The ancient powers lost to Potara have returned. The Brotherhood of the Black Rose rises to bring Thoth into disorder. And, while the Brotherhood reclaims their power, chaos reigns among the survivors. Six individuals have emerged from the aftermath struggling for control over their lives and a divided land. Kem and Shirin, who abolished the five thousand year reign of the Amun Priests, rule from the golden throne of the Oracle’s Chair in the Hall of the Nine. Dio and Axios struggle to piece together a resistance worthy to challenge the ancient magic which resides in the Great Temple of Amun, and Leoros and Atlantia try to remain true to their hearts and their cause despite tragedy.
But when the Book of Breathings is discovered, the path to immortality is revealed. Leoros and Kem race to capture the Soul of the World unaware of the challenges awaiting them. This time, the gods themselves will intervene.
In a tale where boys become men and girls become women, where treachery and deception are around every corner, and where primeval mysticism finds its way back from the grave, victory is reserved for neither the good nor the evil, but the powerful.

I am not a huge fan of mythology but something about the blurb caught my attention. I hadn’t read the first book and by reading the reviews, I needed to, so I read them back to back. I was impressed by the authors obvious knowledge of history, especially the Egyptian mythology. This book read like a non-fiction novel to me, I loved reading the authors take or twist on the gods as it unfolded. Leoros and Kem are an awesome two-some. They are definitely heroes and are quite spunky at that. I just wanted to note that the book has multiple points of view (MPOV) which is not for all but I really like it. I find it gets boring when you don’t have the other characters take on the situation. All in all, I am impressed with the series and will definitely be reading the rest as Joshua rolls them out.
