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.
