This is a truly excellent read. Historically speaking, there are many gaps and unanswered questions about this period in history: what happened to Nefertiti after she disappeared from the records?, who was Smenkhare?, among others. Ms. Moran uses logic and research to fill in these gaps with viable theories.
My one complaint with Nefertiti is that it leaves me longing for a sequel. What happened to Nakhtmin? What happened to Tutankhamen? How did Ay become Pharaoh? How did Mutny end up married to Horemheb?
So many questions. But, then, that is what a really good book does. It leaves you wanting more.
If you like historical fiction, don’t miss Nefertiti.
