Treacherous Curse
Treacherous Curse | Deanna Raybourn
136 posts | 99 read | 3 reading | 125 to read
Members of an Egyptian expedition fall victim to an ancient mummy's curse in a thrilling Veronica Speedwell novel from the New York Times bestselling author of the Lady Julia Grey mysteries. London, 1888. As colorful and unfettered as the butterflies she collects, Victorian adventuress Veronica Speedwell can't resist the allure of an exotic mystery--particularly one involving her enigmatic colleague, Stoker. His former expedition partner has vanished from an archaeological dig with a priceless diadem unearthed from the newly discovered tomb of an Egyptian princess. This disappearance is just the latest in a string of unfortunate events that have plagued the controversial expedition, and rumors abound that the curse of the vengeful princess has been unleashed as the shadowy figure of Anubis himself stalks the streets of London. But the perils of an ancient curse are not the only challenges Veronica must face as sordid details and malevolent enemies emerge from Stoker's past. Caught in a tangle of conspiracies and threats--and thrust into the public eye by an enterprising new foe--Veronica must separate facts from fantasy to unravel a web of duplicity that threatens to cost Stoker everything. . . .

I‘m thoroughly enjoying the charming, witty narrative voice in this series. I especially loved the Egyptology plot in this book, which reminded me of the Amelia Peabody mysteries, and I was totally riveted by the side plot involving Stoker. Also, I appreciated that the author took a step to highlight how problematic Egyptology & other archeological pursuits by the British were in the 1800s. On to book 4! ★★★★☆.

Chrissyreadit I‘m 2/3 through now and enjoying it. 5mo
rretzler I thought of Amelia Peabody too when I read this - Veronica does have an Amelia vibe! For some reason, I never did finish that series, I still have several books to go so I‘ll have to get back to them. 5mo

The third book in the Veronica Speedwell series goes more into depth about Stoker's past, leaving more intriguing questions about the history and futures of both he and Veronica. These books get better and better and I am going to be so sad when I get to the 4th book and then I have to wait for more. I just may continue on with the story in my head. It is that good.

robinb Absolutely adore this series! I‘m putting off reading the 4th one! 🤣 6mo

Victoria and Stoker are at it again. This time there's an Egyptian curse and a missing man and diadem. Nothing, however, is as it seems.

Veronica is one of my favorite characters to read! She‘s sassy and clever and just such a strong independent woman! The bantering between her and Stroker is just hilarious! I am so happy I stumbled upon this series! This book did not disappoint! Great adventure and mystery plus that pure Veronica sas! I can‘t wait to see what the next adventure has in store!

Littens I‘m about to get real honest here. I started this book on June 11 & as of today I‘m only 1/2 way thru, it‘s not the book it‘s me. I can always feel when my depression creeps up on me. It takes its worst hit on my reading. But for the last few days I‘ve started to feel much better & I‘m channeling my inner lepidopterist (Veronica) by wearing my butterfly necklace! Hopefully I can end this slump & finish this fabulous book!

Utterly ridiculous, but excessively entertaining. I love Veronica and Stoker. The banter between these two is so much fun and Raybourn creates a full cast of amusing secondary characters. This was a nice break from more serious non-fiction reads and I look forward to the next one.

Best. Yet. This series is just so entertaining and, as I said the last time around, just keeps getting better & better with each book. Truthfully, it‘s hard to go wrong with an ancient mummy‘s curse, a missing diadem, a vile ex-wive, taxidermy, young people behaving badly, Stoker and, of course, Veronica Speedwell herself. This one very much reminded me of Amelia Peabody—time for a reread? A fun read & I look forward to Veronica‘s next adventure.

Congratulations on your Litsy milestone and thanks for the #BankHolidayGiveaway, @Amy-Laura.

Choosing my favourite read in 2018, so far, was tricky. Veronica and Stoker's third adventure is just one of the many good books this year.

I'm looking forward not only to the second book in @EloisaJames's "Wilde" series, but also the third (picture on top).
