Sphinx's Princess
review 1: As the sequel of Sphinx's Princess, it was quite a ride. This book was packed with adventure, intrigue, and romance. Nefertiti is a very strong character, always putting others above herself, and she was not afraid for standing up for others or against them when it came to her life, and the life of innocent others. I love reading Esther's stories of princesses who became legends: She makes their stories amazing even if it's just fictional, she makes it seem as if it was real :)
review 2: This second book was better than the first in some ways, but worse in others, I enjoyed the story and it moved along at a pretty good pace. It did have a few side stories to it that didn't seem to really help along the plot, but were kind of fun and interesting anyways.SPOILER
... moreALERT:The main problem I had with this book was the miraculous recovery that the two main villains in this book had. The author spent the first 75% of the book making you believe in how horrible the villain is, showing over and over again with irrefutable proof, and even giving you a glimpse into their mind of how they think. And then in the last 25% of the book POOF! they do a complete 180 and are the nicest person in the world who no longer has delusions or sees plots against them and can forgive and forget like nothing happened at all. It's very improbable and rather unrealistic, but it did make the whole story feel better when the end came together, so I guess that's why the author wanted to do that. She didn't want you to be hating the character when he died. less

A great story about queen Nefertiti. Great read for young girls.
Not bad. A little too happily ever after for me.
great follow up on the Sphinx's Princess.
I liked the way the story turned out.
Amazing continuation and ending
