The Heretic Queen

The Heretic QueenBy: Michelle Moran

Michelle Moran is the international bestselling author of seven historical novels. A native of southern California, she attended Pomona College, then earned a Masters Degree from the Claremont Graduate University. During her six years as a public high school teacher she used her summers to travel around the world, and it was her experiences as a volunteer on archaeological digs that inspired her to write historical fiction. In 2012 Michelle was married in India, inspiring her seventh book, Rebel Queen, which is set in the East. Her hobbies include hiking, traveling, and archaeology. She is also fascinated by archaeogenetics, particularly since her children's heritages are so mixed. But above all these things Michelle is passionate about reading and can often be found with her nose in a good book. A frequent traveler, she currently resides with her husband, son, and daughter in the US. Her books have been translated into more than twenty languages.Citation: http://www.michellemoran.com/about/index.html

About the Author

Biblical Reaction

The main character is Nefertari and the second main character is Ramses (the Great) who became Nefertari's husband.

Main Characters

Nefertari was a forgotten princess left to roam freely in the palace. Soon a palace fire killed the current royal family—except for Nefertari, the niece of, Nefertiti. Her no longer living family have been declared heretics, and no one in Egypt repeats their names. Nefertari is made unimportant as before, but changes are made when she is pulled under the care of Pharaoh’s aunt, and brought to the Temple of Hathor, where she is educated to be a future queen. Soon Nefertari catches the eye of Rameses, and despite her family’s past, they fall in love and wish to marry. All of Egypt opposes the marriage between them due to her past and his future. While political adversity sets the country on edge, Nefertari marries Ramesses the Great. He is also the man who confronts the most Israelite's exodus in history.

Summary

Book Trailer(Fanmade)The Time Period Movie Clip

Being on ancient egypt there are little to no biblical truth in the story, although Rameses has to deal with Moses. If Ramses were to just let the people go, his first son wouldn't have died, but he may not be as famous because he just let his slaves go.

The story takes place in ancient egypt from the near end of Seti's reign and through the reign of Rameses
