theodosia-and-the-serpents-of-chaosSynopsis:  Cursed artifacts, German spies, museum traitors, and secret organizations – what’s not to like?  Theodosia is a young British girl who can see the black magic and curses on the objects that her archaeologist parents bring home from their digs in Egypt.  There is a secret plot to destroy the British Empire (and possibly a whole lot more), which Theodosia must overcome using her unique talents.

Rachel:  I think this book is for people who like museums or work in them.  They will also have to like Britain a little in this book.  This book was good.  There is also a series out there too.  My favorite part was when Theodosia talked about the curses she was seeing.

Ben:  Really cool. Kind of boring at the beginning, though.  I had an awesome time reading about headstrong Theodosia.  She always gets her way.  I hope that everyone else will love this book.

Mom:  I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  There is a wonderful flavor about Theodosia.  She has pluck, spirit, and a sense of adventure, but she is definitely full of common sense.  I must add that there is one swear word on page 274, so use your best judgement there.  Other than that, nothing else is objectionable.  We looked up the name Theodosia on the Social Security website, and it hasn’t been popular for 100 years, if it ever was at all.
