I read Michelle Moran’s first novel, Nefertiti, with my Facebook book club, Historical Fiction Lovers book club. Nefertiti was our Queen of August. We all loved the novel so much that we made The Heretic Queen or selection for November. We all loved it just as much. This novel tells the story of Nefertari, Nefertiti’s niece. She loves Ramses, but her ties to Nefertiti, the heretic, both hold her back from life as a Pharaoh’s wife and put her in a great deal of danger. I found this book so engrossing that I stayed up until 2am one morning because I had to keep finding out what happened over and over again until my eyes could no longer focus. I may love Mutny from Nefertiti a little more than Nefertari, but this novel is in no way inferior to Moran’s first.
