    In an paradoxical twist, I am a novelist who reads studies far nonfiction particularly history than fiction As I learned and about King Tut and his royal line, I found myself becoming and intrigued by the period and its people You have Tutankhamun s father, Akhenaten, who decides to transform Egypt into a monotheistic state and who is married to Nefertiti arguably one of the most beautiful women in history who then produces among his spawn Pharaoh Tutankhamun hands down probably the most fa [...]

    A Great Trip While some other reviewers have complained about historical license, I must say it suits this story well One thing about reading historical fiction is that sometimes you must be willing to take a little creative license, and this doesn t take it too far, just enough to add a little extra depth, which I like I remember growing up and seeing the King Tut exhibit back in Charlotte, NC in the late eighties This took me back to that place This has war, palace intrigue and drama of the Eg [...]

    I was given a free copy of the e book in exchange for my honest review Thank you to the author, Grea Alexander.Fascinating story Some of the modern day phrases in the book were a little jarring, given the time period I m not a fan of multiple novella storytelling, or books broken into pieces I realize the cliffhanger ending was designed to suck me into the next novella or book, but I didn t feel like this part of the story was done.

    What a unique way to tell a story, normally I don t read this genre, but I was captivated with Ida, a slave girl to the queen and how she fell into one nightmare after the other for loving her childhood friend Book 2 should be very interesting

    Excellent read, the story is tight and concise There are no extra fluffy sections, each chapter surges the story forward I just wish it was longer Looking forward to the next book in the series

    This is a historical romance with the intriguing premise that there was a connection between the last Pharoah of the 18th Dynasty, Tutankhamun, and the great Rameses II of the 19th Dynasty This tale is told through the adventures of Ida ten who had grown up as a playmate of Tutankh and his queen Ankhe.To persuade the reader of the historical bearings, dates are introduced and references scattered that mention Egypt, the Hittites, gypsy witches, and Syria The author then supplies slight commentar [...]

    I love books set in Ancient Egypt New Kingdom, Old Kingdom, Roman period I read them all So, I was really looking forward to this book Unfortunately, I just couldn t get into it The story has enough historical inaccuracies that I wasn t able to suspend my disbelief enough to enjoy it A ten year old Tut was having a relationship with a servant The author s writing style is not to my tastes either The dialogue is clunky in many places E.g My position at least will be enough to keep me and my daugh [...]

    I received this book as an ebook free from the author through LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review This is a fascinating story and I do enjoy reading historical fiction about Egypt I had difficulty at times following the story It was quite choppy and the characters and story didn t seem to be fully developed I do prefer reading this type of story as a longer complete story with the story and characters fully developed rather than short portions in several books I have difficulty follow [...]
