About the Book

Irish author Bram Stoker's horror book, The Jewel of Seven Stars, was initially made available by Heinemann in 1903. The story is a first-person narrative of a young guy who becomes involved in an archaeologist's scheme to bring Queen Tera, an Egyptian mummy, back to life. At the request of his daughter Margaret, renowned Egyptologist Abel Trelawny summons Malcolm Ross to his home. Malcolm observes that others in the room are affected by the "mummy scent," which is there due to the abundance of Egyptian artifacts in Margaret's room. The doctor believes Silvio is to blame for the scratch wounds on Abel's elbow since a huge mommy cat bothers Margaret's cat. Corbeck describes his journey to Egypt with Trelawny in search of the tomb containing the sarcophagus. He thinks that by opening the coffer, some magic will be released, reviving the mummy and reawakening Tera's spirit. According to Trelawny, ancient Egyptians possessed contemporary scientific knowledge, such as the discovery of radium and the invention of electricity. Malcolm worries about the impact on religion if the power of the ancient Egyptian gods is proven. As the lamps are lit, the coffer begins to glow, emitting a green vapor that passes into the sarcophagus. Suddenly, a storm shatters a window, blowing vapor around the room.
