Sequel to Walking in the Fields of the Blessed. When 15-year-old Katty goes to Egypt for the summer to work on an archaeological project involving animal mummies preserved by the ancient Egyptians, she thinks the biggest problem she will face is adjusting to her new step-family. At their oasis site, the interests of the archaeological team and modern-day tomb robbers soon collide as Katty, her mum and her step-sister Alice find themselves facing a danger they hadn’t bargained for. Can Bastet, the cat goddess and protector of women and children, rescue them from entombment with millions of mummies?
