The Heretic Queen by Michelle Moran
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is another of Michelle Moran’s historical fiction works following the lives of women we have heard about in a history text book,mbut may not know every much about. This time it’s Ramesses II’s wife Nefertari. Readers are given a look at her younger years, so it feels a little like a YA novel. (We also get a YA feeling in Moran’s Cleopatra’s Daughter). But,the story is good– all big ingredients: love, power, death. And, the writing flows every well. There are a few palace intrigue moments that seem like high school. But then, who said people ever really grow up? All and all, a good summer easy read.
