Synopsis


Sophie has always felt out of step — an outsider, even amongst friends in her high school with all the hype about celebrity culture. Her life in L.A. seems to have been already written for her, but when her junior year starts, it all takes a drastic turn. When she crosses paths with the school's heartthrob, Nate Werner, they fall for each other in a way neither can understand. What they don’t know is that by giving in to their desires, they are unlocking an ancient Egyptian prophecy that threatens to return Earth to the dark ages.

To undo the curse, Nate and Sophie embark on an adventure that takes them across the country. But their quest is not only to save the world as they know it. It is also a fight for their very survival. Behind the scenes, there are those that are counting on them to fail

My Thoughts

This novel takes the usual elements in a novel and makes them exciting and enjoyable.It follows the pattern of a girl, who is an outsider until she meets the popular and handsome guy of the school with a paranormal twist.I liked the author's research on certain aspects and the way Egypt is woven in the story is one the best things in the book.

In terms of the characters,I liked Sophie who had a very relate-able personality and outlook on life.Nate was also good and you could understand his character though as compared to Sophie his character did not appeal that much.

The starting pages of the novel was disappointing but it picked up halfway and it was overall an enjoyable read

If you like History and  paranormal novels are your thing then you will love this...:)
