The Emersons' journals chronicling the 1907-8 season have been
discovered, revealing hitherto unknown events from Amelia
Peabody's remarkable career! Banned from the Valley of the
Kings, their excavation at an abrupt end, Amelia and her
distinguished husband, Emerson, have returned to England with
their son, Ramses, and foster daughter, Nefret. Ramses is secretly
in love with Nefret and about to flee to Germany to escape
temptation. But a mysterious visitor provokes a change in plans
for Ramses and the others. After a decade without contact, Prince
Tarek from the Lost Oasis has written to the Emersons, asking for
help. His only surviving son is ill, and his throne may be
threatened . . . Guided by only a crumbling map that took them
to the Oasis a decade earlier, the Peabody-Emerson clan head for
the Sudan. There they confront forces secretly arrayed against
them; there Ramses must face up to his feelings for Nefret.

In Guardian of the Horizon Amelia Peabody and her husband Emerson, along with their son Ramses and foster daughter Nefret, are summoned back to the Lost Oasis, a hidden stronghold in the western desert whose existence they discovered many years ago (in The Last Camel Died at Noon) and have kept secret from the entire world, including their fellow Egyptologists. According to Merasen, the brother of the ruling monarch, their old friend Prince Tarek is in grave danger and needs their help. However, it's not until they retrace their steps to the Oasis, with its strange mixture of Meroitic and Egyptian cultures, that they learn the real reason for their journey. There's no better company on an archaeological expedition than the Father of Curses and the Lady Doctor, their beautiful Anglo-Egyptian ward and Ramses, the Demon Brother who loves her. If you haven't met the indomitable Amelia yet, this intriguing tale is a great place to start. --Jane Adams, Amazon.com
