So yes while I was certainly expecting Victoria Holt's 1973 novel Curse of the Kings to once again be totally formulaic in many if not most ways and that there would also and in all likelihood be rather stereotypical attitudes toward Egypt and all things Egyptian presented by the author and which indeed and not at all surprisingly has certainly turned out to generally be the case I also do have to admit that in Curse of the Kings I was pretty much and very unpleasantly flabbergasted regarding both the first person narrator main protagonist Judith Osmond and the supposedly oh so brilliant and esteemed archaeologist Tybalt Travers the main love interest and hero of Curse of the Kings whom Judith marries and then accompanies to Egypt and of course and absolutely how Victoria Holt has chosen to depict and approach them For not only does Judith Osmond kind of present an in my opinion pretty odd ball melange of an almost blue stocking like uest for education combined with a rather overtly manifested and not all that realistic overly and exaggeratedly passionate nature and which just does not really seem to adeuately and comfortably fit in with her always present hunger for enlightenment and knowledge Tybalt Travers himself he also is shown by Victoria Holt as being at best frustratingly cold and undemonstrative and at worst totally and icily calculating and thus not really what I would consider a successful partner for Judith And while I certainly have not actively despised Curse of the Kings and have also and definitely managed to at least be able to tolerate Victoria Holt's stereotyping of Egyptians as a sign of the times even if it does make me personally uncomfortable I eually cannot really with a heroine I have found a bit iffy at best and a totally cold fish like and also rather majorly tedious hero consider than two stars for Curse of the Kings

Victoria Holt ☆ 2 Summary

Hat it was the curse at work Then overnight her life changed There was an unexpected inheritance Then Tybalt a young archaeologist and the man she adored ask. During these difficult times I have found some comfort in reading some of my old favorite authors I started reading Victoria Holt books in my teens Back then her books were called psychological suspense or romantic suspenseintrigue I like to call them gothic novels Her books along with fellow authors Phyllis Whitney Mary Stewart Nora Lofts and Barbara Michaels always had ever present danger and sinister characters These ladies were very good at setting the gothic atmosphere and throwing in a little romance too This book I had never read It is very well written and the story will keep you on your toes I would highly recommend this book or any of these authors' books if you want some old time spooky reads or just want to return to the romantic suspense of your youth Something that really stood out in this book is the great editing
