Review: Reignited by Colleen Houck

27833501Reignited by Colleen Houck

A sibling rivalry.
A forbidden romance.
A spell that changes everything.

In Heliopolis, secrets abound and passions ignite as chaos rises.

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Tiger’s Curse series and Reawakened comes a novella full of celestial marvel, passion, betrayal, and evil that will grow to reign over humanity forever.


Before Lily and Amon met, before the cosmos was in chaos and needed three brave brothers to fight off evil, there were four siblings who helped rule the earth.

Each sibling had a special gift. Osiris, the god of agriculture, helped mortals to grow and thrive in their natural environment. Isis, the goddess of creation, fostered health and wellness. Nephthys, the seer, was able to keep the balance between all living beings and the universe. But Seth, the youngest sibling, was left without any special powers. The Waters of Chaos, which granted each god’s talent, were running dry, and Seth was paying the price. 

As time passed, however, Seth’s determination and willfulness resulted in a very special gift, one that should have granted him the ability to enact wondrous change. But Seth’s competitive childhood gave him a heart so cold and vacant that instead, his gift brought about great evil. 

Seth was now the god of unmaking, the creator of disorder and destruction. And he was ready to seek his revenge, dominating all who got in his way.

Review:
I was thrilled with the opportunity to read Reignited because it features Egyptian mythology, and although I did really like the mythological aspects of the story, I wasn't hooked on this short story. I didn't really connect with any of the characters, and I felt the story was incredibly slow-paced, and it never really picked up.

I did like the backstory of how the villain of the Reawakened trilogy came to be, but other than that the story it's exciting and I found that outside of Seth, none of the characters were interesting, and he's only interesting because you get to see him completely unravel throughout this story.


I definitely am planning on picking up the trilogy, but I'm hoping that those books are much more fast-paced, and hold my attention.
