Spotlight: Recreated by Colleen Houck


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’s about to embark on the journey 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 farm. 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 takes.


Hey guys! So Colleen Hock is releasing a new book called Recreated on August 2 this year and today I thought it would be cool if I introduced you to the characters that you will be meeting in the book. It will help you put a face to the names in the book and will hopefully get you as excited as I am for the release!

God’s and Goddesses You’ll Meet in Recreated


ANUBIS-Technically you’ve already met Anubis if you’ve read Recreated. Anubis is tall, dark, and handsome, a bit moody, and loves his faithful dog Abutiu. What’s not to like, ladies? Though in Egyptian mythology he’s often depicted with the head of a jackal, I decided that the animal heads of the gods were their token animal instead. In the case of Anubis, his animal is actually his pet. 


ISIS-This goddess is lovely with long, dark hair. She is taller than most mortal men and has shining wings that aid her in moving back and forth between the mortal world and Heliopolis, the home of the gods. Her feathers have healing properties and they are white tipped with gold. Her eyes swirl with color like nebulas and though she comes off a bit stern and hard, she is soft-hearted at the core. Her husband is Osiris.


OSIRIS-Osiris is the god of agriculture. He loves nothing more than plants and gardens. He first kissed Isis in a gazebo in his private garden. He tried to resist loving her since their relationship was forbidden but no one says no to Isis for long. Seth attempted to destroy him out of jealousy but Isis was able to bring him back to life.


NEPHTHYS-A powerful seer, Nephthys has the ability to read the secrets of the stars. When compared to her sister Isis, she seems small and quiet but Nephthys is wise and careful and beautiful in her own right. She agreed to marry Seth which shocked all the gods. There is more to her than meets the eye.


 AMUN-RA-The head of all the gods, Amun-Ra rules the cosmos from his palace in Heliopolis. He is fair to the point of inaction. When allowing his full power to shine through, no one can look at him because his skin is so bright. He was the first born of the gods and it is because of him that the others exist.


HORUS-Horus is the son of Isis and Osiris. He is handsome and a bit of a womanizer. He often comes across as spoiled. Since Seth seeks to kill him, he is under permanent exile in Amun-Ra’s palace. His token is the golden falcon that he has loaned to Amon. He resents the fact that Amon has his pet and he misses her terribly.


MA’AT-The Afterlife needs a judge and this is Ma’at’s calling. She has the power to read hearts and determine if one is worthy of the Afterlife or if they must be banished to the Netherworld. She is seen as stern and uncompromising and yet she carries a closely guarded secret—one that leaves her feeling vulnerable.


SETH-This god has the power to “UNMAKE” which means he can destroy anything he wishes, erasing it from the cosmos. His wife is Nephthys but he secretly loves her sister Isis. The goddess Isis is a powerful spell caster and Seth wants her at his side to aid him in his ambitions. Seth is imprisoned in an oubliette so his ability to wield his power is currently limited.


THE DEVOURER-Though technically not a god, the Devourer’s job is to eat the hearts in the Netherworld deemed truly wicked. She is beautiful and commands several monsters that exist there who serve her without question. The Devourer serves Seth and considers him her master. She has a powerful henchman who works as her bodyguard and protector.
