Overview

Given her ten-year curse that leaves her beaten and bruised, Emma Patrix has grown accustomed to drinking away the pain. And with a trail of dead bodies behind her, it was only a matter of time before the law caught up.

She finally catches up with him in Egypt, but he's not the same sweet boy she remembers from her childhood. And getting him to help her proves more difficult than she ever imagined.

I love everything that has to do with Egyptian lore so when i saw this book i knew i'd love it too! Emma Patrix lives with a curse that has a tendency to kill those around her. When the police charge her with murder, she heads to Egypt to find Calvin, a childhood friend. She figures that he's the only one who might be able to break the curse and save her from jail time. I loved how the story unfolded and how the characters came to life. Lisa Rayns did an excellent job writing this short!

Lisa pens "Curse of the Egyptian Goddess" in a plot filled with excitement, plenty of twists and turns that keeps you turning the pages. A great novella where you will find yourself connecting with the characters and wondering if they will ever break the curse. This is the first book in the 'Curse Trilogy' and I look forward to reading the next installment. A must read for all paranormal, fantasy fans. This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this book. It is a novella so its not very long, but unlike some I've read in the past it wasn't rushed or condensed. I felt a connection with the characters as I read about their lives. It stars a woman named Emma Patrix and her first love Calvin who are both cursed. One turns into a cat and one gets attacked by a giant snake. I thought that the characters were well developed and the story was interesting. Its got a bit of romance in it as well which I thought made the characters a bit more dynamic. I can't wait to read more from Lisa Rayns.

Emma Patrix has kept herself in a drunken stupor for ten years, trying to block out her curse - the curse that killed her family and has prevented her from connecting with other people. When the curse takes Chad, the one man she allowed herself to get close to, Emma sobers up and heads to Egypt to find the one who may be able to break the curse. I am a mild Egypt buff (have seen the King Tut exhibit twice) and have always been fascinated by the era of pharaohs, pyramids and the pantheon of ancient Egyptian religion, so I really looked forward to reading this book. The novella was such a fun read. It's not deep or thought-provoking, but it contains just the right amount of light banter, sexual tension and suspense to be thoroughly entertaining. I especially enjoyed the twists and turns the story took.

Curse of the Egyptian Goddess is a relatively fast paced mystery and romance themed novella that packs the punch and satisfaction of a full blown novel. The premises of the story is of a young girl named Cleo Patrix (she would later change it to Emma) and boy named Calvin, who are very much in love. They find a unique and mysterious pair of necklaces when their parents are on a dig in Egypt. They take the necklaces unknowingly that they bear a curse until it's much too late. One brings on a snake that injures the wearer and kills whoever touches it, and the other is a cat in which the wearer transforms - which is meant to keep the snake at bay. Many deaths and years later, and all that is left of the young duo are themselves. However, they have led separate lives since that fateful year in Egypt. Emma must find Calvin, but when she finally does she realizes he is no longer the boy she one knew. He is a grown man now, but has his love for her waned? Do they find a way to break it? Will they be forced to suffer for the rest of their lives? Will Calvin forgive Emma, and help to undo the curse they began as children? I really enjoyed this story, and like any good book I wish there was more. This is not to say that the author left anything out, or even leaves you hanging. No, I just fell in love with her characters and writing style. This is an author that I will keep my eye on for more reading pleasure, and you should too! If your seeking a quick, turn paging read that is filled with mystery, love and sensual tones than this is the story for you!

I really enjoyed this book! I like mythology, but I’m most familiar with Greek and a little Norse. To get a taste of Egyptian mythology was really fascinating. The way it was weaved into the characters’ lives was interesting and added a really dire conflict. As for the characters, I loved Emma’s character. She drowns herself in alcohol to deal with her curse and it takes its toll, but she still has a good heart. Calvin is such a brokenhearted man. He starts off as kind of a jackass, but you totally feel for him when you find out why. Being a fairly short book can often present a challenge to get character development and plot development all packed in efficiently. I feel that the character development is there and most of the plot is. My only complaint for the plot comes in at the very end. The ending solution is a little confusing, but ultimately easy enough to just roll with. If you’re looking for a short read that will have you wanting to say “hells yeah, ‘bout time!” one moment and have your heart squeezed in a vice so tight you think it’ll just stop in your chest the next, go read Curse of the Egyptian Goddess. It’s got an ending you’ll never see coming!
