Theodosia Throckmorton enjoys her life essentially living in a vast, shabby museum in London with her slightly irritable curator father &, occasionally, her archaeologist adventuress mother & annoying younger brother (often at a dig & boarding school, respectively). However, there's one complication - she can sense the powerful & often dangerous curses that ancient magicians have put on many of the Egyptian artifacts surrounding her family. Theodosia seems to be the only person in her family or the museum who has this ability, so she spends a great deal of her time trying to protect her loved ones. Things get complicated when her mother returns from Egypt with a very dangerous, very cursed artifact called the Heart of Egypt that threatens to destroy England itself - unless Theodosia, along with the help of a young pickpocket street urchin, can stop it. Extremely fun with a great girl protagonist, a lot of adventure, & a fantastic setting in late-Victorian England.
