From the Publisher
A National Bestseller!
"Meticulously researched and richly detailed . . . an engrossing
tribute to one of the most powerful and alluring women in history."
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
that her strong personality will temper the young ruler's heretical
desire to forsake Egypt's ancient gods.
From the moment of her arrival in Thebes, Nefertiti is beloved by
the people but fails to see that powerful priests are plotting
against her husband's rule. The only person brave enough to warn
the queen is her younger sister, yet remaining loyal to Nefertiti
will force Mutnodjmet into a dangerous political game; one that
could cost her everything she holds dear.
