THE HERETIC QUEEN by Michelle Moran

Crown Publishing Group
Genre: Historical Fiction
Rating: Very Good
ISBN: 9780307381750, $24.95, 400 pp.

The Heretic Queen is a fictionalized historical novel about the young princess Nefertari, and her challenges in the court of Ramesses II to become his queen and Chief Wife. The struggle for power is always at the heart of political intrigue, and so, it is at the heart of this tale.

Michelle Moran has researched and written a most entertaining and informative novel about ancient Egypt. There’s romance, religion, warfare, and palace intrigue. The novel is well written with an educated style. I enjoyed reading it and can recommend it to anyone interested in historical novels.
