When she catches up with him, she finds more problems than solutions, especially after learning he’s not the same sweet boy she once knew.

Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book! I like mythology, but I’m most familiar with Greek and a little Norse. To get a taste of Egyptian mythology was really fascinating. The way it was weaved into the characters’ lives was interesting and added a really dire conflict.

As for the characters, I loved Emma’s character. She drowns herself in alcohol to deal with her curse and it takes its toll, but she still has a good heart. Calvin is such a brokenhearted man. He starts off as kind of a jackass, but you totally feel for him when you find out why.

In Conclusion:

If you’re looking for a short read that will have you wanting to say “hells yeah, ‘bout time!” one moment and have your heart squeezed in a vice so tight you think it’ll just stop in your chest the next, go read Curse of the Egyptian Goddess. It’s got an ending you’ll never see coming!
