Summary
Theodosia Throckmorton has the ability to sense curses that are bound to ancient artifacts -- which comes in handy, since her mother is an archaeologist and her father is head curator of London's Museum of Legends and Antiquities. When Theo's mother brings the legendary Heart of Egypt amulet home from a king's tomb, Theo discovers that it carries a curse horrible enough to start an unimaginable war between two secret societies, both of which are determined to steal the amulet. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
