    " OH MY GOD, AMAZING!!!!! Agonizing, lots of twists and turns...Ramses and Nefret (spoiler!!) finally get together, BUT ONLY FOR LIKE 5 SECONDS, and then...oh gosh, so upsetting...I can't even articulate how insanely awesome Elizabeth Peters is for thinking of such devious plot twists, but I'm kind of mad at her for toying with my emotions! Starting the next one now...I NEED R & N together. "

    " This was one of my favorites in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krystal | 1/24/2014

    " I don't think I've actively rooted for a character to die so much since Dora Copperfield but it made for a delightful read! And he did die so that was a bonus. And seriously, can the Peabody-Emersons adopt me already?! A cooler family there never has been and they just keep getting better with each book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fanny Hall | 1/17/2014

    " The best thing about Elizabeth Peters that you can get away with reading them out of order and you can still enjoy them. I think I have read about 5 of them so far- it's a case of buying them when I spot them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 1/13/2014

    " Another fantastic book! At one point I almost stopped and decided not to listen anymore, it was so heart wrenching! But I'm glad I finished it, although it didn't end with everything cleared up as it usually does. But that just means that I really need to get the next book really soon!! "

    " With space between the adventures, Amelia Peabody is great fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stella | 12/22/2013

    " I am not happy right now with what is happening to some of the characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie | 12/15/2013

    " Ramses is stealing the show from Amelia. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tania | 11/28/2013

    " #11 in the series, and of course it contains one of my favorite (love) scenes "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsey | 11/3/2013

    " Favorite quote: "Let's just say that I've decided to stop dashing my brains out against the stone wall of her indifference. If she hasn't learned to appreciate my sterling character and spectacular good looks by this time, it's not likely she will." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chelsea Daymon | 10/31/2013

    " Another great book by Peters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiffany | 9/8/2013

    " It was soooooo slow. It dragged on and on and on, but the only saving grace was the underlying love story. It's just because I want to know what's going to happen with that love interest that I am even considering reading the next one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ainsley | 4/19/2013

    " I love the Peabody books, and I'm a sucker for the sequence featuring the grown-up Ramses in unrequited love...so there's no way I could give it less than five stars. *sigh* "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna Castele | 10/15/2012

    " I absolutely love this series. These would make great films. Amelia is a heroine for all times, and the archeological setting is delightful. Mummies, sarcophogus, curses, male/female role posturing....Mystery, humor, romance, these books have it all! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 10/6/2011

    " This one was so much about the relationships of the next generation that the mystery itself was rather secondary. But it was still a fun read. It definitely left the reader hanging and wanting to read the next one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 3/31/2011

    " page-turning, tear jerking leaves many issues unresolved, must get next one soon "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 3/4/2011

    " A bit slow to get into the first 50-75 pages. After that very fast paced, highly enjoyable. These characters are always enjoyable to read about and I've loved getting to know them over the series. Classic, well thought out entertaining mystery with a touch of history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rissi | 12/26/2010

    " This was my 1st E. Peters mystery. Loved the humor and the style. Need to go back and read them in order. Lots of fun, plus Egypt and archeology, some of my passions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marita | 10/8/2010

    " One of my favorite Peabody books. Lots of emotional tension, mystery, culture and good old friends. Makes me want for more! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 William Alan | 8/20/2010

    " This is the a surprising book in the series. A lot of things happen that do not fit the pattern of the other books. Truly there are major changes here. I loved it.

    Rames will never be the same. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 8/12/2010

    " Couldn't put it down. Love the evolution of Ramses's character in her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 8/2/2010

    " SPOILER ALERT (to some extent)

    If Ramses and Nefret aren't married by the end of the next book I'm going to write a letter of protest... "
