Warrior of the Nile by Veronica Scott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
As soon as this one popped up on Netgalley I knew I needed to read it. I loved the first one in the series and this one did not disappoint.
Lady Tiya is bound to the service of the goddess Nephthys, who plans to sacrifice Tiya’s body to protect Egypt from an ancient terror. She embarks to meet her grim fate alone but for the hardened warrior Khenet, who is fated to die at her side. Tiya’s dreams of love and family now seem impossible, and Khenet, who is the last of his line, knows his culture will die with him. Struggling with the high cost of Nephthys’s demands, both resolve to remain loyal.
My Take: The magic of egypt seems to jump off the page. As does the romance. The reader follows Lady Tiya and Nephthys as they travel down the nile in the search of their shared destiny. One that may seem bleak but full of purpose. Along the way they find love and even more reason to fight.
There is something romantic about old Egypt that flows easily through the story. I enjoyed this one and can't wait for the next installment in the series.
