Book Two of the Instrumentalities of the Night. This is a work of fiction. All of the characters, organizations, and events portrayed in this novel are either products of the author’s imagination or are used fictitiously.

Book Two of the Instrumentalities of the Night. The wells of power are weakening and the forces of Night grow strong. The gods are real, and still have some power, mostly to do harm. The Instrumentalities of the Night are the worst of these. Piper Hecht, born Else Tage, survived a battle with the Instrumentalities.

Glen Cook Lord of the Silent Kingdom The ice advances every winter. The world grows colder. The seas grow shallower. In northernmost Andoray the reindeer herds and mystic Seatts have disappeared. The farms and pastures, hills and fjords that supported the warlike Andorayans, two centuries gone, are entombed under ice so thick the wild, tall mountains are lost. Across the world-though less so amongst the Wells of Ihrian-the well.

Well, what the devil have you been doing?". Good afternoon to you, too," I replied. Close the door, Emerson, and make sure there is no one lurking in the corridor. Ramses did not kiss his wife. However, he took the hand she extended and continued to hold it as he stood beside her. "And how was your day?". Speak up, Emerson, Bertie is resting, but he will be down soon, and so will Sennia, and William may take it into his head to do more reading.

And there is the incessant, silent war against the Tyranny of the Night. This most deadly and most vile of wars is the struggle least well known. Not one man in five hundred becomes aware of the conflict, yet to be born is to become a conscript in the struggle with the Instrumentalities of the Night.

The ghosts of an ancient past and the specters of a present-day evil are buried beneath the Egyptian sands . . . For archaeologist Amelia Peabody and her family, the allure of Egypt remains as powerful as ever, even in 1915, as a World War rages. But nowhere in this exotic land is safe-especially for Amelia's son Ramses and his beautiful new wife Nefret. Treachery and danger pursue the two young lovers across the desert nation, strengthening a bond of passion and devotion that only death can sever. And the grim discovery of a recent corpse in a tomb where it does not belong is pulling Amelia deeper into a storm of intrigue, corruption, kidnapping, and murder-and toward dark revelations that threaten to awaken the past . . . and alter the family's destiny.
  • Ramses and Nefret are blissfully happy, Sethos becomes part of the family, Margaret Mitton also joins in, Amelia and Emerson are at their best, and more characters are added to the already wonderfully developed cast of characters. And Abdullah continues to provide clues and remain a part of the story. Another body, more fights and kidnapping, and another shirt ruined. Classic! I'm on to the next one! Oh, and this is the 4th time I've read the series. I always hate coming to the last one. I feel bereft at losing my close companions.

  • Always expect to be entertained when reading another of the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters! I now have all 19 issues in this series that I bought through Amazon and have on my Paper White. I am now re-reading the entire series and am on book #15. It is like visiting a favorite group of relatives and living (with them) their unique life as Egyptologists in the early part of 1910. Think Indiana Jones and his adventures, but actually I think that Amelia is more entertaining! Sincerely, Louise Mustain 4-29-2015

  • As with all the Amelia Peabody books, the narrative is a combination of first person and third person. The form is a bit formal, as this takes place in the Victorian and Edwardian periods where speaking correctly was highly valued, unlike today. If you have followed the series, this and all the other books are a wonderful blend of Ms Peters excellent writing style and (as Egyptologist Barbara Mertz) knowledge of Egypt and its history. Recommend that you start at the beginning and read through the continuing history of the family. Sadly, Ms Peters passed in 2013 but a new book is coming out this month. From what I've read, it will not 'tie up' the loose ends of the family adventures but will be a retrospective to the early years of WWI. I highly recommend the series.

  • Our hero’s are added again solving the mystery after mystery. Poor Emerson doesn’t believe he can possibly have one season of excavation without interruption. It’s amazing how many scrapes they can get into it even more so that they can get out of them. Enjoy the read!

  • Love Amelia and her humour and adventures. It is well written and I have learned alot about Egypt. This is my third reading of the series. I wish they would never end... But, even Amelia agrees like the rest of us. Maybe a Ramses and Nefrit
    series?

  • Like all people who have encountered Elizabeth Peter's books, I love them all. I paticularly enjoy her sly observations of human nature: male, female, children, people from different cultures and professions. Additionally, I love being transported to the ruins and archeological digs in Egypt. My own world falls away and I am in a different land and a different time. I always enjoy the personal encounter of the "father of curses" with the locals, as well as the compassion and insight of "sit hakim". I am always on the lookout for a new book from Ms. Peters and read the old ones over again while I wait. If you have never read one these boods, you are in for a treat.

  • Another great season in Egypt for the Emersons, their family and friends, with all the ingredients--drama, adventure, danger, romance, comedy, spies, intrigue, and cats.

  • This is my second read of the entire series and it has only gotten better. Peabody her family, their adventures, and their mishaps makes a good read.
