Amelia and Emerson must bravely continue making archaeological finds while doing their best to rescue the innocent... and themselves.

1. Long story, but - “Burrito“ haha
2. Tagged - & the title is also the literal premise of the beginning of the book. :-D
3. I try to balance reviews by random people with reviews by people I know/trust, so rarely.
4. Super important, especially if I'm on the fence about buying a book! Not a fan of books that just have a person on them, or where the author's name is huge and the title is tiny. I'm way into artsy covers!

This was a fun romp with the Peabody-Emersons. I loved seeing them back in their element, Egypt. This one was a bit more fantastical than the others so far, playing with the tropes of adventure stories of the time-a lost civilization found, treasure maps, advanced “primitives”, etc, etc. It‘s all great fun, & look forward to the next adventure to come 😊

mrsmarch I love this series...this was the first I read bc I found it at a used bookshop and the title caught my eye. 11mo

I've been thoroughly enjoying listening to this series during my commute and this one is no exception, story-wise. The writing and the adventure are just as fun as I remember but the narrator has changed and I'm really disappointed.

Audiobooks for my drive to Las Vegas tonight! If you are looking for a good mystery, these books are great. I've read all of Elizabeth Peters books and the audios are nice for traveling with the family.

Also, I love the Libby app! I got the chance to sit and play with it last night - 3 kindle books and 3 audiobooks from two different libraries. So easy and fun! 👍👍

I think my #favefemalecharacter has to be Amelia Peabody Emerson. The series starts with her as a Victorian "spinster" in her early 30s, she meets and marries Emerson, discovers her passion for Egyptology and archaeology (the woman loves a good pyramid!) fancies herself an amateur physician (the locals call her Sitt Hakim/Lady Doctor) and solves mysteries along the way. Truly a kickass heroine. #augustofpages #augustphotochallenge
