Booklist Review
Picking up where Sphinx's Princess (2009) left off, Nefertiti is escaping Thebes with her secret love, Prince Amenophis, and her slave girl Nara. The three are sailing to Dendera to reunite with Nefertiti's family, hoping they can save Nefertiti from her charges of treason. The villainous crown prince Thutmose, Nefertiti's betrothed, relentlessly pursues the trio. Turns of events leave the door open for Nefertiti and Amenophis to finally be together, and Nefertiti is still the same strong-willed, independent girl based on the mysterious Egyptian queen. This sequel does not stand alone, but fans of the first book will want to know Nefertiti's fate.--Yusko, Shauna Copyright 2010 Booklist
