I'm getting quite a kick out of these latest books in the series. Sethos is a wonderful addition to the family cast as well as little children (who all sound alike but who nevertheless add a bit of humor to storyline). One thing I enjoy about Ms. Peters' books is that she freely mingles caricature with real life touches - the fear that Nefret has for her family if she were to die brings the story closer to the reader. I'll be sad to reach the end of the Emerson family adventures... ( )

By book 15 you either love this family and their adventures or not. I obviously do. I love Barbara Rosenblatt's narration and was glad to find the unabridged version at the library since audible only had an abridged version. ( )

Good but a bit tedious ( )

The Amelia Peabody series still hasn't grown stale for me. The characters are so delghtful, their adventures are so exhilarating, and so many wonderful new characters are added, that it is still fresh and more fun than the three-ring circus that their lives often resemble.

In this installment, Amelia and co. are on the trail of thieves who've stolen a few very valuable pieces of Ancient Egyptian jewelery from their good friend, Cyrus Vandergelt, as they try to work out a pattern to a number of other seemingly unrelated events. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061032484, Mass Market Paperback)

A Great War has ended, but evil still casts a long shadow over a violence-scarred land. One woman -- an adventurer and archaeologist with a brilliant mind -- must now confront a dreadful adversary more fiendish and formidable than any she has ever encountered. But by doing so, she may be feeding the flames of a devastating firestorm that threatens the fragile lives of the tender and innocent.
