Synopsis:
Mia Langdon—tomb raider and adventure-seeker—has everything she wants. Freedom. Independence. No chains (a.k.a. a man). Her troubles begin when she’s attacked on a dig in Peru. Soon, she’s forced to use her tomb raiding talents to find the flaming arrows of an Egyptian goddess. In the wrong hands, this weapon could destroy the human race—and nearly had.Used to doing things her own way, it isn’t long before she figures out that she needs the help of Harrison Braden Stanton, her stuffy, but so yummy, Egyptologist and ex-lover. There’s one problem. He despises what she does. As Mia and Harrison find themselves in the middle of a battle between the Egyptian gods and goddess, there’s no choice for the woman with a Grand Canyon-sized independence streak and the man working for the Egyptian god, Osiris, but to work together to prevent the destruction of all they love.

This author definitely knows how to take you for a ride when you read one of her books. This is the second novel I have read from her and I am not disappointed. The cover is beautifully and once you start to read you will be able to tell that it is perfect for the storyline. Each of her characters are perfectly thought out and she writes it with a twist that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.  In other words the plot has an amazing flow that will keep the readers continuously entranced in my opinion, I know it did me. This one is has all the awesome features of lots of action, suspense, mystery and maybe a small hint of romance.  Mythologies have always been one of my favorite genres to read, so being carried into the battle of the Egyptian gods and goddess fighting in modern day through their children. Mia, who happens to be this archeologist/tomb raider is one woman you want to be on her good side and do not want to cross. She always has been lucky when she goes after what she wants and is extremely loyal to her friends, family, and preserving all things ancient. So when she becomes betrayed by someone who she thought she could trust and the life of her assistant and who she considers as family is put in danger, Mia will do almost anything to get Sophie back! However, not everyone is who they seem in this novel, I loved how the author throughout the book kept throwing the twists and turns because just when I thought I had the person on who betrayed her pinpointed it turned out to be someone totally unexpected. Sides will have to be chosen! This book has become one of my favorite books in this genre and I look forward to reading more by this author.
