Review by riverwillow
An interesting instalment in the series which sees Amelia, Emerson and Ramses caught up in an adventure in an homage to Amelia's favourite author Rider Haggard. Rather than excavating in Egypt as usual the Emersons decide to venture into Sudan, they've also agreed to search for Willie Forth and his wife, who've been missing for more than a decade. Along the way they're deserted by their servants and end up staying in a hidden city with a lost civilisation. A fun addition to the series, and we may have finally found the one thing that reduces Ramses to speechlessness.
