A lost journal of Amelia Peabody has been
miraculously recovered, a chronicle from 1907–1908, one of the “missing years,”
shedding light on an already exceptional career and an unexpected terror.
Ousted from their most recent archaeological dig
and banned forever from the Valley of the Kings, the Emersons are spending a
quiet summer at home in Kent, England, when a mysterious messenger arrives.
Claiming to be the teenage brother of their dear friend Tarek, he brings
troubling news of a strange malady that has struck down Tarek’s heir and
conveys his brother’s urgent need for help only the Emersons can provide.
The family sets off in secret for the mountain
fortress from which they narrowly escaped ten years before. The Emersons are
unaware that deception and treachery are leading them onward into a nest of
vipers, where a dreadful fate may await. For young Ramses, forced to keep his
growing love for the beautiful Nefret secret, temptation along the way may
prove his ultimate undoing. And a dark past and grim obligation have ensnared
Nefret once again, as she is helpless to save those she loves most from the
prison of the Lost Oasis. Download and start listening now!
