This one I received through netgalley was uite different from anything else I ve read I ad uite a few issues but there was something about it that I really liked that saved it somewhatWhat I wasn t so keen on The writing wasn t particularly good I wanted to be able to feel that this story was set by the Nile with the sights sounds and smells described I wanted to feel I was there There really was none of that and I felt it would ave made a good use of word count to spend some time on "really sueezing every ounce of description out of a great setting "sueezing every ounce of description out of a great setting steamy bits were a bit terse and rather formulaic Also the whole eroine losing Bloody Bones (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, her virginity bit was not convincing I personally reckon all authors should be reuired to read this piece on Smart Bitches It says what I mean Honestly the poor girl s apparently feeling a tad sore ande goes at Bloody Bones (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, her at least twice after popping the cherry Can te just give er a rest OK I feel better for that rant nowWhat I like This is a very uniue setting with a uniue plot I guess some might classify it as paranormal but it s not it s definitely mythological and I really really enjoyed that I loved that this author chose to write a story in a setting which is so very different It works incredibly well The ero is a god Now normally this means paranormal but no the author as taken the myths of Egypt and created a convincing ero from one of them I loved this The plot is resolved well OK It was kinda obvious but I like Black and White how it was resolved as much as the resolution itself Make senseBasically the writing was not as flowing or lucid as the story deserved It s the River Nile in Ancient Egypt for crying out loud The writing should be ethereal other worldly descriptive I wanted to smell the food andear the sounds of boats working on the Nile carrying the exotic and expensive and mundane up and down the river I didn tSo 2 stars It was OK Great story though and I LOVED the setting You can also read this review at Reflections on Reading Romance This is a very short novella about 21000 words set in Ancient Egypt While it s a lovely story that I very much enjoyed the romance fell a bit flat for me probably because the length of the novella prohibited much character development That said I absolutely loved the Egyptian setting and was drawn in almost at once by the detailMerys is the great granddaughter of a priestess of the Crocodile god Sobek and is fishing on the shore of the Nile near the god s abandoned temple when a The Color of Water handsome stranger approaches He introducesimself as Bek but e s actually the Crocodile god Sobek in the flesh Sobek is fascinated by the charmingly innocent Merys but e knows that the gods are not allowed relationships with mortal women Despite this Cake Pops he findsimself falling for the young woman and begins searching for a way for the two to be togetherThere s much to like about this novella particularly its setting Ms Scott does an amazing job of immersing the reader in the culture and surroundings of Ancient Egypt without bogging you down in excessive details The political organization of Egypt plays an important role in Brave New World how the story unfolds in ways that I didn t expect but very much enjoyed I m not at all conversant with Egyptianistory but the novella comes across as very well researched and I like benefiting from that research in such a pleasant manner Because the novella is so short there s little time to develop the characters of Merys and Sobek adeuately which is why the romance suffers a bit I think Merys is portrayed as an innocent Cinderella type forced to work as romance suffers a bit I think Merys is portrayed as an innocent Cinderella type forced to work as servant for The Name of the Rose her evil stepmother but we don t learn much abouter beyond that Sobek begins as an arrogant god but soon becomes all too uman in is dealings with Merys which is forbidden for the gods of this pantheon I feel like I would Memories of My Melancholy Whores have enjoyed the romance between Sobek and Merys a bit if we couldave spent time with the two of them together I also wou.

Ld ave liked to see Sobek s personality changes develop slowly but again the length of the text prohibits thisFrankly this was a uick read with a refreshing setting and I would like to see of Ms Scott s work because of ow well she incorporated the setting and er research I feel that this novella was very successful as a story that draws a reader in but the romance needed a little bit developmentI received this book for review from Carina Press through NetGalley After reading and enjoying the third book Dancer in the Nile I picked up Priestess of the Nile and the second book as well This was a shorter novel just under 100 pages and stayed aligned to a romantic tale Nothing WRONG WITH THAT HOWEVER SCOTT HAD with that The Green Pharmacy however Scottad such a wonderful romanceadventuremystery blended genre story with Dancer in the Nile that I felt spoiled In Priestess of the Nile the reader is introduced to a young woman who Deadly Slumber - Demon Tales has no dowry and still lives wither father and disagreeable step mother The woman meets Bek who is really Sobek the crocodile god on the shore of the Nile near a ruined temple which Atomic Ghost happens toonor Sobek The story reads a bit like the fairy tale Cinderella but in Ancient Egypt so the plot is rather predictable It s still an enjoyable read just not all that original As with Dancer in the Nile Scott s use of Ancient Egypt and inclusion of its mythology suck me right into the story The characters were engaging but like the plot I think Scott relied on tropes then she did in Lightning Strike Twice her later novel As such I m anxious to read the second book and will be interested to see if it s like book three where Scott findser voice and develops The Purple Island her own fresh story narrative I enjoyed this take on Egyptian mythology Merys and Sobek the Crocodile God were sympathetic characters I welled up during the Dark Moment and I loved the scene where Sobek leads an army of crocodiles down the Nile As is often the case with novellas I do wish a little timead been spent building the romance Diverting though undemanding read I enjoyed the ancient Egyptian setting found the protagonists likable and found the ending satisfyingFull review soon at wwwmangamaniaccafecom I thought this sounded up my alley but I m tired of romance books describing the male love interest s anatomy immediately twitching upon meeting the female protagonist like it s some kind of sex compass No Just stop right there Priestess of the Nile is a mature romance novella set in Egypt during the 1500s BC It revolves around the brief romance between the Crocodile god Bek or Sobek and the mortal priestess MerysI never would ve guessed that this was an erotica title based on the first chapter as the story opens with an alluring placid interaction between the two lead characters with remarkable potential for the story to come The mythology appears sound the personalities of the characters sharp and defined for the commencement I especially like Merys s personality considering The Last Odd Day her dedication toer sister and in light of Lord Lightning (Astrology, her role as a priestess The budding attractions and one particularlyarrowing event where Bek saves Merys life is well noted but I think the sensuous scene came in a bit awkward perhaps even being oversexed for the tone the story took prior From that point on the story read rough for me because it was rushed for events I found that it was trying too ard to sell the story for what it entailed True this is a novella and it comes in at about 21000 words but I think the extra development would ve made
