So I’m just going to come and say it, this wasn’t Colleen’s best work. To be honest, I was kinda bored through most of it. The first 2/3 of the book was kinda like the never ending camping trip in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Lily and Ahmose had to must trek through the cosmic universe, through the land of the dead to battle mythical creatures to help the Egyptian Gods and wake the other other Sons of Egypt, Amon and Asten. All while having internal arguments with the two other people inhabiting Lily’s body, Tia and Ashleigh so they can altogether form a fourth person to defeat Seth. Yeah, there was a lot going on there. Maybe it would have been better if I cared more for Lily, Tia or Ashleigh. Maybe it was just the pacing of the book. It felt repetitive and throwing all these unnecessary tasks and battles in her way. All these life or death situations that you knew she was never really in danger since she is the heroine and we have another 300 pages to go. To be fair some of those run-ins turned out to be important to the finale but most of it could have been completed left out and it wouldn’t have effected the narrative. I’m glad that this series is now over and she can refocus on her better series, Tiger Saga, which the fifth book has been in the works for at least four years now. Bring me back Kelsey, Ren and Kishan ASAP.
