Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos

By: R. L. LaFevers

Illustrator: Yoko Tanaka

London, 1906: Theo, twelve, spends all her time at the Museum of Legends and Antiquities, where her father is the curator. When Theo's mother, an archaeologist, returns to London from a dig in Thebes, she brings back many artifacts, including an amulet known as the Heart of Egypt. The relic is priceless but also cursed with very dark magic that only Theo can see-or remove. But before Theo can exorcise it, the Heart of Egypt is stolen. Black-and-white drawings.

Horn Book

Theodosia Throckmorton has an uncanny ability to detect curses and black magic. This skill leads her to the Valley of the Kings to return an artifact that threatens the fate of the world. Though some characters are wooden (the villains are of the mustache-twirling variety), the story is bolstered by fast-paced action and fascinating Egyptian lore.
