Maybe like a 375 out of 5 The author does a good job of capturing what we know from the archeaological record about the culture and lifestyle of ancient Egypt and the 19th dynasty And the book certainly peaks my interest in the relationship between Ramesses II and Nefertari whose love was well documented in poetry and on the walls of monuments and shrines The basic plot involves the rise of Nefertari an outcast princess shunned because of her relationship to Nefertiti to the throne and the complicated court politics she has to navigateFor some reason parts of the novel didn't feel flushed out enough for me and other parts seemed overly dwelt on Her childhood and preening to become the perfect woman for Ramesses got a little old The fact that he was so two dimensional as to completely fall for her caterpillar to butterfly routine was a little trite Then again they were teenagers so maybe it's realistic that their love life was so simple Overall it was engaging and I read it in only a few sittings I will definitely read her first book about Nefertiti

I struggled how to rate this book In the end I opted for 45 rounded at 5 because a book that keeps me as entertained as it did deserved it even if there were some issuesI must confess after the first few pages I wanted to put this book down and never pick it up again I'm glad I didn't I suppose it happened because at first I was under the impression this book is solely a romance and the romance aspect of this book was the worst part of it Nothing seemed natural the chemistry between characters was weak and at the beginning it seemed to be like nothing than a fight between two girls for whom would capture the heart of the prince The fact that the main character was not yet fourteen didn't help to warm me up to this book Nor the fact that Nefertari was painted as smart while Iset her rival as extremely ignorantLuckily it was not about that It was about a girl's fight for her place in history And as soon as she left for the temple of Hathor to begin her learning things started to get interesting In the end it proved to be a book full of court politics and intrigue where all characters had their own secret agenda and their own hidden desires Even if at the beginning I didn't care about Nefertari and her love I began invested in her struggles as the book progressed She was no longer a princess with a love that didn't even made much sense but a girl fighting to clean her family name wrongfully accused someone looking for her rightfully place in the pyramid of things But important than what this book was about is the fact that it managed to keep me engaged to have me turning page after page to make me return to it in every free moment I could find I doesn't matter that there are still things I don't agree with a reader doesn't have to agree to everything a writer proposes to like their book not when those things are not the major plot points of this book And speaking of those there were many unexpected turns I don't know how this book would be received by fans of Egypt's history by those who know the facts very well because I'm not one of them But for me who knew almost nothing about that era it seemed like a good beginning to learn something And accurate or not the author managed to create an exciting mix
