9780810996649: The Pharaoh's Secret

Filled with intrigue, surprises, and the author’s original illustrations, this novel skillfully weaves history with a personal story full of heartache and family tensions that will entice and enthrall readers.

 

When Talibah and her younger brother, Adom, accompany their father to Egypt, they become involved in a mystery surrounding an ancient, lost pharaoh—a rare queen ruler. Someone has tried to make it appear as if she never existed! The queen needs Talibah to help her and her high priest, Senenmut, reclaim their rightful place in history. 


Exotic locales, mysterious strangers, and a sinister archaeologist round out an adventure that is full of riddles, old tales, and, most surprisingly of all, a link to Talibah’s and Adom’s mother, who died mysteriously.

From Booklist:

Fourteen-year-old Talibah and her younger brother, Adom, are accompanying their Egyptologist father on a trip to the country of their ancestors. But as soon as they arrive in Cairo, odd things start happening. Talibah is given a strange artifact and hears a voice imploring, “Find him.” And when they meet Rashid, their father’s friend and an archaeologist, Talibah has visceral feelings of fear and dislike. The plot is clunky—the children’s father allows Rashid to take the duo to the Valley of the Kings for several days, because otherwise how could all the scary things happen? Moreover, the time-travel elements are complicated. It is the female pharaoh Hatshepsut who’s trying to reach Talibah. Hatshepsut wants the soul of her steward and paramour to rest in peace, but forces in the past and present risk all to prevent that. Add in the connection of the children’s dead mother, and there’s a lot going on. But Talibah makes a good narrator, and readers who enjoy a mystery seen through the lens of time will find plenty of thrills. Grades 5-8. --Ilene Cooper
