Barbara Mertz, also known as Elizabeth Peters and Barbara Michaels, in her own words: "I spent the earliest years of my life in a small town in Illinois-and when I say "small," I mean fewer than 2000 people. It was an idyllic sort of existence, I suppose, except for a few minor disadvantages like a nation-wide depression and the fact that my home town had no library. Luckily for me both my parents were readers. From my mother and a wonderful great-aunt I acquired most of the childhood classics and a few classic mysteries. My father's tastes were somewhat more eclectic

Children of the Storm: An Amelia Peabody Novel of Suspense. Written by Elizabeth Peters. Narrated by Barbara Rosenblat. However, the theft of valuable antiquities from the home of a friend - including a magnificent gold bracelet adorned with the image of the goddess Hathor - causes great concern. Ramses's encounter with a woman costumed in the veil and gold crown of Hathor herself only deepens the mystery. With those in her circle suddenly plagued by a series of "accidents," Amelia attempts to connect these troubling threads into a pattern. But her investigation is setting her on a collision course with an adversary more formidable than any she has ever encountered.

Children of the Storm" (Amelia 15) by Elizabeth Peters refers generation weathered by the dark turbulence of WW1, and an Egyptian horoscope predicting trouble. A plethora of Egyptologists has accumulated in the long series, too many blood and marriage relations to the original, large of brain, body and vocabulary, parasol-wielder Amelia Peabody. Her long-winded pompous narrative style, reminiscent of inspiring Sir Henry Rider Haggard (King Solomon's Mines), and after-the-fact premonitions are funny

I love anything written by Elizabeth Peters. She's unique and I've made it a point to collect all of her novels but the Emerson Family Story is just fabulous and has great insightful humor in it. I've enjoyed sharing in the growth of the family over the decades and especially the journey of Rameses from his precious years to being the father of his own precious son. Emerson is a delight as the male head of this delightful family of adventures. Emilia is Emilia. She's the linch pin and glue that makes this family what it is.
It's worth reading this book in the series and all of the ones before it. Ms. Peters found her true calling as a writer. We will miss her.

I have read almost all of the Amelia Peabody mysteries, and they are all wonderful. The books have strong characters, equally male and female. Begin at the beginning of the series, "The Crocodile in the Sandbank". My daughter turned me on to these mysteries. After "The Crocodile in the Sandbank" comes, in order: The Curse of the Pharoahs; The Mummy Case; Lion in the Valley; The Deeds of the Disturber; The Last Camel Died at Noon; The Snake, the Crocodile and the Dog; The Hippopatamus Pool; Seeing A Large Cat; The Ape Who Guards the Balance; The Falcon at the Portal; He Shall Thunder in the Sky; Lord of the Silent; The Golden ONe; Children of the Storm; The Serpent on the Crown; omb of the Golden Bird; and A River in the Sky. Children of the Storm was one of my favorites because, now we have the children of Ramses and Nefret introduced. Some books are better than others, and I have skipped around, but if one ventures too far off course, one misses out on the sequence of character developments. Definately read The Crocodile in the Sandbank and then The Curse of the Pharoahs. Then, I skipped to the Lion in the Valley and The Last Camel Died at Noon. Read all of the reviews for each book, and it will help you decide. Get ready to get hooked! I adore buying from Amazon. Always delivered prompt and in great condition. Also, I don't know how I got by without my Kindle!

As with all of Ms Peters' Amelia Peabody series, the books are delightfully written but in very proper English, as was spoken in the Victorian and Edwardian period. Makes you realize how poorly we speak today. As for subject matter, it's the ongoing story of the Emerson family and their adventures in Egypt. I highly recommend this series; as the author explains, she did not know, when writing the first in the series, that the books would become so popular so there are some inconsistencies in the first book that are 'corrected' as the story unfolds. For lovers of the wonders of Egypt and its history, this series is bound to catch and hold your attention. Wonderful!!!!

In truth, my five stars are intended for a subset of the general reading population, those who have been enjoying the continuing saga of this most peculiar and lovable Egyptological (and much else) family. In my experience, people either get a kick out of the quasi-Victorian tongue-in-cheek flavor of these adventures and dote on their favorite characters, or they don't have the patience or whimsy for them. I am unabashedly in the pro-Amelia (and Ramses and Emerson and Sethos and so on) group, and I loved this book. Unlike many "mainstream" mysteries, these books will not depress you but are excellent company in a comfortable chair, preferably with a cup of "the genial beverage" nearby. (This is not necessarily tea -- Amelia clarifies that when sufficiently stressed, her choice of genial beverage is a whiskey-and-soda.) I wouldn't say it is the very best in the whole series, but it is definitely in the top half. I enjoyed it very much, and if you like this series, you will too. Besides, who could resist Emerson as a grandpa? I also have a strong amateur interest in archaeology and always value the Egyptological tidbits this knowledgable author shares along the way. I also appreciate her essentially compassionate, constructive and anti-authoritarian worldview. These stories are entertaining, but they're not fluff.

We continue to entangle everything. Can they possibly get out of this mess? It is interesting to see the interactions when they’re all back together again and try to figure it out. Well worth reading!
Nothing personal
I can't help but be a little sad that the series is about to come to a close, but this was a rollicking good adventure, one that kept me on my toes and kept me guessing. I wish they never had to end!
Elastic Skunk
It's so good! Only 34 pages to go and then onto the next one. The author draws on her vast knowledge of Egyptian history, both ancient and contemporary to her characters, and paints a beautiful, yet rousing story.
I cannot praise one book of this series without being astonished by the prolific brilliance of the creator of Amelia Peabody and her world.

Knowing there will be an ending someday increases my gratitude for all her philosophical remarks and humorous handling of intricate relationships and characters. Barbara Mertz has no equal in her lifetime or mine...
