Due to certain things that I had deduced from various sources, I knew that this book would have some morally touchy elements. I thought that I could stand it, for once. But after reading the prequel to this one (Guardian of the Horizon) I was less than impressed... ( )

Synopsis: ' It is 1911 and Amelia and husband Emerson receive a mysterious accusation of antiquities forgery leveled against family friend David, who is just about to marry Amelia's niece Lia. More intrigue and mystery build up when the Emersons return to Egypt: bullets aimed at Amelia, the discovery of a young American's corpse at their excavation site, and the appearance of a small girl of mysterious parentage.'
Review: There are lots of twists in the plot. David and Lia are finally wed, but they are off to a rough start not only because of David's ethnicity, but because of the charges leveled against him. Percy's daughter leads Nefret to abandon Ramses. This particular story deals with lots of feelings and the beginnings of World War I.
Review: Well fine. I am glad that Percy has been eliminated. Nefret behaved stupidly. Really ready for what happens next. ( )

In which Ramses and Nefret make me believe in love for the briefest of moments and then tear out my heart and shatter it into tiny pieces and stomp on it.

I'm also going to call out Peters for the following passage, because what the fuck:

... I caught Emerson - he had put himself deliberately in my path - and he caught Nefret, who pulled him under the mistletoe and kissed him soundly. I had to put a stop to the kissing after a while.

Is that... meant to imply that Nefret was making out with her adoptive father in a way that made Amelia uncomfortable? Because that's SUPER GROSS AND WEIRD. And then it's never mentioned again. I am DISTURBED.

The 1911 season looks to be one full of drama for Amelia Peabody what with the weddings, the weird family drama between Nefret and Ramses, the political intrigue and drug dealers on the loose, the random child popping up claiming to belong to Ramses. And of course, the rash of forgeries attributed to Ramses’ best friend, David–falsely attributed, obviously, but proving that is being a bit challenging. Maybe it’s a good thing the only site Emerson was able to get this season is a bit boring on the whole.

I absolutely always love Peters’ Amelia Peabody books; there’s some great history combined with lots of thrills, good humor, suspense, mystery, and romance. Basically, they’re just good historical adventures all around. The Falcon at the Portal fills this excellently, although I do have to say that it’s just generally less cohesive than some of the other stories in this series. Honestly, there’s just so much going on that it’s hard to keep track sometimes of what’s actually important. Add to that the fact that you’ve got three separate narrators (even though I love having Nefret and Ramses’ perspectives), and the story can be a bit all over the place at times. But really, I feel like the actual mystery plot takes second place to the character development and drama in this volume anyhow, so it’s not such a big deal to miss plot threads at times. And wow is there some drama going on here! For one, we’ve got some actual development in one of my favorite (of all time, not just of this series) ships–Nefret and Ramses. Plus the whole mess with Amelia’s nephew Percy and the Americans who keep hanging around. And of course, this is where Sennia joins the family. So yeah, lots of drama, a good touch of heartache, but lots of fun, too. Recommended. ( )
