Nefertari is a Egyptian princess, the niece of the heretic Queen Nefertiti. When her childhood friend, becomes the Crown Prince, she struggles to find her place in his heart and in Egypt as his Queen.
While there has been much written about King Ramesses II, only a little is known about Queen Nefertari, Author Michelle Moran weaves an interesting and captivating story about the “Warrior Queen” who was the great love of Ramesses II.
I was surprised to see negative reviews of this novel. I realize that hardcore historical fiction fans might have issue with the romance – but that was, in fact, documented. Moran is very clear about the areas she invented, and it made for a well-ordered plot and engaging novel. I enjoyed it very much!
