A Treacherous Curse
But the perils of an ancient curse are not the only challenges Veronica must face as sordid details and malevolent enemies emerge from Stoker’s past. Caught in a tangle of conspiracies and threats—and thrust into the public eye by an enterprising new foe—Veronica must separate facts from fantasy to unravel a web of duplicity that threatens to cost Stoker everything.
This is the third book in this series. The first book took me a bit to warm up to the characters and the story. Yet, with this book I was able to jump right in and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Speedwell and Stoker make a great team. They are different from each other but that is what makes them work well together. Stoker is a bit more formal and Speedwell is more adventurous. Again, this is where they balance each other out like ying and yang.
The history and mystery surrounding Egyptian history was fun. Kind of like the first Mummy movie with a dash of Scooby Do. When the gang found themselves tangling with a mummy. Yet, this book is more studious and not as light hearted as Scooby Do. What I will say is that the adventure and pace did not pick up until about a third of the way into the story but then it was smooth reading all the way until the ending.
