 About Soul Reborn




Asar, the Egyptian God of the Underworld, has been tortured and left soulless by a malevolent goddess, relegating him to consume the very thing he was commissioned to protect. Human souls.  Now an empty shell of hatred, Asar vows to kill the goddess and anyone involved in her release, but fate crosses his path with a beautiful blonde huntress who has a soul too sweet to ignore.


Lilly, fearless commander of the Nehebkau huntresses, is the only things standing in the way of the goddess’ undead army unleashing hell on earth. But Lilly has a secret–one she is willing to sell her soul to keep. If the Underworld god discovers her role in the dig that released the goddess, she will lose everything, including his heart.

 Jean on why she wrote a series based in Egyptology: “Well, I’ve always had this fascination with ancient Egypt and the secrets it holds: the pyramids, the mummies, the hieroglyphics…”

Jean on writing a series: “Each book in a series has to be their own story, but there’s this huge – bigger plot line that crosses all the books in the series…”
