With the help of her old friend Dr. Hassan, Lily departs on her final voyage through the cosmos and across the plains of Egypt. On the journey, she will transform into the being she is destined to become.

    Pancakes and Papyrus

    Nana's rooster crowed, the sound of his cry too jarring for me to ignore. I rolled over and licked my lips, which for some reason felt swollen and numb. My mouth was particularly dry. I groaned as I shifted beneath the sheets, tugging them over my head to block out the piercing beams of daylight. The light was an intruder--an unwelcome visitor disturbing the dark tomb where I slumbered peacefully.

    There was an awareness tickling the back of my mind, but I doggedly ignored it. Unfortunately, whatever it was had sunk in its claws and wouldn't be pushed aside so easily. What was it that I couldn't remember? And why did I feel like I'd lost a boxing match? My head hurt. I longed for a cold drink of water and a bottle of aspirin, but I just didn't have the energy in my limbs to seek what I wanted.

    The clattering of pots and pans told me I wouldn't be able to lounge in bed much longer. Nana was going to call for me soon. Bossy needed to be milked, and there were eggs to gather. My feet hit the cold wooden floor, and as I slid to the edge of the bed my hands shook. I had the sudden feeling that I was in danger.

    When I stood, my knees buckled, and I quickly sat back down. Gasping, I took hold of my grandmother's quilt, my fingers tightening into fists that clutched the fragile fabric as fiercely as I would a life preserver. A cold sheen of sweat glistened on my arms. I couldn't catch my breath. Horrors filled my mind: Death. Blood. Destruction. Evil.

    Was it a dream? If it was, it was the most vivid nightmare I'd ever had.

    "Lilypad?" my nana's voice called. "You up yet, hon?"

    "Yeah," I answered, my voice quavering as I rubbed my trembling limbs vigorously. "I'll be out soon."

    I attempted to shake off the nightmare as best I could and dressed in a faded pair of overalls, a comfortable T-shirt, and thick socks. By the time I headed out to the barn, the sun had fully risen above the horizon. It perched in the cerulean sky, beaming down on me like an all-too-knowing eye. The light painted the thin clouds above in shades of rose and dusty orange. As I walked the well-worn path, the golden sunshine warming my shoulders and the fragrant air tickling my nose with the scent of Nana's flower garden, I felt like all should be right with the world. And yet I knew it wasn't. The gilded setting struck me as false, and I sensed evil things hiding in the shadows. Something's definitely rotten in the state of Iowa.

    Settling onto the wooden stool beside Bossy, I thought I had never in my life been so tired. It was more than physical exhaustion. Deep inside I felt battered, drained--like my soul was one of Nana's wet towels, wrung of water and thrown carelessly on a line to dry. Pieces of me skittered around in the breeze, and it was only a matter of time until a gust of wind blew hard enough to send me flipping into the dust. Reaching up to pat Bossy's flank, I let out a breath I didn't know I was holding. The sound of streaming milk was soon pinging against the side of the metal bucket.

    What kind of incomprehensible human ritual are you engaged in now? an irritated voice said.

    I squealed and staggered up from my seat, accidentally kicking over the milk bucket and my wooden stool in the process.

    It's called milking a cow, ya flea-bitten feline.

    Naturally, I assumed as much. But such an act is beneath us. And for your information, we don't have fleas.

    "Who's there?" I called out, spinning around. I picked up a pitchfork and kicked open a stall, looking for intruders. "My nana has a shotgun," I warned, a statement I never thought I'd ever have to utter. "Trust me. You don't want to get on her bad side."

    Why doesn't she know who we are? questioned a voice with an Irish accent.

    I don't know. Perhaps there is something wrong with her mind. Lily, we are inside you, the initially irritated voice said.

