The story of the most powerful woman to rule Egypt, long before Cleopatra came along, the story of Nefertiti is told through the eyes of her sister Mutny.

 

Although Nefertiti mesmerises and manipulates all those around her with her beauty, Mutny is the one person immune to Nefertiti’s beguiling ways, something that will have devastating effects on both sisters. A great historical novel about a powerful, awe-inspiring dynasty.

Nefertiti Synopsis

When the Crown Prince of Egypt needs a wife, the beautiful, ambitious and connected Nefertiti is his mother's choice. She quickly becomes accustomed to the opulence of her life. As Queen of the world's first great empire at the height of its power, all her dreams are realised.

Beguiling and wilful, Nefertiti is soon as powerful as the Pharaoh himself. But when her husband breaks with a thousand years of tradition, defying the priests and the military, it will take all Nefertiti's wiles to keep the nation from being torn apart.

Watching from the shadows, her sister, Mutny, detests the back-stabbing nature of palace life, and as she dreams of a simple life in the countryside, sher records her sister's transformation from teenage girl to living goddess.

But Nefertiti's star quality can only take her so far, and when she's prepared to sacrifice her sister to strenghten her power, the two women become locked in a feud which only death can break...
