Format: Hardcover
As a long-time fan of Elizabeth Peters, I am happy to see that with this book, she returned to the time when the focus of the Amelia Peabody series is on Amelia and Emerson, rather than on Ramses and Nefret and others (which is not to say that I have not thoroughly enjoyed these characters and their romances and adventures as well). While I can understand the necessity of aging the characters in such a long series, I personally am not ready to see Amelia and Emerson consigned to the old archeologists' home, where they are merely subsidiary foils for the rest of the cast.
This is a much better book than her previous one, wherein the plot was lost in a maze of uninteresting characters. Thanks to the device of finding lost papers of the "missing years," Amelia and Emerson go back in time to return to the Lost Oasis, one of the most intriguing and satisfying adventures of the series.
In short, Amelia is back in full force. Enjoy!

Not my favorite but so important for establing the personalities of the characters (as well as the marriage of Ramses and Nefret. And it includes a fantastic surprise!

As I have stated in my reviews of other entries in this series, this is one of my top 3 series to read. I have truly enjoyed the adventures of Amelia Peabody and family. This book, at least for me, was a change of pace in that there is quite a bit less action in it than previous books; I think Amelia uses her umbrella as a weapon only once throughout the entire book. And, there is less, in fact hardly any, attention paid to the excavation work being done. Having said that, there is still plenty to interest the reader as always. Approximately half of the book is devoted solely to Ramses and Nefret which was nice for a change and the mystery is intriguing as always. Just a couple more books in this series to read and then I will have wait for the annual publication of the next one and the next and the next....

Please no more Ramses and Nefret! I adore the Amelia Peabody series but please can't we focus on the stars of the series--Amelia and Emerson. I find Ramses and Nefret dead bores. Amelia and Emerson have one of the best written love stories I have ever read. I love the first books through the Snake, Crocodile and the Dog, but the later books are too full of characters and too much focus on Rameses and Nefret. Amelia and Emerson are too much the background characters forced to do nothing but wring their hands and endlessly speculate on what Ramses and Nefret are doing. However, even in the later books the plots are riveting and it's difficult to figure out who the bad guys are. I wish the "editor" would discover those missing Amelia Journals she keeps mentioning so we can return to the early days of their adventures with their wonderful bickering and witty humor that makes me laugh out loud.

By Silence Dogood on Sept. 2 2002
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I should have known this book would be bad when the Amazon.com reviewer remarked that "Innovation can be overrated." The author has completely run out of ideas. There is not much plot to speak of. Much of the book consists of characters ruminating about things that happened in prior books. More than half the book concerns Ramses and Nefret - absolutely perfect, gorgeous, intelligent, plucky, devoted, and totally boring. They belong in a romance novel. The only suspense here was wondering if I would bother finishing the book. The only mystery was why I bought it. The first couple of books in this series were good - stick to them and skip this one.

For years Ms. Peters has been thrilling us with tales of the Emersons, and this is a superb novel which continues the family tradition of 'another year, another body'. Ramses and Nefret, the second generation, continue to fascinate, but Amelia is center-stage also as she and the indefatigable Radcliffe try to discover who is raiding their tombs in Luxor, and who in Cairo wants Ramses dead. Lots of old acquaintances pop up along the way to lend a hand, or pose a threat. For avid followers of the series, this is one they will not want to miss.

This book was definitely a helper in satisfying The Falcon at the portal and He Shall Thunder in the Sky. Finally Ramses and Nefret are married and grown up! And then (Surprise!) a member of the family shows up again and an nuisance becomes a friend. This book is a tribute to Peter's skill at keeping a story going. I never got bored and towards the end could not put it down. I can't wait to read The Golden One! I would most definitely recommend this book for anyone! But make sure that you've read the rest of the series first, otherwise you'll be very confused!
It was altogether another trivial trip through Egypt with the Emersons.
