    Theo Goes to Egypt in the Best Installment Yet!

    Theodosia and the Last Pharaoh is the fourth book in this impressive and intelligent middle grade series. It's also my favorite book thus far. In the past, Theodosia has been mostly confined to the Antiquities Museum of London, where her father is the curator, or the streets of London, but this book takes place entirely in Egypt. This brings a whole new facet and feel to the book, making the Egyptian magic tangible in a way that it hasn't been in the previous books.

    With the new setting, come new characters. Gadji, the donkey boy that Theo befriends, is funny and cocky and his monkey Sefu is fantastic. I missed Sticky Will, but Gadji certainly made up for the other boy's absence. There are a slew of new characters within the various secret organizations, so they can be a bit difficult to keep straight, but I love how complex the series is becoming. Instead of giving us more questions, R.L. LaFevers gives us a bucket load of information to ponder. In doing so, Theodosia matures a great deal. Learning some of her history adds another layer to what was already an intriguing series.

    Theo is still just as adventurous and ambitious as ever, but she grows so much in this installment. Her parents lack of attention starts getting to her and we finally see her break down because of it. She loves her family and she values the role she plays within the Brotherhood of Chosen Keepers, but she's still only an 11 year old girl. And 11 year old girls need their parents to pay attention to them and do more than tell them they're in the way. Theo's fierce attitude and determination have flourished even without the encouragement of her family, but I look forward to seeing how some of the revelations learned here, play into how she conducts herself in the future.

    Theodosia and the Last Pharaoh is another splendid journey into ancient Egyptian magic and mythology. Theo is certainly a character to remember, what with her stubborn will and unwaveringly good nature. She fights for what she believes in and she fights for it hard. Be it her family, her friends, or even the world, Theodosia is always up for the challenge. Add in a few secret organizations, a couple of powerful Egyptian artifacts, some family secrets, a chatty monkey, and an oddly intuitive cat, and you have yourself a series that is memorable and entertaining. I'm waiting on pins and needles for the next one!

    Exciting Book - a must read

    I received this as an advanced reader's copy to give a review on, and I must say this was a fantastic book! This was the first of this series that I have read, and the author did a fabulous job making sure that the reader could follow the entire story without becoming lost and feeling this something was missing. The necessary back story was explained without giving away all of the surprises that I will get when I go back and read the books that came before this one (trust me, Miss Theodosia has my attention, I want to know all of her story!)

    The Egyptian environment was a wonderful background for a story, I love hearing about the gods and goddesses and the magic they held. Any child who is interested in the ancient Egyptians will love this book. It is full of adventure, excitement, mystery, and surprises! I give this book an A for the characters, storyline, originality, and environment! Get a copy of this as soon as it comes out, you will not be sorry!! (for more enjoyment, go get the first books too, before this comes out so you and Theodosia have some history before diving into the wonders of the Last Pharaoh!)
