Publisher Description

Fast-paced and historically accurate, Nefertiti is the dramatic story of two unforgettable women living through a remarkable period in history.

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 ruler’s heretical desire to forsake Egypt’s 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 husband’s rule. The only person brave enough to warn the queen is her younger sister, Mutnodjmet.

Observant and contemplative, Mutnodjmet has never shared her sister’s desire for power. She yearns for a quiet existence away from family duty and the intrigues of court. But remaining loyal to Nefertiti will force Mutnodjmet into a dangerous political game; one that could cost her everything she holds dear. Teeming with love, betrayal, political unrest, plague, and religious conflict, Nefertiti brings ancient Egypt to life in vivid detail.

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

Loved it!

I love historical fiction and classic literature. This book was not what I expected but it was a pleasant surprise. It's now one of my favorites!

This book is an entertaining read not sure how factual it is mainly the story of her younger sister. It can be slow at time's and definitely doesn't show Nefertiti in a good light. She comes across as narcisstic, vain and cruel. Her sister - who tells the story - sounds self-righteous and down right irritating at times also. It's entertaining as a glimpse as to what life may have been like back then. All in all it's entertaining but if your looking for a historical biography about Nefertiti this isn't it.
