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.
New Creatures You’ll See in Recreated
- Reapers-the reapers in the Netherworld are based on the concept of the Grim Reapers but instead of a skeleton or a ghoul they are insects. I modeled them after a sort of white faced hornet that looked a bit like skeletons.
- Hellhounds-these are demon wolves that can shift into smoke. They serve the Devourer and do her bidding unconditionally.
- White Hippos-These are the guardians to the Afterlife. If they deem a traveler unworthy, they eat them.
- Fire Scorpions-These are mindless creatures who are easily manipulated. They serve the Devourer in the Netherworld but they’d just as easily turn on her if offered the proper incentive.
- Serin-Serin are a kind of evil mermaid. They live in the Cosmic River and cause anyone traveling the waters great trouble. They can usually be distracted with gold coins thrown into the water.
