This story had me hooked from the beginning. I love Egyptology and fully appreciated its integration into the story. Cursed as kids; Calvin and Cleo live their lives apart from one another. Both tormented until they meet up again as adults, which only proves to be disastrous until they find a common goal--breaking the curse. I look forward to Ms. Rayns next writing endeavor.

Curse of the Egyptian Goddess is a contemporary paranormal romance novel which incorporates intricate mythology into a modern setting. The story's heroine, Cleo, is a flawed but fascinating woman who has the misfortune of being the target of an ancient curse, which is linked to the serpent necklace she wears about her throat. Because of the curse people involved with Cleo, those who touch her, die of strangulation. As a result, she carries the immense guilt of having caused the deaths of her entire family and she remains a menace to anyone who dares get too close to her. To make matters worse, she suffers from regular cuddle sessions with a giant invisible constrictor snake that attempts to squeeze the life out of her, leaving her covered in bruises. Cleo actively shuns human contact and drowns her misery in booze. The addict aspect of her personality is distasteful, although understandable, given the wretchedness of her existence.

Calvin was Cleo's childhood friend and the recipient of a different but complimentary necklace bearing the symbol of a cat. Unfortunately, Calvin starts out acting like a jerk to the extent that the reader struggles to find something likeable or sympathetic about him. Considering that his biggest complaint is being transformed into a cat, the guy's bad attitude is really out of proportion to the chip on his shoulder. (He gets to be a freaking tiger! How cool is that?) As a point in his favor, he does manage to redeem himself as the tale progresses and eventually becomes a hero worth rooting for.

I really liked the investigative mystery portion of the story. An exciting sense of suspense builds as Cleo and Calvin desperately search for a way to end their curses. A determined detective who is gunning for Cleo adds the right touch of external conflict.

Wow! Very interesting story! I like mythology stories, but don't think that I have ever read one based on Egyptian mythology.
I didn't know what was going to happen and how Emma was going to overcome her "curse". It kept me guessing.
I really enjoyed the characters, even the secondary ones.
The ending was AWESOME, even if it left me wanting! I hope she writes more with Emma (Cleo) and Calvin.

WOW what a surprise ending. Love this story. I sure hope you are writing more for these characters, i was waiting for the sparks to fly lol. Poor Calvin, LMAO. You guys really need to read this. It is about Emma being cursed at the age of 10 when her and Calvin found two golden necklaces in Egypt. Both of them seem to become cursed by the necklaces they wear, each with a different kind of affect on their life. Once together at the present time boy does he act pissed off and mean but then you learn why he acts the way he does and you start to feel sorry for their relationship. OMG the ending is still the best part.

This was such an easy fun read. I loved Emma (Cleo)she was a very different sort of main character. I felt for her an the situation she had gotten herself into. Never able to be close to another person, always afraid. Enter Calvin, her childhood crush, he was not what I expected at all. He had his own issues to deal with and he didn't need her to pile her own stuff on top.
I was really happy with how this one ended, sometimes when I read a book, I'm disappointed by how it's left. This one made perfect sense to me, and I felt satisfied wit it.

Lisa Rayns weaves a spellbinding tale of fantasy and lore in Curse of the Egyptian Goddess. A fun and fast paced story, it will draw the reader in from the first page. Prepare to believe in things beyond the seen world.

This was a fast read, but I loved it. I hope there are plans for more stories about Emma and Calvin. I think this was a really unique storyline and I am always interested in Egyptian history and stories.

This was a novella, so it was a rather quick read. While there were moments that I enjoyed, and I definitely liked Emma and Calvin's character, there were moments that I didn't connect with the story. I think I liked the idea of the story more than the story itself. I enjoyed Calvin and Emma's romance and situation; the ending changed everything for me. The romance was cut off at a pretty hot moment and there wasn't a satisfying resolution at the end.
I hated the ending and felt that it was just a way to end the story instead of a place that the author arrived at. I like all different types of ending, they don't have to be the kind where everything is happy, I only request that they come naturally; happy or sad. I think it would help if the story was fleshed out a little more.
