Lion in the Valley (Amelia Peabody, Book 4)

Lion in the Valley  - Elizabeth Peters A mix bag for this one. On one hand I liked the archaeological sides. I liked Ramses then again, I always like Ramses. I can still see Emerson as a earlier reincarnation of Daniel Jackson. I still like Amelia. The setting was familiar since Lion in the Valley is an almost sequel to The Mummy Case. Same pyramids, Dahshoor, same villain Sethos. This villain is so twisting evil moustaches that I really don't feel like he adds to the storyline. I know he's there for the long haul. I am just annoyed at the very cliché evilness of the character. The romantic young couple was blah in this one. So still three stars because Ramses rocked.
