E main plot point is them being reunited and in Amon s absence we are introduced to our love Triangle Hexagon Dodecahedron I can t even keep track to be honestThe ridiculous love geometry comes about from The Host elements of the book Let me start by saying I hate The Host The book did its best to stomp all over any creative science fiction notions while spreading a message that the protagonist s autonomy wasn t as important as that of an unwelcomed parasite But I digress sort of view spoilerRecreated introduces a similar parasitic mind timeshare plan when Anubis tells Lily she must go become a Sphinx by merging with a lion If that line made no sense to you good do not adjust your set you have a thinking mind So this action introduces Tia the lioness who happens to have a name and speak English and uickly grasp human ideas and basically wants to fuck every male character Ok so whatever Lily is slowing losing her individual soul as she merges with a fucking lion who can take total control over her body at any time but whatever lions are the spice of life Well near the end of the book we get introduced to another mind parasite in the form of an Irish fairy yes spelled like that who decides to oin the mind slumber party without invitationSo now Lily has three separate souls inside her body and I want you to make a note of something All the souls in Lily are female and there First to Fight just haaaappens to be three brothers that Lily s person is bonded with I wonder how this could play outSo basically Amon gets the spoiled white princess Asten gets to fuck a lion and Ahmose gets a fairy the size of his hand Between this and the epilogue story about a woman marrying a lion and unicorn I think Houck might really have a bestial fixation hide spoiler Updated August 18

his decision Tia is interesting She s direct and fierce but is learning the ways of human life Amon s brothers are back and are as awesome as I remember them though we get of their backgrounds here Asten OMG I wanted to hug him We get to meet of the gods and some were funny and cool while others were strict in the mudThe romance in the book was very much the same with confessions of love and heated kisses between Amon and Lily The devotion between them is what fans like me love to read about and dream to one day have However Lily has found a second love interest that sent me in a raging mood Though the romantic moments between the two were admitting hot but I was screaming at her What are you doing Then there s a twist to the romance that is almost confusing For me at leastOverall Recreated was great It is a great seuel to a captivating series I loved it It was well written has a great story with amazing characters and held my attention from start to finish I love how Colleen s books draws me into her worlds and wish I was in them Her attention to detail is incredible and I love the mythology I want the next book nowUpdated December 15 2015It has a cover Updated July 16 2015I want it I want it I want it After the first book in this series was such a letdown I was a bit reluctant to read this one and even considered donating it without reading it I m glad I finally convinced myself to read it because it was a vast improvement from the first and I actually enjoyed i updateLiterally dropping my rating because the I reflect on this book the I hate it Everytime I see it in my read shelf I get angry all over againIt s been a really long time since I have sat down and actually wrote a review I think the last one was written months ago when I tried to start up my blog again But there was ust so much that needed to be said about thisA few things1 This review is filled with much rage and uite a few spoilers2 As someone who absolutely adores the Tiger s Series this is very very hard for me to write3 Just because you love a series from an author does NOT mean you have to love everything they write Although Tiger s Curse is my favorite series of all time This book was terribleI think the reason I am raging so hard from this book is because I had such high expectations of having a completely new series surrounding Egyptian mythology which I love There was some mythology in this that did peak my interest and was some of my favorite partsReawakened was okay but kind of fell flat This one absolutely face planted I ll start with the things I liked1 The mythology Awesome stories as usual2 She clearly researched as much as she could which was nice3 The grandmother Nebu The tree and Ashleigh s attitude4 Some of the fights at the end were kind of coolThings I hated1 LilyTiaAshleigh This is ust creepy as all hell I really wish that this Sphinx thing would of happened the way it was supposed to cause having three consciousness in the same person is Queen Esther the Second Graders of Doom just weird and doesn t make any sense at all You could sometimes figure out which personality was in control at that time but itust made the whole book awkward Also Tia is a lioness Do you really think they speak poetically2 If people hated the love triangle in Tiger s Curse prepare yourself for a rectangle Oh but wait there s Lily is in love with Amon Tia is in love