    1. This series is an adventure, an education, and an utter delight, but this book was something above and beyond. It was a coming into it's own, a growing up for the series as well as the protagonist. It is at once an ending and a beginning as all coming-of-age tales are. In this case it's more of a coming-in-one's-own and not merely accepting, but owning oneself completely - foibles, peculiarities, and all. How many adults could do with this lesson?I have to say that in all of my reading, and havi [...]


    2. This series is delightful, insightful, and addicting!This is the fourth book in the Theodosia Throckmorton series. In this book Theodosia travels with her mother to Egypt, the land of her birth, on the pretense of accompanying her mother on a dig. Secretly Theodosia is set on fulfilling a promise she made to return an artifact, while trying to stay one step ahead of the Serpents of Chaos. As usual, things don't quite go according to plan.I can't wait to see what adventures Theodosia will be invo [...]



    3. Theodosia is returning to the land of her birth. Egypt! Who cares if she has a very important mission to return some items to a secret society bent on hiding artifacts of the Gods in the desert. It's Egypt and she's on an expedition with her mom. Take care of the Orb and Rae and the Emerald Tablet and spend the rest of the time doing what she's always dreamed of doing, archeology! Obviously, with her pet cat Isis by her side, despite her mother's protestations. When they arrive in Cairo though, [...]


    4. At times it may feel as though Theodosia is not the 11-year-old child, especially if you do not know many 11-year-olds who have long held particular (possibly pervasive) interests. Then there is the fact that her parents are intelligent, and as calamitously curious as Theo is, her knowledge and abilities aren’t too stretched. If anything, her ability to surprise and impress the adults in her world is an encouragement for young readers to brush up on their own brilliance. But ever there is the [...]


    5. This is the fourth book in the Theodosia Thockmorten series by R.L. LaFevers. This was my favorite book in the series so far, it really took the story to another level.Theodosia has journeyed with her mother to Egypt supposedly to help her mom on an archaeological dig. Theodosia's real purpose it to return the Emerald tablet and other important artifacts to the protection of the Brotherhood so that they don't fall into the evil hands of the Serpents of Chaos.I really enjoyed this book. Theodosia [...]


    6. All right, I admit freely that in the end, I did like this book. But I got a little worried sometime in the middle. I can lavish praise upon the character of Theodosia all day long. I love her. I've probably read the Serpents of Chaos twenty times. But when I read this book, I was put off by three things: 1) Some of my favorite characters whom I love dearly are missing. i.e. Will, Henry, Fagenbush etc. 2) Some of the stuff that happens doesn't exactly make me desperate to find out more. I just w [...]


    7. I received this as an advanced reader's copy to give a review on, and I must say this was a fantastic book! This was the first of this series that I have read, and the author did a fabulous job making sure that the reader could follow the entire story without becoming lost and feeling this something was missing. The necessary back story was explained without giving away all of the surprises that I will get when I go back and read the books that came before this one (trust me, Miss Theodosia has [...]


    8. OK. What do I say without giving too much away.1) SO fun. On a day I was stuck at home fighting nasty allergies I distracted myself for several hours reading. Once I started I literally couldn't stop.2) Now I will be distracting myself trying to figure out a fun celebration to have at school to introduce more kids to Theodosia--which is not to say she doesn't already have fans but hey. Some sort of Egyptian party would always attract more. (I will say this, though. This is not an easy read--woul [...]


    9. Theodosia and the Last Pharaoh by R. L. LaFevers takes Theodosia to Egypt. She's convinced her mother to let her see a dig but her real goal is to turn a dangerous artifact.The journey though quickly reveals dangers entrenched in the very places Theodosia has gone for help. To make matters worse she's been befriended by a donkey boy who has as fantastic a tale as her own. His destiny and hers seem tied up together.It was fun to see Thedosia finally back in Egypt. She learns along the way about h [...]


    10. Love these books! It ended like that may be it for Theodosia. But I hope not. There was some reference to the fact her gift was not limited to Egyptian artifacts, I had hoped her travels would go somewhere else?


    11. LeFevers always provides an excellent balance of detail and action to give Theodosia's adventures a wonderful tang. A perfect addition to the series. Theodosia is never boring!



    12. This is the forth book in the Theodosia series and I feel like it is the best so far. Theodosia convinced her archaeologist mother to take her to Egypt to help find the temple of Thutmose III. But Theodora is really planning on returning two powerful artifacts she found in London with the help of the Brothrhood of Chosen Keepers. She also hopes to learn the circumstances of her own birth while her parents were working on an archaeological expedition in Luxor 11 years ago.Many characters have app [...]


    13. I enjoyed the series up until this book. For some reason I lost interest. I kept putting it aside hoping I would get back to itt to three years later, I still can't sit down and finish it. So I'm just going to call it. I did not finish this at about 55%.I can't even put my finger on whyI lost interest. Theodosia and her mother are in Egypt. A different setting and a promise of new adventure should have been enough for me to turn pages. However, I was bored, and I can't tolerate being bored in a [...]


