Mr. Kadam-He loves nothing more than tea time and, in fact, drinks tea the British way every afternoon.

Dr. Hassan-He owns a fedora hat in every color.

Lily’s Grandfather-Lily’s grandpop is no longer living in the Reawakened series, but his presence is still felt. He and Nana may not have had a shotgun wedding.

Amon-In addition to Danishes, Amon also loves cherry pie, but he hates pumpkin.

Osiris-Created water lilies, the flower Lily was named after. Fun facts: The goddess Durga also loves flowers and gifted Kelsey with a wreath of them. Ren gives Kelsey tiger lilies since they are her favorite flower and remind her of him.

Faunus-One of the Silvanae, Faunus knows much more than people think. He plays his pan pipes in a certain melody that jogs his memory. It works with a special sort of magic and he can remember things, even when a certain goddess tries to erase them.

Murphy-The pilot friend of Mr. Kadam is a sweet natured and faithful friend who has seen much more than he can explain. My dachshund is named after him.

Cherty-The ferryman who takes Lily and company to the Netherworld is a brave but crusty old sailor. He asked for the job of ferryman when he was still alive. Only he and Amun-Ra know why.

Nebu-The unicorn returns in Reunited to help Lily fight in the battle of the cosmos against Seth. He has a fondness for pretty girls and grazing on dandelions.

Li-I’ve always loved martial arts and Li is someone who’d be really fun to hang out with. Don’t tell his grandmother, but he prefers pizza over her home cooking.

Bonus: Fanindra-She may be related to both dragons and phoenixes.

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.


After cupping her hand with his, he added, with an almost desperate hiss, “Such a thing is forbidden.”

“I thought we already talked about that aspect.”

“Yes, but . . . this is different. Think of the consequences.”

“And what are the consequences of a life lived without love?”

He gently removed her hand from his chest and pressed it between his own. “You can’t mean this, Isis. You don’t understand.”

“I understand loneliness and longing.” She brought her other wing around until they stood in the midst of them. “I understand now that it was always you.”
