    In an paradoxical twist, I am a novelist who reads studies far nonfiction particularly history than fiction As I learned and about King Tut and his royal line, I found myself becoming and intrigued by the period and its people You have Tutankhamun s father, Akhenaten, who decides to transform Egypt into a monotheistic state and who is married to Nefertiti arguably one of the most beautiful women in history who then produces among his spawn Pharaoh Tutankhamun hands down probably the most famous pharaoh of all times Immediately following Akhenaten s death you have this mad clamor for control first of Tut and then of the throne Following Tutankhamun s death, the throne quickly changes hands falling into the hands of men of various stations and capabilities In addition, there is this tremendous effort to try to erase Akhenaten and his descendents from all of history and to revert Egypt back to polytheism During the same period, you have the Hittite King Suppiluliuma who commits these great sacrileges against his kingdom s charters and the gods including murdering his brother for the throne Among this king s spawn is Mursili II who is deeply religious, claims to be receiving messages from one of their goddesses and who vows to atone for the wrongs of his father no matter the cost After Pharaoh Tutankhamun s death, Queen Ankhesenamen really does send for one of King Suppiluliuma s sons to secure power The Prince he sends, however, is murdered en route and so begins war with Egypt after some letters back and forth trying to get to the bottom of it Through a series of unfortunate but favorable events, Mursili II who no one expects and is still a boy ends up King Under Mursili II, not only does the Hittite kingdom recover from a series of epic disasters but peace is finally made with Egypt under both Horemheb and Ramesses the Great.The Amarna Series explores this period and its figures The series is in three parts Casting the Egyptian slave Ida and the Hittite boy Prince Mursili II as the protagonists, the series spans from the period after Akhenaten s death all the way through the reign of Ramesses It speculates about the how and the why both the fates of the Egyptian kingdom the Hittite kingdom seem so intimately intertwined during this period.Book I follows this time period through to the final year of Pharaoh Ay s reign While the main focus of this book is on Ida and Tutankh s relationship, the fallout from that relationship and the struggle to hide Ida s continued existence from their enemies particularly Horemheb and Suppilu, we see an emergence of a new relationship that of Ida and the then Prince Mursili 6th in line for the throne at the time.

    Amarna Book I Book of Ida, a historical novella by Grea Alexander Amarna Book I Book of Ida, a historical novella by Grea Alexander takes place in Thebes, Upper Egypt in 1324 BC The Pharaoh died mysteriously and was left without a male heir Queen Ankhesenamen s only hope is to make an alliance with the Hittites She can only trust a slave girl, Ida Her father had entrusted scrolls delineating their history to her I gave it four stars only because it needs editing for typos and homonymns That does not reflect on the quality of the writing The story is intriguing I look forward to Book 2 The loneliness, the sadness in him was like a physical force It reached out to her, encircled her, buried itself within her She wanted nothing at that moment than to take the terrible unhappiness away from him I received a complimentary copy from the author That did not change my opinion for this review Link to purchase

    This is a historical romance with the intriguing premise that there was a connection between the last Pharoah of the 18th Dynasty, Tutankhamun, and the great Rameses II of the 19th Dynasty This tale is told through the adventures of Ida ten who had grown up as a playmate of Tutankh and his queen Ankhe.To persuade the reader of the historical bearings, dates are introduced and references scattered that mention Egypt, the Hittites, gypsy witches, and Syria The author then supplies slight commentary about the scenes and characters I found these details somewhat scarce, amounting to not much than the captions on postcards or museum exhibits.Of the main character, we are told that she found true love in the Pharoah She looked into his eyes They were so wise, so intense, so wistful In turn, he says to her, There is something about you, Ida, that makes me feel free, as if I can tell you anything, can share anything with you Ida hesitated, for she wanted to make him understand that there was no going back for her if she made love with him that her heart was greedy and it would never be able to go on as it had been if she gave in to it There follow many scene shifts and, it seems, time rifts as well We are transported from Thebes to Syria to Hattusas Ay, Horem, and Mursilis, along with characters with longer names deploy in and out This reader did not feel any sense that the story at any point actually leaves the same set no sense of the Nile, the Valley of the Kings, the hills around the Hittite capital present day Turkey , or the pleasant countryside of Syria Palestine.When the adventures are almost at an end, Ida is said to be unrecognizable because of the Bedouin dress, her blonde locks and her carriage By that time, this reader had lost any interest in the characters or in the story To the premise and the possibilities of all kinds of middle eastern scenes, cultural themes, and characters, the author seems to have contributed not much than the perfunctory remarks of an overworked and rushed tour guide One wishes for a sense of flesh and blood A great pity, indeed.

