At first, teenager Annabeth Prescott thinks she’s found quite a deal when she talks down the price of an ankh pendant she discovers at a flea market. She soon wonders if the bauble is more than she’s bargained for when she faints and glimpses images from a past life in ancient Egypt.
The discovery coincides with another new find: Gabriel, a handsome young man who takes an interest in her. When she meets his twin brother C. J. at a Halloween party, she realizes they look exactly like two boys who figure prominently into her memories.
Does C. J. share the heroic qualities held by his past incarnation Sethe, her bodyguard when she was Princess Ana? Does Gabriel possess the same evil powers he wielded as Kha, the black sorcerer who sought her affection?
Love meets the supernatural in this gripping young adult paranormal romance. Readers with an interest in reincarnation, as well as ancient Egypt, will be drawn to its mystical mixture of history and hesitation as Annabeth sways between the two brothers.
Will her reincarnated soulmate win out? Or will Kha finally find the way to her heart?
I hope you’re ready,” C. J. says, and I can hear how excited he is
about the big reveal.
He undoes the blindfold that he tied around my head several
moments before, and I look up to find a building that’s so grandiose—
with white pillars and cut stone—it could well be an ancient Egyptian
monument. A nearby sign states that this is the Boston Museum of Fine
Art. Apparently, no ho-hum location in Old Orchard Beach or Portland
would do. When C. J. plans a first date, it’s out of state.
“So, why’d you bring me here?” I ask, though it’s obvious that the
reason has something to do with our mutual passion.
We rush through the museum, because C. J. sees no point in dillydallying
elsewhere, and finally arrive at the antiquities wing a little out
I’d pinch myself if it wouldn’t hurt. This place is all anyone with an ancient
Egypt obsession could hope for—and then some. Seeing this array of
artwork brought together…Well, the last time I was witness to a collection this
awe-inspiring, this mind-blowingly beautiful, was in ancient Egypt itself.
REVIEW COMING SOON!!! 🙂
