Publisher's Summary

The Great War has ended at last. Archaeologist Amelia Peabody and her husband, Emerson, the distinguished Egyptologist, no longer fear for the life of their daring son, Ramses, now free from his dangerous wartime obligations to British Intelligence. Delightful new additions to the growing Emerson family and new wonders waiting to be discovered beneath the shifting Egyptian sands mark a time of new beginnings in Luxor.

However, the theft of valuable antiquities from the home of a friend - including a magnificent gold bracelet adorned with the image of the goddess Hathor - causes great concern. Ramses' encounter with a woman costumed in the veil and gold crown of Hathor herself only deepens the mystery.

With those in her circle suddenly plagued by a series of accidents Amelia attempts to connect these troubling threads into a pattern. But her investigation is setting her on a collision course with an adversary more formidable than any she has ever encountered.

Performed by Barbara Rosenblat.

Children of the Storm

if you like this series you will love this book. I hate to see this series come to an end. it is a very relaxing, yet not boring, series if you enjoy a bit of history on the side.

One of my favorite series.

Do you like history accurate Alternative Fiction? A family of Egyptologists place in the late 18th/ early 19th century, the golden age of egyptology. I have been listening to this series for 13 years. You will learn more in three books about ancient Egypt than you could in a semester at college, while also having the intrigue of a detective novel. Elizabeth Peters built a legacy with this series that will capture the imagination of history lovers for generations to come. And, Barbara Rosenblat is hands down, the most talented narrator I have ever experienced. (library of almost 300 book) ps. not being paid, just love these books.

Love this series!

I’ve been hooked from the beginning, but the story is getting even better!!! As the family grows, and Barbara Rosenblat gives voice to the new children, I’m even more in love with this series. Highly recommend!!

Another great book in the series!

I'm sad to be nearing the conclusion of this series. It's great and though I thought I knew what would happen, I was only half right. These are not as predictable as you may think.

Another great adventure in Egypt

The Emersons are again having a fine time trying to excavate when dastardly events continue to get in their way. Always humorous and full of intrigue, I highly recommend it.

Fabulous! Another amazing story

I completely enjoyed this book. The plot had many surprises I can’t wait to read the next one. Elizabeth Peters mixes suspense, romance and humor all in one story.

Amelia dumfounds me again—as I chortle at her

Amelia and Emerson and their enormous and motley, talented family weave in and out of mishaps, til the end, clueless. Amelia and Emerson’s usual contest of competing to discover and fit together clues just is not up to snuff, as the events grow more and more alarming and dangerous. Suddenly an old memory pops up, “while doing something else.” But then it is a race to save two of this daring family—and “the treasure.” The whole cast plays the parts perfectly, according to each distinct personality. How Ms Peters mapped all this out through the many complexities of so many books, and still surprises us—masterful—and hilarious.

Thoroughly entertaining

Love, love, love this series. It's so entertaining and enjoyable. When I listen to them, it's like talking with an old friend who is telling about her travels. Thoroughly enjoyable and always entertaining.
