rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another great read from Elizabeth Peters. Amelia Peabody Emerson is one of my most favorite characters in literature (I want to be her when I grow up). She doesn't disappoint in Children of the Storm. One of the major bonuses of this series is learning about the Egyptian culture and Egyptology. I find it especially interesting being set in the early 1900's. It is sad to think of all the unrest that has happened in Egypt since then.
This particular Amelia adventure is more of the same. But the twists and turns and mostly the characters make it well worth the effort.
If you haven't read this series I highly recommend it. They are not your typical "mystery" novels. They are smartly written and, as I stated before, are full of great information presented in a very non-boring way. But definitely start at the beginning with Crocodile on the Sandbank.
