Book Description

Today, she is an icon of beauty, her face known to millions. But it nearly wasn't so.
Her husband left her his one God and his throne. His enemies murdered her and tried to wipe her out of history. But thanks to the devotion of a supremely talented artist, she lives on, her face and name familiar to millions more than 3,000 years after her death.
This is the story of Nefertiti, Great Wife of Pharaoh Akhenaten, the world's first monotheist. The evidence shows that she became increasingly powerful during her husband's lifetime, eventually serving as co-pharaoh. After his death, she reigned as Pharaoh under the name 'Smenkare'. Egyptologist Joann Fletcher has unearthed evidence that suggests that she was assassinated and her body further mutilated after her death.
But the images of the beautiful queen that linger with us are the magnificent sculptures by the artist Thutmose, stunning in their realism, a thousand years before the classical Greeks. Most haunting of all, of course, is the famous bust, which was found among plaster models of body parts in the ruins of the sculptor's studio. Ironically, it may have survived the desctruction of Akhenaten's capital simply because it was hidden among what was deemed to be 'garbage'. But why was it left there? Could it be that the artist couldn't bear to part with it? Was it left unfinished so that he had an excuse to keep it? Was the artist in love with the beautiful, unattainable Queen?
This is their story, as told from the artist's point of view.

5.0 out of 5 stars YuyawasJoseph June 18, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Nefertiti: Immortal Queen is form the POV of Thutmouse, the real life sculptor of the famous Nefertiti bust. The fictionalized story is about how Thutmose met and fell in love with Nefertiti, how he became a leading sculptor in the royal administration, and his enduring devotion to his Queen.
The plot is full of factual history woven through fictionalized lives. I rate this history very high. The literary style fits the author, Cheryl Fluty. Her profile states that she was a high tech advice columnist.
I find that the outstanding feature of the story is how the author wove religious facts with historical characters and political tensions. And one of the key threads weaves around Nefertiti's paternal grandfather and Akhenaten's maternal grandfather - they had a common grandfather - Yuya! The author shows Yuya to be the Hebrew Joseph, thus relating the story to the Israelites concept of one God. This concept of one God was embraced by Nefertiti and Akhenaten, and this concept fanned flames of hatred against the royal couple.
See Ahmed Osman's book "Stranger in the Valley of the Kings" for more on Yuya being the Hebrew Joseph.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent look into the life of Nefertiti!! June 23, 2009
Format:Paperback
I'm not generally a fan of historical fiction, but this book is both historical and highly entertaining!! The main character, Thutmose is a wonderful, lovable character who grows to deeply love Nefertiti. This book is a quick read, full of romance and intrigue! I would recommend this book to fans of all types of fiction!

5.0 out of 5 stars nefertiti. Immortal Queen August 22, 2009
Format:Paperback
This is an amazing book and captures the real story, it brings to life the real people and would let others know about this book.i was looking for a book that told the real story and life of Nefertiti and her Soul Mate Thotemos and found them in this book.
It will bring you back to Egypt and capture your heart with the love he had for her and the love she had for him. It also shows the sorrow of two people so in love but unable to show it tell the tragic end.
