Guardian of the Horizon is a worthy sequel to The Last Camel Died at Noon. I suggest reading the prior book first since much of the plot of this book is built on previous incidents and relationships. Although there is enough of a back story in Guardian of the Horizon to allow it to stand on its own.
The Emersons return to The Lost Oasis where they are once again called to duty to help overthrow the usurper of the Holy City, and restore the rightful king to the throne. The story is full of zany characters and screwball antics, and there are loads of laughs along the way.
The book starts out a bit slow, but in the end you can't help but fall in love with the madcap Emersons. If you're a diehard fan, you'll fall in love with them all over again. The truly talented narrator brings each charater to life in this gem of the Amelia Peabody series.
Four stars for being one of my favorite books in the series.
