As one of my favorite historical fiction writers, Moran scores another hit with her story of Nefertari and Ramses the Great in ancient Egypt's Nineteenth Dynasty. When the story opens, Nefer is still in the schoolroom with her pals Ramses and Asha. When Ramses takes Iset as his wife, his aunts Henuttawy and Woserit, begin their political games to make either Iset or Nefer the Chief Wife. Iset is beautiful and produces the first son (who only lives a short time) but Nefer can speak 8 languages, produces twin sons, and is well schooled in manly pursuits such as hunting and sports. When Nefer goes to war with Ramses and his general Asha, she sets the stage for a final showdown between the warring aunts. This captivating novel only reinforces the idea that politics is a bloody sport, no matter what era in time.
