Before there was Cleopatra there was the notorious Nefertiti, Queen of the Nile. Moran recreates her story with a vibrancy, drama and compassion that would make the queen proud. As in The Other Boleyn Girl, the relationship between sisters sets this novel apart and makes Nefertiti's story powerful and memorable. It belongs alongside the finest fictional biographies.
Readers are brought into Nefertiti's world through her sister Mutnodjmet's point of view, when
As her unstable husband overthrows the priests, confiscates their wealth and enlists the army to build a great city in his honor, Nefertiti's life is in a precarious position. Only her sister sees what is happening, and though she would like to leave the intrigue-ridden court, she will do whatever she must for her sister's sake. (Crown, Jul., 460 pp., $24.95)
