Nefertiti: A Novel

by Michelle Moran

Crown Publishing Group | July 10, 2007 | Hardcover

Nefertiti: A Novel is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 14.
Nefertiti and her younger sister, Mutnodjmet, have been raised in a powerful family that has provided wives to the rulers of Egypt for centuries. Ambitious, charismatic, and beautiful, Nefertiti is destined to marry Amunhotep, an unstable young pharaoh. It is hoped by all that her strong personality will temper the young Amunhotep’s heretical desire to forsake Egypt’s ancient gods, overthrow the priests of Amun, and introduce a new sun god for all to worship.

From the moment of her arrival in Thebes, Nefertiti is beloved by the people. Her charisma is matched only by her husband’s perceived generosity: Amunhotep showers his subjects with lofty promises. The love of the commoners will not be enough, however, if the royal couple is not able to conceive an heir, and as Nefertiti turns her attention to producing a son, she fails to see that the powerful priests, along with the military, are plotting against her husband’s rule. The only person wise enough to recognize the shift in political winds—and brave enough to tell the queen—is her younger sister, Mutnodjmet.

Observant and contemplative, Mutnodjmet has never shared her sister’s desire for power. She yearns for a quiet existence away from family duty and the intrigues of court. Her greatest hope is to share her life with the general who has won her heart. But as Nefertiti learns of the precariousness of her reign, she declares that her sister must remain at court and marry for political gain, not love. To achieve her independence, Mutnodjmet must defy her sister, the most powerful woman in Egypt—while also remaining loyal to the needs of her family.

Love, betrayal, political unrest, plague, and religious conflict—Nefertiti brings ancient Egypt to life in vivid detail. Fast-paced and historically accurate, it is the dramatic story of two unforgettable women living through a remarkable period in history.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compelling! An absolute must read. I love MM's writing style. Her craft for words, plus my love of history, particularly Egypt's past, is a perfect marriage! I could not put the book down!! I can't wait to read all of her books!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like her writing style Told from Nefertiti's younger sister's point of view, it is the mid-1300s BCE in Egypt. Nefertiti was married at 15-years old to the next Pharaoh of Egypt, Amunhotep. Between the two of them, they became greedy and ambitious; not only that, Amunhotep insisted on worshipping only one god, a god most Egyptians had never heard of: Aten, the sun. This caused a lot of unrest in Egypt while he and Nefertiti ruled. In the meantime, Mutny, Nefertiti's sister, only wanted to live a quiet life away from court politics, tending to a herb garden and helping people. But Nefertiti, always afraid of being alone, didn't want to let her sister go. I really enjoyed this. Not as much as Cleopatra's Daughter, but I really seem to like her writing style. Once again, this is a time and place I don't know much, if anything beyond names, about, so it was interesting to read about these people and the culture of the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Entertaining Writing historical fiction set in the Eighteenth Dynasty, ancient Egypt, is a challenging endeavour and difficult to deliver. With a vivid imagination the author has created an interesting spin on a fascinating chapter in history. This is a dramatic tale of two unforgettable sisters one so beautiful she will attract the attention of all Egyptians. The story is narrated by Mutnodjmet (Mutny), the younger (haft) sister of Nefertiti. She tells the story of how her beloved sister, a woman of exceptional beauty and great aspirations to power eventually marries and becomes the ruler of Egypt. It commences with the arranged marriage of fifteen year old Nefertiti to pharaoh Amunhotep IV, a young man with great plans that include changing the entire spiritual structure, ultimately making Aten (the sun disk) the center of worship. It was hoped the marriage would tone down Amunhotep’s vision but as fate would have it, Nefertiti had high ambitions of her own and like her husband wanted the complete support and adoration of the people. As we progress through the pages, we follow the struggle to change the course of politics and worship of the Egyptian population. Strong family dynamics come to life within the main thread and we see double dealing, corruption and vengeance running ramped in the Royal court. It is the ultimate recipe for a Dynasty spiralling downward to a disastrous ending. I enjoyed Ms. Moran’s version, she provides an exciting atmospheric story where the reader can almost see the sights, smell the scents and hear the sounds. Of all the characters I preferred Mutny, she is portrayed as a loveable and sympathetic person a complete contrast to her egocentric and unstable sister and the Pharaoh. I also found the unusual dynamic between the pharaoh and his daughters particularly interesting. Some may find the dialog to be a bit too simplistic but it made for a light and a refreshing summer read for the none purist. The novel is highly fictionalized to make it entertaining so history critics should probably take a pass or take it for what it is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An addictive read Akhenaten and Nefertiti. Court intrigue and the boy king's shift from Amun to Aten. Nefertiti as the manipulative power behind the throne. Faithful to the timeline and and blood lines. Very close to the accepted history of this pharaoh and hard to put down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I loved this book. It was chosen by our book club and it was absolutely amazing! Michelle Moran does an amazing job presenting ancient Egypt to us in such detail that it can actually be envisioned in the reader's mind. The detail is exsquisite but not overwhelming. Writing from the point of view of Nefertiti's sister you can understand the feelings and motivations of all the key players. The book is extremely readable and a real page turner. Her follow up book "The Heretic Queen" should be just as good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compelling If you have any interest in Egypt and its history, then definitely pick up this book. It's an astonishing rich and compelling story told through Nefertiti's sister "Mutny" on the rise and fall of the Queen of Egypt, and the roll she and her family played. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! I loved this book; it had great detail and a great story. The characters were well introduced and very colourful. The only thing I didn't like was there were a few false history facts. And normally I don't mind that because it is “historical fiction” after all, but these facts are important in the plot & important in real history and if you love history as much as I do, you might get a tad annoying at those parts. With that said, I would still recommend this book to anyone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nefertiti by Michelle Moran Really, I don't know that I can say anything more than has already been said about Michelle Moran's debut effort Nefertiti: A Novel. I was captivated by a period in history that many of us would admit we are fascinated by. Michelle Moran made Ancient Egypt come alive with such ingenuity and precision, creating strong, compelling characters and layered intrigues set in a region continually on the brink of turmoil. I am in awe of Moran's writing and the dedication to research I am sure was required. If you are a lover of historical fiction this story is a must read! I'll definitely be picking up The Heretic Queen and Cleopatra's Daughter in the near future. Currently Michelle is working on her next novel about the life of Madame Tussaud during the French Revolution to be released March 2011. I will miss her vision of Egypt but look forward to her recreation of the French Revolution in her next effort. My Rating: 4.5

