After surviving her otherworldly adventure, Lily wakes up on her nana’s farm having forgotten everything. Her sun prince, her travels to Egypt, and her journey to the Afterlife are all distant memories.

But Lily is not the girl she once was. Her body is now part human, part lion, and part fairy. And if that isn’t bad enough, she must now harness this power of three and become Wasret: a goddess destined to defeat the evil god Seth once and for all.

With the help of her old friend Dr. Hassan, Lily departs on her final voyage through the cosmos and across the plains of Egypt. On the journey, she will transform into the being she is destined to become.

It is time for Lily to find her sunset.

OMG I have so many mixed feelings with this book. I swear that I don't know what to say about it. I seriously have a love/hate relationship with this author's stories, but I always end up liking them. This story was, sadly, the same as her previous series. Meaning that made me want to give up on it because it had a horrible path. Those thoughts aside, I continue reading it and let me tell you, it was not as bad as I thought it was going to end.

If I was lost with the mythology before, I totally gave up in knowhing who was what and what was who at this book. I didn't care of the background I just wanted the end. I hated the whole Tia, Ashleigh and Lily together in just one body thing. I hated the whole thing about one sibling being in love with one of girls inside Lily. It was too much and I got real tired of it. This was the bad.

The good parts were GOOD. The whole book was pure action. Not one second was the book dull and nothing "fun" happening. Everything was quick. One chapter we were battleting snakes and the other it was spiders and then it was a god. Damn. Everything was action-packed and it makes you read it all in one sitting.

I have to admit that the whole core of the story, meaning the Egyptian things, were spot on, but I still hated how all the romance came to be. I hated that the Sons of Egypt have to be separated. I'm happy that everyone got their happy ending, but I thrive for better happy endings. STILL, it was a wonderful read. Ignore my tantrum, read the series.
