Best Peabody

The Emerson family goes back in time (in a reasonably legitimate way) to ancient Egypt. They use their knowledge of the time to help a tribe lost in time. Includes Nefret's origin story.


Great fun for Archaeology buffs.

I am a total fan of the Amelia Peabody Emerson series of novels. I discovered them about a year ago and having a daughter that is an Archaeologist, married to an Egyptologist, who lives in Egypt I have especially enjoyed the books. Now after having visited Egypt for the first time in December I can visualize the places described in the books. Elizabeth Peters can transport the reader to the turn of the century when many of the Archaelogical discoveries were initially made. i.e. the period of Harold Carter and others. This particular novel has the Emersons transported to the age of the Ancient religious practices through a lost civilization that has continued by staying hidden to the rest of civilization. The result is an exciting adventure filled with intrigue and danger as they land in the middle of a power struggle between two brothers for the kingship. We get a view into how the people lived and died in the times.


Humor and Adventure!

by Trektark on May 15, 2009

This was my first experience with an Elizabeth Peters novel. I enjoyed the story. Peters" sense of humor blended in well. The Egyptian background for the book was intriguing. Although I found the book entertaining, there were times that I found myself losing focus due to some of the seemingly endless "babbling" by various characters. While this added to some of the humor, it also created periods of boredom, for lack of a better word. Overall, however, it was still a good read.
