Teaser Tuesday - Theodosia and the Last Pharaoh (6/21/11)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading

The Rules:
•Grab your current read
•Open to a random page
•Share two (2) or so “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
•BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
•Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers

This week's teaser comes from book #4 in the Theodosia Throckmorton series, Theodosia and the Last Pharaoh, by R.L. Lafevers. I've been a fan of this series since I read the first one and fell in love with this precocious and determined 11 year old and all the ancient Egyptian messes she falls into.
Even though I had been here once before, my heart beat faster and I felt tingly all over. Four thousand years ago, ancient Egyptians had worked in here, creating these carvings and fashioning this majestic sarcophagus. I held myself very still and closed my eyes, wondering if perhaps I could hear the echo of their ancient voices, feel the scrape of their ancient tools. ~ pg. 124

In this fourth book in the series, Theodosia sets off to Egypt to return the Emerald Tablet—embedded with the knowledge of some of the ancient world’s most guarded secrets. Accompanied by her cat, Isis (smuggled along in a basket), Theo plans to return the artifact, then explore the mysteries surrounding her own birth and oh, yes— help her mother dig up treasures on her archeological expedition.
But nothing ever works out as planned, especially when a precious treasure appears suddenly, and then just as suddenly disappears . . .

When the Serpents of Chaos get involved, Theo finds she’s digging up a lot more than she expected!

I keep thinking about picking up the Theodosia books from the library. They really sound like fun reads! Great teaser! It really shows off the author's writing style.
