This is most useful, as she spends her life fighting curses in the London Museum of Legends and Antiquities, where her father is head curator of a vast collection of Egyptian artefacts and mummies.

Theo must summon all her courage and cunning to fight the rising chaos and restore the amulet to its rightful place...
