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.
In his desire to stay as close to Lily as possible, Amon has turned his back on the afterlife. Instead he wanders somewhere between life and death in the dangerous netherworld.
Now only able to speak to Lily in her dreams, their connection grows stronger still. If they could only find a way to be together once again.
The worst part about wandering the netherworld wasn’t the endless barrage of monsters or dangers that threatened a second and permanent death. It wasn’t the separation from his brothers, his constant companions for thousands of years. It wasn’t even the loss of purpose he felt, the absence of self-assurance he’d always possessed, or the knowledge that he had a place in the cosmos, one he was if not satisfied with, then one he accepted.
Lily hasn’t been the same since Amon’s death. She feels somehow changed forever and her life is devoid of all colour without him.
She seeks refuge in rural Iowa somehow believing that it might settle her soul. But when Anubis appears and tells her that only she can save Amon from a fate far worse than death, she knows that she’s in for a fight like no other.
She must traverse Lakes of Fire and Mires of Despair to find Amon. Lead by his brothers, mystical creatures and Amon’s heart scarab, she embarks on journey of transformation where the very world lies in the balance.
But Amon’s heart called to me. There was no one else who could do it. Not Anubis. Not Asten or Ahmose, and not Dr. Hassan. I, Lilliana Young, an average mortal girl, would end up being either the hero or the tragic victim— the first in a long line of casualties in the war between good and evil, if I couldn’t prevent the unthinkable from happening.
Recreated is another unexpected gem from Colleen Houck! After the whirlwind of Reawakened, I wasn’t quite sure of where she would take her readers next and it’s so much more than I ever imagined.
She masterfully crafts a mystical world where a young girl finds the incredible strength within herself to save the boy that she loves – regardless of the consequences.
Watching Lily transform from just a privileged New York City teenager to a fierce warrior is as terrifying as it is thrilling. This is her story. The story of her love, the story of her heart and the story of her recreation – and it will leave you longing for more…
