You know that feeling when you feel like you are gonna go mad if you do not get a certain book right away, when you are obsessed and all you want is that one book and you will be happy? That is what Monday Madness is about. All those books you that drive you mad.

Pick a book. Talk about it- why do you want it? What has drawn you to it? Why is it making you mad with want for it.

Warrior of the Nile by Veronica Scott
The Gods of Egypt #2
Published September 16th 2013 by Carina Press

Egypt, 1500 BC
Lady Tiya is bound to the service of the goddess Nephthys, who plans to sacrifice Tiya’s body to protect Egypt from an ancient terror. She embarks to meet her grim fate alone but for the hardened warrior Khenet, who is fated to die at her side. Tiya’s dreams of love and family now seem impossible, and Khenet, who is the last of his line, knows his culture will die with him. Struggling with the high cost of Nephthys’s demands, both resolve to remain loyal.

Neither expects the passion that flowers when Tiya’s quiet courage and ethereal beauty meet Khenet’s firm strength and resolve. On a boat down the Nile, their two lonely souls find in each other a reason to live. But time is short and trust elusive.

Without the willing sacrifice of Tiya and Khenet, a great evil will return to Egypt. How could the gods demand their deaths when they’ve only just begun to live?

I read the first book, Priestess of the Nile, back in 2014 and definitely liked it. Find my review of it here. I thought it was really original because it was a story feauturing Sobek, the crocodile god. I haven't read many stories about ancient Egypt featuring him. I really want to read Warrior of the Nile too because of that. Also, it's a 100 pages longer than book #1 so that's another reason for me wanting to read this book. I just never got the chance to buy and read it. 

And as always don't forget to check out Christina's post! ♥
