Journal Entry 1 by winggreenbadgerwing from St Albans, Hertfordshire United Kingdom on Sunday, November 19, 2023
The Emerson family are back in Egypt for another year of excavating. It's 1922, and Howard Carter is about to make the great discovery of Tutankhamon's tomb - but Lord Carnarvon is possessive and won't let his rivals get near. Nevertheless, Emerson is determined to get a peek at the treasure, and more importantly to ensure that the thieves inevitably attracted to rumours of golden riches don't get a look in. Meanwhile the political situation in the middle east is hotting up again. So when Emerson and Ramses are captured by villains looking for someone, the motivation is unclear, though given their history it doesn't take them long to figure out who. Peters fits the story cleverly around the history of the region. I really enjoyed this - although there are two more books to go in the series, chronologically it's the last one and I'm really sad to not be knowing what will happen next to the redoubtable Amelia and family, though Peters has chosen the right time to end as not only have the characters reached a stage in their lives, it's also the year Egypt was granted independence from empire.