with Asten and Ashleigh is in love with Ahmose But they re all in the same body wutAnd I m pretty sure in the end they re all going to be magically separated from each other and get to live HEA3 This is essentially the Tiger s series but only written slightly different For exampleDr Hassan Mr KadamLily KelseyAmon RenAsten KishanAhmose KishanThen you trade Indian mythology for Egyptian Tigers for Lions and voilaRather than writing an entire new series by basically rewriting your first one continue the first one Then you don t end up with crap like thisIf I seem angry it s because I m seriously disappointed I really thought I was going to get another series that I adored A few other things that angered me Ever hear of a monogamous relationship As an fyi it usually it doesn t include making out with your boyfriends brother Who ever edited this first edition needs to go back through it Some parts were seriously hard to read because there was 3 4 people talking with 3 4 fonts to distinguish who it was and it failed terribly All the godscreatures falling in love with Lily Okay so it s explained off as being Amon s Heart Scarab But come on Does she really have to have all gods and men falling at her feetAll in all This sucked It pains me terribly to rate it so low But a two is the highest I ll goIf you loved this Awesome I m glad you got enjoyment out of this This is ust some things that really peeved me offTiger s curse is still and will probably always be one of my most love serie. M Yet she can feel Amon’s pain and she has been having dreams dreams of Amon continually suffering For before he departed Amon gave Lily something very special an item that connects them even though they are worlds apart Now Lily must use this object to free him and to free their realms from darkness and utter chaos She will do whatever it tak.

BREAK OUCHI m hoping Tia and Ashleigh get their own bodies and it can be a happy familyJUST GET ME BOOK THREE ALREADYSo with any luck that sums things up for you And you are welcome I did have to edit many swear words out of that rant SummaryI LOVED THIS I highly highly recommend reading the series and embracing its amazingness I can never believe how glorious Houck s stories are with her extensive research into certain areas I enjoyed the character development in this book and A Ranchers Vow (Sons of Silver Springs) (Sons of Silver Springs) (Harlequin Intrigue just about everything else that happened Due to previous aforementioned reasons I ve given this one a 455 stars lower than my 55 star rating for book one as I don t think it was uite as good but sheesh I still loved it ALSO check out the cover reveals for the novella Reignited and book 3 Reunited faints with excitementHappy reading This review appears on Happy Indulgence Check it out for reviewsIf you knew the end of theourney would have a great reward but it would be difficult along the way would you embark on that adventureIt s an easy decisions for Gryffindors and Ravenclaws but for the rest of you out there the risk probably doesn t outweigh the rewardLily in Recreated is definitely a Gryffindor she shows her courage time and time again and isn t afraid to thrust every part of her human self into saving her love Amon But over time her affections for him changes and she starts finding herself attracted to other men By the end of the book I felt really let down by everything that she had been through and the end result Not only because of where her heart lay but also because of the ambiguous open ending that was incredibly WhyWhy did I do this to myself How could I put myself through reading this book Yes I did like the first book Reawakened but then after some reflection I realized how much I didn t like it A year later when I thought I had forgotten about what bothered me in Reawakened I picked up this seuel And well I was wrong For me it was much worseI m going to say there will be spoilers in this review but that is to be on the safe side Sure this is the second book in the series but honestly I m not going to talk much about what happens Because that s how much I do not care My reviews have been incredibly salty as of late haven t they Sorry bout thatFirst off to describe this books as a whole I would say it s info dumping at it s worst Dialogue upon dialogue of info lectures whatever about Egyptian mythology And I love Egyptian mythology But honestly at that moment I would have picked up a nonfiction book on the topic That is how bored I was with RecreatedHere is one book that revolves around Egyptian culture and is overall Jazz Funeral just better in general Presenting Mara Daughter of the Nile You re welcomeNot only is there barely any action in thisust of the talking going places something happens info dumping but about every single guy falls for Lily And you know why that is the case Well let s say our heroine has in her possession this heart scarab that makes it so any male attracted to her unless they are in love with someone else Why What is the point of this Please explain We barely get any scenes with both her and Amon the actual love interest Instead we spend a good time seeing Horus head over