New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland.

I read this one after The Heretic Queen and wished I had read them in order. Overall it was historically accurate except for the connection of Nefertiti's sister becoming queen and her offspring leading to The Heretic Queen.

Nefertari catches the eye of the Crown Prince, and despite her family's history, they fall in love and wish to marry. Yet all of Egypt opposes this union between the rising star of a new dynasty and the fading star of an old, heretical one.

While political adversity sets the country on edge, Nefertari becomes the wife of Ramesses the Great. Destined to be the most powerful Pharaoh in Egypt, he is also the man who must confront the most famous exodus in history.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and thought the voice of Cassandra Campbell was well suited for the parts. I listened to this one before Nefertiti and wished now that I had read them in order.
