One woman — an adventurer and archaeologist with a brilliant mind — must now confront a dreadful adversary more fiendish and formidable than any she has ever encountered. But by doing so, she may be feeding the flames of a devastating firestorm that threatens the fragile lives of the tender and innocent.

I reread the entire series while eagerly awaiting 'Children of the Storm'. It was like visiting with dearly loved friends. 'Children' adds another generation to the wonderful Emerson-Peabody clan, and finally makes Sethos a real and important addition to the family. Ms. Peters' attention to historical detail is, as usual, magnificent. Her characters are wonderfully human, as well as being heroic, intelligent, eccentric... I can't recommend this series of books highly enough. When is the next one being published? Ms. Peters, your public (and of course, Amelia's) awaits.

A full cast of characters and an elaborate mystery make this one of the best Amelia Peabody mysteries to date. The whole Emerson family is in Luxor for this one, along with several of the characters who enlivened previous books in the series. As usual, the mystery is well-developed, and the book is suspenseful up to its gratifying ending. For those new to this series, I recommend reading some of the earlier books first just to add to the enjoyment of this one.

i am pleased as punch to relate that the latest installation in the amelia peabody series is a winner. In 'children of the Storm', the author manages to re-capture all of the enthusiasm for her subject she made a literary name for herself doing. the characters (family, friends, & villains) are exceptionally well drawn and the denouement is a truly pleasant surprise. Highly reccommended!

Elizabeth Peters can write no wrongs! Having stayed up till 3 in the morning to finish this book i must say that i still could not fall asleep. I lay awake and thought only of the next wonderful installment(and the headaches from David John!). Reading about the Emerson clan is like coming home to welcome arms.