heels in love with Lily trying to kiss her or seduce her or whatever I skimmed as best as I couldReally the only thing I actually liked about this book is the addition of Tia the lioness With her merging with Lily to become a sphinx it made the character interactions much interesting How would you like it if you were inhabiting another person s body trying not to take it overBut other than that Meh MEH Why did I even bother I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review uotes taken from ARC may or may not be in the published edition Not bad at all I liked the first one better This story offered a change in plot and characters you that became endearing in the first book while introducing some new ones into the mix Should be for an interesting finale August 8th I so don t even know how to live right now 2016 I CANT WAIT THAT LONG I NEED IT THAT ENDING I NEED TO KNOW WHAT GOING TO HAPPEN I M HONESTLY NOT GOING TO LAST TILL THIS TIME NEXT YEAR JUST KILL ME NOW AND PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERYEDIT 211215I JUST SAW THE COVER HOW LONG HAS THE COVER BEEN UP WITHOUT ME KNOWING OMG IT S SO PRETTY GOTTA ADMIT I LIKE THE BLUE OF REAWAKENED BETTER BUT THAT EYE IS SO GORGEOUS AND I WONDER WHAT THE TRIANGLES LEADING UP TO IT AND THE WINGS REPRESENT AHHHH I JUST CANT WAIT Chapter by chapter reviewrecap on my blog the Snark TheaterI meanwow is this a new low There are probably books I ve read that I hate than this but I ve rarely seen a book this consistently incompetently writtenRecreated continues on the derivative from Twilight trend that is Colleen Houck s bread and butter This is our New Moon with the primary love interest being away most of the book and our protagonist angsting about itNow you may be fooled into thinking that since Lily does go on a uest to rescue him that makes her a active character than Bella And you would be right to assume that because there s no way someone could write this story and write a less active character than Bella motherfucking SwanThis is where Colleen Houck s genius comes in And by that I mean this book also takes from another Meyer story Since there s only one other Meyer story out there you guessed it I m talking about The Host So whenever it s time for Lily to do stuff reallyshe now has the spirit of a lioness in her mind to take over for her Isn t that convenient Oh but don t worry Tiaret is still female she still needs a man to give her instructions most of the time But still as far as divorcing the protagonist and narrator from any kind of agency this is pretty much the ultimate versionIt gets worse later on where a third spirit of anIrish fairy because that belongs in an Egyptian themed book The Doctors Pregnancy Surprise joins in You may recall there are three pretty boys in this series Well each of Lily s new personalities is in love with one of them Instantaneous world shattering love with no development of why they like them beyond stuff like he has good arms actual thing that Ashleigh the fairy says about her pretty boyBut if that wasn t enough misogyny let s talk about this book s main villain Do you know Ammit the Devourer a faithful if monstrous servant of Ma at who eats the hearts of thoseudged unworthy of entering the paradise that is Aaru That s boring let s make her an evil slutty temptress whose power seems to revolve entirely about making men do stuff for her Now that s what I m talking aboutYeah there isn t much to salvage about this book The one good idea in there is the backstoryworld building infodump we get about halfway through which is an admittedly original take on the Egyptian cosmogony while not being too far from the source material as to make me cringe Unfortunately it has yet to come into playanywhere and also that very same infodump goes on to state that Seth wants to destroy the universe which kind of ruins the whole chapter to meJustsomebody please stop Colleen Houck from writing I m begging you Book uality 1 starBook Enjoyability 3 starsWell folks it s that time again Time to get on my tiny soapbox and yell into the void about how terrible this woman s content is while thousands of people enthusiastically read her books and get warped ideas about what other countries are like WheeeIf I seem a bit bitter this time around it s because I didn t enjoy this book nearly as much as her previous fair That s probably my own fault since I read a really good series with actual characters world building epic uests and conseuences immediately before this What was I thinking Anywho let s focus on Recreated I can sum it up pretty simple as follows The Host New Moon Colleen Houck formula RecreatedThe New Moon aspect is simply the fact that our main breeding pair wait can mummies breed forget I asked Our main couple are separated for the duration of the book and th. ?s about to embark on the ourney of a lifetime When Amon and Lily part tragically he transports himself to the Netherworld what mortals call hell Tormented by the loss of his one true love he’d rather suffer in agony during Lily’s mortal years than fulfill his duty to protect humanity Heartbroken Lily seeks refuge on her grandmother’s far.

