A pair of signed THEODOSIA books by R. L. LaFevers

Donated by: R. L. LaFevers

Holy frijoles, zombie hordes! Robin LaFevers is one of the nicest people I've ever stalked online--uh, I mean, MET. Yes, met. But I have to admit that I'm mighty tempted to bid on this one myself. You'll be bidding on a pair of the Theodosia Throckmorton books--THEODOSIA AND THE EYES OF HORUS and THEODOSIA AND THE LAST PHAROAH. My only regret about these books is that they weren't out when I was a kid, because I was a huge Egyptphile.

Yes, I made up that word.

Prize details:
The winner will receive a signed paperback of THEODOSIA AND THE EYES OF HORUS and a signed paperback ARC (advance copy) of THEODOSIA AND THE LAST PHARAOH.

About THEODOSIA AND THE EYES OF HORUS:

Being able to detect black magic isn’t all tea and crumpets — and for Theodosia Throckmorton, it can be a decidedly tricky business! When Sticky Will drags Theo to a magic show featuring the Great Awi Bubu, she quickly senses there is more to the magician than he lets on, setting in motion a chain of events she never could have bargained for.

Meanwhile, back at the Museum of Legends and Antiquities, Henry is home for the spring holidays and makes an accidental discovery of an artifact that alchemists have been hunting for centuries. Soon, every black-cloaked occultist in London is trying to get their hands on it . . .

About THEODOSIA AND THE LAST PHARAOH:
In this fourth book in the series, Theodosia sets off to Egypt to return the Emerald Tablet—embedded with the knowledge of some of the ancient world’s most guarded secrets. Accompanied by her cat, Isis (smuggled along in a basket), Theo plans to return the artifact, then explore the mysteries surrounding her own birth and oh, yes— help her mother dig up treasures on her archeological expedition.

But nothing ever works out as planned, especially when a precious treasure appears suddenly, and then just as suddenly disappears . . .

When the Serpents of Chaos get involved, Theo finds she’s digging up a lot more than she expected!

About R.L. LaFevers:
R. L. LaFevers (Robin Lorraine when she’s in really big trouble) grew up surrounded by shelves of old dusty books and a passel of brothers. 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. She is the author of over fourteen books for young readers, including THEODOSIA AND THE SERPENTS OF CHAOS, (Houghton Mifflin, 2007) which received starred reviews and was a Junior Library Guild selection, a Booksense Summer Pick, and nominated for the Malice Domestic’s Agatha Award, and the NATHANIEL FLUDD, BEASTOLOGIST series. Her first young adult novel, DARK MERCY, will be published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in Spring of 2012. She currently lives with her husband and a demonic cat in Southern California and spends her days gazing longingly at ancient artifacts or wallowing in old forgotten texts. She can also be found blogging over at GeekMom, or at the Shrinking Violet website, a resource and support group for introverted authors.
