My first PaperBackSwap book! It's time to take a small break from Amelia Peabody. I really liked this book, but I found myself racing through it to get to the end so I could find out what happened. I don't feel like I enjoyed it enough.
Peters tied up all the loose ends from previous books in this one. That was very nice - it helped me remember a lot of things from past adventures.
I already have the next couple of books in the series (also PaperBackSwaps), but there are so many other things to read. Amelia will just have to wait.
Mystery set in and around Egypt and about archeology and mystery in that part of the world. Set in Egypt at the close of 1914 and the tempest to come around the Suez Canal and the country itself.
Elizabeth Peters rocks! And so does Amelia Peabody. WW1 is underway. All of Egypt is concerned about invasion of Germany/Turkey through the Suez Cannel. Peabody and Emerson along with Ramses and Nefrit are back in Egypt but peaceful excavation is not in the cards. Spys are everywhere. So is the Master Criminal (Sethos). Several subplots from prior Peabody journals finally come together. Amilia and Nefrit show their true grit through it all! A real page turner. I love this series.
Another Amelia Peabody mystery with light humor as Emerson and Amelia tackle another archaeological excavation in Egypt. Great to read after reading The Falcon at the Portal!
This is my favorite of the Amelia Peabody series. Adventure, romance, humor--it has them all in spades.
Trouble is brewing in Egypt at the close of 1914 and no one will escape the fury of the tempest to come. With the world around them at war, Amelia Peabody and her husband Radcliffe Emerson have returned to Cairo for another season of archaeological excavation-despite the increasing danger of an attack onn the Suez Canal and on Egypt itself.
A terrible conflict looms. A long simmering love affair is resolved. A dastardly plot twists like a serpent writhing in the desert sun. There is no escaping the onrushing hurricane that now threatens the Emersons and their world-so Amelia plunges right into it.
Goosebumps as the war threatens.
