The Theodosia Throckmorten series, set in Edwardian England, features magic, mummies and a female lead character. After a somewhat shaky start, the series improved over the next few books to include better developed secondary characters and an interesting overarching plot.
The series’ fourth entry, Theodosia and the Last Pharaoh, is due out in April 2011. I’ve written a review for it over on the review site, Triple Take. (We all reviewed book #1 last year.)
