About this Book

Beyond the Book

Print Review

R. L. LaFevers has been fascinated by libraries and museums ever since she first set foot in one. She's pretty sure it's because of all the ancient mysteries sitting there on the shelves, just waiting to be discovered. She has also spent a large portion of her life being told she was making up things that weren't there, which only proves she was destined to write fiction.

When she's not gazing longingly at ancient artifacts or wallowing in old forgotten texts, she's busy trying to keep one step ahead of her two teenage sons. She is the author of the Lowthar's Blade trilogy, two standalone novels, The Falcon Master and Werewolf Rising; and Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos.

She lives with her sons, husband and a demonic cat in Southern California.


Interesting links for further exploration

  • The Theodosia Throckmorton website, which includes plentiful links to other websites with information about Egypt suitable for children. Three of the best of these links are:
     
  • AncientEgypt.co.uk - including a who's who of the Egyptian pantheon and the creation story of how they came to be.
     
  • Egyptianmyths.net - ancient Egyptian myths, hieroglyphs and more.
     
  • KidsKonnect.com - A repository of links to a huge wealth of websites suitable for children. Links from the Ancient Egypt page are grouped under hieroglyphics, gods, mummies, The Nile, pharaohs, pyramids and other.
