Carole Kelly rated it it was amazing I thoroughly enjoyed this second book in the series.
I felt I was Susan and feeling all here motions as she is trapped in Egypt and unable to return home.
I enjoyed the characters even the one person I didn't really like.
Egypt has always fascinated me especially during the time of the Pharaohs and the marvel
of their tombs with all the passages and protection built into them.
This book introduces the beginning of the crystals and their special gifts which I found quite
interesting. I can't wait to see where Susan goes on her next crystal adventure!!

In this book Susan travels back in time to ancient Egypt and the creation of the crystals.
She is adopted by an evil magician. Eventually, she makes friends with the grand vizier's son,
but is instantly despised by Neferure, daughter of the ruler.
I appreciate Ludlow's ability to entertain and educate me about many aspects of life at that
time. The book has plenty of action and suspense.

Review of Crystal Journals: Pharaoh’s Tomb
I read Rosemary Ludlow’s first book A Rare Gift, the first of the series last year and was impressed and delighted by the interesting characters and the nice, clean well written prose. I enjoyed this second of the series, Pharaoh’s Tomb every bit as much. Rosemary Ludlow has once again written a riveting book in the further adventures of Susan Sinclair, a gusty, brash girl who is given a crystal which propels her into travels back in time.
This time the magic crystal takes Susan to Egypt where the fun continues.
I have been fascinated by ancient Egypt since grade school and I loved this book not just for the finely drawn characters but also for the delicious tidbits of history of ancient Egypt―youth braids , how tombs were ‘booby trapped’ to discourage theft, papyrus boats, scrolls, and ornate jewelry. Pharaoh’s Tomb is well researched and contains a number of intriguing details about the culture and society of ancient Egypt.
The climax is dramatic and satisfying; the denouement shows Susan’s gentle and compassionate nature.
I especially enjoyed how Susan learned to speak ancient Egyptian- a nasty potion is forced down her throat. If only such a potion really existed! I would be first in line, no matter how nasty it tasted. No more tiresome study of the subjunctive and irregular verbs.
I was glad to read that the author is working on three more books in the series. Keep them coming, Rosemary!
From the Author
Ancient Egypt has a culture that spanned over four thousand years and ended around two thousand years ago.
What this means is that you could read a vast amount about Ancient Egypt, and it wouldn't agree with the time
to which Susan traveled.For example, there are no pyramids in this story. Susan never sees a pyramid, and yet
for a large part of Egyptian history, they were a very important part of life.
Some of the names I have used have become the most common words in our time, but were actually introduced
by later Greek pharaohs. In fact Pharaoh is a Greek term for the king but has become so common that I have
used it here. Nile is also the Greek name for the great river which features so prominently in all Ancient
