★★★★★ A Fun Hidden Game for Fans
By Patron90292 on Thu, 10 Aug 2017 11:47:16
This is not a review of the book The Painted Queen itself, except to say that it is just as entertaining as the previous 20 books in the Amelia Peabody series. I think that the parts that Joan Hess completed for Elizabeth Peters blend seamlessly with the original material. No, what I wanted to flag is a fun hidden game of sorts within the text. The author(s) have scattered the titles of the other books in the series throughout, so it's kind of like a word find game for dedicated Amelia Peabody fans. I can't say I found them all, but I found several. Fun for fans. Oh, I also read somewhere (on the web, so it MUST be true) that Joan Hess left the last chapter exactly as Elizabeth Peters wrote it. Nice.
