This future she knows for certain - the great sun city will be her undoing.
Amidst a power struggle between Pharaoh and the priesthood of Amun, Queen Nefertiti helps the ill-prepared new Pharaoh, Amenhotep, enact his father's plan to regain power for the throne. But what seemed a difficult task only becomes more grueling when Amenhotep loses himself in his radical obsessions.
Standing alone to bear the burden of a failing country and stem the tide of a growing rebellion, Nefertiti must choose between her love for Pharaoh and her duty to Egypt in this dramatic retelling of a story forgotten by time.

"If you're a fan of all things ancient Egyptian, from Nefertiti's bust to King Tut's tomb, this book is for you...Merewether provides a very believable construction of the family relationships and the political and religious happenings during Nefertiti's childhood, her marriage as a teenager, and the many years she sat beside her husband, and at times in place of him, on the throne of a very large and powerful empire." - Readers' Favorite
