I love the cover of Every Last Kiss by Courtney Cole. I love the columns and the palm fronds, and the girl’s billowing hair and robe. The blurred out face in the background is visually arresting, and the first thing I wondered when I saw this cover was – What is this book about? It looks awesome! Could it possibly take place in Ancient Egypt, my absolute favorite time period? The answer is a resounding YES! I can hardly wait to read this one!
17-year old Macy Lockhart has the weight of the world on her shoulders.
For thousands of years, she has been a Keeper in the ancient organization, the Order of the Moirae. She literally holds fate in her hands.
But this is something that she forgets, because her memories are wiped clean when she is reborn each time, until it is time for her cycle to begin again in her seventeenth year in each life.
And for the last two thousand years, this has never been a problem. Until now. But now, fate is being challenged and to fix it, she is forced to return to a previous life, one where she was Cleopatra’s handmaiden, Charmian.
Cue up the second problem: Unless she interferes with the fabric of time, the very thing she has returned to repair, then her soul mate, Hasani, will die leading Marc Antony’s armies against Rome. Can she really stand aside and allow the love of her life to die all over again?
