Traveling by sea, scaling pyramids, exploring tombs I loved that this novel took our beloved characters so far away from their world of drawing rooms, carriages, and assembly rooms. It was entertaining to see them on an adventure of this magnitude!

The Darcy's have been living blissfully in marriage for 15 years and have added 3 boys and 3 girls to their family. A younger brother of Colonel Fitzwilliam brings with him an enthusiasm for Egypt and entices the Darcys to go with him on an adventure of a lifetime. However, all is not perfect. There's this doll the youngest Darcy, Margaret seems a trifle obsessed with....or is the doll obsessed with her?? Hmmm.... Margaret and the doll play a pivotal role in this tale and you'll have to read to see why.
I love the Mummy movie series and this story took me back. Ancient curses, the Nile, the pyramids, this story satisfied my love of all things Mummy and ancient Egyptian mythology.
But it also had the best of Pride and Prejudice. There was love between our dear couple, but also arguments as would be normal with their personalities and so many years together. Their children are just as dynamic as their parents and I like that the author gave them as much TLC as their parents. In fact, all the new characters (from Edward Fitzwilliam to Sophie Lucas to artist Paul Inkworthy) received equal billing without sacrificing Lizzy and Darcy, which is a difficult feat to accomplish. Many authors of sequels devote so much time to new and minor characters I feel bereft of Lizzy and Darcy. Not so in this story. We get a chance to love them all and the story is never boring.
If I had to nitpick it would be the role of Wickham and Lydia. Somehow they make it on this adventure and ruin things for a while for the Darcys (because of course, right?). Well I feel he wasn't necessary to the plot. It was okay but unnecessary. Also, considering the big build up you see with the doll and Margaret I expected more of a climax, of which I didn't really see much of. It kind of just resolved itself. So definitely anticlimactic. The epilogue led us to believe Aahotep (the spirit of the doll or however you wanna look at it) never does leave which was a bit eerie. But still....no real climax.
Nevertheless I loved the story and rushed to get a paperback copy. I love different stories and this one certainly fit the bill!
