Carole Kelly Apr 28, 2017 Goodreads. Carole Kelly rated it "it was amazing. I felt I was Susan and feeling all her emotions 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!!
resourcelinks - Dec.2017 (Leslie Vermeer) 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. A Rare Gift and Pharaoh’s Tomb are good picks.

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.
