Seti’s Heart by Kiernan Kelly

release day review

Dreamspinner Presents


2nd edition

Cursed by the god who shares his name, Seti was an Egyptian king who lost everything; his name, his kingdom, even the man he loved more than anything in the world. For centuries he’s waited in a dusty, forgotten sarcophagus, until Logan comes along. Logan is a graduate student who stumbles on Seti in the basement of a museum and accidentally awakens him. Logan figures any way he looks at it, a missing mummy is going to be bad for his career, so he takes Seti with him until he can decide what to do. He doesn’t want to be accused to theft, but who’s going to believe in a mummy coming back to life? Seti and Logan have a lot more to worry about than the modern day police. There’s a group of scientists that want Seti for more than decoration and a vengeful god with an agenda to get Seti gone once and for all. Logan has to deal with all of that, but his biggest problem might just be Seti himself, who’s trying hard to get into Logan’s pants, and his heart.


This is a fun, exciting story. I love ancient history and mythology and with this book, you get both! This a fantasy book, so belief has to be suspended, but it’s so much fun that you won’t care ☺
Logan is a put upon assistant curator who accidently awakens a cursed warrior/sorcerer – Seti. Seti has been asleep for the last 5000 years, so it’s a shock for him to wake up in the 21st century, lol! The only things he is certain of are 1. That he wants Logan and 2. He wants revenge for the loss of his past life and punishment. What ensues is a story about ancient history, love, betrayal with a few twists. Along the way, both men, (man and mummy sounds a bit weird), have to deal with enemies ancient and modern; and the attraction they have for each other.
I enjoyed every bit of this story. Seti was arrogant but fun. His misunderstanding of all things modern, including the fact that you cannot order people around at will was hysterical. Logan, on the other hand, was sweet, a little snarky and funny. Together they were hot ☺

Fun fact – I had the pleasure of listening to the audiobook way before reading it. It was my first Joel Leslie narration – I really thought there were 2 people narrating – one for the American accents and the other for the Egyptian and British accents (he is that talented☺).
