This is the fourth book in the Theodosia series and each one is better then the last. Theodosia can sense curses and black magic on artifacts. Theodosia's father is the head curator at a London museum, so she stays busy. Theodosia's mother goes to Egypt for an archaeological dig. Theodosia is going as well, to return two priceless artifacts to a The Brotherhood, a secret Egyptian society. The Serpents of Chaos have followed Theodosia from London. They want revenge and the artifacts.
This is the fourth book in the series, each one is better then the last. They are so much fun, I love Theodosia. LaFevers writing is continually strong. I love how well the storyline is moving along and the many layers of Theodosia. As with the other three, this one could easily stand on its own. Though I would highly recommend starting from the beginning.
