you will love this book! I recommend it highly!
She’s so creative when adding story and life to the history that’s been blacked out. Read on. You’ll love it!
However, I was very disappointed by the lack of character development. All of the characters are extremely two dimensional and stereotypical. We are told that Nefertiti is beautiful and wise beyond her years, but we only know that because we are told this directly numerous times. We are told she loves her husband, but honestly, it's not clear why. She decides to love him at the time of their arranged marriage and we are told in the early part of their marriage, they spent a lot of time getting to know each other, but we are not privy to many of these conversations or knowledge of what she likes about him other than he is Pharaoh. Certainly Pharaoh only appears to "love" her because she is attractive. Nefertiti supposedly loves her children, but we see very little evidence of actual interactions between them until some minor scenes toward the end of the book. The friendship between Nefertiti and Kiya similarly lacks dimension. The Pharaoh's hostile sister and her husband appear bent on the destruction of Pharaoh and Nefertiti, but we are only given exile as a vague excuse for this. The sister's experiences in exile or perhaps even a single conversation with her husband about this might have added some depth. As the story reads, the characters all appear quite cliched and unreal.
Additionally, what dialogue between the characters we were privy to felt forced and silly. I actually laughed aloud during part of the dramatic rebellion when one of the angry rebels attacks Nefertiti while yelling, " You pitiful pathetic waste of royalty!" The fight scene during the rebellion was equally humorous. The rebels break into the room Nefertiti, her servants, and her children are hiding in. Though "her maidservants were no match for the men," Nefertiti is able to subdue 3 angry men with weapons by herself in rapid succession. Keep in mind, she has no combat training. There is no evidence she is even able to bathe herself, yet she becomes an instant ninja. Really?
Potential readers should also be aware that this book ends in a cliffhanger. Is it just the most logical place to end a book before it gets too long or a ploy to sell a second in the series? I'll leave that to you to decide.
In summary, this book has some great potential and is easy to read. You may even learn a bit about history from it. However, if you are looking for deep, interesting, or realistic characters, you may want to pass on this one.
