Readers, be prepared to encounter danger, secret societies, and curses galore! Theodosia is not your typical 11 year old, although her grandmother certainly expects her to behave as a young woman of society at the turn of the 20th century. Theodosia Throckmorton is more concerned with removing all the vile, ancient Egyptian curses that haunt the artifacts at the London Museum of Legends and Antiquities where her parents work. This adventure finds Theodosia not quite avoiding danger on the streets of London and Cairo, in an attempt to return one especially cursed artifact to its origins before the Serpents of Chaos can get it in their evil clutches. Readers who enjoy reading the Enola Holmes Mysteries by Nancy Springer will delight in this historical fiction novel with a heavy dose of the supernatural.
