A lost journal of Amelia Peabody has been miraculously recovered: a chronicle from one of the missing years, 1907-1908, 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 10 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 has ensnared Nefret once again, as she is helpless to save those she loves most from the prison of the Lost Oasis.

Rich with suspense, surprises, unforgettable characters, and the intoxicating atmosphere that has earned her the coveted title of Grand Master two times over, the remarkable Elizabeth Peters proves once again that, in the world of historical adventure fiction, she is truly without peer.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Review by Kathy Petersen | 2/16/2014

    " Space between Peabodies is a wise move, because, taken in large measure, these delightful books become just a bit ridiculous. Even having avoided this next volume (chronologically for the Emersons, that is) for quite a while, I found Guardian of the Horizon rather slapdash. They spend quite a lot of time planning, preparing, and traveling before getting down to adventuring in the Lost Oasis that the had visited ten years before. Not Peters' best effort but still fun. "

    " I enjoyed this story as I always enjoy this series but I listened to it on overdrive and the narrator was horrendous, I could get passed her voices "

    " I'm rereading this (the entire series actually) and I simply love these characters! I miss them when I'm not reading the books. THis is probably my least favorite book in the entire series, and I'm still enjoying every minute of my journey with them. "