    14. The final part in one of the best kid's series I have read in ages. I know I will read them all again and again; for the fun, for the magic and Egyptology, for the action and adventure and mostly for Theo, who is honestly! (as she would say) just a wonderful character with so much to teach all of us, at any age. And also for Isis (the cat who is more than a cat - but all cat owners think that and perhaps it is true!)




    15. 3.5 out of 5 stars Sadly, I did not enjoy this as much as the previous ones. I'm hoping for an improvement in the next book, though!



    16. Book 4 in the Theodosia Throckmorton series, and the best one by far. I think I liked this book so much because the plot was much more focused, from the very first chapter when we arrive with Theodosia and her mother on a hot, dusty train to Cairo. The author’s prose has never been better, either in bringing 1907 Egypt to life, or in developing a plot that has by this point in the series become a bit byzantine. But by the simple expedient of a list that Theodosia writes in her journal, the aut [...]


    17. Theodosia and the Last Pharaoh is the fourth book in this impressive and intelligent middle grade series. It’s also my favorite book thus far. In the past, Theodosia has been mostly confined to the Antiquities Museum of London, where her father is the curator, or the streets of London, but this book takes place entirely in Egypt. This brings a whole new facet and feel to the book, making the Egyptian magic tangible in a way that it hasn’t been in the previous books.With the new setting, come [...]


    18. Disclaimer: I was in some sort of weird head space when I started this book and I think that contributed to how hard it was for me to connect to the characters and events in the beginning. So you know, take that into consideration. Because once I shook off my funk, I liked the book quite a bit.Sooooo I'm coming in at book 4 and I really don't know who's who or what's going on. Theodosia is spunky (in a good way) and her special abilities make her a little odd (in a good way I mean, she is saving [...]


    19. Theodosia and the Last Pharaoh is the fourth and, currently, last volume in R.L. LaFevers’ series about Theodosia Throckmorton, the eleven-year-old daughter of two British Egyptologists, who is able to sense magic and remove curses from ancient artifacts. In this installment, Theodosia travels to Egypt with her mother—an archaeologist who is nevertheless completely unaware of all things magical—to return a sacred artifact to the ancient order of the Eyes of Horus. As usual, she is pursued [...]


    20. My favorite book in the series. If another book is never released, I think this is a satisfactory ending. Many things come to a conclusion, wrapped and tied up nicely, but there is enough left to let your imagination wander and ponder what could be the next adventure in Theodosia's life.This book and the previous one really felt like the young adult books they all ought to be. The plots were tighter, more intriguing and captivating. The characters seemed deeper. It was great to watch them grow a [...]


    21. I love the list that opened the book so we were reminded of what we were coming into. Still I didn't enjoy the opener as much as the others (especially compared to the last book) but I did enjoy Professor Quillings, head of the Brotherhood of Chosen Keepers Research and Development branch. Okayybe it wasn't that bad of an opener. There was a homing beacon watch and curse repelling device, gloves made of wax coated threads and a pen with a curse pellet inside and a silver compact with ground up s [...]


    22. In this book, Theodosia accompanies her mother to Egypt to try to locate the temple of Thutmose III—at least that is what her mother believed was the reason for the trip. In book three, Theodosia had promised Awi Bubu, the magician, that she would return two sacred relics, the Orb of Ra and the Emerald Tablet, to the wedjadeen, protectors of ancient Egyptian artifacts. That is the true purpose of her return to Egypt, but Theodosia also wishes to learn the circumstances of her birth in Egypt to [...]


    23. Given that the author is now writing YA books, I think this is the last Theodosia novel. A shame, because the character is one of my favorites that I've met; but fitting, given this novel's title and story arc. Go out with a bang: a novel set entirely in Egypt, with Theo's emotional conflicts with her parents augmented, separated from her usual help of Sticky Will, Wigmere, Stilton, &c. Highly, highly satisfying. The artifact in (view spoiler)[Major Grindle's office (hide spoiler)] set up fo [...]


    24. In this fourth book of the series, eleven year old Theodosia Throckmorton has returned to Egypt. She hopes to fulfill the promise she made to Awi Bubu to return the Emerald Tablet to the wedjadeen, a secret group charged with protecting ancient artifacts and the magic they hold. Then she can "get back to normal" on an archaeological dig with her mother and maybe even learn a little more about her birth. But nothing is normal for Theo, and the Serpents of Chaos are causing even bigger problems he [...]


    25. Theodosia's latest adventure has her returning to her family's former dig site in Egypt to fulfill her deathbed promise (well, okay, almost deathbed, but it still counts even if they don't die, right?) to return a couple of very magical ancient artifacts to the group that protect their potentially dangerous secrets. Should be straightforward enough, & then Theodosia will get to help her mother do some actual archaeology! If only that were true. If only that were ever true for Theodosia. Her [...]
