Ficbot, I would say that it isn't strictly necessary, but there is a lot of character development in the books (as well as repeat characters, etc.), so you will miss some of the fun of the series of you read them out of order. However, The Curse of the Pharoahs is the second book of the series, so you could at least buy that one.
