Soon, Logan and Seti find themselves on the run from people who want the secret of Seti's immortality as well as from the wrath of an Egypt god who curse Seti in the first place. Kiernan Kelly has always entertained me with her stories. Her ideas are often original, that I don't find in any other stories. Her characters are always lovable. Her dialogs fresh and witty. This book feels like an adventure with a touch of Egypt history. It flows so smoothly that I can't stop after I start, keep turning the pages to find out what will happen to Seti and Logan. The sex is fun and actually makes me smile. The supporting characters are as adorable as the two main heroes (seriously, the modern words that came out from Osiris, an ancient Egypt god, just makes me giggle). Though there is one nitbit thing that I found as annoying (the fact that Seti speaks modern English very well for someone who is being trapped for 5000 years, only by listening) but it doesn't stop me from being sucked into the delightful adventure. Definitely one of my top favorites from Ms. Kelly.

This has not influenced my review.* I wanted to read this book because I'm on a bit of a mummy/Ancient Egypt kick right now, and this turned out to be a fun read with a good story and interesting Egyptian mythology. I'm not sure if Seti can really be considered a mummy since, once he reanimated, he seemed to be the same human/sorcerer he was before, no special mummy abilities or anything, but the author seemed to have a lot of fun with that aspect of his character anyway. Seti had already learned a lot about modern times from being talked to while he was in his sarcophagus, but there was still a lot he didn't understand or hadn't expected, so that made his POV interesting and entertaining, like when he learned about the temperature control in the shower and just kept changing the water from hot to cold in amazement. I thought it was interesting though that, in many ways, Seti wasn't a good person. I don't know if the reader was meant to feel that way, but he killed innocent people while he was king, then he injured who knows how many people throughout the book every time he created windstorms that caused glass to shatter and heavy objects to fly through the air (not to mention destroyed food stands and things that people needed or were trying to sell in order to make a living). But he created the windstorms to save Logan, and he said himself that, when his heart was weighed against the feather in the afterlife, he would not be judged worthy, so he knew what kind of person he was. I'm not complaining though, just kind of musing about his character. I also feel like I should give a trigger warning for sexual assault, even though it wasn't really portrayed that way. *MILD SPOILER* (view spoiler)[Logan woke up at one point, before he and Seti were in a relationship, to find Seti touching him sexually. Since Logan was asleep, he hadn't given consent. It was believable enough considering Seti had been a king in ancient times and was used to having slaves and concubines and just getting anything he asked for and pretty much did think at first that Logan belonged to him, but obviously that doesn't actually make it ok. But Logan was attracted to Seti, wasn't particularly bothered by it, and went on to sleep with him. (hide spoiler)] *END SPOILER* There were a few things I felt could've been better too. The characters, especially the side characters, seemed pretty flat, and the dialogue/interaction wasn't terrible but didn't ring fully realistic either. And pretty much the whole book was riddled with bad decisions on Logan's part. The story itself was good though. This was a short book, so it wasn't the most intricate or deepest, but it did have a little more than just the romance. Last but not least, I wanted to mention that I thought the bits of Egyptian mythology included were interesting. I learned some stuff about Ancient Egyptian afterlife beliefs, and I liked seeing the author's take on the Underworld and gods. So overall, I can't say this is the best or deepest book I've ever read, but it was fun for a quick read. The ancient-immortal-thrown-into-the-modern-world aspect was entertaining, the story was good, and the Egyptian mythology was interesting. Recommended For: Anyone who likes M/M romance, paranormal/urban fantasy, Ancient Egypt, and quick, fun reads. Original Review @ Metaphors and Moonlight

    This just isn't my kind of paranormal, I guess. I couldn't decide if this was supposed to be dark and serious, or more light-hearted. And then there's a literal deus ex machina. But the sex was hot and the characters were mostly likable and it was enjoyable enough that it flew by quickly. This is the first thing I've read by this author, and I'd like to check out something else. Maybe something with less mummies. This just isn't my kind of paranormal, I guess.

Seti reacting to a pretzel vendor while walking down an avenue in Manhattan was cool as was his tasting of a burger and the beer. I wish there was more of Seti reacting to the modern world like his fascination with the big panes of glass in store windows and his inability to comprehend television. (I can't comprehend it either so I read.) Alas there was very little of this. Instead we get thugs shooting one of Seti's boyfriend's best buddy. A greedy industrialist having those thugs kidnap the boyfriend wasn't nice especially since the Egyptian god of chaos takes the Logan to the Underworld to send him to a hell of an afterlife. Can Seti come to the rescue in time to make things right ? And what does the Egyptian god Osiris have to do with this? Did anybody bring beer? What happened to the pizza that was ordered? Oh this has so many twists and turns in it will it ever get a M/M Romance happily-ever-after? This book was fun. But it could have been funner. Still it moved fast and I couldn't wait to see what disaster would come next.

