The Quantum Curators and the Fabergé Egg: An alternate history, time-travel adventure. (Book 1) Kindle Edition
Anyone can track down a priceless artefact that’s been lost for hundreds of years. Finding one that’s been hidden on a parallel Earth… now that’sa neat trick.
When Neith Salah – a quantum curator charged with traveling to our parallel Earth to rescue precious artefacts – is ordered to save a priceless Fabergé Egg, she figures it’s just another job. The only problem: she’s not sure what the egg looks like. Or where it is. Or when it is.
Enter Julius Strathclyde, a mild-mannered Cambridge professor whose closest brush with death-defying treasure hunts is finding lost coins down the back of the sofa. Not the usual “save the world” type, but when Julius’ best friend is murdered while searching for the egg, Neith realizes that this mild-mannered professor is the only person who can help her solve the riddles that will lead her to the egg.
She just has to keep him alive long enough to do it.
He’s got the fountain pens. She’s got the guns. They’ll just have to hope that’s enough to keep them ahead of the Russian Mafia, unknown assassins, and perhaps even other quantum curators who want the egg for their own dark purposes… and may not be picky about who they have to kill to get it.
Number one bestselling author Eva St. John invites you to join Neith and Julies on a fast-paced adventure that will take you from Russia and Poland to London and Cambridge, from our world to theirs, and beyond. If you love adventure, humour, and puzzles – with just a pinch of time-traveling thrills mixed in for luck – you’ll love The Quantum Curators and the Fabergé Egg.

The gods don’t exist but who’s going to tell them?
Something is rotten in the heart of Alexandria and Julius Strathclyde is in trouble. He appears to have summoned the gods, which is driving his partner, Neith Salah, insane. Not to mention all the other ultra-rational citizens of Alpha earth.
It gets worse.
The gods set a challenge that can’t be refused. The race is on to find the lost blueprints for the Quantum Stepper. Whoever possesses them will be able to unlock the stepper’s true potential.
The game is afoot and the outcome is terrifying. All of time and space will be under the control of the victors; to protect, or to plunder. Can Julius and Neith get to the plans before their rivals?
If they lose, Julius’ earth is doomed, but if they win, Neith’s earth will continue to disintegrate.
Can they find a third way? Or will the gods win out?
For lovers of fast-paced, witty novels. The Quantum Curators go from strength to strength.

About the author
Top reviews from United Kingdom
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It also seems that the book has been run through a spelling checker without the results being reviewed, a number of proper names have been mangled, for example "Goodge Street" -> "Gouge Street", "Charing Cross" -> "Charring Cross", again something that should have been spotted at the editing/proofreading stage.
So news of a previously unknown example, with provenance linking it directly to the massacre of the Romanovs in Yekaterinburg, is enough to set the pulses racing of collectors everywhere, including, as it turns out, a group of professionals from a parallel world of peace, plenty and considerable advanced technology, linked to our own. There is a deadline, after which it is known the artefact will be destroyed, so every incentive to 'rescue' it first. But some individuals are more ruthless than others about carrying out their plans.
This is an exciting romp in which the danger seems very real, but with some good elements of humour and nifty characterisation to boot. It starts a little slowly, perhaps, but the concept of a civilisation in which Egypt dominates a global culture, because Africa is essentially the centre of learning and research draws the reader in. A protagonist who complains about British weather is one thing, but one who feels the Thames would be much improved by a few crocodiles is something else! The shifting points of view mean that we are constantly slightly unbalanced, never quite able to take anything for granted, and as the climax approaches that becomes ever more the case.
Roll on the next book. I need to know more!
Lovers of Jasper Fforde Ben Aaronovitch and Ann Leckie will love this story telling.
I’m looking forward to book 2 in the series.
