Theodosia and the Eyes of Horus by R. L. LaFevers
While at the museum, Theodosia and her brother, Henry, find a special tablet hidden inside an ancient Egyptian stele. Theodosia learns that the tablet is a map to artifacts that were once possessed by Egyptian gods—like the Staff of Osiris and the Orb of Ra. Anyone in possession of these artifacts would gain supernatural powers and yield unimaginable destruction. Once word gets out about the tablet, the Serpents of Chaos and the Arcane Order of the Black Sun all want it for their own and they won’t let Theodosia stand in their way.
Theodosia and the Eyes of Horus mirrors the first two books in action, pacing, wit, and adventure. This time, however, her family is openly threatened by the Serpents of Chaos. Even though Theodosia and Henry don’t always get along, she still knows and loves her brother and will protect him and her parents, even from dangers that they don’t know exist. LaFevers' writing is crisp, suspenseful, smart, and humorous. This series will not disappoint readers who long for a great adventure with a courageous heroine. The next book in the series is Theodosia and the Last Pharaoh.