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! Michelle Moran brilliantly succeeds in delivering historical facts, exquisite detail and fascinating insight into the unraveling life of the timeless and dazzling ruler, Nefertiti. The author ingeniously uses Nefertiti’s closest relation, her sister Mutnodgmet, to describe the Egyptian Queen’s life of acclaimed power and reign. This effectively gives us a close-up of Nefertiti’s character in order to help us understand her personal reasoning and motives, all the while remaining true to the exterior perception of others as well. The regal and stunningly beautiful Nefertiti, through strategically clever ways, managed to sway and pacify one of Egypt’s worst rulers, her husband, Pharaoh Akhenaten. This heretic ruler was known for his self-righteousness need to conquer all in his attempt to be revered and immortalized as a god. The results led to his effectuating the total destruction of an empire he forcefully created despite opposition from the people. While one of Nefertities major roles included placating the ruthless Pharaoh in order to curb his senseless agenda, she astutely paved her way to becoming Egypt’s favourite Queen of the times; both as ruler of the land, as well as, beloved queen of the people. By ensuring her daughters’ rank equal that of Pharaoh’s son (from his secondary wife), Nefertiti set a precedent ensuing a series of changes that would forever revolutionize the perception and status of women as rulers. Ultimately, Nefertiti managed to equal and even surpass Pharaoh in the most unbelievable way… Nefertiti’s ruling, initially from the sidelines, helped keep Egypt safe, strong and secure from possible dangers and threatening of bordering lands. Consequently, her role was instrumental in creating a position for herself that commanded respect and reverence. Nefertiti made sure that she was the center of attention at all times; it was Nefertiti’s world. This borderline egotistic behaviour was often quite overwhelming for her sister…sadly resulting in Mutnodgmet suffering a major blow that nearly separated the two sisters for life- altering their relationship to a different level. For me, what made the story most interesting was precisely the way Mutnodgmet depicts Nefertiti throughout the book. Yes, the Queen was inevitably supreme in most ways…Yet; Mutnodgmet also allows us to see the real Nefertiti, the way she actually was with others- especially her family. Her achievements could not have been attained without the moral and continued support she received from her loved ones, including Mutnodgmet who tended to her every need. Guided by her father, Nefertiti remained focused on keeping the Pharaoh on track in order to minimize the damage he continued to generate. Nefertiti’s unbelievable energy and commitment to secure her family’s position was relentless. Nothing could ever slow her down. For example, it was not unusual for Nefertiti, to immediately rise from her birthing bed to attend a feast, event or even a chariot ride if she deemed it necessary. As well, she went through incredible measures to maintain Pharaoh’s loyalty, devotion and priority towards her and her children rendering his other offspring and wife almost irrelevant. I enjoyed reading about this strong-willed woman who used her, intelligence, guts charms and beauty to keep an empire thriving. Nefertiti used every gift she possessed to advance herself to an ultimate and never-before attainable position- unimaginable and impossible even by today’s standards… Nefertiti is a superb story! It’s a magnetic read that kept me glued from page to page. There isn’t a dull moment in this book. Not only did I plunge into Egyptian history and its different gods, rulers, customs, traditions, architecture, I also learned about the fascinating world of herbs (cures for diseases, conditions and even how to avoid affliction of the plague-Mutnodgmet being the true expert on all of this). But ultimately, it was the palpable characters bursting with emotion, voice and true- to- life detail that totally captured my attention while transporting me into this mesmerizing world of the past. I highly recommend Nefertiti. It’s an unforgettable read- I promise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Novel! Nefertiti by Michelle Moran is historical fiction at its best. It is a novel about Ancient Egypt that hooked me from page one and didn't let go to the very end. What a fabulous novel! It is rich in detail and history-it draws you into this ancient world and you're able to see and learn so much. The story is