This book captured my attention, and kept it. There are so many things to love about this book! Let's start with Theodosia.
Theodosia is a strong female character, who's quick wit and intelligence get her out of the stickiest of situations. Her wit and view on the world around her make this book interesting and funny. In my opinion, she's a lot more intelligent than half the adults in this book!
Another thing is the Egyptian mythology. It's incredibly accurate and definitely well-researched. It gives this book a magical and mysterious feel.
And of course, the 20th century London atmosphere is another upside.
To anyone who loves mythology, mystery, and a quick-witted heroine, this book is for you.
