In the beginning I though she was a bit of a knucklehead (The best way I can think of describing her actions). She made some really ridiculous decisions that make you question her intelligence but it does actually fit with her age and situation. As well as her - not quite average - background. The last half of the book was beyond awesome! SO cool and the author definitely did their research with all of the things related to Egypt. (Egypt fanatic over here)
I TOTALLY recommend this book based on the knowledge, the intensity, suspense, action, and brilliance! I will definitely be looking more into this author and her books - count on it!
*Pouts in corner*
I'd love for this to have a sequel, which she said she'd consider doing if this book sold enough copies, so here's my plug: BUY THIS BOOK! Because I need me some more Dane. It's only three bucks, and I'm sure you could do without your morning latte for one day. Just sayin'.
I loved seeing each "side" to the conflict and how they viewed their world. Of course, there was one side I agreed with more, so it'd be interesting to see where the author would take things. Because there's a lot of history in this book, I felt like there was more "info dump" and explanation than some of her other books. As I don't know a lot about Egyptians, it was necessary for me though. And some of the ... let's say "vampire-esque" ... parts of the book seemed a little overdone (in the genre as a whole). But as someone who doesn't always like Paranormal novels, this one actually felt fresh for me.
Of course, where this author always shines is in making the reader feel like the stakes always escalate. There's never really a good place to put down the book. And as always, the romance angle in her books are always swoon worthy.

Review: Okay. I admit, I had a really hard time deciding how to rate this. It was so fun. So Janette Rallison. So well written, witty, and a good book. So why only a 3+ instead of like a 4+ or 5 like it probably deserves? I had a serious, serious problem with one of the love interests for Aislynn. Going into my issues would produce major spoilers, so I won't. I just . . . disagreed. We'll leave it at that.
But, beyond that, it's a good book. It has some fun action and some unique plot twists and turns. It was well written and well thought out. I enjoyed it and to be honest, read it really quickly. I love Aislynn, and most of the characters (hahahaha). They were each pretty solid.
Sex - 1 (Some somewhat passionate kissing and hickies. Ha!)
Language - 0
Violence - 2 (It's an action book but nothing gory or graphic.)
Overall Rating - PG-12, just for themes, etc.
I'm 30 years old but would easily share this with any teenager as well as my mom. This is one of those books that I sneak my kindle in the bathroom with me just to get a few extra minutes of reading time. It was that good.
And if the author is reading this, yes, I also require a sequel :)
This story has enough of the well known supernatural elements in it that it seems familiar, yet the author's take on them is fresh and the new perspectives are compelling. I was afraid that I had stumbled on a sappy romance novel masquerading as a fantasy story, but thankfully that wasn't the case. The romantic elements of the story are well done and in the end are needed and fill their role nicely.
I'm looking forward to more from this author!
If you're into the dark YA books that are popular right now, this might not be the book for you. When people died in horrific ways, we learn about it, even stand on the fringes, but Rallison did not give the gory details--something I'm grateful for. I've been a Rallison fan for years, and this is book was no exception. In fact, it's already on of my favorites of her books.
