The Bible never states this explicitly, but the midrash makes much of this. There were a lot of twists and turns in this novel so it really kept me guessing and was hard to put down.

I did have one small complaint and that is things are getting complicated. Between the secret groups in London and the similar but separate secret groups in Egypt I was having a bit of trouble remember who belonged to what group and what the focus of each group was. This would have been clearer in my mind if I had read previous novels more recently. Overall a great addition to the series. If you liked previous books you will like this one.
I loved that this Theodosia to Egypt and that she learned so much about her history. Fans of strong young women, adventure, travel, and ancient magic should enjoy this book. I highly recommend this series, it is lots of fun to read and appropriate for all ages. Sep 05, Sophi rated it liked it. All right, I admit freely that in the end, I did like this book. But I got a little worried sometime in the middle. I can lavish praise upon the character of Theodosia all day long. I love her. I've probably read the Serpents of Chaos twenty times.
But when I read this book, I was put off by three things: 1 Some of my favorite characters whom I love dearly are missing. Will, Henry, Fagenbush etc. I just All right, I admit freely that in the end, I did like this book.
Egypt and the Fruits of the Pharaohs
I just wasn't as interested in what happens to Theo as I usually am. And finally, 3 While the other books have a tendency to be clever and funny and pure Theo through and through, most of this book lost that and I felt like I was just reading a report of events in the correct order. I know the author is losing steam because this is the fourth book in the series. I know that she needed new characters to help juice up the story.
I know these things, but I still was worried that I would end up disliking the book while I was reading it.

I shouldn't have to feel that way. I'm the reader. I'm just supposed to buckle up and sit back to enjoy the ride. However, that being said, in the end, it was alright, and I liked it more than I thought I would. Jan 03, Angie rated it really liked it Shelves: netgalley-edelweiss , juvenile-non-fic , historical-fic , mysteries. What do I say without giving too much away. On a day I was stuck at home fighting nasty allergies I distracted myself for several hours reading.
Once I started I literally couldn't stop. Some sort of Egyptian party would always attract more. I will say this, though. This is not an easy OK. This is not an easy read--would recommend for advanced fourth and fifth grade, middle school, and nerdy high school or adult set in early 's Egyptian fans like myself. Thank you Amelia Peabody.
Interesting characters! Description that really brought the setting and story to life! I kept clicking hoping the file would move to a new page. It didn't.
Crossing fingers book five is not so very, very far away. So I might have to save them and repost when the books come out. Jan 03, Amy Eye rated it really liked it Shelves: favorites. I received this as an advanced reader's copy to give a review on, and I must say this was a fantastic book!

She's convinced her mother to let her see a dig but her real goal is to turn a dangerous artifact. The journey though quickly reveals dangers entrenched in the very places Theodosia has gone for help.
Ancient Egypt and the Modern World
To make matters worse she's been befriended by a donkey boy who has as fantastic a tale as her own. His destiny and hers seem tied up together. It was fun to see Thedosia finally back in Egypt. She learns along the way about Theodosia and the Last Pharaoh by R. She learns along the way about her special ties to the country and why she's so sensitive to curses and other magic. Book four is by far my favorite of the series. It had the same mixture of fun, mystery and peril as the early Amelia Peabody series does. Fans of the Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan will find some similar themes and plot twists being played out.
Both are aimed at a middle grade audience. Love these books! It ended like that may be it for Theodosia. But I hope not. There was some reference to the fact her gift was not limited to Egyptian artifacts, I had hoped her travels would go somewhere else?
