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 enjoyed the first novel, Nefertiti, but The Heretic Queen blows that one out of the water. I couldn't stop listening to this book and I found myself really caring about Nefertari, her feelings, and things she deals with. The attention to detail in this book was also excellent. For example, Moran makes religion an underlying theme and also makes their religion believable, so that you find yourself understanding how it motivates the characters. The narrator is also very good and I liked listening to her. I really loved this book.
