***** This is the first book in the Theodosia Throckmorton series. THESE BOOKS SHOULD BE READ IN ORDER *****
This story is told from the point of view of 11 year-old Theodosia, whose Egyptologist parents run the London Museum of Legends and Antiquities. Theodosia has spent her entire life around Egyptian artifacts and has discovered that she has a gift, she can see and feel the ancient magic, both bad and good, on the artifacts.
When an evil curse on one of the museum's artifacts threatens to bring down the British empire, Theodosia has to do something about it. And that puts her face to face with danger, both modern and ancient.
