Theodosia and the Last Pharaoh

Theodosia and the Last Pharaoh

Theodosia and the Last PharoahTheodosia Throckmorton began her adventures in Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos. She still spends her time skillfully removing curses from Ancient Egyptian artifacts in the museum where her parents work. She is also dedicated to keeping ancient magic secrets out of the hands of the Serpents of Chaos.

Theo’s mom and dad are still so obsessed with their work they can hardly think about anything else. They remain clueless to the dangers lurking right under their noses as well as the talent of their daughter that keeps all that danger at bay.

This time, Theodosia and her Mother are headed to Egypt on an archeological dig. Theo is also on a secret mission to return the Emerald Tablet to its rightful place in Egypt. The Tablet contains secret information that cannot, under any circumstances, be discovered by Theo’s arch enemies, the Serpents of Chaos. It’s a big burden, actually, to be the person responsible for making sure utter chaos doesn’t take over the world. Theo’s getting kind of tired of all the secrets she has to keep. She’s ready to return the Tablet and be done with it.

Theo’s simple plan gets all complicated when she befriends a boy in Egypt who is much, much more than he first appears. Now the bad guys want the Tablet as well as the boy. They kidnap Theo’s mother to force her to hand both of them over.

Luckily the Brotherhood of the Chosen Keepers still has Theo’s back, and so do some new friends in Egypt who are also dedicated to keeping ancient magic secrets away from the bad guys.

Secret societies, dark magic, evil curses, good friends and suspense…it’s all in there again! Theo is still smart, loyal, sensitive & brave. She truly worries that her mother thinks she is peculiar. She still gets testy when she feels her opinions are being dismissed because she is a kid, or a girl. (And who doesn’t hate that?!) Author:  R.L. LaFevers

 

Theodosia Throckmorton Series:

I missed Sticky Will and Theo’s brother Henry in this one. Both of them stayed home in London this time. I was hoping there would be a fifth book for the return of Sticky Will especially. I found in the FAQ section of Theodosia’s blog that there WILL be #5. Actually, R.L. says that there could even be MORE than five. Let’s hope so. She says that the title for #5 is Theodosia and the Flame of Sekhmet. It will come out sometime in 2012. Excellent.
