – WELL, when she revealed the cover for her final book and novella for her current series I nearly fell off my chair. So put your seat belts on kids and prepare to be amazed.

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the SpineIt’s a tremendously fun thing to be because you have an excuse to gallivant through the 2016 releases (and probably buy far too many books). It’s also fantastic fun to head over to the official page and check out the link up to what everyone else is waiting on!

This week I’m waiting on . . .


Reignited

by Colleen Houck

book #0.5 in the Reawakened series

Genre: Novella, Romance, Fantasy [Mythology – Egyptian]
Author: Colleen Houck
Pages: 80 {paperback}

 A sibling rivalry.
A forbidden romance.
A spell that changes everything.
In Heliopolis secrets abound and passions ignite as chaos rises.
From the  New York Times  bestselling author of the Tiger’s Curse series and Reawakened comes a novella full of celestial marvel, passion, betrayal, and evil that will grow to reign over humanity forever.
Before Lily and Amon met, before the cosmos was in chaos and needed three brave brothers to fight off evil, there were four siblings who helped rule the earth.
 
Each sibling had a special gift. Osiris, the god of agriculture, helped mortals to grow and thrive in their natural environment. Isis, the goddess of creation, fostered health and wellness. Nephthys, the seer, was able to keep the balance between all living beings and the universe. But Seth, the youngest sibling, was left without any special powers. The Waters of Chaos, which granted each god’s talent, were running dry, and Seth was paying the price. 
 As time passed, however, Seth’s determination and willfulness resulted in a very special gift, one that should have granted him the ability to enact wondrous change. But Seth’s competitive childhood gave him a heart so cold and vacant that instead, his gift brought about great evil. 
 
Seth was now the god of unmaking, the creator of disorder and destruction. And he was ready to seek his revenge, dominating all who got in his way.

RELEASE DATE: 21st February 2017

// PRE-ORDER //

Do I really need to explain why I need this in my life? Colleen Houck is my favourite author of EVER and this is the prequel novella to her fabulous Reawakened series. The whole series is based on Egyptian mythology and follows a cast of amazing characters. Go and check out book one and get yourself invested in this series! But be warned, there was one hell of a cliff hanger at the end of book two!

I can’t wait to read about the story of the troublesome gods that we’ve heard so much of. This will definitely be a book that I read AS SOON as it is released into the wild.
