Theodosia and the Eyes of Horus by R. L. LaFevers, Yoko Tanaka

Being able to detect black magic isn’t all tea and crumpets—and for Theodosia Throckmorton, it can be a decidedly tricky business! When Sticky Will drags Theo to a magic show featuring the Great Awi Bubu, she quickly senses there is more to the magician than he lets on, setting in motion a chain of events she never could have bargained for.

Meanwhile, back at the Museum of Legends and Antiquities, Henry is home for the spring holidays and makes an accidental discovery of an artifact that alchemists have been hunting for centuries. Soon, every black-cloaked occultist in London is trying to get their hands on it . . .

Solving mysteries, handling and breaking ancient curses, dealing with murderers and psychos; these are a few scenarios you usually find in a Theodosia book. Theodosia is an enterprising and amazing heroine who usually manages to save the world without the help of adults. She leads a double life under the noses of her loving but extremely busy parents (Who should be paying more attention!!!!).

Eleven-year-old cursebreaker and amateur Egyptologist Theodosia Throckmorton returns again in this sequel to THEODOSIA AND THE STAFF OF OSIRIS, and she's as feisty, capable, and trouble-seeking as ever. Although she's fresh from saving Edwardian London from the secret society known as the Serpents of Chaos, Theo isn't the kind of girl to take a break. The book opens with her paying a visit to a stage show by a man called Awi Bubu, who professes to know real Egyptian magic. Theo has a little experience in that area, and is convinced that Awi Bubu must be a fake, but visiting his show not only proves her wrong, it plunges her into the midst of another adventure. Things only become more complicated when her younger brother, Henry, home on holiday, accidentally discovers an emerald tablet in the museum storeroom. When museum curator Stilton--member of the Arcane Order of the Black Sun, a group obsessed with the occult who seems to think Theo is possessed by the Egyptian goddess Isis--identifies the tablet as an incredibly valuable and long-lost magical artifact, Theo is caught between helping him and revealing her secret to the Chosen Keepers. The Keepers are another organization who seems a little more sane than the Order but sometimes refuses to take Theo seriously. Add the Serpents of Chaos back into the mix, and things get pretty crazy pretty quickly. I loved the first two books in this series, and the third is no exception. LaFevers has created a strong female character who's intelligent and resourceful, who makes mistakes (what eleven-year-old doesn't?) but mostly knows when to ask for help, and has a delightful cast of friends to rely upon. One of the things I particularly enjoyed about this book in the series was the attention it devoted to these friends and acquaintances, from pickpocket Will to magician Awi Bubu to Theo's grandmother. As usual, I'm looking forward to seeing the development of all of LaFevers' well-drawn characters in the next book!

Theodosia is on another adventure in this third novel in the series. Theodosia visits an Egyptian magician's magic show along with Will and his brothers and learns that the Great Awi Bubu may be more of a magician than he lets on. After Theodosia discovers the Emerald Tablet, an artifact which is rumored to hold the secret to turn ordinary metal into gold, Awi Bubu pays her a visit, along with the Arcane Society of the Black Sun and the Serpents of Chaos. More secret societies abound and once again, 11 year-old Theodosia is the only person with the power and the knowledge to defeat the bad guys and save the world from potential chaos. Theodosia and the Eyes of Horus is another action-packed story full of mystery and intrigue. Theodosia discovers the mythological Emerald Tablet and every worshiper of dark magic comes running her way. The Great Awi Bubu claims he is a member of a secret society that is in place to protect artifacts like the Emerald Tablet. The Serpents of Chaos want it to wreak havoc across the globe, the Arcane Order of the Black Sun wan it for their own personal means, and the Brotherhood of Chosen Keepers refuses to acknowledge that the Tablet holds any sort of power. That leaves Theodosia in quite a pickle. She has no adults to turn to and her suspicions of Clive Fagenbush are as strong as ever. Without any adults she can trust and depend on, Theodosia turns to her younger brother Henry and her friend Will. Will Theodosia be able to save the day or will she perish like so many artifacts lost over time? R.L. LaFevers gives us another strong adventure novel starring the one and only Theodosia Throckmorton. The opening to <>Theodosia and the Eyes of Horus</i> was a bit slower than the previous two novels, but the once the action picked up a bit, it went non-stop. The mythology behind the Emerald Tablet and the secret societies that are vying for it is original and interesting. I was captivated by the Great Awi Bubu and I only wish he was more central to the story. The integration of several secret societies can be a little tiresome, but the unusual and varied characters move the story along nicely. Theodosia often works alone and rarely seeks assistance, but this time she needs the help and finds it in the form of her friend Will. It was great to get more depth to both Will and Theo's brother Henry, as they both play a much larger role in this one. Will is ever loyal and even though Theodosia views Henry as an annoying younger brother, you can truly see how much she cares for him. Theodosia is a mere 11 years old, but it feels like she has grown a great deal with this installment and I look forward to seeing where her adventures take her in the future. Theodosia and the Eyes of Horus delves into Theo's rare and startling ability to detect black magic. She doesn't understand it, but she may soon get some answers. I have a feeling the next installment will tell the tale regarding exactly how Theo came to have the powers she possesses. Opening line: I hate being followed. ~ pg. 1 Favorite lines: A wave of longing for those simpler days swept through me, leaving me nearly breathless. I missed that innocence, that special alone time with Mother. Instead, here I was pinching her perfume so I could prevent a fake mummy's very real ghost from haunting my younger brother. ~ pg. 226
