Women in ancient Egypt did have power especially those of noble blood and some held high ranking positions as has been discovered in archeological digs. The recent discovery of Hepset is an example and a queen’s palace indicating her as a ruler in the excavation of the Giza workman’s village headed by Mark Lehner’s team is another.
Anyway, I was captivated from the beginning: the mention of past characters woven into the story, the connection to the family of those characters, and the introduction of Neferit all blended to make a fun and captivating read. Neferit brought relief and interest from the constant plotting and waging of war. She moved the story forward with intrigue and daring. But also a chuckle or two. Pairing her up with Sadiki is also a brilliant move. An ideal partner and friend.
The way Max brought to light the numerous kings during that time was done in a way that gives the reader the gist of the quick turn around and origin without getting bogged down in too much detail really worked. I was aware of the passage of time and knew I was skipping periods of unknowns but it didn’t make me feel like I missed anything important. Max does this several times and each time it is effective.
All in all this is another award quality book in my humble opinion.