    I really enjoyed this story and the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the plot seemed a bit condensed so that it all fit in one volume without being too long. The plot didn't really have any bad holes or anything, but things just seemed a bit too rushed in my opinion. Otherwise the story was really good and the characters were interesting even if a bit cliched.

Logan was an interesting character and very real which made it easy to follow his story and feel for him in his luck; good and bad. Seti was simply a god on earth and yet the author showed a soft side of him very decently (though, again, I think it was a bit rushed). The only thing that kind of seemed ironic was their names. Seti sounds like a soft name and Logan sounds very strong, though Logan wasn't a weak character, when compared to Seti, he's not the stronger one. So mainly,the name 'Seti' threw me off through the whole story. I enjoyed every bit of this title and it was a nice welcome relief to the long line of kind-of-good-but-not-really titles that I've been reading lately. .

It took me a little while to change gears in my head, and join the adventure I was on rather than waiting for the one I mistakenly thought I would get. See, I went into this story thinking there would be a ton of historical information. I was looking forward to the whole “ancient Egyptian King acclimating to present day” sort of concept, with much more of a serious and slower paced plot and steeped with historical references. I don’t know why I thought that; it’s just what my head expected. So, several times I caught myself questioning the believability of the story in the beginning, and I definitely had to suspend disbelief in a lot of areas. But then I realized this story is meant to be entertaining, and if I am jumping into a story about a cursed Egyptian King resurrected from a sarcophagus, and being hunted by an angry Egyptian god, I should really check myself and just allow myself to be amused. Once I gave myself a good scolding, and got it through my skull that this particular story wasn’t going in the direction I had originally thought, I did just that and found the story, on the whole, very pleasurable. The plot was pretty cool, as long as you go in knowing it is a wee bit far-fetched, and maybe a little rushed. A lot happens in this story, in a condensed number of pages, so the plot flows very quickly from one thing to the next, and several POVs are explored. Multiple POVs generally aren’t my favorite, because I like to be as surprised as my MCs, but in this case, I really appreciated getting into the baddies heads and picturing the bigger plot going on. There were some unexpected turns that the story took, and I applaud the author for throwing in those zingers (one, in particular, that I seriously did not see coming), as it did bring some more serious aspects to the story and gave the plot a bit more depth. Though the characters were quirky and fun, and I really appreciated Logan and his friends’ dialogue and humor, I still can’t help but wish I’d got a little more on page time with Seti, getting his perspective as he adjusted to present day and all the changes in the five-thousand years he was mummified. Seti’s quick acclimation to present day is clarified, but I still would have liked to join his perspective more as he got inside his first car, experienced the shower, used a microwave, and all kinds of little things I take for granted. Personally, it’s one of my favorite viewpoints in books with the time-travel element. It would have slowed down the pacing just a tad, but for me, it was something I was really looking forward to but was skimmed over in order to focus on the other players and the bigger plot going on. Since it is a personal preference, it may not be as big of a deal for someone else. I would totally recommend this story to someone looking for a cute, quick read with an interesting plot.

The first quarter of the story is paced well and moves swiftly from a brief prologue in Ancient Egypt to Logan’s modern day struggle to find work. Seti’s sudden return to life is done with some rather overwrought predictability, but it works given the absurdity of the overall the situation. Unfortunately, from this point forward Seti’s Heart falls prey to a case of insta-love that reads as ridiculous. This is followed by a rushed and jumbled trip through the Egyptian Underworld. Given that Seti is on the run from his maker, the tension from this alone would have been enough to propel the story forward. Yet the author chooses to throw in an additional plot involving an old man and his insane quest to obtain immortality from Seti’s blood. This secondary storyline just creates an unnecessary level of chaos that snarls the pacing and sets the book to tripping over itself. Neither Seti or Logan are particularly well formed as characters. They’re thrown together because Fate demands it, but their immediate and total devotion to one another just doesn’t track. It comes off as forced and stiff and, as a result, both men are rather unrelatable. The secondary cast of characters are surface creations that jump in and out of the plot as needed, but become set pieces rather than integral parts of the story.

