    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.

    This one I received through netgalley was quite different from anything else I ve read I had quite a few issues, but there was something about it that I really liked, that saved it somewhat.What 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 have made a good use of word count to spend some tim This one I received through netgalley was quite different from anything else I ve read I had quite a few issues, but there was something about it that I really liked, that saved it somewhat.What 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 have made a good use of word count to spend some time on really squeezing every ounce of description out of a great setting The steamy bits were a bit terse and rather formulaic Also, the whole heroine losing her virginity bit was not convincing I personally reckon all authors should be required to read this piece on Smart Bitches It says what I mean Honestly, the poor girl s apparently feeling a tad sore, and he goes at her at least twice after popping the cherry Can t he just give her a rest OK I feel better for that rant now..What I like This is a very unique setting, with a unique 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 hero is a god Now normally, this means paranormal, but no the author has taken the myths of Egypt and created a convincing hero from one of them I loved this The plot is resolved well OK It was kinda obvious, but I like how it was resolved as much as the resolution itself Make sense Basically, 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 and hear the sounds of boats working on the Nile, carrying the exotic and expensive and mundane up and down the river I didn t.So, 2 stars It was OK Great story though, and I LOVED the setting

    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 Merys.I 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 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 Merys.I 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 her dedication to her sister and in light of her role as a priestess The budding attractions and one particularly harrowing 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 hard to sell the story for what it entailed True, this is a novella, and it comes in at about 21,000 words, but I think the extra development would ve made Bek and Merys s relationship have that muchhold, and wouldn t seem like they fell on the side of insta love connection I suppose that s a minor quibble since there are a lot of instant connections in some stories of equivalent length and structure, but when arriving towards the novella s last portion, where the connection should ve beensound for the events coming across, it didn t add up.The tension in the last two chapters should ve hadimpact for what they lent, but didn t because I felt they were rushed and toldthan shown I thought it particularly telling in one of the lines where Bek thinks Only one thing in my life might affect me in this fashion a threat to Merys And while the following discovery was jarring in ideal, it passed by too quickly and with such a brief emotional resonance that I couldn t really have the connection to it that it would ve otherwise meant Same with the very last scene in the final chapter I just couldn t connect with it despite the intention, and its uneven pacing made it seem thrown together for the resolution.I ll give it the benefit of the doubt it will likely be a story that those who like brief novellas with a bit of action, romance, and historical placements would like, but I think with a bitdevelopment and careful pacing, this could ve come across as a better read.Overall score 2 5Note I received this story as an ARC from NetGalley from the publisher Carina Press

    You can also read this review at Reflections on Reading Romance This is a very short novella about 21,000 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 detail.Merys is the great granddaughter of a priestess of the Crocodile god, Sobek, and is fishing on th You can also read this review at Reflections on Reading Romance This is a very short novella about 21,000 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 detail.Merys 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 handsome stranger approaches He introduces himself as Bek, but he s actually the Crocodile god Sobek in the flesh Sobek is fascinated by the charmingly innocent Merys, but he knows that the gods are not allowed relationships with mortal women Despite this, he finds himself falling for the young woman and begins searching for a way for the two to be together.There 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 how the story unfolds in ways that I didn t expect but very much enjoyed I m not at all conversant with Egyptian history, 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 adequately, which is why the romance suffers a bit, I think Merys is portrayed as an innocent Cinderella type, forced to work as a servant for her evil stepmother, but we don t learn much about her beyond that Sobek begins as an arrogant god but soon becomes all too human in his dealings with Merys, which is forbidden for the gods of this pantheon I feel like I would have enjoyed the romance between Sobek and Merys a bitif we could have spenttime with the two of them together I also would have liked to see Sobek s personality changes develop slowly, but, again, the length of the text prohibits this.Frankly, this was a quick read with a refreshing setting, and I would like to seeof Ms Scott s work because of how well she incorporated the setting and her research I feel that this novella was very successful as a story that draws a reader in, but the romance needed a little bitdevelopment.I received this book for review from Carina Press through NetGalley

    3.5 StarsIsn t the cover for this beautiful I adore it I m a cover slut I love me a pretty cover Now as I understand it this is the author s first book major work and I thought that it was pretty good for a bit of mid afternoon reading I suppose it s a paranormal historical romance with her being a mortal and her lover being Sobek the ancient Egyptian crocodile god.For me I could tell that the author Veronica Scott took her time writing this piece and even though it s less than 70 pages lon 3.5 StarsIsn t the cover for this beautiful I adore it I m a cover slut I love me a pretty cover Now as I understand it this is the author s first book major work and I thought that it was pretty good for a bit of mid afternoon reading I suppose it s a paranormal historical romance with her being a mortal and her lover being Sobek the ancient Egyptian crocodile god.For me I could tell that the author Veronica Scott took her time writing this piece and even though it s less than 70 pages long it was still good If you know me and my reading habits than you know that I usually tend to stay far, far away from short stories novellas novelletes because I like my books to be over 100 pages in length I liked the storyline and the romance that developed between the two they didn t get down and dirty by oage 5 so I knew it could ony go up from there no pun intended I liked Merys a ot but I wish we could have knownabout her life and that the book could have been another 50 pages longer sorry Veronica but maybe if I wish it hard enough she ll bring Merys and Sobek back in her future were because I really did enjoy this story and I do appreciate the hard work she put into researching and writing this work and I hope she continues writing and I wish her all the best.Up until the last 3 pages I was going to give this book a 3 star rating but the ending was my favourite part because it had a HEA and I love romances that end in happily ever afters and I recommend this to those looking for nice light read on a rainy afternoon I recieved a free copy of this book from the pubisher via NetGalley in exchange for my free and honest review

    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 stayedaligned to a romantic tale Nothing wrong with that, however Scott had crafted such a wonderful romance adventure mystery 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 has no dowry and still lives with her father and di 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 stayedaligned to a romantic tale Nothing wrong with that, however Scott had crafted such a wonderful romance adventure mystery 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 has no dowry and still lives with her 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 happens to honor 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 reliedon tropes, then she did in her later novel As such, I m anxious to read the second book and will be interested to see if it slike book three where Scott finds her voice and develops 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 littletime had been spent building the romance.

    I like that Carina Press is publishing romances set in different historical time periods I wish they were a bit longer I m not a novella fan, generally, though I keep reading these because I want the diversity in my historicals.Those complaints said, this book was enjoyable The romance was sweet, though I wish the HEA had been accomplished differently.
