Publisher Comments:

In ancient Egypt, a forgotten princess must overcome her familys past and remake history.

The winds of change are blowing through Thebes. A devastating palace fire has killed the Eighteenth Dynastys royal family-with the exception of Nefertari, the niece of the reviled former queen, Nefertiti. The girls deceased family has been branded as heretical, and no one in Egypt will speak their names. Nefertari is pushed aside, an unimportant princess left to run wild in the palace. But this changes when she is taken under the wing of the Pharaohs aunt, then brought to the Temple of Hathor, where she is educated in a manner befitting a future queen.

Soon Nefertari catches the eye of the Crown Prince, and despite her familys history, they fall in love and wish to marry. Yet all of Egypt opposes this union between the rising star of a new dynasty and the fading star of an old, heretical one. While political adversity sets the country on edge, Nefertari becomes the wife of Ramesses the Great. Destined to be the most powerful Pharaoh in Egypt, he is also the man who must confront the most famous exodus in history.

"Nefertari tells her story simply, humbly, and in a clear voice that will attract readers."-Romantic Times

Michelle Moran is one of my favorite authors and this 'The Heretic Queen' has to be my favorite book by her. This is the story of Nefertari, the niece of the infamous Queen Nefertiti. Though an unimportant princess, Nefertari is taken under the wing of the Pharoah's sister and is made into the perfect image of a future Queen of Egypt. None other than that, she catches the eye of the Crown Prince, sending waves of jealousy to those against Nefertari. Plotting, scheming, palace intrigue, battles all in the setting of ancient Egypt, 'The Heretic Queen' gives us insight in the lives of a powerful Egyptian family.

Since my middle school days, I have sincerely loved all things Egyptian. I found this book and was instantly intrigued. It covers the golden age of Egypt with Ramses II. The author captures the beliefs of the culture so thoroughly that it will make you feel like you are Egyptian and these are your battles. At least, that is how I felt. I could almost see myself believing in a deity named Amun as the main character, Nefertari, describes her ka and family spirits on the festival of wag. The author also spins a web of political intrigue and mystery. The twists in the book will keep you guessing and reading. It's all about who becomes "chief wife" and thus ultimately queen of Egypt. The journey is thrilling and amazing. You will feel as if you are there in Thebes sweating it out with Nefertari as she battles against the evil name of her Aunt and the evil plots of the High Priestess of Isis. For 2012, "The Heretic Queen" gets my vote for best book read in 2012.
