Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Her father may be head curator, but it is Theo--and only Theo--who is able to see all the black magic and ancient curses that still cling to the artifacts in the museum. When Theo's mother returns from her latest archaeological dig bearing the Heart of Egypt--a legendary amulet belonging to an ancient tomb--Theo learns that it comes inscribed with a curse so black and vile that it threatens to crumble the British Empire from within and start a war too terrible to imagine. Intent on returning the malevolent artifact to its rightful place, Theo devises a daring plan to put things right. But even with the help of her younger brother, a wily street urchin, and the secret society known as the Brotherhood of the Chosen Keepers, it won't be easy . . . she quickly finds herself pursued down dark alleys, across an ocean, through the bustling crowds of Cairo, and straight into the heart of an ancient mystery. Theo will have to call upon everything she's ever learned in order to prevent the rising chaos from destroying her country--and herself

   Good climax to slow start
For much of the book, I thought there was too much telling and not enough showing. Fortunately, the climax redeemed itself with a good chase scene.

   Narrative voice not up to scratch
This could have been a beautiful Edwardian story-a bright Edwardian heroine who had adventures by her side with her beloved cat. Unfortunately, it is loaded with Americanisms. I wanted to break my disbelief and escape into London in 1906, but I just couldn 't. So frustrating! '' At the very least, it should have been given an editor who speaks British English.

   First in the Theodosia Thockmorton serries
This is a children's book serries and I adore them. Theodosia is an 11 year old girl with a gift for detecting what Egyptian relics curse and she has found ways to rid the objects of their curses. She sees she lives in London, her father is the curator of a museum with Jewish objects and her mother is the museum's egytologist and brings these relics back from her digs in Egypt, Only Theodosia knows about curses. In this book, they are two secret socites. This is the first book in the series. In the second book, a third secret society comes into play and in the third book a fourth secret society is added. Love, Love, This Book is for you all to learn and love the whole Serris. For readers age nine to 150, I recommend reccomend. It starts with this one, it's the first.

   A great name for a great character
Strong female character, historical setting, London, Egyptology, adventure what not to like? I bought it as a Kindle Deal of the Day, but was so charmed I read it aloud to my 11-year-old son who also loved it and demanded that we buy the next book as soon as we finished this one. So completely different from the author's His Fair Assassin books, not just in the audience, but also in the narrative style and feel, but still enjoyable. I have recommended it to you.

   This is no Harry Potter or Lemony Snicket
They loved Harry Potter, The Secret Books and Lemony Snicket, so it was recommended to try this for them. Needless to say that they did not get into this book. I am not saying that it was bad, my children just didn 't like it.

A few of my friends and I have read this series. I don 't like the writing being a super-duper amount, but the plot is nice. Something about these books will hook you. I don 't know what it is, but I can 't put the book down. With ancient Egyptian magic and curses, there is hardly any time for laziness. This makes the book have more action and fewer details. When reading, I feel as though I am in Egypt, revealing the hieroglyphs that make up the story.

   theodosia the great
I know the book is ages 7-12 or something, but I was 37 years old, and I read the summary at the back of the book, so I borrowed books 2 to 4 and all of it are really good so I decided to buy another Theosdosia book. I was excited when R.L La Fevers will write another book.

   Couldn't Have Picked A Better Book!
This was one of those good books that I picked out of the book mobile and prayed that it was random. My prayers were answered definitly! This was a great change after reading nonstop - Greek mythology. Plus a fantastic heroine, dark magic and a bunch of evil world domination Germans? What is not to like! I love that it is in the Victorian era of England. There were few things that I could find wrong with this book. As soon as I finished it, which was the same day I took it down, I begged my mom to take me back to the library so that I could check the rest of the series. This book is perfect for children and adults alike, and I can 't wait for the next book!
