Theodosia and the Eyes of Horus (Theodosia Throckmorton, Book #3)

Theodosia and the Eyes of Horus (Theodosia Throckmorton, Book #3)Theodosia and the Eyes of Horus by R.L. LaFevers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the third adventure of Theodosia and I think it is the best.  Theodosia gets involved with another Egyptian, this time a magician named Awi Bubu, who is trying to find the powerful artifacts which she has found inadvertently.  In this book, Theodosia has the help of a number of street urchins as well as her brother, Henry.  She also learns something shocking about her grandmother and hints about Theodosia’s heritage.


I am using this series for Homeschool and they are great!  The content provides a look at Egyptian history as well as the Victorian era.  More than that though is the habits of the main character.  She is able to feel the evil spirits and curses which emanate from many of the artifacts in her father’s museum and she finds a way to remove or neutralize many of them.  Her first step is to do a lot of research at the museum library and then use ingenuity to develop the counter to the curses.  In order to research better, she has been teaching herself the ancient languages.  Theodosia approaches her problems the way that I wish all kids could.  Her research is born out of her natural curiosity and she applies what she learns to her own life.
