While Verity Fitzroy loses herself in magical mechanizations and fantastical science of London, she harbours secrets of the death of her parents, of a mystery she can't leave alone, and of her power over machinery that both excites and terrifies her. Verity is part of the Ministry Seven, street orphans that work for Agent Harrison Thorne of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences. Under his guidance, a whole new adventure begins for them all, investigating the strange, the unusual, and the bizarre. When an Egyptologist from the British Museum is kidnapped, the only clue leads to the Delancy Academy, an elite school for gifted, young scientists. Now the Seven are called upon to go where Ministry agents cannot, and within the school Verity uncovers an ancient evil that could herald the end of the world. The Seven set down a dangerous path of intrigue, mystery, and murder; and find that ancient curses are especially difficult to contend with when you have Chemistry assignments due the next day. From the creators of the award-winning steampunk series comes a new adventure set in the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences universe.

If anything could ever stir the imaginations of lovers of the ancient world, and of Pharaonic Egypt in particular, it would be the tombs and treasures left by the kings who died thousands of years ago but left their monuments behind. Such monuments have etched their names into the history of mankind, and they continue to impress us today just as much as the times in which they were built. Curiously, it wasn't inside of these magnificent monuments where the bodies of the pharaohs who made possible these extraordinary Egyptian constructions were found, but they were instead hidden in modest graves and dirty caves, where they managed to evade thieves throughout the centuries. In the following pages we will review some of these findings that once astonished and blew the world away, although it is true that not all of them had the same media coverage. Of course, there is the most famous of all the tombs-that of Tutankhamun-but also others that are not so known, like the necropolis of Tanis, that presented the paradox of being the one that brought out not one, but three intact royal tombs, and yet is also one of the least known episodes of Egyptian archaeology. Not to mention the first major finding, the discovery in the mountains of Deir el Bahari, of a cache with dozens of mummies, among which there were those of some of the most powerful pharaohs of Egypt's history . I hope you enjoy it. Important: This book includes my ebooks: "The Royal mummies' Hideout," "Tutankamun's Tomb and the Curse of the Mummies" and "The Silver Pharaohs (The Royal Tombs of Tanis)."

«Η κατάρα που απέτυχε να σε σκοτώσει δημιούργησε έναν περίεργο δεσμό ανάμεσα σε εσένα και στον Άρχοντα του Σκότους. Τα στοιχεία δείχνουν ότι κάποιες στιγμές που το μυαλό σου είναι χαλαρωμένο, και άρα ευάλωτο –όταν κοιμάσαι για παράδειγμα– μοιράζεσαι τις σκέψεις και τα συναισθήματά του. Ο διευθυντής δε θέλει να συνεχιστεί αυτό. Θέλει να σου διδάξω τη σφραγισματική για να σφραγίζεις το μυαλό σου στον Άρχοντα του Σκότους. Το Χόγκουαρτς ζει σκοτεινές ώρες. Μετά από την επίθεση που κάνουν οι Παράφρονες στον ξάδελφό του τον Ντάντλι, ο Χάρι Πότερ ξέρει πως ο Βόλντεμορτ θα κάνει τα πάντα για τον εντοπίσει. Υπάρχουν πολλοί που δεν πιστεύουν πως ο Σκοτεινός Άρχοντας επέστρεψε, αλλά ο Χάρι δεν είναι μόνος του: ένα μυστικό τάγμα συγκεντρώνεται στο Γκρίμολντ Πλέις για να αντισταθεί στις σκοτεινές δυνάμεις. Ο Χάρι πρέπει να αφήσει τον καθηγητή Σνέιπ να τον διδάξει πώς να προστατευθεί από τις άγριες επιθέσεις του Βόλντεμορτ στο μυαλό του. Αλλά οι επιθέσεις γίνονται κάθε μέρα και πιο άγριες και ο χρόνος δεν είναι με το μέρος του Χάρι...