455 starsInitial Thoughts Upon FinishingRIGHT NOW I AM SO INCREDIBLY NOT OKAY I need the next book I cannot function without it That was the cruelest cliff hanger of ever But omg this book this story THESE CHARACTERS Give me now please I loved this so much that I ust have not been able to put it down I can t wait for the next book to clear up the mess that everyone ends up in in this book because GOOD LORD Lily needs some help right now that s for sure nodsStraight Into the ActionThere is so much to talk about for this book I thoroughly enjoyed this as a seuel to Reawakened and it is definitely teasing for what is to come in book three I love how everything is this massive play up on a forbidden love This book literally picks up straight after the events of book one We re back in the character s head space and it really doesn t take long to get stuck into the classic Houck style adventure This is what I love about Houkc s writing Her stories are so addictive and you can be guaranteed a uniue and amazing readIf you haven t read Reawakened then stop reading hereI was really curious to see what would happen to Lily s character after the finish for book one For starters I was traumatised and concerned by Amon s little runaway and I When Valentines Collide just couldn t work out how Lily was going to take it Being back in her family situation those parents sheesh definitely had me nervous and I was worried that we d waved goodbye to some amazing characters But I really shouldn t have ever doubt Houck This was absolutely a fantastic seuel and everything I ever wanted from Houck This series is certainly shaping up to be uniue and amazing and packed to the bring full of drool worthy men Many apologies but if you haven t read THIS book then skip to the Summary or be spoiledI was a big fan of the events that went down in this book I loved that Lily made the decision to leave her parents and go to her grandma to become her own person I loved that it didn t take long for her to get sucked back into the Egyptian world and I loved the whole Tia business that went down and all the other complications on the way This truly was an addictive read Why had I ever thought hair had no purpose Obviously the purpose of leaving hair loose and long was for this to have a man run his hands through it and cradle your head as his kissed you Tia Character Development Level TenLily is fast becoming one of my favourite characters Iust really like her I feel like I relate with her well and I think she handles all the situations well I mean let s not even get me started on the Sphinx thing SO COOL I was so surprised and pleased with how she turns out in this story I m not going to lie for a little while I thought her cushy up bringing would spoil her Thank goodness it didn t I thought Houck s playing with the TiaLily thing was awesome I ve seen a few people say they didn t like this but oh my god I loved it I loved how it completely complicated things within the book but most of all I loved how the different perspectives within the same mind allowed us clearly to see some of the mental side effects on the characters In particular I m talking about the final scenes and the uniue angle that we get to see Lily s depression if you would call it that over the whole Amon situation I was really sad at the lack of presence and action that Amon s character had I think he brings so much to the story so I was infinitely pleased when his brothers showed up Speaking of The Three BrothersThis book would have been nothing if Ahmose and Astin hadn t showed up I literally whooped for His Temporary Cinderella joy when they did I think the story was doing okay but had great potential to start flagging without them My favourite thing about this series is the way that they dynamics between Lily and those two is so interesting And I adored I don t think I can express this enough how complicated things got with Tia falling for Astin Whilst I wanted to slap Lily for entertaining these thoughts I also thought it was uite funny how the lines between Tia and Lily blurred and this happened So I m totally all for this confusion and loved the extra element this broughtThe connection that they all shared however broke my heart When they re trying to retrieve Amon and they re all suffering oh Iust wanted to cry They re The Middle Ages (The Story of the World just the most perfect brothers EVER I wanted to spare a uick word about Ashleigh I can t actually decide if I like her character or not I think I do but I don t think she brought that much to the story It also started to feelust slightly cliche when clearly a thing between her and Ahmose was struck up I did feel like at this point we re Booties And The Beast just trying to create a match making service for the brothers I wish Ashleigh could have been her bright