Peters's romantic thriller, in which the indomitable Victorian archeologist Amelia Peabody searches for Nefertiti's tomb, offers surefire entertainment.

YA-- Although this seventh in the series picks up where The Last Camel Died at Noon (Warner, 1991) ends, it stands delightfully on its own. Amelia's self-assuredness, her devotion to her husband, and her honesty with her readers match well her inventive embrace of adventure. Danger, although constantly present, is balanced with intrigue, confidences, romance, and intellectual exercise as readers gallop headlong into the mysteries surrounding a venture on the Nile. Teens will enjoy fine writing, learn some Egyptian history and meet an indomitable heroine, all between these covers.

The first couple in the series were hard to read. She writes very formally. British style. But I must admit, the characters are addicting! I can't wait to read the next one.Published on April 12 2003 by Trish
I have read all of the Amelia books...This book was my favorite in the series before number 12. It is still way up on my list...I loved Amelia's attempts to woo her husband. Read morePublished on Oct. 21 2002
I'm currently at no. 9 in the series, and so far this is the best of the books. Mostly in the same style as the first book (only in part due to the shared locality of Amarna), this... Read morePublished on Jan. 2 2001
