Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"Peters has always known how to romance us; but by letting history sweep through her fanciful tale, she also proves herself a conscientious scholar." Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"A fast-moving, intrigue-filled plot....[A]n enjoyable read in its own right, powered by evocative depictions of 1919 Egypt and the engaging voice of Amelia herself..." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Readers who enjoy this series for its crisp repartee and interpersonal dynamics will be sufficiently entertained; those who long for more old-fashioned heroics and adventure will have to wait for the next book." Stephanie Zvirin, Booklist

Review:

"This wickedly entertaining tale from the prolific Peters is an essential purchase..." Library Journal

Review:

"This complex series continues with witty dialogue, mysterious twists and turns, and delightful characters." School Library Journal
