While this book is obviously not going to be terribly accurate, since a lot of the story was lost to history, it was a great interpretation of what it might have been like to live during the Amarna period of Ancient Egypt. The story is from the perspective of Nefertiti's younger sister, Mutnodjmet, so at first I was a bit put off, expecting it to be a rip-off of The Other Boleyn Girl. Definitely was happy to see it wasn't. Some readers have complained about the way Moran chose to characterize Nefertiti and Akhenaten, but it seemed a realistic enough possibility that I didn't mind.

The part of this book that shined the most for me was how vivid her portrayal of life in Ancient Egypt is. She did a great job of bringing the era to life!
