Theodosia will need all her amazing abilities as she battles the dastardly Serpents of Chaos again - there will be curses, secret societies and a runaway Egyptian jackal...

Theodosia Throckmorton is in a fix. While attending a reception given by one of the directors of her parents’ museum, she stumbles across an old foe in the most surprising circumstances! His reappearance could mean only one thing: the Serpents of Chaos are back. Once again Theodosia will have to take on secret societies, evil curses, and dark magic too sinister to imagine, especially if it falls into the wrong hands. Blocked at every turn, Theodosia must rely on her own skill and cunning – along with a little help from her friends.


Robin LaFevers is an award-winning American children's book writer from California. She is the author of the Theodosia series and Nathaniel Fludd, Beastologist series. Robin grew up in Los Angeles, California and now resides on a small ranch in Southern California with her husband, two sons, dog and cat.


Archaeology and fantasy fans alike will find much to love in this magical tale chock-full of ancient Egyptian artifacts and details. Theodosia’s first-person narration is often very funny as she deals with the adults around her, and the plot is quick and multilayered like a well-wrapped mummy.

School Library Journal

The fast-paced action will appeal to young readers aged 10-14, and those who love ancient cultural intrigue and magical fantasy will be especially interested. I really enjoyed the journey into social life of the early 1900s with the complications for an intelligent female, but also the fascination of Ancient Egyptian mythology. This is exciting and full of potential interest. ( Those who enjoy the Percy Jackson series may also enjoy this mythology fantasy.) Ancient cultures are part of the Australian Year 7 curriculum, and the mythology of the ancient Egyptian culture makes for captivating content in this fantasy adventure.


This book is packed with action, fascinating facts about archaeology and one brave hero doing all she can to protect the world from danger.