Seti and Logan were a good couple, with t he two working well between figuring out the way with the gods and finding out how to work in the present. The only thing that bugged me was the rapid turn around in their relationship. When Seti first awakens and Logan is there, Seti treats him rather like a servant and gives no indication of any interest. Then suddenly later that night when they are at Logan's friend's apartment, Seti makes a move on Logan and says he has been interested since he first saw him. That is not an impression I got at all so it seemed an odd move. No less, it turns out this wasn't just a quick lay but 'bonding' which Seti seemed to take as a heavy commitment and that felt really fast for them to both be feeling. After that things began to fall into place an it worked, but that was really hard to buy into at first.

It was adventurous and constantly had something new popping up in the form of a new twist. This book is not a realistic read but it was definitely enjoyable.

He just knows that he is going to be in major trouble but he just does not know how much trouble is about to head his and Seti's way. This book was so good. I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed his book. SETI and Logan could not have been more of a perfect match.

    This is one of those books where I felt like the author bit of more than they could chew. They wanted to mix powerful and helpless but didn't quite know how to do it right. Mixing gods and mortals is hard either you get something so overpowered that it's unbelievable when the human wins, or you have to dumb them down so much it's a wonder you just didn't make them supernatural humans. Seti's Heart kind of does both. The romance isn't all that strong either.

    While decent, this book could have been so much better had it chosen to develop the relationship route and the main characters instead of the fantasy/mythology/crime elements. The way Seti's and Logan's relationship reached balance and description of the characters personal growth would have been more interesting/funny to read than another "damsel in distress" story.

    A veritable whirlwind romance. And a believable one too. Logan was cute. Seti was hunky. The villains were appropriately evil. The friends were unobtrusive. There was a bit of deus ex machina, but the point of this story is moreso the romance than the conflict. Very cute.

    Review: It was the narration. There were some real laugh out loud moments. In fact it reminded me of (view spoiler)[ Boris Banenov https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ufmph... (hide spoiler)] I love to see if the author continues to write the same humor in some of his other novels. Review: It was the narration. There were some real laugh out loud moments.

    This is a basic romance book with a m/m twist. We meet Logan who is working for the National Museum of Natural History and is stuck working with a cranky old man in the basement. While working he finds the sarcophagus of a sorcerer king named Seti. He opens the sarcophagus and breaks one of the urns that hold Seti's heart which wakes him up. Soon their adventure starts as they try to avoid a madman with way too much money. As they are working to stay under the radar they have a lot of sex.

Soon their adventure starts as they try to avoid a madman with way too much money. As they are working to stay under the radar they have a lot of sex. Seti had found Logan attractive because his eyes remind him of his lover that died back in ancient times. This book was fast paced and each was very entertaining. I did feel that it almost seemed too rushed but I loved the book anyways. There was a lot of danger and craziness that it stayed very interesting. Plus the love story was beautifully put together.

    Audiobook Review. I really enjoyed this listen. The narrator was perfect for this quirky action/adventure mm romance. He is the same narrator from Foxe Tails and this listen had a lot of the same elements. The basic story is a 5000 year old Egyptian king is cursed by one of the Egyptians gods. Our hero Logan inadvertently frees him and love and adventure ensues. There is a lot of witty humor as Seti adjusts to the 21st century. The dialogue among the gods is pretty funny too.

There is a merry Scooby gang which tries to help the couple when they are pursued by the “evil” scientist. I only have two minor nits. First, it wasn’t long enough and thus felt a little rushed in the story; not enough to take away the enjoyment, but there is not a lot of character building. Second, a minor character dies and I don’t understand why that was necessary as it really didn’t bring much to the story except make me sad. I think it was used as a plot device to incite the other characters to act, but I didn’t like it.

    DNF - PG 67 Why? *Shudders* I was worried enough about the rape undertones when Seti ordered Logan to do something and he complied in a manner - and thought process - that indicated that he did so without thinking. (Whether this was a case of actual mind control isn't dealt with in what I read, but it sounded that way to me.) Then, Logan thinks he's having a sex dream - licking and touching going on. (Okay, I'm a little against that, anyway because it feels like it cheapens things, but, I was dealin DNF - PG 67 Why? *Shudders* I was worried enough about the rape undertones when Seti ordered Logan to do something and he complied in a manner - and thought process - that indicated that he did so without thinking.

(Okay, I'm a little against that, anyway because it feels like it cheapens things, but, I was dealing with it.) But then: The cobwebs of sleep slowly cleared, but the sensations of being touched and licked did not. His eyes flew open as he realized he wasn't alone in his bed, and that he hadn't really been dreaming. Do I even need to go into the problems with this? I mean, really. (Non-consent at best, straight up rape at worst.) (Which is kind of a shame because while the appreciation of Egyptology feels mostly absent and what little is there feels soulless, the author did get a lot of the details right.)
