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.

When I was given the opportunity to read Colleen Houck's companion novel to a series I've been pining over for a while now seemed like a dream come true! Well, I can safely say now that I was not let down. In fact, my desire to read the Reawakened series is now stronger than ever!

With a rich history in mythology, this entire prequel was very easy to follow. There was an authenticity to every character, landscape and scene that thrust you into this fantastic world, but never once did it feel dated. Colleen had a way of weaving a story that made you feel genuinely connect to the characters. My personal favorite was Seth, and I feel that the reason behind this was the simple fact that I wanted to see him succeed. He's like that bad boy you want to turn into a good guy.....but sometimes not all those fantasy's come true. 

Now before I wrap my review up I have to say that the fact I received a Dream Cast to post with my review made me happier than when I drink my morning coffee! Not only did it allow all these characters to come to life even more than they already were, I somehow created more of an emotional connection with them.

Here's to a fantastic book, and wonderful author! Now I must get my hands on the rest of the series.
