11-year-old Theodosia Throckmorton is confronted with the sinister cult "Serpents of Chaos" and must use her wits and vast knowledge of Ancient Egyptian magic and curses (her father is, after all, the Curator and her mother the resident archaeologist of the Museum of Legends and Antiquities, and Theodosia most often spends her days ferreting out all the cursed artifacts in the museum's nooks and crannies, since her parents very often will forget about her). This time, though, she must deal with her annoying and stuffy grandmother's attempts to coop her up with evil governesses, while figuring out why mummies are randomly showing up the museum's front lobby, while dealing with the legendary staff of the Egyptian god Osiris (who may or may not have been a myth), chasing down an ancient statue come to life and creating havoc throughout London, and a rogue cult's sudden decision that Theodosia is the reincarnated ancient Egyptian goddess Isis.
