Review of: Priestess of the Nile by Veronica Scott
Merys was born a priestess, but her mother's death made her a servant in her own home. She slaved for her stepmother and father each day. Taking care of the children her stepmother and father had together was her job. Merys' only escape was to go to the Temple of the Great Crocodile God. As a priestess she sang the songs and performed the dances honoring the Great One Sobek. She attended to the temple as best she could under the circumstances. She cleaned it and honored Sobek always. Then one day by the Nile, Merys meets a man, Bek. She is unsure at first but then falls in love with him. Bek is also deeply in love with Merys but his secret will separate them forever.. or will it? Bek is treading on new ground with Merys.
This book is a Cinderella of a different kind. It starts as though it will follow the typical path of Cinderella and then adds some spice, romance and surprises. It's a delightfully sensual read! You find yourself rooting for Merys and Bek from the beginning. Charming, well written and original, this book should be on your TBR list. You will enjoy this book and wonder if there is a next book to carry on. Get this book!
I couldn't find anything wrong with this book. It's such a romantic and loving story!
I give this one 5 out of 5 books because happily ever after is still possible and was in 1500 BC!
