My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the second installment of the life of Theodosia Throckmorton and her amazing adventures in the world of museums, ancient Egyptians and cursed artifacts. Theodosia has to rely on her ability to sense the evil from the cursed artifacts and to protect herself and others from their spells.
In this book, the mummies are on the move. Imagine the surprise of her father when he finds his museum filled with the mummies from all the museums, and private collections in London. What is more, they keep returning when they are transported to their rightful place.
While Theodosia is fending off superlative governesses, at least in her grandmother's view, she gets involved with yet another secret Egyptian society in London. At times they are at cross purposes and sometimes are actually evil, but Theodosia has her marvelous ability to safely handle cursed artifacts and use them to thwart the evil Serpents of Chaos. This book is every bit as good as the first one.
