However, there is also a need for basic historical accuracy with what we do know. Which is why it has a four star rating instead of a five over what may seem a trivial matter, but is not.
This book is clearly set near the end of the reign of Amenhotep III, who died in 1352 BC. Yet, the tile on the floor of Queen Tiye's quarters is discussed as being either Greek or Roman. Really? Rome was not founded until 753 BC, six centuries later, so no Rome and no Roman tile available.
This kind of error is jarring to a reader putting aside disbelief on some of the assumptions because the story is just so well done and is, after all, fiction.
We really do not know for certain where Nefertiti came from, or Tiye or even Horemheb, so speculating as to their origins adds to the interest, even if I disagree with some of the conclusions and does not spoil enjoyment of the book.
Recommended to those who do not get all hung up in the various theories re the 18 th Dynasty.
