The characters are well written especially the main who is (thankfully) different than typically ones as long as you're not taking the the predictable 'falling for that perfect guy' thing into account. Her mysterious dreams were a great lead up full of mystery and intrigue and wondering if it's a monster that will bring ill will etc. and then...what actually happens is so dull. It's a great lead up filled with interesting characters, a cute peculiar friendship/romance, and then when you get to the climax and the character has to engage in it you're left thinking 'that's it..?'. But it's an enjoyable story nevertheless. Though the incorporation of the Egyptian mythology was nicely done, a better climax/problem would've been great. Oh well.

3 stars

A great twist on Egyptian mythology. I liked the concept but the story was very predictable.

This book is kind of hilarious in it's own way. The set up is so perfectly templated that you can basically predict the ending one or two chapters in - and then the fun is watching everything happen like you think it's going to. As usual, Kiersten writes some engaging characters, and that's the only thing saving this story from complete mediocrity.

A unique take on the modern mythology take. A quick, breezy read with a fast plot that you won't want to put down. Funny, romantic and realistic. Loved it.

For the record, there is also an ebook edition.
