A National Bestseller!

“Meticulously researched and richly detailed . . . an engrossing tribute to one of the most powerful and alluring women in history.”

-Boston Globe

Nefertiti and her younger sister, Mutnodjmet, have been raised in a powerful family that has provided wives to the rulers of Egypt for centuries. Ambitious, charismatic, and beautiful, Nefertiti is destined to marry Amunhotep, an unstable young pharaoh. It is hoped that her strong personality will temper the young rulers heretical desire to forsake Egypts ancient gods.

From the moment of her arrival in Thebes, Nefertiti is beloved by the people but fails to see that powerful priests are plotting against her husbands rule. The only person brave enough to warn the queen is her younger sister, yet remaining loyal to Nefertiti will force Mutnodjmet into a dangerous political game; one that could cost her everything she holds dear.

Synopsis:

Moran brings to life the dramatic story of Nefertiti and her younger sister, Mutnodjmet, two unforgettable women living through a remarkable period in history.

Michelle Moran is one of my favorite authors because her books on Ancient Egypt have got to be the best I've ever read. I do feel like the title is misleading because the book comes from the view point of Nefertiti's sister, Mutnodjmet. However, I can't call myself a professor of this time period, I feel that Moran really did her homework in researching for this book.

ncient Egypt doesn't normally fall into my historical fiction repertoire. Happily, author Michelle Moran has changed that. I consider myself fairly picky when it comes to this genre -- I don't care for too many liberties to be taken with known historical facts and I'm not overly fond of too much romance thrown in.

Nefertiti was a surprising delight! I was immediately drawn into the court intrigues and the ancient Egyptian world. Moran provides enough historical detail to immerse you in time period without overburdening the reader with useless, boring details.

The plot held my attention, so much so that I found myself reading at times I normally wouldn't: making dinner, kid's bath times, etc. :)

I highly recommend this novel and it's follow-up, The Heretic Queen. Both are well-written historical fiction that doesn't take too many liberties with historical facts. Well done!
