Theodosia Throckmorton is in a fix. Allowed to attend a reception given by one of the directors of her parents museum, she stumbles across Mr. Tetley of the British Museum in most unusual circumstances! Since Theo has last seen him in a showdown in an ancient Egyptian tomb, 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 will have to rely on her own skill and cunning along with a little help from the most unexpected places.

This book, the second in the series, has far greater character development than the first. Like the third book it is more of a mystery/mythology children's novel.
This is one of my daughter's favourite series. It is fabulously written and performed. Theodosia is a fantastic protagonist, the kind of little girl who is a real positive role model. She is smart, thoughtful of others, and Charlotte Parry really brings her world alive with her magnificent performance.
"Oh the voice!"
Whilst I thoroughly enjoyed the book and have bought the next one already, there were times that the narrator's voice REALLY grated. She would do the most absurd voices for some characters and she has an odd intonation to begin with. I know there are some voices that you can't listen to - I have encountered narrators like that myself, this young lady is JUST on the verge of my taste, please listen to a sample first.
