    1. This is going to appear out of place among all these 5 stars reviews, I know, and I am seriously questioning whether we all read the same book. There are some things in this novel that I feel some readers may want to be warned about. First of all, the story is about Tutankhamun's widow (and if one does their research, it is said she is also his half sister as well as Nefertiti's daughter) , Ankhesenpaaten and her struggle to retain her throne against her aunt, Mutnedjmet (Nefertiti's sister). Th [...]


    2. I went to several review sites prior to purchasing my latest batch of reads. I've noticed one lady on almost every book review site possible dissing this book because of the sex scenes. They really aren't as bad as she makes them out to be and one wonders what her agenda is. I mean, she has taken a lot of time to write all of her one star reviews. In one, she states she has done her Egyptology research at, of all places, ! As you can see, though, the folks that have read the novel and enjoyed it [...]



    3. Truly Disgusting! I am appalled by this book. I have never in all my years read a book so distasteful. I want to warn anyone who thinks this is a historical fiction book. I think it should be sold as erotica or in that category. I am not saying it doesn’t have historical facts, however it has incest and so many sex scenes in it that it takes away from the historic value. The worst part is the copulating dwarfs and the very explicit description of the male dwarf’s genitals. ( I have to wonder [...]


    4. This book is FICTION and based upon a time in ancient history when the human body was not regarded with the same Puritan ethics that modern-day readers exhibit. Therefore the sexual scenes are normal for that historical period. The ancient Egyptians had their standards of modesty and so have we but to judge their period by our strait-laced opinions is wrong. As for the "incest", that happened but not as often as we in the 21st century believe. To learn more about what we know of Egyptian live, I [...]


    5. The writing, especially the details about ancient Egypt, was pretty accessible. However, I stopped around the 50-page mark. It seemed pretty trashy. The story was broken into several threads covering several classes in ancient Egyptian society. And each thread had an element of violence/sex/violent sex that was off-putting, odd, and distracted from the story.I was repelled and had no desire to continue.


    6. just posted this review on . If you had considered reading this book, I advise against it!I am someone who really, really loves the Amarna time period, so I can say I have a fairly good knowledge of the time, although I'm not an Egyptologist.Let me list the things I liked about this book:- Great cover- Very readable printThings I didn't like:-Ankhesenpaatan. While I truly believe you can detest a main character but still like a book, it just didn't work out that way for this book. She was just s [...]


    7. I'm truly shocked. Not by the novel, but by some of the reviews of it. Before reading this story, I checked out the reviews as usual, and not a few of them went on and on about the supposed depravity of the book. That being the case, I asked myself: Self, are you interested in reading a little erotica right now? Turns out, I was. So I settle down all comfy cozy in my bed prepared to be titillated and (hopefully) a little shocked. How very disappointing. The was no sex in the sex scenes. Oh, the [...]


    8. So I am going back and reading the reviews on this book and if people are so offended by the sex in this book, then maybe they should stop reading about Ancient Egypt! It was a way of life during that time period, when women were looked upon only as a path to gain an heir. And if that had to be with your parents/ grandparents/ siblings, then so be it. All of that being said, I did not like Ankhesenamun. I thought she came off as a spoiled, mean little brat. I can't say if her behavior is histori [...]


    9. I had almost forgotten about this book, and honestly I wish I still had. It's honestly disgusting the way they portrayed both Ankhesenamun and Tutankamun, particularly the way Ankhesenamun was acting like some sort of drunken, sex crazed whore for the majority of the book, who does nothing but mock and harass Tutankhamun for being weak and pathetic.I definitely do NOT recommend this book to anyone interested in Ancient Egypt, Tutankamun or Ankhesenamun.


    10. This book started out pretty good, but it lost me when King Tut got molested by his half-sister. A few pages later, this snowball kept rolling to hell in the munchkin copulation scene. Seriously? I wanted to read an Egyptian novel, not an erotic novel. This was most certainly one of the worst books I have ever read. The author literally writes like an eleven year old. And the erotic scenes aren't even really described properly.
