    Ouch!

    My god! What a novel, but why so much heartbreak?! I repeat this to myself, over and over and over, as I walked dazedly around the house wondering how I am going to wait six months for the next installment. Elizabeth, why are you doing this to us?

    Ms. Peters has did it again.

    Another great story from someone who has entertained me for years. From the first book of Peabody that I read over 20 years ago, to this one I have adored the series and this one is a top notch read. I started with The Crocodile on the Sandbank and with this book I am still a fan of the hero and heroine. I look forward to each new offering from Ms. Peters...

    please put Nefret and Ramses together!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am also a teen thouroughly enveloped by Elizabeth Peter's ameilia peabody mysteries. I read one, and couldn't put it down, so i read more and I absolutely love them!!! BUT, Please Ms. Peters- i beg you-put Ramses and Nefret together. Nefret is so much like me and I believe she and Ramses deserve to be together. David and Lia are perfect and happy-so why shouldn't Nefret and Ramses be. other than this small detail, the book was ms. peters usual fast-paced thriller. I look forward to the next one!

    WHAT A SHOCK! Well written, but not exactly what I had in mind!

    I should have realized that a series can't go on this long without having something happen to totally surprise the reader, and keep him/her from being complacent about characters! I have been an avid Amelia Peabody fan for over 15 years. I admit, in these later books, Amelia herself seems to be lapsing into a less formidable character than we have been familiar with, but I think that is a necessity in order to allow room for the character development of Ramses, Nefret, and David. The Falcon at the Portal was rather a shock, as far as plot. I am very grateful to have had the reviews to read first, as I was somewhat prepared for the events in the book. Had I not been so prepared, I might have thrown the book out the window at certain points! However, I do feel that it was worth reading, and I am certainly anxiously awaiting the next book in the saga. Note to Elizabeth Peters: Enough already! Will you make Nefret & Ramses sit down and be HONEST with each other? They seem to have a bit of a problem with that! Other than this criticism, my hat is off to you for keeping my interest TOTALLY peaked throughout your entire series. And THANK YOU for the kitten (I am hoping we will see it in the next book!), and for giving Horus a new interest in life. Perhaps he will be of some use afterall.