about two sisters, Nefertiti and Mutnodjmet (called Mutny by her family). At the start of the novel Mutny is 14 and Nefertiti is 16 years old. They are used to the finer things in life-they've always been raised in a powerful family. Nefertiti is to marry Amunhotep, the young pharaoh of Egypt who has his own set of ideas as to how things should be run and carried out in Egypt. The Dowager Queen, Tiye, hopes that Nefertiti will be able to have some control over his wild impulses. So, it is agreed on and Nefertiti marries Amunhotep and becomes queen. He also has a second wife Kiya who is a constant thorn in Nefertiti's side. From the beginning Nefertiti is loved by the people, she is beautiful and has a presence that the people are drawn to. However, she is unable to produce a son-an heir, instead she has six daughters while Kiya does birth a son. She remains powerful though and eventually is named pharaoh alongside Amunhotep. Throughout all of these years though, there are plots being hatched behind the backs of those in power threatening to bring Nefertiti's world crumbling down which is eventually what happens. My favorite character was Mutny, Nefertiti's half sister-they share the same father, different mothers. Mutny is wise beyond her years from the very beginning. It's hard to imagine that she was as young as she was when you read how she was able to handle her sister and other things that happened within the Palace. Mutny has never been interested in power. She has absolutely no desire to rule Egypt or for that matter live in the Palace where she is basically a slave to Nefertiti. Nefertiti feels that Mutny should never want to leave her, should be with her forever watching out for her and taking care of her. Mutny, on the other hand, wants to live quietly with her love, the general, and tend her gardens. Mutny has a talent when it comes to herbs and turned into a medicine woman of sorts with all the women in the surrounding areas and the palace coming to her for sickness or to prevent pregnancies. However, even though Mutny yearns for this calm life, her loyalties lie with Nefertiti and her family. I was completely drawn into the characters lives in this book, even the ones who didn't have as big a part in the story. Michelle Moran manages to write so wonderfully that she makes you feel happy or sad for these characters-she makes you care what's happening or going to happen to them. While this story is based on historical occurences in Ancient Egypt, she has weaved a wonderful tale around the actual facts. By the end of the story my emotions were so wrapped up in both Mutny and Nefertiti that I was sorry to see it end. It wraps up well though and we're not left wondering about anything. So much happens in this novel that it's hard to cover it all in a review which is why this novel is so worth reading yourself. I myself would love to do more research into Nefertiti and Mutny, their families and lives and that of Ancient Egypt; I found it all so fascinating.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings When I cracked open this book, I was looking forward to reading the story of Nefertiti from the eyes of her sister, Mutnodjmet. What i got, however, was a mixture of fact and chaos. Moran seems to periodically forget how old her characters are. It was even so bad that, on one page, Mutnodjmet was 14, then 13, then 14 again. I was also disappointed to discover that Mutnodjmet marries another general in this story, despite history dictating that she marries Horemheb and becomes his queen. The author ends it with the ascension of Tutankhamun, never explaining how Mutnodjmet ends up as Horemheb's wife. It's a good novel, fast-paced and with wonderful dialogue, but coupled with the aforementioned, it leaves a somewhat unsatisfied feeling when finished.
Date published: 2008-09-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Not knowing much about Nefertiti and that time in history I decided to give this book a chance and am I ever glad I did. I love reading historical novels and this is right up there with the best. I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys any historical/medival/biblical drama and intrigue. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exquisite! A very engrossing, can't put down read. Characters are very real across the pages, a very different Mutny as sister to Nefertiti, the sisterly affection is shown very human with all emotions spanning love-jealousy-family bonds. The ending is also a very different take on previously believed historical facts, very modern and believable.