self but not in Lily s mind That being said the added complication of Lily really starting to lose control with the three of them in her head was awesome and I did get a little excited when I sussed out what was going on So yes mixed feelings there The GodsI loved the role the gods had to play in this book Considering this was essentially one big uest to get to Amon let along bring him back they had uite the big role to play I really enjoyed the settings for the gods dwellings that Houck conjured up for us AND I m super excited for the release of the novella Reignited which is the story of Osiris and Isis I am so excited I may collapse I thought it was uite funny how Amon s heart that he d given to Lily caused her so many problems with it attracting men It was definitely testing times when the gods were tricking her into loving them I did like this aspect and I thought it served its purpose well for showing the exact strength of Lily s power to remain faithful to Amon and I think she did uite well I also really loved the scene when Astin has his heart weighed And by loved I mean I was a mess of emotions It was the saddest thing ever and Iust wanted to hold him and say everything was going to be okay That poor poor man A clever and well done scene I d really like to see of the crossing over area where Ahmose and Astin guard that s for sure Does anyone else totally picture Astin as chill as SimbaThe After WorldThis place was spooky I ve no idea how much of this if any comes from Houck s research into the Egyptians ideas about hell but wow this was thorough and terrifying I loved all the different places and aspects to it and I thought it was clever to make people enter to try and claim their hearts back It had a very divinely dystopian feel to it you don t get to say that sentence very often If anyone could make it through here it s Astin and his sassI d love to see someone take this and make it into a movie because I think there are seriously some clever things to be done However there are some things I do not want to see done such as when some soul are forced to eat their own hearts etc Yuk Such cruelty And that ending Shall we talk about it I had to admit I had to read it a couple of times because I was a little confused by the whole thing and I still sort of am but am expecting things to be cleared up a little by book three I was SO happy when we got Dance and Cultural Diversity just that little one kiss between Amon and Lily at the very very end I also really loved that it took the support of both Tia and Ashleigh to help Lily out at this point I was very happy with Ashleigh s characters and I think the girls work really well togetherJust to spin off on a tangent here I love the trilogy of the girls I adore their friendship and think it s marvellous Aside from Sarah J Maas Houck is now the only other author for me who has created this epic troupe of super girl power Plus Tia is hilarious with her lack of understanding about politeness and need for people toust be straight forward Oh I laughed many a timeBut yes the ending I m so confused and such a mess and I ust need Lily and Amon to be okay I m desperate to see what happens next and I don t think I can deal with an Amon ness world for much longer Let s hope those pesky gods can sort something outActually as a delightfully spoiler y blast I wrote down a stream of thoughts at the end of the book which went a little something like thisOH DEAR GOD MY HEARTOkay that was crazy Like really crazyLily is back at home I assumeAmon Ahmose and Astin are back in the underworld being glorious as per usual I assumeAmon is now okay I DON T KNOW I M ASSUMINGLet s take a step backSo Lily escaped her parents because who even cares about those heartless robots she went to her Nanna sWHO I WANT TO SEE MORE OF Seriously this woman needs to be in the next book she was fabulousBut then Anubis is like guuurrrrl your BF has messed up everythingAnd thus an adventure into Hell basically to retrieve a dying AmonMuch heartbreakBecause AmonBut Lily has to become a sphinx which is UBER cool and thus Lily because Lily 20In other words she now has Tia too omg that name I m in loveI LOVED TIA SO MUCH She s so funny and straight forward about everythingThe whole one person but two minds was mind blowing Why haven t authors done thisIt was brilliant But the mind struggles my god AND THEN ASTIN AND AHMOSE RETURNAnd I celebrated because DAMN those boys are prettyI mean good additions to the. From Colleen Houck New York Times bestselling author of The Tiger’s Curse comes Recreated the second book in the epic Egyptian inspired Reawakened series in which a seventeen year old must literally go to hell to save the love of her life Lily Young thought traveling across the globe with a reawakened sun prince was a grand adventure Now she?.
