Pharaoh’s Tomb picks up immediately where A Rare Gift leaves off. In the opening chapter, Susan is meeting with Mrs. Coleman, the previous keeper of the crystal. With somewhat greater understanding of how the crystal works and what it’s meant to do, Susan is whisked away to Ancient Egypt, where her crystal disappears entirely. Unless she uses all her cunning and intelligence, she will miss her one opportunity to return to her own time and place. Of course, being a princess in Egypt has its perks, and leaving her new friends will be sad. What will Susan decide?

The length of this book allows the author greater room to explore the history, culture, and customs of Ancient Egypt although Susan’s six-month stay does drag somewhat before the conflict that ultimately takes Susan home. This is a fairly suspenseful novel; a few scenes are violent, and Susan’s enemies are genuinely menacing. In the end, though, all turns out well.
