Synopsis: 'The story begins in summer, 1907, ten years after the Emersons' expedition into the Nubian desert in The Last Camel Died at Noon, when the Emersons were lured to a Lost Oasis where the remains of a Meroitic - Ancient Egyptian civilization that had avoided the outside world for centuries still survived. It was during that journey that the Emersons brought back Nefret Forth to live with them in England. A messenger from the Lost Oasis now appears at their home in Kent, pleading for help for their friend, King Tarek, and they have no choice but to go to his aid, though they mistrust the young man who claims to be Tarek's younger half-brother.
This time it is Ramses who experiences the feeling of foreboding that normally assails Amelia, as they head off to the Sudan and into the desert to help their friend. Unlike their first trip, they bring a far larger force, in full awareness that the Lost Oasis will no longer be a secret no matter what the outcome of this expedition. It soon becomes apparent that the Emersons are not the only ones interested in the Lost Oasis. They run into too many people who are interested in their travel plans, and ultimately bring some unexpected guests with them. These include a British adventurer who has in his company a mysterious young woman. The girl unsuccessfully attempts to seduce Ramses, but he remains strangely attracted to her, although he is really in love with Nefret.
Upon their arrival, the family finds things have indeed become desperate for King Tarek, who has been deposed by the father of the duplicitous messenger who brought them to the oasis. The usurper's plan is to obtain the endorsement of the Emerson family in order to neutralise any popular resistance this regime. Nefret, who up until now has seemed to miss her old life, is taken from the group and made to resume her position as high priestess. When Amelia catches an intruder in their quarters, she is relieved to find that it is her old enemy and admirer Sethos, and he promises to help rescue Nefret.
Amelia is up to her usual plotting and lists, Emerson is as bombastic as ever, Ramses plays the part of the action hero, and the assistance of Selim and Daoud becomes essential to the Father of Curses and the Sitt Hakim.'
Review: Chronologically, this book covers the time period immediately after The Ape Who Guards the Balance. This isn't as interesting as the first book that dealt with the Oasis. ( )

I decided to read these in internal chronological order (rather than publishing order) so this is coming straight after [b:The Ape Who Guards the Balance|64255|The Ape Who Guards the Balance (Amelia Peabody, #10)|Elizabeth Peters|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1297727767s/64255.jpg|62382].

Not my favourite of the series - [b:The Last Camel Died at Noon|66528|The Last Camel Died at Noon (Amelia Peabody, #6)|Elizabeth Peters|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1297727723s/66528.jpg|2501349] redux, with less mystery. I like action-hero Ramses, and I like that he has moments of self-doubt. Nefret was... odd, in this one. Not sure what to make of her trance and revelations at the end. Amelia and Emerson are as loveable as ever, although I did notice that their sex life seems to have dropped off a bit in this book (I mean... it was mentioned a lot before). ( )

A great opus in the Amelia Peabody series. Just know that the plot is situated after "The Ape who Guards the Balance". So it was back in time as far as the series goes but very great. Amelia and Emerson surpassed themselves. ( )

I enjoyed this a good deal, and couldn't keep track of the plot to save my life. Barbara Rosenblatt is a great reader. ( )

I am positive I listened to the unabridged audiobook at some point, but I cannot remember when, and for some reason never logged it here. I generally object to abridged books, but am glad I listened to this one - the abridgment minimized the parts of this book that got so very much on my nerves. The plot dragged the characters, rather than being driven by them. I suppose that's not surprising, since the characters weren't quite themselves. It's not a terrible installment in the annals of the Peabody Emersons, but not one that shines, either. ( )

Peters has set GUARDIAN OF THE HORIZON in 1907, predating her previous historical novel by more than a decade... , the device revitalizes Amelia, allowing the daring explorer and her manly husband, Radcliffe Emerson (honored in Egypt as ''the Father of Curses''), to go tearing across the Sudan desert on a mission fraught with danger.

When we left Egypt in the spring of 1907, I felt like a defeated general who has retreated to lick his wounds (if I may be permitted a somewhat inelegant but expressive metaphor).
