This is the first book in a series that I love! I have never read the books and have only listened to Amelia Peabody rise off the page in her amazing adventures. I am the stay-at-home mom of several children with disabilities and these books have helped me keep my sense of humor and my sanity. Cooking and cleaning are not so dull when I can push a button and be at Amelia's side in Egypt exploring the perils and pitfalls of the tombs. I love the characters, the plots and the machinations of Amelia as she works with her "councils of war" to solve the mysteries. Her machinations and the interplay of the characters only get better in future books. Two is not my favorite, but I won't miss any of them. With the addition of a handsome rogue of a villain and a small addition in the "brother of demons" this series is almost complete. They also deliciously satisfy the hopeless romantic in me, with their modest, English reserve. I don't have to worry about what my children will hear. You have to listen to these books. Barbara Rosenblat is my all-time favorite female narrator. She does an exquisite job. I never have to wonder who says what. I'm so pleased to own this excellent audio book for my very own.
