Book Review: Priestess of the Nile

Egypt, 1500 BC

Drawn to his abandoned temple on the banks of the Nile by an enchanting song, Sobek the Crocodile God is even more captivated by the sight of the singer herself. Appearing to her as a man, he learns she is Merys, a descendant of his last priestess. Though filled with lust, Sobek believes Merys deserves to be more than just his mistress. But the rules that govern the Egyptian pantheon forbid anything beyond a physical joining of a Great One and a human.

Merys is attracted to the handsome stranger, who arouses passions in her that no man ever has. But with no dowry and no hope of ever leaving her village, she dares not dream of the future-or love.

Sobek takes every opportunity to visit Merys, taxing his resolve to leave her pure. When he saves her life, their mutual desire must be sated. But can a love between a human and an immortal survive the ultimate test of the gods?

The Priestess of the Nile by Veronica Scott is a romantic novella that will remind you much of the Cinderella story – with a twist. Merys acts as a slave in her own home, thinking only to please her spineless father and her overbearing mother, stepping aside to please her spoiled step-sisters. She fears she will never be wed and have a family of her own. Then one day she attracts a tall, handsome man on the beach. A man who will change everything. Sobek is the crocodile god and he will do anything to have Merys at his side.

I find mythology to be fascinating and Egyptian mythology is no exception. The beautiful thing about this story is that Ms. Scott weaves a wonderful story including famous Egyptian deities with enough information to help you along if you’re new to the subject but not enough to put you to sleep. Not to mention, the steamy sex scenes and sweet romance make this novella memorable.

I adored this book from first page to last. Any readers interested in short but sweet stories, romances, and mythology will surely enjoy this one!

You can purchase this book at Barnes and Noble for a mere $2.99!

I received this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review. Thank you NetGalley and Carina Press!
