Nefertiti by Michelle Moran
Book DescriptionWhen the Crown Prince of Egypt needs a wife, the beautiful, charismatic, ambitious and connected Nefertiti is his mother's first choice. She quickly becomes accustomed to the opulence of her new life. As Queen of the world's first great empire at the height of its power, all her dreams are realised. Beguiling and wilful, Nefertiti is soon as powerful as the Pharaoh himself. But when her husband breaks with a thousand years of tradition, defying the priests and the military, it will take all Nefertiti's wiles to keep the nation from being torn apart. Watching from the shadows, her sister, Mutny, detests the back-stabbing nature of palace life, and as she dreams of a simple life in the countryside, she records her sister's transformation from teenage girl to living goddess. But Nefertiti's star quality can only take her so far, and when she's prepared to sacrifice her sister to strengthen her power, the two women become locked in a feud which only death can break...

Book Review: Nefertiti by Michelle Moran - Reviewed by tadrienne (03 Aug 2011)
Told from the point of view of her sister Mutnodjmet. Her sister Nefertiti marries the Prince Amunhotep who becomes next in line to Egypt's throne. He already has a wife Kiya but she is not as bewitching as Nefertiti. Amunhotep and the equally ambitious Nefertiti worship a different god the Aten, and displaces the priests of Amun who control Egypt's wealth.
Things start to go wrong when Kiya had sons and Nefertiti has only daughters, and her sister defies her and moves away from court to be with the man she loves.
An engrossing page-turner, ancient Egypt is brought to life as two royal sisters struggle - one craving ultimate political power, the other desiring only to follow her heart.
The story may be fictional but the accuracy of the historical fact makes this book a really good read.
Book Review: Nefertiti by Michelle Moran - Reviewed by Aik (01 Jun 2011)
In Nefertiti, Michelle Moran has created a fascinating world of ancient Egypt which offers us a glimpse of life in that particular era, through the eyes of Mutnodjmet, Nefertiti's half sister. I can never rave enough about Michelle's superb writing skill and her talent to weave fact and fiction together seamlessly. I've been a great fan of Michelle's since I started reading Cleopatra's Daughter, which is mostly set in Rome.
Nefertiti is famous for her ethereal beauty and charm. She is portrayed as a cunning and ambitious Queen in this novel, and together with her husband Akhenaten, they demolished Egypt's gods and raise a new deity called Aten or the Sun God in their place.
Mutnodjmet is a likable character. She is a herbalist who has a caring heart and is content with a simple life. At first, she is dominated by her sister, but at last, she succeeds in finding her own true love - General Nakhtmin. I pity her when she suffers physically...
Book Review: Nefertiti by Michelle Moran - Reviewed by Brekalilly (25 May 2011)
Wow! There has been some serious research go into this book. I have to say, I never enjoyed learning about history this much! Michelle Moran has taken factual places, people and events from history and from what she has learned about their characters through research, has constructed a beautiful novel. This author has cleverly constructed a world so real you can almost touch it and you feel as if you were standing in the Egyptian palace beside Nefertiti. I love the description of the places in the novel, but most of all the depth of the characters. It’s wonderful and makes you feel an emotional connection with the main character. A great read for teenagers and adults, but definitely a girly book. War, romance, politix, history, this book just bout has it all! I have also read Michelle’s other two books written in this same historical Egyptian style (The Heritic Queen and Cleopatra’s Daughter) and recommend them highly. I haven’t read Madame...