    I received this eBook from the author in exchange for an honest review.Oh, how I love historical fiction Ida I wasn t so sure about Ida at first I knew she was meant to be a slave but she was pretty dang bossy for a slave She was rough and harsh She seemed very unwilling to be a slave girl born with nobility in her blood.Eventually, though, life tamed her a bit She became the head slave and a beloved friend of the Queen Ankhesenamun and childhood friend of Pharaoh Tutankhamun, and eventually his forbidden and secret love Quite an admirable feat for this woman to bear and live with.The moment that Ida chose to be Tut s wife of his heart, her life was set for an entirely new path All the supporting characters played their parts well for Ida s story to flourish I enjoyed the happiness that Pharaoh Tutankhamun before his unfortunate death at such a young age, the secret that Ida carried to as much safety as she could muster, and the eventual just desserts for the scheming Queen Ankhe.This is a short, sweet historical fiction with a lovely touch of romance with one of Ancient Egypt s most famous Pharaoh s.

    A Great Trip While some other reviewers have complained about historical license, I must say it suits this story well One thing about reading historical fiction is that sometimes you must be willing to take a little creative license, and this doesn t take it too far, just enough to add a little extra depth, which I like I remember growing up and seeing the King Tut exhibit back in Charlotte, NC in the late eighties This took me back to that place This has war, palace intrigue and drama of the Egyptian kind I highly recommend this book if you are into historical fiction or love stories about Ancient Egypt Much better than the recent attempt to depict Moses in Exodus I must say Give it a go You won t be disappointed

    I liked how it was made into a small story, a story of history in the world the Author is building The start and the end of the book makes this possible It adds a nice touch and make it a bit different It was a good fast easy read The relationships did feel a little odd in places, with the women mostly I couldn t really work them out Not sure whether it was just their culture or they just didn t quite feel real.The romance was a fairly big part of the story just as a heads up It added to the story and had a purpose It didn t feel forced or over the top, there are quite a few sex scenes.

    I won this ebook along with 2 others from the same author from LibraryThing Members Giveaway in exchange for an honest review And boy am I glad that I did I am hooked An ancient story written in a contemporary style but captivating all the same Amarna Book 1 Book of Ida, follows the trials of Idaten, a slave girl, a childhood playmate and sweetheart of two well known characters from ancient Egyptian history The book s language may be modern but the story is as ancient as time itself, conspiracy, murder, spying and plotting and in all this betrayal, love still manages to survive So glad I won this book and eagerly awaiting the next in this series.

    I received this book as an ebook free from the author through LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review This is a fascinating story and I do enjoy reading historical fiction about Egypt I had difficulty at times following the story It was quite choppy and the characters and story didn t seem to be fully developed I do prefer reading this type of story as a longer complete story with the story and characters fully developed rather than short portions in several books I have difficulty following the story and remembering all the characters and their relationships with these novellas.

    I was given a free copy of the e book in exchange for my honest review Thank you to the author, Grea Alexander.Fascinating story Some of the modern day phrases in the book were a little jarring, given the time period I m not a fan of multiple novella storytelling, or books broken into pieces I realize the cliffhanger ending was designed to suck me into the next novella or book, but I didn t feel like this part of the story was done.

    What a unique way to tell a story, normally I don t read this genre, but I was captivated with Ida, a slave girl to the queen and how she fell into one nightmare after the other for loving her childhood friend Book 2 should be very interesting