About the Book

The sweeping story of two sisters from a powerful Egyptian family--one of whom is destined to become historys most fascinating queen.

Read from the Book

Chapter One 1351 BCE Peret, Season of Growing WHEN THE SUN set over Thebes, splaying its last rays over the limestone cliffs, we walked in a long procession across the sand. In the twisting line that threaded between the hills, the viziers of Upper and Lower Egypt came first, then the priests of Amun, followed by hundreds of mourners. The sand cooled rapidly in the shadows. I could feel the grains between the toes of my sandals, and when the wind blew under my thin linen robe, I shivered. I stepped out of line so I could see the sarcophagus, carried on a sledge by a team of oxen so the people of Egypt would know how wealthy and great our crown prince had been. Nefertiti would be jealous that she’d had to miss this. I will tell her all about it when I get home, I thought. If she is being nice to me. The bald-headed priests walked behind our family, for we were even more important than the representatives of the gods. The incense they swung from golden balls made me think of giant beetles, stinking up the air whichever way they went. When the funeral procession reached the mouth of the valley, the rattling of the sistrums stopped and the mourners went silent. On every cliff, families had gathered to see the prince, and now they looked down as the High Priest of Amun performed the Opening of the Mouth, to give Tuthmosis back his senses in the Afterlife. The priest was younger than the viziers of Egypt, but even so, men like my father stood back, deferring to his power when

From the Publisher

Nefertiti and her younger sister, Mutnodjmet, have been raised in a powerful family that has provided wives to the rulers of Egypt for centuries. Ambitious, charismatic, and beautiful, Nefertiti is destined to marry Amunhotep, an unstable young pharaoh. It is hoped by all that her strong personality will temper the young Amunhotep’s heretical desire to forsake Egypt’s ancient gods, overthrow the priests of Amun, and introduce a new sun god for all to worship.

From the moment of her arrival in Thebes, Nefertiti is beloved by the people. Her charisma is matched only by her husband’s perceived generosity: Amunhotep showers his subjects with lofty promises. The love of the commoners will not be enough, however, if the royal couple is not able to conceive an heir, and as Nefertiti turns her attention to producing a son, she fails to see that the powerful priests, along with the military, are plotting against her husband’s rule. The only person wise enough to recognize the shift in political winds—and brave enough to tell the queen—is her younger sister, Mutnodjmet.

Observant and contemplative, Mutnodjmet has never shared her sister’s desire for power. She yearns for a quiet existence away from family duty and the intrigues of court. Her greatest hope is to share her life with the general who has won her heart. But as Nefertiti learns of the precariousness of her reign, she declares that her sister must remain at court and marry for political gain, not love. To achieve her independence, Mutnodjmet must defy her sister, the most powerful woman in Egypt—while also remaining loyal to the needs of her family.

Love, betrayal, political unrest, plague, and religious conflict—Nefertiti brings ancient Egypt to life in vivid detail. Fast-paced and historically accurate, it is the dramatic story of two unforgettable women living through a remarkable period in history.