    "What?" I pressed my hands against the sides of my head and

Buchhändler-Empfehlungen

Fazit: Ein unwürdiges Ende einer tollen Reihe =(

Geraldine Chantal Daphne Dettwiler, Buchhandlung Basel

Persönliche Meinung Ich bin sooo traurig Leute! Ich habe mich sooo sooo sehr auf Band 3 gefreut...und ich wurde enttäuscht... =( Das Buch war nicht direkt schlecht, aber es war einfach auch kein würdiges Finale. Erstens habe ich nicht verstanden, wieso die Autorin Lilys Erinnerungen weggenommen hat. Das machte absolut Null Sinn. Passte nicht zu ihrem Charakter, hat die Story nur länge gemacht als nötig. Es gab dadurch etliche Wiederholungen aus Band eins und zwei und gab Lily auch leider einen faden Beigeschmack, weil sie sich so ganz untypisch verhielt…. Komplett anders als zwei Bücher lang davor. Es hat regelrecht genervt und hat viel zu lange gedauert! «He kissed me. And it was sweet and soft and full of very wish and promise that I wasn’t sure either of us could keep.» Super schade fand ich, dass Tia kaum vorkam und wen, dann fehlte da komplett der Biss den sie in recreated hatte... Ich hätte weinen können. Ash bekam dafür ein bisschen mehr Screenplay, was okay, aber leider nicht prickelnd war. Immerhin mochte ich ihren irischen Akzent. Auch Ahmose bekam eine grössere Rolle aber leider war mir, der bisher sympathiste Bruder, in diesem Band eher unsympathisch… Wenn wir schon bei den Brüdern sind, Amon war wie immer total farblos und, aus welchen Gründen auch immer, der einzige der noch geschwollen dahergeredet hat. Ihn zeichnete einfach nichts aus, keine besondere Charaktereigenschaft, einfach nichts. Ahmose zeichnete aus, dass er wohl in jede Frau der Welt verliebt ist *augenverdreh*. Obwohl er der bisher vernünftigste war, wurde er, meiner Meinung nach, in diesem band eher schwach dargestellt…. Schade! Einzig Asten konnte mein Mädchenherz teilweise höherschlagen lassen, aber er machte so viele Fehler, dass ich auch da eher enttäuscht war... OH MAN!!! Wieso?! Es ging auch dauernd nur darum wer wen liebt und wieso und doch nicht und iwie liebt Lily alle drei Brüder und alle drei Brüder lieben alle drei Mädchen oder doch nicht? oder doch? Dass die nicht gleich einen 6er hatten, respektive einen dreier (?) wunderte mich wirklich!!!! Und als dann auch noch das Wort MATE fiel... tja, da wars echt vorbei! Dann, wie bereits gesagt, war die erste Hälfte einfach eine nochmalige Aneinanderreihung von alten bekannten: Nebu, der der Fährenmann, Götter. Apep und Ananse waren irgendwie unnötig (dachte ich... aber falsch gedacht *noch mehr augenverdreh*) «“Now then,“ Seth said with a wraped smile on his face. „where were we?“» Und dann der Finale Kampf! So verwirrend!! Da wusste wohl selbst die Autorin nicht mehr, was sie da gerade machte. Da wurde ein grosses Geheimnis gelüftet und alle so: OMG! Aber dann sagt der Gute: nur die Ruhe, das habe ich kommen sehen und dies und das davor gemacht! Alle: puhh! Der Böse: LOL da musste früher aufstehen! Ich wusste, dass du das machst und habe davor dies und das gemacht! Alle: o_O Der Gute: Ha! Das wusste ich und habe davor blabla gemacht! Alle: Yes! Der Böse: YOLO! Das dachte ich mir schon, darum... ………. Wirklich! Ich übertreibe nicht! «But now the dephts of his eyes were closed, cold. They gold nothing but secrets. Secrets. Secrets. My body collapsed, and when I opened my eyes, I felt hollow and dead inside.» Und dann dieses Ende!!!!! Es war grauenvoll! Grauenhaft! Ich will gar nicht daran denken. Da war einfach so viel falsch! Da das ganze Buch war einfach soo lieblos =( Wieso ich trotzdem 4 Sterne gebe? Weil ich es einfach lieben Will. Fazit: Ein unwürdiges Ende einer tollen Reihe =(
