WHAT IS THIS COVER ON GOODREADS. I CAN'T EVEN. (thank god the author changed it)

So, despite my reading lists, I'm not a super super huge fan of the whole Amarna period, because I feel like it's been covered to death (unless someone wants to write me some dirty dirty Horemheb/Mutnodjmet romance, cause they are my historical OTP for no good reason at all). This book is about Ankhesenpaaten/Ankhesenamun, the wife of Tutankaten/Tutankhamun.

I thought the author did a great job with the research. Lik

This is an interesting novel of the little known Egyptian Queen Ankhesenamun, daughter to Nefertiti and wife to her half-brother Tutankhamun.
Ankhesenamun was born into a unique period of Egyptian history in which her father Akhenaten's monotheistic cult tried to purge Egypt of it's many Gods in favor of worshipping Aten, a Sun God. Having read novels about Nefertiti and Akhenaten before I was familiar with the period of history that we find ourselves in at the beginning of the book. What I foun

I won't go into a synopsis because you can read those yourself in the book description. For $3 this was a fantastic read, a treasure of period detail and excellent character developement. I agree with a prior reviewer that King Tut was often referred to as some sort of hunky guy, when in fact we now know him to be a bit of a skinny kid based on his mummy analysis. I was also slightly shocked that it included the birth of a son (which is highly doubtful), but given the limited information on the ...more

I REALLY liked this book!! I love pretty much anything Egyptian, so this was so up my ally. The book follows Ankhesenamun from about the age of 5 until the age of about 22. If you don't know, she was married to the famous Tutankhamun. It starts out in the Armana period, where her father, Akhenaten, and her mother, Nefertiti, ruled. Then it goes into how her and Tut change everything back to the original gods and their life together until his death, and what happens after his death.

I am such a s

Absolutely terrific..Makes me want to see Egypt again. I wish there were more books on this subject. Tut's queen is little known about in History- but Ms. Liaci makes her a little bit more relatable (and Knowable!) in her wonderful book.

Good story interesting period in history

I thought the story interesting and the author's description of life in ancient Egypt felt true. However there are numerous grammatical errors that are distracting.

Great story

Great story but editing was awful! I have never read anything published with so many grammar errors, misspellings and missing/incorrect words.
Brenna
Absolutely wonderful historical fiction. If you like Egyptian history this is great. I am now hesitant to read other stories about these characters because I love how the author told their story.
Emma Comer
It's really good gets a like hot but other then that great book

Enjoyable Read

I chose this book because I enjoy books about Egyptian women in history. if you enjoyed Lilly of the Nile you will enjoy this book also.
Priscilla
I have always been interested in ancient Egypt and their monarchy. I wish we knew more about Ankhesenamun, and what happened to her.
Gemna Rokpony
I was annoyed at the beginning of this book because the characters were very young children who were ridiculously precocious. As the book continued and the characters aged, this ceased to be a problem and I began to enjoy the writing. I have to give the author major props because she had me cheering so much for Tutankhamun and Ankhesenamun that I completely forgot they were half-siblings.

I love historical fiction but this was the first book I've ever read that didn't take place in France or England....and I was not disappointed, this was such an interesting and entertaining story! Couldn't put it down!
