Year of the Historical: Theodosia and the Eyes of Horus

Theodosia and the Eyes of HorusTheodosia and the Eyes of Horus R. L. LaFevers

This series is growing on me. In this latest installment, Theo is once again facing many obstacles. Theo and her brother Henry have stumbled upon an Emerald Tablet, and every Egyptian society is after the tablet, and Theo. Even more than the Egyptian societies, Theo has to deal with an actual Egyptian magician. She can't trust anyone but the Chosen Keepers, but she's lost access to them. They still think of her as a child and when she and Sticky Will refuses to go through Clive Fagenbush (whom she also doesn't trust). Theo and Sticky Will are all alone, Henry's possessed by an evil spirit, and Grandmother is forcing Theo to attend the funeral of a traitor. Really, it's just another day in the life of Theodosia Throckmorton.

I like all the different loyalties in this one, and how Theo is not always the greatest judge of character. I also really like the interplay between Theo and Henry. Henry's rather absent in this series, so I like it when he shows up. I continue to love Sticky Will, and very much liked his brothers. While he's often around for comedic value, we get to see more of Will's vulnerability in this volume and I appreciated that.
