Five years ago, the gods of ancient mythology awoke around the world. 
This morning, Kyra Locke is late for school. 

Seventeen-year-old Kyra lives in a transformed Washington, D.C., home to the embassies of divine pantheons and the mysterious Society of the Sun. But when rebellious Kyra encounters two trickster gods on her way back from school, one offering a threat and the other a warning, it turns out her life isn’t what it seems. She escapes with the aid of Osborne “Oz” Spencer, an intriguing Society field operative, only to discover that her scholar father has disappeared with a dangerous relic. The Society needs it, and they don’t care that she knows nothing about her father’s secrets.

Now Kyra must depend on her wits and the suspect help of scary gods, her estranged oracle mother, and, of course, Oz–whose first allegiance is to the Society. She has no choice if she’s going to recover the missing relic and save her father. And if she doesn’t? Well, that may just mean the end of the world as she knows it. 

From the author of Blackwood comes a fresh, thrilling urban fantasy that will appeal to fans of Neil Gaiman, Cassandra Clare, and Rick Riordan. 
My Thoughts: WOW, WOW, WOW. OK from this cover alone I want to read this!!!!! The Ancient Egypt theme draws me in because I love everything to do with Ancient. The colours used are eye catching and bold so they will catch the readers eye while in a bookstore. And then the blurb? I mean come on!! Could that sounds any more amazing!!!!! I can't wait to get my hands on this book.
